Nice to see someone put decent dust collection in a home shop. There is one thing you might end up needing to change: as a rule don't take collection off the bottom of a trunk line. Chips from other lines will fall down and plug the bottom lines. Side or top inlets are better.

I bought a house last November with a 30í x 60í steel Quonset hut. Iíve been setting up a shop in the back half. Here it is back in the spring. More recent photos to come...

Looks like a great place to set up. One question though. What is this?

I knew someone would ask.

It was the beginning of a home rock climbing wall, since thatís one of my other hobbies. I ended up dismantling it and using the lumber for other stuff after I realized I was never really going to use it.

The biggest problem I need to solve is power & light. Right now the power is going to the shop through one 100í extension cord from the crawl space in my house. Every time I turn on the lathe, drill press or branch grinder, the lights flicker. I have a bunch of conduit and direct-bury romex. I just need to rent a trencher to dig a trench, but to do that I need a truck to get the trencher here. So Iíve been dragging my feet on that a little bit. Soon.

Then Iíll be able to wire up better light. It looks pretty bad in the photos, but I have four LED spotlights, and if I turn them all on the space Iím working in itís pretty adequate. Not ideal, but Iíll improve it.

The next step is to put in some kind of heat. Iím planning a wood burning stove made from a 55 gallon drum on its side. Iíll probably take out the finishing station in the back there, and put the stove in its place. Then Iíll move the finishing station out front into the garage area and maybe build a semi-enclosed space for it.

this is awesome, I have a few brothers that have a set up where everything folds out and their trailer unpacks for a mobile work site. I love the way this is set up where you can do you wood working inside.

So, big or small... let's see what you got.
my shop at home is just a two car garage. But at work we make cartridge filters similar to a lot of the dust collection filters that are used in some of these shops depending on the system. I have been lucky enough to be one of few to head up an entire factory move from 32,000 sqft to 78,000 sqft. It has been an unbelievable experience and would love to show some pictures. Most of the wood working I have done as far as just wood projects have been things out of pallets, wine racks, tables, end tables, ect...

Wow! I'm truly jealous of a lot of the shops posted here. Some of you guys have some AMAZING work spaces!

Here's my humble contribution. I build custom electric guitars in my single-car garage. It's taken me several years to get things to this point, but I really am happy with it. My wife is a professional organizer and has helped immensely.

Here's my east wall consisting of all my storage and work bench.










And my west wall with all my machines and wood storage.



As you can see, there's a lot of shop built stuff in there. I think I enjoy building fixtures, jigs, etc as much as I enjoy building guitars.

Really nice, Roger! I don't look at this thread often enough but am glad I looked today 'cause I like to see anyone building guitars. Got any finished guitars we can see? I've built all of one acoustic guitar so I'm really prolific and cranking them out - NOT! LOL!

Thanks, David. Sure here are a few:









The guitars in that last pic were made from the original dance floor from Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa. It's the same floor that saw the likes of Hank Sr, Bob Wills, The Sex Pistols and tons of other historic acts.

You can check out the gallery on my website (www.dogtiredguitars.com) and see most of the guitars I've built and the stories behind them.

I have dealer accounts at Allparts and WD Music, so I get most of my stuff through them. For someone building just a few guitars or their first, I usually recommend Guitar Fetish. They've got good quality stuff (their pickups are amazing for the price) that won't break the bank.
