  1. That’s a great idea. Was just trying to keep all the power tools along the same wall to keep in line with the DC, but definitely makes more sense to have the lumber storage near the door where I’m bringing it in.
  2. Not sure I’m quite settled on anything yet at the moment, other than that I’m building a 30 x 40 shop. For instance, now I’m considering moving the DC room to the opposite end of the back of the shop so that I can have the wall with the windows to give natural light for my assembly and hand tool work rather than the power tools. I’m trying to keep the power tools on a straight run from the DC. When I’ve envisioned running power through the ceiling, I’ve seen outlets on the ceiling with extension cords or reels dropped down to the tools. Looking at your setup, I like that look far better and may definitely consider someone like that.
  3. Thanks for the thoughts Mark. Hadn’t thought about the floor outlets being on a separate circuit. Not a bad idea and one to explore. Ive thought about a false ceiling too. Not sure what that cost would be but if it’s not too unreasonable, it may be the best way to go, especially as that would allow me to run ducting in the ceiling and be able to change things in the future if desired. Not too worried about cold down here, but want to keep insulated from the outside heat for sure.
  4. So we’re getting a bit closer to the start of this build. To catch you up, I’m building a 1200sq ft, wood framed shop dedicated solely to woodworking. Ceiling height will be 14’ for the possibility of parking RVs or boats in the building should I ever wish to sell the property (much more common toys down here than table saws and jointers). I’m taking @gee-dub’s idea and putting a 3/4 height wall about 8’ from the back wall to allow for a space for finishing. I’ll be running some electrical through the slab to keep from having to hang electrical cords down from 14’, so I’ve been playing with the layout a bit. Obviously things tend to change over time as you work in a shop, but want to at least get to where I have an idea of where outlets should be placed in the floor. Based on some suggestions given in another current thread, here is what I have. Some of the tools are existing, some are purchases as soon as the shop is built, and others are sized for what I hope will be upgrades in the future. As always, I welcome thoughts, suggestions, and critiques.
  5. Thanks for the info on these. Picked up the last two packs of them at my local HD today.
  6. Don't think I've ever noticed the annual Bessey clamp sale at HD. I'll have to keep an eye out for next year.
  7. I'm assuming it has something to do with chopsticks...Seems everyone is getting into those these days? I tend to prefer my fork and knife.
  8. Love the additional detail of the cross grain ends. And thanks for the info regarding creep. I'm one of those who wasn't aware of it, but I tend to just use Titebond 3 for all my work and don't tend to have too many issues yet.
  9. Love this idea. Definitely keeping it for potential use in my new shop.
  10. I can respect that. It’s an absolutely incredible looking chair.
  11. You should definitely charge what your time and talent is worth. No complaints from me.
  12. Just out of curiosity, what do you sell those chairs for?
  13. Absolutely gorgeous chair. I hope that my skills allow me to build something of that quality someday. Seems long a far off dream to me right now.
  14. Since @Chet doesn’t trust me, here’s a picture. I try to refrain from posting pornographic images as much as possible, but sometimes my hands get tied.
