Pictures of my shop
« on: April 19, 2014, 05:21 PM »
Here are 2 views of my  30' x 50' shop. I am a carpenter and started building it in 2005 and hope to finish it someday. I have been building things in it since about 2009. It is the third shop I have built for my own use.

Really nice - I want one of those when I grow up...

Is the dust collection for the big machines coming through the floor?

I really envy the amount of space you have. As a hobbyist I can't justify that much space (relative to the patch of land I live on) [sad]

In my last shop I had a nice dust collection system under the floor and I have none in this one other than the CT 26. I am going to get a roll around in the floor model to catch the dust from the planer and TS.

I love the tray-vault ceilings! I did the same thing in my kitchen and love the look and feel.

Just noticed that I only see one fire extinguisher? Sorry - someone in our family is a state Fire Marshall so I can't help but notice...

Another thing - how do you get the canoe down with all the "stuff" under it (or is it a helmet for the "stuff")?

I love the tray-vault ceilings! I did the same thing in my kitchen and love the look and feel.

It was neat how I did the ceiling. We placed a steel plate in the shape of an upside down "V" and bolted it the 2 pairs of the king common rafters to keep the bottom from spredding. The ceiling is there to hold the lights and reduce the amount of heated area. Otherwise the structure would stand up without ceiling joists.

The canoe is easy to get down. The stuff stored under it is material for the current project mostly.
 I don't use it much either, I prefer the center console boat!

Do you have any pictures of that process? I can't quite imagine what you're trying to explain.

It's only 3 times bigger than my first house  [tongue]

and just a little bigger than the 6' x 12' shop I have planned!
(Does that qualify as a micro-shop?!)
Small pieces of land close to the city!

Very impressive Walt!

I probably did not explain too good. It is a flitch plate bolted to a pair of rafters to prevent the bottom of the rafters from spredding outward and pushing the exterior walls out which is the force caused by rafters. this force is usually counteracted by ceiling joists or collar ties. I took some pictures and is a neat idea that I would like to share but I can't post pictures. I had my visiting son-in-law do those of my shop.
