Cochese my brotha,

Just checked this thread out, man you did a heck of a job with that shop.  I like using the T-111 panels for the interior walls.I was thinking of doing the same, I have a dumb question, why didnt you paint the panels white? I was going to inorder to brighten the shop up with the white walls being able to reflect the light and brighten it up.

I just found out about those LEDs replacing the Fluorescents. I found out about them on a recent trip to Oregon. I have enough light in my shop already but when I start replacing them Ill be definately going with the LEDs.

Well done mate very nice job [not worthy]

Thanks. I may paint the walls something at some point, but even just the two lights right now are so bright and throw enough light that I haven't felt the need. It might actually border on too much light when I add another pair. That's truly how bright it is in there. That one pic of the hand plane till from October 13 was taken before dawn. It's like turning on the sun when just these two fixtures come on. They are 4100 lumens each.

Here's the link, the description says 4k lumen, but the box says 4100. Either way it works.

Almost everything is moved over at this point. Still some little things to sort out, plus some things still to go structurally like more insulation, a ceiling, stairs, external wall panels and the roof. A little shop tour of what is what so far.


Hose reel installed at a reasonable spot. 50', so it will cover anything on both floors and a good ways outside of the shop too.


Temporarily have a drain setup with this hose and a ball valve so I don't have to go upstairs often.


The last bit of wall to be put up is hiding behind my rails. I need to get the long rail, and I have no idea where it will go when I do.



Clockwise around the shop from the entrance. My clamp corner with new rack, fire extinguisher and first aid box, switches for the lights, dust extractor, and air compressor (both upstairs). A Harbor Freight (w/ Powermatic riser) bandsaw and Ridgid drill press serve me well for now.



MFT that will get a syscart at some point for more storage, my CT Midi, and my streaming TV and Chrome OS computer/monitor.



Holtzapffel-style bench made of fir with some horrible storage underneath. That finish cabinet up above I'm not happy with the location.



Left side of my miter station. I think this will get a comprehensive redo at some point. Or maybe pieces of it. Ladder for temporary access upstairs.



Hitachi C12RSH (sprayer of dust), I wouldn't mind putting a Kapex in here for accuracy and dust at some point. There is a Dewalt 735 below that in a flip cart, and a Triton 3HP in the router table.



Delta 36-725 for the saw, good except for dust collection. Old Craftsman 6-1/4" jointer I found on Craigslist, and my OSS and HCM. Harbor Freight DC and HF compressor upstairs.

@Cochese looking good, and just in time for winter. I need to get a streaming video setup out in the shop myself, thanks for reminding me. 2 suggestions FWIW:

1. Find some way to extend a deck out from the double doors, even if it's only 5-6', @ the same floor height. Takes advantage of the double door & a huge improvement in good weather to be able to roll stuff outside and expand the shop's working area:



2: French cleats french cleats french cleats. Don't like the position of the cabinet, just move it. 'Nuff said.

Hope you enjoy the fruits of your labor.

As of 10/17 I am out of the Dog business and pursuing other distractions. Thanks for a fun ride!

Wife and I discussed a deck about a month ago. I'm not sure when it will come about, it may have to be after the old shop comes down, depending on how big she wants it. It will be multi-purpose, can be used for cutting down sheet goods or lounging around with a fire pit.

Not too terribly concerned with french cleats at the moment. Used them extensively in the old shop, have pretty much planned everything out here. The finish cabinet is just something that is slightly out of proper proportion to use where I want it, but I may do so anyway.

Put the first piece of trim up and a drip cap to control water coming through the top of the door.




Ceiling insulation.




Something important to me in this new shop was having full access to my workbench for the first time since shortly after I built it. I was able to bring this in the shop and set it up without having to move multiple tools unlike before.

Time to put the ceiling in. 5mm plywood underlayment (light, and looks really good for being this cheap).





Six of nine panels in, I can now finally put in the ladder.



Wide, and a heavy weight rating so I can get stuff in and out.






Because I had a feeling the outswing would hit either my miter saw wall or the MFT, I chose the MFT and I was right. At least I can move this, and it just means I have a reason to make an MFT syscart now.



The ceiling is complete except for trim at this point, particularly around the outside where the panels don't have anything to nail into. Bit disappointed that the ladder door doesn't line up exactly with the opening, but I may fit that down the road.

Next up: dust ducts.

Decided on sewer PVC vs 30ga duct, and it started to get installed today.


45 to 45 jogs around the ceiling joists.


Nothing is permanently installed except the long sweep 90 to the pipe below.


Testing...


The miter saw branch. Might also be used for the overarm table saw collection. Some expensive plastic here.


Except for some foil tape, the upper part on this side is done so the filter could go back up.

Did you do anything to prevent static electricity build-up in the PVC?

This is an interesting thread - I'm following it although I think this is the first comment.

My research on it said it was basically a placebo in a hobbyist-size shop.

"Nothing is permanently installed except the long sweep 90 to the pipe below."

A pair of 45s would have less flow restriction and less chance of something getting
caught at the bend.

The sweep is almost exactly the same as the two 45s I tested. At least with the height I was working with.

That's good to hear.  I bought those same lights for my garage based shop, but have not installed them yet.

I have not installed them either, I took one out of the box, plugged it in and held it up. It made the rest of the garage looked dark almost. I’ll let you know how 18 of these lights do hopefully sooner than later

This is the first bit of cold since I got the ceiling insulation all taken care of, so I was interested to see what the heat loss was overnight. It got down to about 45F, so not fantastic but not horrible either. Will be very interested to see what happens this winter, particularly after the attic insulation and exterior panels and shingles get on. May buy one of those attic ladder tents too.



PVC trick I picked up.


Decided to change up the main branch a little for better efficiency and to save a few bucks.





This is the tedious part. I'm so close to making sawdust but instead I'm making PVC shards.

Insulating the doors, getting the last things in place, and finally upgrading from my cordless trim router.

You've done a great job in a relatively short amount of time.  Looks like a shop you can enjoy for years!

[ Specified attachment is not available ]@Cochese ,  I liked your clamp rack so well I made a version of it for my shop.  It fits a lot of clamps (my longest ones go on the left side and not in picture as they are in use at the moment). 

Thanks for the inspiration! 

Regards,
Gerald

Appreciate the kind words. I realized I haven't posted any updates in a long time, and approaching the one year anniversary of the start date I needed to update and get to finish before this happens.

Dec 8


Mar 24 - a shelf for my keyboard, mouse, and remotes. Simple French cleat.


Second set of lights.


Apr 8. Finally a MFT Sysport, so that it can be moved out of the way for the attic ladder.


Apr 28-Now. Finally getting the siding on.







Going back and putting in real walls in the attic for insulation, and on this side, the wood rack.




As of today, here is the punch list:
  • Six more siding panels (the upper tall walls) with Z channel flashing
  • Exterior trim
  • Install wood rack
  • Opposite wall studs plus insulation
  • Finish insulation in ceiling
