The beginning stages of converting the 1920s-era carriage house (17×12) into a workable wood shop. I added five 20-amp circuits and (one 220v) and then OSB’d the wall. I’ve been building cabinets out of shop birch and making the counters from 2×1/2” MDF with dadoed edges which take red oak. I am currently working on the dust collection system, then will start filling out the cabinets with shelves and organization! I didn’t go to the effort to build the cabinets intact the first time, I am just going to add simple shelves to what I have instead of fancy dovetailed drawers.
2/13/11: Added the main line of dust collection, will add grounding wire and the accessory connections. Next step is to make the innards of the router console, then run the vac line into the main router chamber.
4/12/11: Received my Mini Max MM16 band saw! SO EXCITED. Running the dust collection to the other side of the garage, which has been covered in OSB and electrified.
9/14/11: The first two cabinets I’ve ever built are hanging – rabbeted corners, super strong. Will post pics once I have hung a few more…
9/22/11: Uppers complete on one side of the garage. It’s awesome to have a place to put things.
