So now with the shop pretty much together I start with the organization/ stowing things away. So I used the Fast Cap rail hangers to hang my 3000 and 1900 rails on the wall horizontally. I made some things to hang all my other rails on the walls vertically, basically 3 1400 rails (2 are holy rails) 2 1080 rails, 1 800 rail and I make a couple small rails from damaged ones a roughly 400 and 300. so heres some photos of those.
I used the spur shelving to hold the modules for my CMS. I have 3 modules the jig saw, router and TS 75. Right now I only have the jig saw module hung in it, but soon Ill make some plywood inserts to use the CMS tables with my bench top tools., I also got my pocket hole station about done.

One of the spur hangers i used to store my hoses and misc plug it cables and my extension cord (If I can Find it)

Im going to be making a clamp rack soon using the LR 32 system/ holy rail to drill holes and the jig saw to cut the slots to hang the clamps.

Excuse the mess in the photos thats what im trying to sort right now

Am a little troubled that the foam insulation is not covered up. Thinking that over time
it will get chipped and otherwise worn away reducing its efficiency.
Maybe you got other things that will cover it up.
Anyway looking good.

Didn't make any cubbies,

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...

I moved a MFT to the back wall cuz I felt I needed a work table there

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 when It cools down.

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 mudding or taping

Heck with it I went with the T-111. Used 3/8" thick 4x8 sheets to make it easier for a geezer like me to set. .

It came out ok not great but OK once I dress it up itll look fine. You know add moulding, stain or paint it.

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.

Wasnt to bad doing this alone moving stuff around for access to the wall.

Son came home on leave (USMC) and gave me a hand putting up the T111 almost got all of it done. Son returned to base Friday.

Another (taller) freind came over yesterday to give me a hand at screwing the siding in at the top which i couldnt reach even with a 10' ladder. 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.

It does sort of look DIY to me. But to pay someone to dry wall It had a $3078.00 price tag. SI can live with a DIY
looking install. Plus once I hang everything on the walls and dress it up a bit I wont notice my mess ups. But getting close to being a shop.

Lessons learned which were a lot so far:

Big difference from building from the ground up (literally) I set up a number of shops both in the USA and in Europe (UK) They were basically garage shop and I set up and added some things.. This is a stand alone new build shop from getting a architect to draw plans to finishing it the inside yer self.

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.

I moved into my house about a year ago. Moved in early April.

So Ive been tied up with tis starting with finding a contractors and architect about a year ago.

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

By the way, are you going to leave the ceiling open?
May make for better ventilation and in your area it may help/
My ceiling is open but I do not have the ceiling insulation you do.

Just a thoughtl

Hey Ron,

It's starting to look like a real shop!

On suggestion, before you get too far along with shelving etc., you might want to consider installing a french cleat system. I have four levels of french cleats all around my shop and it makes installing and/or moving things on the walls much easier.

Cheers,
Tom

Duan, Yea Im leaving the ceiling open mainly for storage etc.

Tom Ive thought about using a french cleat system, just dont know if its right for me right now. Perhaps later once the shop gets up and running.

Hey Ron,

It's much easier to do it now before the walls are already covered with stuff. It's a simple thing to do with some 3/4" plywood and a table saw.

Cheers,
Tom

3/4" plywood is close to $100 a sheet here.
OSB is $43 a sheet.
That's insane!

Hey Zulu,

Ouch!
That is steep. Around here, a 4x8 sheet of AB marine ply is about $75. One sheet should yield about 92 lineal feet of paired cleat.
It's a very flexible and convenient system for hanging anything on the walls. In Europe, nearly every kitchen uses the system and when you purchase a flat, you bring your cabinets with you to hang on the common system. When you leave, you take them with you.

Cheers,
Tom

I was able to find the 3/8 thick T111 for $32 for a 4x8 sheet. when I was pricing I I called around and found 5/8 thick for $26 a sheet then called back 3 days later and went it up to $33 a sheet. I didnt buy the T111 until about 2 weeks after that. That place didnt have 3/8 thick.

I went with 3/8 because Im one man 5/8 would of been heavy for a geezer like me. The 3/8 made it alot more manageable to hang

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.

Breaking up the monotony by spending time going to the range get some shooting in just sort taking a break but not (if that makes sense)

I still havent done much.

But what I did do was make some cabinet doors. There are only 3 cabinets right now 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 secure the panel .

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, cut 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.

Been 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. Looks like got the shop insulated and paneled it right on time

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