What did you put on your floor? In an earlier post you talked about an epoxy floor but it almost looks like plywood.

Oh, your shop looks great. I like the tables and counter top, nothing complicated but they look very functional.

I can’t get the link to your web site to work, i would like to see it.

Larry, I did go with an epoxy finish, it may look like ply in one spot because there is a rectangular outline of where I spray painted something, woops. I love the floor tho, easy on the eyes, and easy to sweep up. I fixed the link so it should work now. My current center work bench is just particle board. It works ok, but I desperately need to build a good heavy duty one, just need to make some time!

Thanks for all the compliments, glad you all like it. Yes it is a little bit clean in the pics, but its not always that way. I gave it a hardcore cleaning this week and then snapped some pics, although I do find that once you have a clean shop its easier to keep it up, then to let it all pile up and then do a big clean. Right now, it’s a fun little side business and helps keep me busy in the winter and slow times since my other job is farming. I enjoy both jobs, so it really is a win win, and the lord has blessed me! And to ChefHdan you can go right a head with the planer idea, it saves a ton of space, and works quite well, just make sure they’re both right at the same height.

Awesome shop. I just came in from the shop and haven’t quite finished a little plywood table very much like yours. I just added a top coat of hardboard and an oak band. I’ll post it when it’s done.
This looks like a very user friendly layout. I may rearrange based on this. Thanks for the post.

Wow! I missed the significance of what ChefHDAN said about planer. Took a second look and realized that the concept of using the planer as a support for long board for the SCMS (and vice versa) would work great in my shop. I was always wondering where to put my Ridgid planer. Currently it sits on a HF lift table, but I want to use the lift table for projects. So much to learn from seeing other people’s shops. need to get my shop up soon.

Thanks again for all the compliments. When I designed the layout, I tried to make the most use of the space I had. So far I’ve been very happy with the set up. It is proving to be a nice little side business, and the list of jobs is steadily growing. Thanks for all your help on here.

Have you liked the epoxy floor ? We are acid etching my floor today to prep for 2-part. Has it held up well? Chip easily ? etc.

Nice shop. I wish I had the room for more materials storage.

Thanks everyone for the positive feed back! I really like how it’s set up, but in all honesty i wish it was bigger!!!
As far as the business, it’s going good. I had planned on it being a side business, and it has been that for sure, plenty of work! Working on a large kitchen cabinet currently for a customer.

The epoxy floor is nice, except for one spot, by the door. I don’t think I got that part etched good enough, and it is starting to peel in a couple spots. It is also the most heavily traveled area as well. The rest of it has held up great, and sweeps up real nice and easy.

In my opinion, it’s never “way to clean”. I’m an anal nutcase after finishing a project. I love to clean and organize.
