Wow, that’s an incredible setup! I think this may be the cleanest, nicest, best laid-out home shop I’ve ever seen. The dust collection looks phenomenal… do you have to wear a respirator/mask for any operations now? I’m envious of it all, especially the workbench and the huge shop space.

Yeah, I gotta admit, it’s pretty cool! I do need to wear a respirator from time to time for things like routing, turning, and sometimes sanding (depending on which sander I use) but the collector catches most. I also have an ambient air cleaner that I don’t think made it into the pictures.

The shop is not for production. It’s my personal shop. The being said, I have recently started taking commissions. So I guess you could say it’s semi pro. The drum sander is a part of Grizzly’s regular catalog.

Nice shop and nice to have the assembly tables. I don’t think I read how many square feet this shop is. Looks like you may get your daily exercise in. That’s good…..........................

The shop area without the finishing room, bathroom and loft is 30×30 feet so 900 square feet.

That is a beautiful work area, Jeff. Excellent planning! I love all the custom made storage areas you have too. I can tell it took you quite a while to get it setup just the way you want it. Great job!

I also built my shop from the ground. The plans called for underground vac and elect but the county wouldn’t approve it. Not sure why. I was stuck with the overhead DC hose which doesn’t make any sense since all the connections typically low.

I’m not sure why they wouldn’t let you do it either. It is definitely the way to go. It might have something to do with not being able to clean it out very easily, but if your build in a clean out at the terminal end, it should pass inspection. Strange.
