All right. That does it. I'm kicking the wifes' car out of the garage, uh, tomorrow.

one suggestion (not meant crtically my friend lol) you mentioned using the carpet in front of the workbench to cushion feet and legs, i had that and replaced the carpet with the foam rubber cushions(4 that are put together 6 bucks at harbor freight) and love them.!! now i can sweep sawdust dirt and mud away from them so easy and they are softer than carpet. with the carpet you never sould get all the dirt and sawdust out. just my 2 cents lol.

your new shop area looks great, i am jealous of all the space!

ps, with the carpet gone concrete floor is easier cleaned and moving machinery around is easier.
I am sure that will be the way to go as soon as possible, like after a drill press, 14" band saw, a sharpening station for tools a dust abatement system.

Well maybe the pads will have to be moved up some. If my wife saw this post, well as you all know she is gracious with this stuff, but that would be to much I am sure. I shall just go slow with this stuff.

HI Jerry

The only draw back about having your shop in the basement is that it's power off /light out at 6:00 PM and not b/4 9:00 AM,, I can almost hear the BOSS now ,say, turn that crap off I can't hear the TV.. LOL LOL

aaahh bobj, i hadnt thought of that. i can hear my wife now if i fired up a saw or router about 6 am. id be in major trouble. but not all wives are exactly alike.
im sure Jerry's wife may be more understanding. good reason to use lots of insulation, as soundproofing making it warmer as a side result!

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.

Tell her to do what my wife does, ear plugs and I am not kidding. She puts them in when she goes to bed because I am ripping through 12" B-Cherry at 2:00 am and I do not care if all 6 kids wake up. Being born into it they sleep right through, she doesn't so ear plugs at bed time and thats me working in the garage(bedrooms above the garage).

That is the beauty of our house, When we built it in 03, we were able to insulate all interior walls plus the contractor insulated the basement ceiling. Once I put in a dropped ceiling ,loosing only a couple of inches, with sound dampening tiles it will be quiet up in the master. As a matter of face that may be why she agreed to go from the garage to the other side, our bedroom is directly above the down garage.

I must admit I was surprised when she agreed so quickly to move the shop to that part of the basement. We were going to make the basement like a mother-in-law suite. But both of our parents have passed so we don't need a suite. As a matter of fact when we were talking about is today, she mentioned that she really didn't,t need a second kitchen to keep up.

I realize that this really is a dream come true, it may, will, take years to get it where I would like it but I'm not going anywhere anyway so I can take my time and enjoy the journey. I will of course show progress as it is made, and I am very fortunate to have fellow woodworkers as close as Bob and Joe and anouther Bob down in Douglasville to share it with locally.

One thing I forgot to mention is that all wiring will be 12/2 with 20amp breakers all GFCI protected. This is more than is required, but doing this I can use any outlet to run any tool I have. I have a 200amp service that has 5 double breaker spots so with running doubles I can break the rooms into 10 separate circuits. I plan to do every other outlet on a different circuit so if I were to run two machines at once it would not trip a breaker from the load. As a matter of fact in the area I will be using there will be five 20amp circuities. This will cost a little extra but will be worth it in the long run. The ceiling fixtures will all run off two 15amp services.

I appreciate all of your comments and if your ever in the Atlanta area, I am sure that the four of us here in the area would welcome a visit.

Jerry,good idea to run every other outlet on different circuit. Thats how I set mine up. Lights are on two 15 A circuits. Just incase one set of lights go out, I'm not in the dark.
Aren't you going to run a 220V outlet any where? I put two in on opposite sides of the shop. I have a machine that can run on 110 or 220V, but you never know when you might need one.
