Wife gave me a go getting a brand new shop
Apr 29th, 2015 at 8:55am
 
Ok so my current workshop believe it or not is a portable tent garage that we used to park our pickup in that want fit anymore because of the work bench, lathe, drill press, wood,.... Ya you get the idea.  Cool
My new shop is going to be a 10x16 lofted storage barn with side doors and two windows.
Setup is pretty much a blank slate.
The only equipment I'm missing that I really need is a dust collection system and a band saw. I have access to a lot of hard woods, my archery club had a logger company in a few years ago and do a selective cut all pine, they stacked a pile of rejected trees almost all of it is hardwood of one kind or another, but I really don't have a good way to blank em out.
Going to have to wait on the band saw and see if I can fabricate a dust collection system.
I have an idea on a unit that I think will work
I am going to use three 50 gallon plastic barrels two of them with be the dust bins with vacuum running through both in series one will catch larger stuff then the other to catch dust.
The third barrel will have a quarter section cut out of it and will be mounted under and along the back side of the lathe,
My intention is to catch the majority of the shavings before they hit the ground, anyone tried something like this?

The curlies are easier to get rid of with a shovel than a DC system.  It would need to have an extremely high powered suction system to pull the curlies.  DC systems are intended to collect dust, not large debris.

The harbor frieght DC is popular. Any DC should have a cyclone to extract most of the dust and larger particles. JMHO.

Willie, congrates on getting a new turning or (man) cave. I want to ask you a question if you don't mind. Do you live in a city with very close neighbors or more distance between neighbors? The reason I am asking is if you live in the country or with neighbors who are not that close you could vent your sanding dust directly outside like I do. I have to agree with Jim the curlies are more easily dealt with using a shovel and a wheel barrow. I spent time and money in the beginning due to lack of knowledge and experience thinking I needed to do the same thing with the curlies and dust. Each one of us is in a different situation with different variables so just because one uses a method doesn't mean it will be best for you. Good luck fixing up your new turning barn Thumbs Up    Ps I use a HF 2 hp dust collector to pull and blow the sanding dust outside. A large window fan is the best thing you could ever put in your shop to help clean the air if it's not too cold.

Sorry for the disappearance, I've kind of backed up on buying a prefabbed and gone with building my own.
The shop is framed floors in , door framed and in though hardware isn't
My walls have osb up but for two walls  and I have 4 more sheets of osb to go for decking on the roof.

The shop is 12 feet wide 16 feet long lean-too style 8 ft walls with a two foot riser on one wall to give me a good pitch on my roof.
It took two people  (cost me a case of bud) with a framing gun about a day to frame and a second to start dropping sheets of osb
Right now with some free wood and some culls from lowes I am looking at $800 in materials not including roofing and windows (another freebie that someone threw away and I picked up)
I will get a list of materials together for anyone that is interested.
I actually like this lean too style it will allow me to run windows across the top of my wall giving me a lot of extra light

lean too 16 foot long 12 feet wide
3 4x416 runners
18 2x6x12
2 2x6x16
6 4x8x3/4 osb or 12 7/16 to double layer if you want a really stiff floor

Walls
4 2x4x16
4 2x4x12
40 3x4x8 you will have some left over for framing windows doors and so on
16 7/16 osb I made my own 4 foot door with a sheet of osb Your choice

Roof
I had some free 2x6x8 that I spliced to make 12 foot you can also use 2x4 a lean too uses much less roof material Caution!!!!! This is a 24" center if you live in a high snow area then you will need to drop to a 18" center and use thicker decking
9 2x6x12
9 2x4x14

6 sheets osb depending on your location
My lean too is fairly easy to build. Because of the standard size there are very little osb cuts and little waste.
Here are some other money saving tips
Lowes and Home Depot  sell culls all the time  what's really nice is the managers are not locked into the price listed on the sticker and many times you can get them to cut the price by half or more again.

My riser  across the high side of my building was built on the 24 inch same as my walls and is 24 high outside dim... Instead of buying windows I will buy glass and frame the glass in myself  with molding the glass is only a few bucks a sheet when it's that small.
Building your own door will save you a lot of money and let you make an oversize door for your shop.
Remember KISS!!!! Keep It Simple Stupid... Saves time money and headaches

Got my roof on this weekend and added another layer  of 7/16 osb on the floor for strength
I priced going with 3/4 it was 14 per sheet 7/16 is 7 per sheet so  now your most likely asking why not go with 3/4
I  ran my first layer on direction and my second crossways of the first this gives me a much stronger floor.
One word of advice about OSB there is a smooth side and a rough side. You will be tempted to lay the smooth side up....... Trust me your butt will thank you if you don't!!!
Man that stuff gets slick when saw dust gets on it .
I can't tell you the number of times I almost busted my butt.

Ok so now I've got to start building my shelving and stuff and move in
