Y'all are getting me excited! I just bought my aunt and uncle's house. My uncle has a big barn/shop and I'm ready to get in there and start doing some woodworking. Unfortunately the shop is still full of his junk! So it'll be a while before it's clean and ready for me to take it over

My shop is presently used primarily for welding and machining but will soon move more to wood working. Will be setting up a 20" planer, an 8"jointer and 3hp shaper across from the table saws soon in prep for some cabinet work.

My little shop. It's amazing how fast you can out grow your space. My advice is when you draw up the space that you think will you need, double it!

I like that, great idea for storing a bunch of wood in a small place. I have scrap pieces piled up on random shelves right now.

Finally had a little time to start on my work bench. I may have framed it a little heavy, but it shouldn’t go anywhere.

Gutting and revamping mine now... it's always been mostly storage, but now that I have spent almost a solid year on the house (for the wife), it's my time.

First things first, I decided it was time to utilize some of the previously wasted attic space, so I installed a ladder... I don't recommend EVER attempting this by yourself :/

2nd project was the first of several work benches. I never had much luck with lighter weight, wimpy table or counter tops, so I decided THIS was was going to be a haus! The legs are all doubled 2x4 the underside of the lower shelf are 4x4. The top is 3 layers of 3/4" plywood with a 1/8" hardwood laminate top.

Heavy is good... this thing stays right where I planted it.

After some de-clutter, it was time to finally (after 20+ year) fill cracks and paint the floor. I did this mainly because the rough concrete could really only be swept with one of the typical "shop/patio brooms", which mainly served to fill the shop with dust. Ideally I wanted to be able to use a dust mop which does a better job getting everything and minimizes airborne dust.

Next, I added a home brew air cleaner. I did another post on it here:

Now I am on to building a usable miter-saw station, which will be connected to a vac/cyclone air cleaner. I have 8' to the left and 3.5' to the right

I'm also cheap, so I tend to recycle or re utilize any piece of scrap... and it beats a trip to the dump to get rid of. I have a decent stack of laminated wood flooring that I tore out for one of the wife's wish lists, so much of it it going on the walls for tool storage, magnet bars, shelves and drawer bottoms.

After the miter station, comes a glue up table. Several years ago, I scored a 5'x 40" sheet of fire-slate. I think the only reason it has hung around is that it is too heavy to get rid of, so I sacrificed a couple saw blades ripping it lengthwise down the middle to use for a couple counter tops. This stuff it HEAVY, solid and impervious to chemicals. It's the stuff they used as science lab counter tops you'd find in a high school lab...did I mention it's HEAVY?

' more to follow
