My basement workshop that is about 16’ by 20’, I first started putting it together around October 2008. When I first started I only had the circular saw, miter saw, and hand drill; plus a very small assortment of hand tools. Today the foot print hasn’t changed just the amount that’s in it. To date the power tool list is:

Craftsman 10” table saw
Dewalt 735 Planer
Rikon 6” Jointer
Bosch 1617 Router
Ridgid 2 HP Router
Shop Built Router Table
Ridgid Laminate Trimmer
Wood River Mortiser
Craftsman 10” Miter Saw
Craftsman 10” Radial Arm Saw
Hitachi 5” Random Orbit Sander
Dewalt 7 1/4” Circular Saw
Skill Jig Saw
Dewalt 18v Drill and Reciprocating Saw.
Ridgid 18v Drill
Briggs and Straton 10 Gal Compressor

Nice looking shop! Us underground Lumberjocks have to stick together!!

I like the layout of the Radial Arm and Miter Saw. Great space saver having both on one long table.

I’m right up the road in Chambersburg.

Brian, this is a nice looking shop that you have put together in a relatively short period of time. You have organized it well and you have built some nice benches tool.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Nice shop, I would have to agree with Lew, its a great space saver to have your radial arm saw and miter saw on the same table, good idea. Keep up the good work!

P.S. I am also an underground woodworker haha

Thanks, I really need to update those pictures, they are way out of date. The biggest limit I have with the saw is accuracy, I know bench top saws are not suppose to be exact but the one I have is off by a good bit. You constantly have to check the fence for square (every cut), measure the distance from the fence to the blade instead of using the scale (mine is off by at least an 1/8”), etc. For fine woodworking I would recommend to save your money and get a contractor saw or look on Craigslist for a good deal. Once I get money saved back up, I’m going to look into upgrading it to something better.

Have your say...
