Well, this is my little shop. It’s the size of single car garage located down in my basement. I started with a couple of sawhorses that I made which usually is a worktable. I made a workbench and then another table for the miter saw (a used gift). I added peg boards for the tools. I eventually acuired a table saw and a router/ router table. The most recent addition was a drill press, which I made a stand for; also a lathe and bandsaw. The shop also houses a weight bench I made for the boys. Everything in there was made from scrap lumber I acquired from my Dad and other resources.
My dust collection consist of a broom and a shop-vac that i usually use as a blower to clean out the shop occasionally. Once in awhile I put my wife and kids to work sanding or painting, they love it too. My projects have graduated a bit. Last summer I made a cedar chest for my wife and finally made me a great workbench this fall. Lately I have been playing with the web cam in there on ustream. I have been turning bowls for a short time now. My shop is my little get away and I look forward to working, I mean having fun there.
