No windows?That would drive my guys nuts...more than they are already.How cold does it get inside in the winter months?
looks like a nice set up. I'm interested in the spray booth setup. are those filters on bottom and what type of exhaust fan are you using. I'm looking to do something with my spray area. I'm in Sherman, CT.
The blue areas are filters. The ones I get are 3' x 9' and I use two of them. I am still testing this setup. I feel I can do better. The fan I have is pretty powerful. It is a 36" tubeaxial fan with a 3HP 3Ph motor. It draws 17,570 CFM (Grainger 7F864). I am thinking of adding more filters, maybe making the whole wall a filter area. If you wanted to come by and take a look, you can. The room is set up to be a semi downdraft booth. The intake filters are on the ceiling at the opposite side of the room. The air flows in a diagonal pattern downward. It works pretty well but has some turbulent spots. If you need more answers just ask.

You bought yourself some real great equipment for the work that you do. They are fantastic by the way. Dust collection appears to be a challenge in your shop. I suggest a bigger dust collector (3hp)where several machines can group together inside your shop. The air filtration system works best right above your tablesaw or shaper/router tables.
love thecherry ent center. i'm a one man shop in ca.one Q. how much did you charge? i'm tryin' to get a fix on pricing my own work. would appreciateany help.

I am about to switch from Contracting/woodworking to just woodworking, getting too old to climb. I love working just in the shop, and I tried it a few years ago but had too many payments. My new shop/home complex is paid for, and most of my tools are paid off, so its about time to try it again. Looking forward to it, tired of competing with hacks and dealing with subcontractors.
I like the classics, and I'm sure that you get a bit more of that out east, but I learned long ago to just say "Yes I can" to projects that may not be what I want to do exactly. Can't always have a challange.
Nice work. Must have had a few hours in that entryway. Looks awesome.
