Tricounty Mike, that sure is a nice shop. I think after i finish my router cabinet that a dust system will be next i really like the system you have, that white barrel is the ticket.
Thanks for all the pics and info.

MT Stringer Thanks Jerry. The AC/Heat pump work great. That is a plus for a small work shop. I have tried to improve the working space as the days go by. I built a new rolling cart for my planer that I can store several hoses underneath. That turned out great for me. Building the adjustable height worktable has also been a big help.

Even with all of my tools, I still have some working room and a path to walk through into the house or out to the vehicles. Hopefully, we will be through with the kitchen remodel in the next couple of weeks. Then it will be time for a good cleanup in the shop.

The miter saw station is a combination of plans from Ron Paulk (search You Tube videos) and a pair of cabinets I built for each side. The upper portion is bolted to the lower cabinets so I can dismantle if I ever need to.

Part of my problem with this garage is the storage shelving unit that takes up most of one wall. I think most of that stuff could be chunked out the back door and I would never miss it.

Thanks to all for your kind words. I will post some updated pics when I get a chance.

Jerry Bowen Mike two things stand out to me. The A/C is the first one, boy I wish I had it in my shop, and second is that due to the size of the shop, clean up won't take long.

The overall arrangement looks very good and your being able to work during those long cold winter days in Houston sounds good to. I'm not so sure that the term "long cold winter days in Houston" is really applicable, being from Alaska I wonder about you Texans, you don't know about real cold. Joking of course. I've been in Texas for eleven years now and am beginning to feel discomfort when it gets down to 20 degrees.

By the way, thanks for taking the time and doing the effort to get the photos for us to see.

MT Stringer Thanks Chris. Good luck with your make over.

Thanks Stick. Sometimes I get so organized that I don't know where to start!

Kinda like the fisherman's dilemma - fish or cut bait?

MT Stringer Yes sir. Griz 18-36. Everything is mobile so I can move the tools around. :-)

You have a drum sander?! You have room for a drum sander? *Dripping envy*
