Mark's New Shop
Jan 18th, 2015 at 11:15am
 
My wife and I moved to our new Empty Nester home in October and I had the opportunity to build a new shop in the basement. I added more lights and reciprocals this time around.  The space is 11 x 17. Trying to cut down on the noise transmission I added 3 1/2 inch blue denim insulation to the ceiling and inside walls and then put up 1/2 inch OSB on the ceiling and 3/4 inch OSB on the walls.  If I were to do it again, I think I would spend a few more $ and use plywood instead. I would like to acquire a drill press at some time in the future, But as you know there is always a wish list.

Looks like a great shop.  Is it possible to move the dust collector out of your shop and into another part of the basement?  i would also get a better filter for the dust collector.  Shop is well thought out and should serve you well.

Looks great, a nice fresh start. You might consider a Shopsmith for an all purpose tool. I have had mine since 1980, still going strong. I have the bandsaw attachment and belt sander. It's a good drill press, the speed is a little high as is, you can get a reducer.

Looks really good! (floor's too clean though)

Everyday liberating nice things from ordinary chunks of wood---and I like gnarly wood, the outcome is nearly always better than the start.

Looks really nice Mark.  Been wondering how your doing since left us on the east side.  Maybe the Bluewater Turners need a field trip.

Nice looking shop--way to clean and I don't see a lot of turning blocks yet.  Better get busy, or are you keeping it as a "display" shop Grin
