    My Shop
    After the last of our kids moved out, my lovely wife gave me permission to convert the basement TV room into a shop. "IF" I could control the noise & the dust. Her reasoning was that she would know where I was, doing something I liked & out of her hair.

    I removed the wall between the tiny little work space that used to be my shop & the TV room, followed by some re-framing of some wall. All heat/ventilation ducts were removed from that area so dust wouldn't be recirculated into the rest of the house. A sub panel was added & pieces of 1" black water pipe were installed between the ceiling joists to be conduits to the outside wall because I didn't have many of my machines at that time & I wasn't sure exactly where I would need power. The dust collector was going on the outside wall, as were most of the rest of the machines, but the table saw was going along the inside wall, so I ran a duct across the ceiling between the joists to preserve head space, with drops through the ceiling for connections at each wall. The ceiling was insulated for sound & then finished off. My shop ended up being 12' x 23'. Small, but I learned to adapt & it was always temperature controlled.

    I knew the dust collector would not be adequate by itself, so I built an air scrubber into the wall at one end of the shop. An old furnace blower was mounted into a plywood box to blow out of the shop. On the shop side of the box, 2 - 2' x 2' x 4" deep pleated air filters were installed with gaskets to seal the edges. When operating, filtered air is blown into the main part of the basement. The man-door next to the scrubber is weather stripped so air cannot come back in. There is a second door at the other end of the shop which is opened so basement air flows back through the shop carrying fine dust (the bad stuff) to the filter. The coarser (heavier)dust particles fall to the floor where they can be swept or vacuumed. It's easy to see that the filters are working because they are right out in the open, which is a reminder that once in a while the filters need to be vacuumed clean for further use.
