    Got a little more done on the shop. I ripped up a couple of sheets of 1/2" MDF with a 35° bevel on top to be used as baseboard. Just under 6" tall. A lot cheaper to rip your own than to buy it as molding.

    This is about 1/3 of the baseboard and one of the two door jambs. Jan does all the painting!

    I did the same in my house and Duuuhhh figured out it doesn't work so good in the bathroom. All it takes is a little chip in the paint and you get a weird swelling kind of look.
    I'm a certifiable tree hugger. (it's a poor mans way of determining DBH before cutting the tree down)

    Hey Rennie, Have you looked into cork flooring? It might be worth the few extra bucks. I've seen it for less than $2 sq. ft.

    Yep, MDF and H2O don't get along very well. Fortunately (maybe unfortunately) there's no plumbing in the shop.

    Cork would have been a good choice but even at $2 a sf that's three times what it cost me for the laminate. So far the laminate has worked well.

    A vinyl transition makes sense but don't know if I could find one that would work with the 7mm thick flooring. I'll do a little looking on line. I thought about moisture. I'll stay back about 10" from the door and I was going to paint the floor first with a waterproofing paint and then with a colored paint make for concrete in a color that would be close to the floor color. I figured between staying back 10" and the paint I might be OK.
    Looking great Rennie, I know this not exactly what you are looking for but this is what I used to keep water outof the Garage shop here in Arizona. And yes we do get a fair bit of rain at times. No that often but when it comes it all comes at once.

    I hug her every day and tell her how blessed I am to have such a great shop wife.

    Thanks for your kind words about how it looks. The interior is coming along nicely. Here's a picture of the outside. Gotta love the river view!!

    Thanks Don - I added this to my wishlist on Amazon. Should do the job!

    Got a start on the back bench/miter saw station today. I need shallow drawer storage for small tools and hardware items so I decided to use the space under the infeed/outfeed tables. The drawers will be 4" deep, perfect for squares, tape measures, all my various sizes of nails for the nail and staple guns, and all those screw and nail boxes that come from the hardware store. Drawers to the left of the saw will be 22" deep, to the right of the saw 18" deep.

    The first step was to build the base using CDX. as stated in an earlier thread ugly is OK here. I brought the DC to the back of the saw and then sectioned off the run for the pipe. there will be a blast gate just outside the hood. I will probably slice a section of pipe in half forming a trough behind the saw and use the hood to direct the dust to it.

    Next step is to install the dividers that go between the drawers making sure they are square to the front of the base, perfectly parallel to each other, and level across their tops. Oh, and exactly the same distance from each other. I'm using 3/4" birch ply for the dividers and drawer boxes.

    Here's a quick drawing of what I'm trying to build.
