My workshop, like a few of us here on LJ doubles as a garage for my car. I am in the process right now of building a solid workbench to build future projects on.

The display hutch was part of a Dinnette Hutch that my wife bought on Craigslist, but after some time in the house didn’t like the top. It sat covered in the garage for almost 2 years waiting for us to try and resale the hutch until I realized that it would make a great tool display. I had a rickety bench made from some 2×4 and 1/2 plywood that was laying around so for now I set the display on top of that. I plan in the future to make a bottom to match the display.

The solid core door is in the process of being built into a bench now, and its going to be a big help.

I purchased most all my tools second hand on Craigslist, some I got a great deal, others not so much. Live and Learn.

Ridgid TS3650, Craftsman 6 1/8Jointer, Delta 17” Drill Press, Harbor Freight China Band saw and some hand tools, routers, hand planes etc.

Luke, you have put together a pretty nice looking shop. It looks like you have used your space efficiently and it is well organized.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

You have a nice place to do your woodworking, Luke. Welcome aboard!

Nice extension on the Ridgid Table saw. The hutch is a nice touch!
