Scenes from my shop.

Finally took some snapshots of my shop. It is a 1700sqft wood frame, stucco building that is finished on the outside the same as our house (CC&R requirement). I plumbed and wired it, installed the air system (3/4" PVC pipe) and dust collection system (4" plastic drain pipe w/ copper static ground wire inside). The first photo is the outside. To the right are two doors into the three car bays. One has an 8' door the other is a 10' door. Straight ahead is the paint booth with the air inlet filters visible.

The second photo is looking at the three car bays. The Pontiac and willys are in the first two and my king cab pickup project is in the far bay. You can see the pickup bed standing up to the right of the picture.

The next pictures shows my pride and joy - a hydraulic hoist in the middle car bay. Welding station/steel work bench is in front of the Willys.

Here are two shots of my wood shop section showing the dust collector a I scratch built, air compressor & band saws (I built the 12" one from a single sheet of plywood and 12" cooler pulleys. Works great!). Door on the left is to the commode and door on the right goes into the paint booth.

The finals shot is of the spray paint booth, just on the other side of the wall with the air compressor. See door into the wood shop back right. See the 3000cfm cooler blowing out with filter pads on the outside that vents the painting fumes. Plenty of light and a drain in the center of the floor so I can wet sand and wash down the shop prior to painting.
