Derik says he fell into woodworking doing remodeling work on a house he bought, and the next thing he knew, he was a woodworker!

Nice shop, and also what a huge dust collector. Why not a smaller one like the Festool dust extractor ?
This is Derik, the owner of the shop. I actually have 2 dust collectors and a shop vac. One of the dust collectors runs a floor sweep near the bench and my jointer and planer. It is attached to a cyclone to mainly catch the big stuff off of these machines. My other dust collector is connected to my tablesaw and bandsaw. I use the shop vac for smaller tools, like sanders and such.
