So I finally thought that I would post some pictures of my shop, as everyone says it is never actually “completed” but I am pretty happy with it.

Looks like a good space with some good tools.

Nice space how do you keep it that clean? Your nest project sheetrock and paint the ceiling white. You’ll be surprised at the gain in light

Great workshop….I am envious. I have to share mine with a car and a truck. My favorite part of yours is the “sittin’ and thinkn’ chair….a guy needs a place to mull over that next project, or just nap. Famous quote….”Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits”.

I notice what appears to be a dehumidifier in your first picture. I see you have a nice dust collection system, so this may not be a problem for you, but does dust pose any problems for the dehumidifier?
Also, based on the signs on the wall, I can’t believe I don’t see a beer cooler er refrigerator in your shop.
Very nice work space. It looks like it has good lighting. That makes a big difference.

Looks like you got a nice shop there! P.S. Nice drill press! I have the same thing!

I see a major problem. There is no saw dust anywhere which means not enough work is going on. LOL Now get to work.
Very nice, I wish I had the ability to run my dust extractor around the ceiling to everything.

docholiday, if you look closely in the corner of the first picture, I believe you will see a small brown fridge .

Nice shop. Glad to see someone else using the smaller portable power tools. They really do a fine job if you set them up correctly. That is basically the same set up that I have. But your chair looks more comfortable than mine. But I have to let my wife park in my shop. And I’m not about to have sharp, pointy darts for her to throw around either. She has amazing aim depending on the target.

It must have been rough having to drink all that beer for the wall coverings. I see a few spots you missed; better get to work.

re: using smaller portable power tools….. I like! AND concur with the philospophy that properly set up they are capable for good quality work (unless made monday morning in oriental countries….)
I like CDN/US portable shop tools, getting to be antiques these days. They can also be taken on site fairly easily.
yer dust collection system gave me a “eureka” moment. Inspiration as to how to upgrade mine from multiple flex hoses! Thamks….been waiting for the epiphany!
