The new workshop
I like having a shop in a garage. You can open up your garage door which brings in a lot of light, and if you setup your table saw right next to the garage door, you can run through really long boards. I have a porter cable 10’’ saw, it works well and I use it a lot. http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/2944 To make your TS even more useful is to make several jigs, like my table saw sled, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/74822 which works really well. And my spline jig gets used a lot too. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/71953
I have a PC 4212 dovetail jig. It’s a great jig for dovetails, sliding dovetails, and even box joints!
The router table is another really handy tool to have. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73552 It has a 2 HP fixed based Drill maser router in the table. For $50, it was well worth the money.
The lumber storage works out really good, and it doesn’t take up any floor space.
My workbench is something I use all the time. I built it almost a year ago and it is a great workbench. I have my drill press, which I use all the time, and my scroll saw is very handy to have. I also have some tools hanging on my pegboard.
Thanks for reading!
