Congradulations, maybe I missed it, but I didn’t see the 4 “Great Idea” Winners.

Thanks, all!

Woochuck—yeah…they haven’t announced ‘em yet…the email notification from them said…
“The four “great ideas” awards are still pending. If you won one of them, we’ll let you know.”
This was as of yesterday afternoon. Not sure when they’ll have those posted.

Great Shop and congrats to you.

You put a lot of thought and work into it. It looks bigger than it is. I just received my new Delta 50-760 1 1/2 hp dust collector yesterday and was thinking of using the 6” S&D pipe. How do you like it? My shop is a one car garage about 12×20. I’m going to renovate this winter and want to do it right.

Bob—the S&D pipe is working just great for me…at this point I would definitely do it the same way.

I’m fortunate to have witness this shop journey from start to finish. I cannot express how much work Pat has put into this well thought out and efficient shop. This accomplishment is well deserved, as a fellow woodworker its been a joy to watch Pat express his joy of woodworking. Congrat Pat now can I have my key….LOL Blkcherry
