This is my new shop. Its been in the making for 1 year now. Will be ready for me to move my equipment in by the end of Nov. 2011. Ive been working in a one car garage for 30 years building furniture clocks and cabinets. Its January and Im installing the dust collection system. Went with a Grizzly 2hp cyclone.

For more info on the dust collection system check it out in my blogs. The total building is 1200 sq ft. The wood shop itself is 700 sq ft. Plenty of room for me. Here are a few shots of it now.

It’s a beautiful shop building and will make you a grand shop.
