Nothing Special today havent been in the shop the last few days so I thought today go spend some time.

I built a CMS insert for my bench top belt/disk sander combo. Its a little one but I use the heck out of it. I also set a cabinet near the out feed side of my CMS VL which I use primarily as a router table. this cabinent holds my router bits and stuff for the router table different collets spacers, wrench etc etc... also decided to drill some holes in the top t hold a screw driver , the took I use to turn the screws to tighten a module in place....
Like I said nothing special...

Oh I moved a MFT to the back wall cuz I felt I needed a work table there
 
Oh I think Im gonna dry wall the walls, dont know when as its starting to get hot now..its in the mid 90s and climbing... Maybe in the fall.

You do impressively tidy.
Smart to make inserts for the CMS and being able to store on the wall. I’m thinking of doing similar with my simple green Bosch belt sander, and the FT planer to use as a very small jointer.

I know you too have these long aluminium accessories from Festool.. I have a very compact (small!) room were I have my workshop now. And I got really tired of storing these various profiles in a corner, risking knocking them over.
So I did this, a totally flexible shelf rack, not too far from yours in steel. I only wanted to make shelf pins that are dedicated to these extrusions, from KA-KS, UG wings, legs for KA-KS and the sliding table for the router table. I’ve just done the first for the sliding table (I’ll even scribe a bit for the profiles later). This is a rack I’m going to build on, moving in to larger space later this year I hope.

Just to give you an idea..

Hey Ron, I know you’re probably bleeding cash already, but try getting a drywall quote and get someone in there to knock it out in a couple of days.

I thought you were going to put in a mini split for cooling.

Yea Im bleeding profusely and my wallets shaking in fear  [embarassed].

I got request out for a couple of quotes for drywall. I was going to hold off but thought , hey its the last piece might as well get it done .

 we'll see how the bids come in.

Worse comes to worse I have a friend whose pretty good at drywall willing to give me hand.

But Im old and well beat up going to the Drs in May get my shoulder looked at.

 Anyway, Im going to get it done....

Yah I got 220v ran for the min split.

 Dont know if Ill get it done this year.

 Hoping the summer wont be as brutal as last years

Got a bid today on dry walling my shop.... Ouccchhhh, got another coming next week and got a couple of referrals to some other contractors from the same guy who referred the insulator to me.

Well see how that goes. Worse comes to worse, Ill use some paneling or even T111. I can install that myself and no muding or taping

Hi Jobsworth, I'm installing elec. now, and was thinking of DW, would you mind sharing the estimate per linear ft/sq ft?  And I too was thinking T 111 if DW was too spendy

Drywall ceilings and paneling on the walls can look nice.

@Christophl

Im using 3/8 thk T-111 4x8 sheets. Im getting it for $31.30 a sheet. I expect to pay about $1000k If I do it myself.
by using T111, yes it cost more, but there is no mudding or taping involved. I got 10' walls , Im not sure if Im going to t=put the full sheet on the top or bottom. Im think of the bottom. No ones gonna be looking at the walls above 8' any way. I also found some rustic barnwood looking panels I might use on the back wall. should make it look nice....

I cut and pasted this from the quote. This is only one quote. Im expecting another one next week.



Work Shop: Hang 1/2 inch sheet rock                                3,085.00
and round  corner bead , tape seams                                       
apply two coats of joint-compound o                                       
1,387 sqft of surface.       

@Imemiter   
Im not covering the ceilings only the  walls.

But maybe that rustic paneling would look good in the office area

Might be the opposite. The lower part of the walls will probably be covered by cabinets tools workbench etc.

If you call around you might be able to find some T1-11 siding in 4’x10’ pieces. They do make it.

Oh they make it and my supplier could get it, but he told me it was pretty expensive.  So I went with 8' instead

Ok started on setting the T-111.

 Came out ok not great but OK once I dress it up itll look fine.

Made a stand to set the siding on to keep it the same level. Used a level to make sure it was. Still got a piece to cut thats less than 48" w Ill come back to it My son will help me with the heavy stuff next week. Hes home on leave.

Hi ya'll havent forgotten yas.

Been busy hanging the 3/8  T111.

It isnt the best looking install (havent set siding in many many many moons.

But compared with paying the contractor to install drywall, Im saving over $2K.

So I can live with a few ooopsies that I can correct. Fixing the ooopsies will make a nice summer project with the heat. Its already starting to get warm here.

Insulation does make a difference.

My sons on leave and been giving me a hand (using his muscles) which is nice as Ive been doing all this solo.
Did with a little help from my daughters...

Taking full advantage of having the son home  [big grin]

If I get around to it Ill take some photos or might wait till I piece everything in.


If not tomorrow

No photos yet guys. Im a few pieces short of finishing the t 111.  I got to go buy maybe 3 more sheets. I got enough to piece in some of the gaps in the lower section of the wall. I prolly will take photos today.

Special shout out to @Don T. who stopped by and gave me a hand yesterday as my sons leave is over and he had to return to base.

Thought I may add this to the discussion.

Seems to be a good place in the build and set up process.



Lessons learned which were a lot so far:

Remember i did the set up other than the insulation on my own.

Cost more to build the shop than I anticipated.

Needed a lot more work/ money to set this up that I anticipated and didnt think it through w all the things which I didnt think about ,  you know the didnt know what I didnt know.

Working alone takes a lot more time the I anticipated.

Building a shop form scratch maybe a lot of peoples dream, but it takes time a lot of time and work.

The time invested seems like it will be fun as you are well building your shop right?

But it turns into a job. To get it done its a everyday effort, like going to work which takes the thrill out of it after a while.

You will make mistakes putting it together , you will compromise things may not look as nice as you pictured in you mind.

 But with time and tweaking it will turn out to be a very nice shop.

But time is the key.

It drags on and gets to the point ya just want to get it done and over with and start building projects.

Once you keep that in mind that you can tweak and correct over time it does make you feel better.

I will feel like a big accomplishment once you finish. I know Ill feel that way once Im finally done.

Oh chances are it wont look like these guys shops on You Tube who have hugh following at first which sort of look like a showroom or display and get stuff /tool donated to them.

Im sure it will over time. Thats where the tweaking comes in and once yous tart enjoying the shop building things you can take yer time and make it like the shop of your dreams.

FYI I started this thread Jan 2020 when i was moving here. I moved into this house early April 2020 so Ive been dealing with this shop for about a year now starting with funding a contractor ad architect to make the drawings......

I totally get what you are saying. After doing a baby version of this many years ago, when I moved into our current house in 2008 I contracted much more of the work than in previous iterations. I hate that I didn’t build all of the cabinets in this shop and I hate that I did not do all of the wiring myself but ultimately I was glad that i did it the way that I did it so I could get the shop in order and ready to work right away.

Either way, once you have everything where you want it you will be so happy and proud that you have done it and have it how you want it. Ultimately you are going to be so happy that you have this comfortable space to go to anytime you want.

well as promised,
here the photos of the shop

with the siding up, well most of it.

Still got to patch in a few pieces here and there. Hide my oooppssies and Oh shucks

 But its pretty much complete..

Now put the stuff back where it should be and straighten and tidy it up when I finish it. Take a break from the grind and go back after a bit.

 im going to do a couple of projects finish one just to break up the grind

 Just a heads up to everyone following this thread

Theres nothing really going on.

 I did do some things like build a thing to hold my TS55 got the idea from another poster who showing his shop off here.

 Looking to get some peg board to hang some things from.

Also using up some of the plywood scraps I got lying around and dont want to throw away, so Im going to make some cabinet doors out of them.

Use some 1/4 scraps for the center panel.

 
 Dont know how they will come out as its the chinese imported ply but after sanding a painting (eventually) they may look ok.

Photos to follow I got some running around to do, seems like thats all Ive been doing the last fews days. [unsure]

Really great job there!!  And I couldn't agree more Jobsworth!  I did the elec work exc the 220V sub panel. I too am hanging T1-11 in my whopping 11x15 shed.  Have two sheets up so far and it looks fantastic.  I used 4" OC T1-11.  It's exactly like 'going to work' lol

I need to get one corner finished soon as my new Sawstop PCS/3hsp arrived early and is sitting under a tarp outside.  Hopefully I'll get this in this weekend.

@ Christophl
the beauty of the T111 is ya can paint it or leaving it natural. I left mines natural and ya can screw stuff to it. The 3/8 I use wont carry a lot of weight but I can screw some thing to it

To me the T111 was a bargain, Im not real good a hanging dry wall, I can but not very good at it and working alone the T111 was a one person job though 2 made it faster. PLus not counting having to buy dry wall tools that I wouldnt really use after I finished the shop

Sorry ya'll for not posting much lately. Ive sort of taken a break doing a few other things then building stuff for the shop.

 I still havent done much.

But what I did do was make some cabinet doors. There are only 3 cabinets right not that I need to build doors for.  So because of the width I made 2 doors per a cabinet.

I made them simple using up some of the scrap I have left over from the build. Plywood rales and styles and a 6mm/ 1/4 center panel.

 Didnt get to fancy just pocket hole together.

The for the center panel I routed a rabbit aound the back side of the door to set the panel in used sylicone to hold the panel in.

A simple trick I picked up from Gary Katz (one of his videos) was rather than chiseling/ squareing up the corners of the door to fit the panel, cit the cornors off the panel at a diagonal (no particular angle) thats a quick and dirty way to set the panel in the door.

Im gonna be setting up the office part soon enough. Its getting hot out here in Az. 97 this week with a spike up to 99 today.

Still not to bad for Az.
So much like last year Ill still be chugging along just a little slower. got the shop insulated and paneled right on time

Heres a photo of the back side of the door.  Nothing special or fancy just showing you how I fit te panel.



Oh one thing I forgot to mention is the STM with the MDF top I made for it. I tell ya truthfully Iwasnt sure how well or if it would be all that much of game changer putting that MDF top on it.

Well I can tell ya this after using it for a while now Ive been useing it as a aseemble table, parts table, cross cutting and ripping directly on it (as the entire piece cost me only $36 buck at the time) I have no worries about cutting into it like I did cutting into my MFTs.

So Im pretty happy about it right now. Plus I can just pop the top up leaning them against the wall fold the STM up store it under a MFT outta the way..

Well I got 2 more doors to make, the longest piece of 3/4 scrap is 29" long the cabinet is 30". So Ill just screw a 1 1/2" piece across the top front to be able to use the remaing scrap ply.

With the cost of lumber now really dont want to waste anymore then I have to

Been busy with a couple of projects however here are a couple of photos of updates to te shop

Bc I used T111 I can screw things right to the walls so I hung up things on the walls.

On the end of the cabinet run I made a spot to store my TS55. I saw someone make something simular for their shop and like the idea. Its right where I keep my SYM and make my cuts so its a good spot of it

Very nice!!   Good job.  I need to do some work to my shop for shelving/storage but just haven’t had the time.  I’m booking jobs 12 weeks out as it is so can’t find a couple days to work on the shop or my enclosed trailer.  That’s an entire different beast altogether.

Yah it does take a lot of time and it does turn into a grind setting up a shop.

Im still doing a few things to it as the majority of it is done.

That trailer build is going to be a great thread. Look fwd to following it.

If ya dont mind, I might be picking your bring on how about I go about getting a track for this barn door idea i got.

It will be a bit before I build it.

 lots to do in this house its new and only been in it about a year, so lots to do
