We have all our stuff in the new space and we’re starting to unpack the many bins, boxes and moving racks, but until the ductwork for the  dust collection system has been installed, we can’t get approval on the wiring. So for the nonce, not much woodworking is getting done in our new shop (though, because the project uses no 220-volt machines, I’m trying to get the I Can Do That project built for the April issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine…please forgive the cluttered backgrounds in the pictures when that comes out!).

Anyway, I thought you might like to see what the shop looks like in its current and deconstructed state – so below is an iPhone video, shot on my superannuated model  (hence the less-than-stellar quality – sorry!).

    Maybe I am a dunce, but what is the dependecy between ductwork and wiring? Seems to me you can wire a shop and an outlet (220) for a dust collector without having such a machine and the associated ductowrk, or, for that matter, any other planned piece of equipment and still get the electrical approved.

    Don’t see any benches for hand tool work. Lots of power, but where do you have the plane rack, dovetail saws, etc.?

    Some one else always did that. 🙂

    Looks like it’s going to be a great space. I have one question: why the absence of shapers?

    I get the feeling there is an official company policy to not use shapers. I like to think there are enough of us with shapers in our home shops to warrant the inclusion of these oft neglected heros of the woodshop.
