I am slowly building my shop and looking forward to retirement so I can spend more time out there learning to use the CL tools I have acquired. I am busy now refurbishing the tools, and working on shop furniture, honey-do’s and learning to use Sketchup.

Update, it’s now 2017, I have upgraded to some new tools, somehow the shop has apparently shrunk after a rain or something, I’m always short of room! Biggest plus is probably the dust collection, originally an HF 2hp unit, Rikon impeller, SDD and 4” PVC – I have plenty of suck even at the SawStop, which is the longest run. I am blessed to be able to just vent a 6” pipe outside, so no filters, etc. I also run 2 Hunter HEPA filters up on the wall on a timer for 4 hours every day. The Mini-Split Heat Pump works great, very efficient, really keeps the environment comfortable and helps dry the wood. I have included a rare shot – the lumber storage in a fairly clean condition – I was shifting things around….. again!

Looks like you have a lot of place. That is a good problem to have.

Back in the late 80’ – early 90’s we lived in St Peters. (I managed the warehouse for Snap-on Tools in Earth City) We really liked living in that area.

Nice shop!
