Hello, this is my shop. It is 20×40 with an 8ft ceiling. I have been woodworking for almost 18 years and enjoy building just about anything. I am pretty well set up but still have a few thing on the wish list, such as a wide drum sander and a better belt/disc sander. I am getting ready to build “the wood wisperers” assembly table to replace my old one and also hope to come up with a better miter saw stand design. I also like to do welding/ metal fabrication and auto repair. That’s why the front of the shop is open. My lumber is stored in a barn behind the shop along with my mobile miter saw and mobile tablesaw. Not shown in the pics are my dust collector and air compressor which are in a closet behind the shop. If any one has any suggestion let me know. I am always looking for ways to improve it.

-- Stan, South Carolina,

Fantastic shop!

You are blessed indeed to have so much space, so many nice machines, and the ability to be able to use all of it to create quality work.

Stan, Great shop and I join others in drooling. I live in Seneca. Are you a member of the Greenville or Piedmont clubs?

Steve, I am not a member of either. I am familiar with the greenville club but not the piedmont. Do they have a web site?

Hello Stanley,
Nice layout. I had a question about your dust collection system. I see you have a perimeter setup…but I didn’t see where your collector was…do you have a cyclone or do you have a bag dust collector system? Aren’t the 90’s killing you for power in you collection lines? Thanks, Todd
