My workshop is contained in about 1/3 of my basement. I share the basement with my home-office, and the kids rec room. I left this portion of the basement unfinished and over the past three years have been turning it into my dedicated shop. Here are a list of my tools:

Ryobi Disc/Belt Sander
Jet OSS
Jet 1014i Lathe + various tools
Delta 8” variable Speed grinder
Nahm’s deluxe router table with Bosch 1617EVSPK router
Home made ambient air filter
Rikon 14” Deluxe band saw
HF 2HP Dust Collector
Delta 18-900l Drill Press
Craftsman 21829 10” Tablesaw
Delta 13” planer

Porter cable compressor

Other tools:
Craftsman 10” compound miter saw
Craftsman router
Ryobi Plunge router

John, this is a nice looking shop that you have. It looks like you have your tools arranged well and your lumber rack looks similar to mine. I have a mobile cart located underneath the lumber storage that holds my sheet goods. This arrangement takes up about 2 feet of floor space so it works well for my shop. You also have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

You forgot to brag on your 21829!

Glad you made it to LJ’s, just don’t get so addicted here that the BT3 crowd gets neglected ok?

OMG good catch dbhost. It is such an integral part of my shop that over looked it. Don’t worry I won’t be neglecting BT3Central anytime soon, there is far too much knowledge, woodworking and other, to not keep that in my favorites. I liken it to going to the “back of the book” of life for answers.

I like the RAS. I’m blogging about getting mine back up to snuff, but I can’t wait to be done. I think it is going to be my favorite tool in the shop.
