« Part 14: Stepping Back and Taking Stock Part 15 of New Home Workshop series Part 16: This Is What Was Supposed To Be About »

With the DC system mostly complete, I decided to address two issues that have been on my list. First I finished trimming out the small partition I put up to created a vestibule/airlock of sorts to prevent shop dust from heading up to the main living space.

The wall/door have been up for a few months now, but it wasn’t trimmed out. So nothing fancy here. Just some common pine I picked up for this and to cut up for shoe molding around the perimeter of the shop, which still needs to be done.

Then I addressed an annoyance that’s been bothering me – making a home for the miter sled and Kreg pocket hole jig. Both have been getting shuffled around the shop for the past few months.

Then I solved the issue of what to do with the Shark Guard and hose, when not needed for a cut. Glad I save all the junk I do. I ripped out a bunch of telephone cabling and saved the various pieces of hardware. This cable hanger proved to be perfect. I just used the edge of the belt sander to cove the back of the bracket to conform to the 6” pipe.

There was no way I was taping that wall, but maybe one day it will get some paint. lol

But overall, there more progress in the shop :)

All of my sawdust has been frivolous lol

The section of wall to the left of the door is slotted for bench hooks and smaller sleds :)

Bill, that is a nice solution for the SharkGuard. I may have to borrow that one. :)

Thanks and you’re welcome to it Art :) Say, maybe you can help me out with something regarding the Shark Guard. Is there a way to get it to stand out of the way when you need to get a measurement off of the blade? ie, height and or distance to the fence? The guard that came with the Unisaw can flip out of the way for this. The travel on the SG seems to be limited in this regard.

Check that. The guard that came on the Unisaw has spring clips that hold the guard up so you can get those measurements. I find the SG to be a little fidgety. Not quite as easy to install and the OEM guard.

Nicely done Bill. The DC job was work, IMO. But the stuff you’re doing now is fun in my book :-)) I could probably spend an eternity just setting up shop and making jigs and such and never actually build anything… if my wife would let me…

I see it took you the same amount of time to make the sled/Kreg jig rack as it took Willie to drag a cushion over to the doorway to supervise ;-)

Nice to see the shop progress (the organization and floor space are great!) ...but I do check for Willie in the pics. :) Glad to see he has his spot…as noted “to supervise”

Bill, I just sit the shroud on the bolt.

It is functional if not elegant. :/
