New shop pics - start to finish

Well here's my new shop. I converted my grandparents old motor home garage into my temporary fine furniture shop. The idea was to start a fine furniture biz, but I've got a few things to take care of first so maybe a couple years from now.

Heres What I started with after I cleaned it up. A 264 sq' space with a 12' ceiling and preexisting double doors

After running the romex and finishing the electrical, threw in the insulation.

Personally I don't mind sawdust at all but there's just something about fiberglass, so I had my brother come help

Then the sheetrock of course.

This was kinda tricky, alot of cutting due to the uneven spacing on the studs.

So after the drywall, taping, and mudding, comes the best part, setting up shop

Some foam interlocking tiles from harbor freight make a fairly inexpensive and comfortable floor.

Got the incra ls positioner fence hooked up to my table saw and router table. Absolutely my favorite tool in my shop. Incramental positioning systems are so nice!

Here's about where I'm at today. Pretty much a fully functioning shop. Even though my last shop was about twice this size I still feel very blessed to be given a free space for a while.

This shop is dedicated to my grandpa who was a finish carpenter and passed away about 6 months before I started this project at his home. I think he would be proud And it raises his property value a smidge as well!

Then a couple tables I kicked out. The hall table is quilted maple with an insert of sappelle pommelle veneer with cherry legs and some inlayed banding. The end table has a bubinga top with cherry legs and a quilted maple fake drawer insert.
