My shop has taken over our 12X25 garage in San Francisco.
Other than a Bosch router, every tool I have has been a second-hand acquisition off of craigslist:
-Jet 14” Bandsaw with upgraded guides + extension block
-Ridgid 13” planer
-AMT (now defunct) 6” jointer
-Performax 22-44 Pro drum sander (the Old one, CHEAP! $400 on craigslist!)
And the only major acquisition to be purchased new, a SawStop Pro model 3HP table saw.
OK, some shop pics are now up, by request
The shop has never been this much of a mess. Some of that might have to do with the new saw installation, some might be due to the 4-year old and 18 month old girls who dictate my schedule. Either way, these will serve nicely as “Before” shots for when I remodel the shop later this year (24 inch, closed cabinets and new wiring).
This is what you get in a city where the standard home is 1100 square feet. My old saw and the shipping box for the new one are still in there, and I have decided that I need a bit of a remodel now that I have outgrown my original floorplan.
If you look closely at that last picture, you can see my “Work Truck”, a Toyota Prius (You would be suprised at what you can fit into this thing, although you don’t get 45 mpg with 400 lbs of oak laying across the passenger seat). Unfortunately, my close friend with a pickup recently got rid of it, so now I just pick out lumber and have it delivered.
