I've seen many photos of work shops that people have posted and thought I would add photos of my shop to the collection.  I am lucky to have an area large enough to house all of my tools and allow me to work on a project without having to shift things around.  My shop is 15x18 with a 15x10 storage room attached.  Don't be fooled by how clean everything looks.  I spent several hours cleaning everything before my wife would let me take any pictures.  It will be back to normal in a day or two with saw dust and wood scraps scattered on the floor.

You have a perfectly organized shop-and one that has one of the smartest vacuum systems I have seen. What type of vacuum unit powers the workbench lines? Thanks for posting the great photos.

I wish I was as organized as my shop looks. The vacuum system is from Harbor Freight.  It works okay except for the chop saw and the band saw.  I plan to attach a 4" quick disconnect directly to a 4" hole in the face of the lower door on the band saw.

Great shop George. Good use of storage and I like the peg board, great when you need a tool that is used frequently. I agree with John, dust collection you have created is outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

Nice workshop George so much space, glad you posted these pics im in the process of making the car carrier that I can see in your second pic you are too. I could only get 12mm & 3mm MDF, wasn't sure if they looked right but looking at the 3 cars you've made its about right.

George, do you have the PVC piping grounded?  In some of my readings it mentioned that PVC carries statis electricity  Not sure how serious that could be.  I finally decided on point of  use vacumn system and have HD vacs (2) exhaust end vented to the outside and using a small exhaust attic fan running constantly to keep the air moving.  Your shop looks well organized and I am jealous of you space !
