Just moved in October 2012. Finishing up insulating and drywalling with new workshop in garage. Found some great new “toys” in late summer prior to moving. I’ll try to update details and photos this spring break. Yay for Unisaws!!!


Craftsman contractor TS
Jet 6” JJ6OS Jointer
Jet dust collector
Jet JWBS-12 Bandsaw
Jet JDP-17MF Drill Press
Delta ShopMaster compound miter
Porter Cable dual base router
DeWalt 12” thickness planer (thanks Dad)
Craftsman radial
couple other routers

Bostitch 23g pinner
Central Pneumatic 23g pinner
Bostitch 18g brad nailer
Bostitch 2in1 nailer
Porter Cable 18g nailer (garage sale $5)
Bostitch 16g finish nailer
Bostitch 15g angled finish nailer
Bostitch framing nailer
Bostitch Ridge Runner Roof nailer
(All found secondhand)

Here is homecentral – the workbench. Nothing fancy. Just 2×4 legs and skit with a particle board top.

Here is the front of the garage with the TS and planer on wheels.

My homemade outfeed table.

One this wall you will see my scraps burying a radial saw with the Jet jointer and dust collector. Also a cabinet project I’m working on from prefinished particleboard and solid maple faceframe. I’m practicing making the doors on pine right now.

And finally the family computer in the back of the garage.

And a few more tools.

Not much space in a garage shop. All tools are on wheels and the floor plan is always changing. During summer projects my tools spill out onto the driveway for space and dusting the neighborhood instead of my garage.

Sounds like a good Christmas Break project. I’ll see if I can get that done Jim.

Looks like you got it goin’ on. I see you do like guns. What is the itty bitty wooden mobile base used for?? Looks like your scraps are as out of control as mine are….........

The small base was for a 110v arc welder I used to have. I use it for small odd jobs now… like the cast iron lathe and motor. It beats dead lifting the thing and walking around the garage with it.
