Default Charlie's Shop

It's not big, but it's mine
Building is 16x24. At one end I have 6 ft walled off for my wife's gardening stuff and she has her own door(s). So my shop area is 16x18 and it serves as a workshop and art studio. Besides wood projects I also paint and I carve rocks.
I still have work to do in terms of organization and insulation. I need more shelves/cabinets and it gets too hot and too cold to work in here sometimes. Being laid off means money is tight. We do what we can with what we have though, right?

The patio just went in last week which is why there's dirt at the edges and the plants are really small. We just put some plants in a few days ago. There will be a pergola coming off the end where my wife's garden stuff is. Hope to start on getting materials for that this week.
For the DC I'm going to build a separator. Probably a Thien separator. I just need SOMETHING because emptying that bottom bag is such a pain in the butt. Not going to run a lot of permanent duct. I looked at doing that and thought..... why? I run one machine at a time. The shop is small. I think one of the expanding hoses and some adapters for the end will be fine. I can always change my mind later, but.... money is tight. Better to do SOMETHING than have it sitting there waiting for fancy.
The clamp rack is a metal, rolling rack I picked up for $49. It will hold a lot of weight and rolls real easy. I hang clamps around 3 sides and use the shelves for storage of other stuff.

Good looking shop, one cleaner than mine I'd say. I have the same Ridgid miter saw rack I really like it. Looking forward to seeing some great projects in the future.

Default Nice Shop!

Those of us sharing our "shop" with the household vehicles are jealous!

A little insulation and drywall and you will be doing well!

How about some projects?
