click the marker to see the address

I don’t have many good pictures yet mainly because we may not be staying at our current address for long. We would like to get to a little bit warmer climate. Currently most of my tools are in my garage but I’m holding back on building too many shelf’s and benches until we settle in a place for many years to come. I will try to take some pictures of the area I work after I clean it up a bit.

So far I have:

DeWalt table saw – DW745 – I wish I’d gotten the 744 so I can do Dado’s but live and learn.. my next table saw will be a more heavy duty but this will do for now.

DeWalt Planer – DW735 – Seems good so far, I’ve read some bad things about it for how much it costs but so far so good with my low end use… I always wait for it to get a bit warmer and clean the rollers with mineral spirits and it seems to work quite well.

DeWalt DW618PK Router and Plunge Router kit – This is a cool tool I just need to either make or purchase a router table for it.

DeWalt Jigsaw DW331 – this tool is cool and has been used quite a bit with good reliability.

DeWalt Orbital Sander D26451 – Use this often too, although now that I have the Planer the sander has been getting ignored more.

Dewalt 12” Compound Double Bevel Miter Saw DW716 – I also attached the laser guide on this; very useful and versatile tool.

Porter-Cable PC15TCSMK 7-1/4-Inch 15 Amp Heavy-Duty Circular Saw – Just got this haven’t even tried it yet – I need to get a long clamp on straight edge for it.

POWERTEC BD6900 Belt Disc Sander with Built-In Dust Collection, 6-Inch by 9-Inch

DEWALT DCD780C2 20-Volt Max Li-Ion Compact Drill

Several Irwin Clamps, I still have a long way to go to purchase enough clamps to glue up projects in a timely manor; also I want to build a clamp rack soon so that will need to be filled up.

Dremel 300 Series – Use this for fine tuning.

My wish list; this doesn’t include more clamps, finishing products, and workbenches:

1. Band Saw:
a. http://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-G0555-Ultimate-14-22-Bandsaw/dp/B0000DD0AC/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

2. Jointer:

3. Drill Press:
a. http://www.amazon.com/Shop-Fox-W1668-13-Inch-Bench-Top/dp/B0000DD1BE/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1328762617&sr=1-1-spell

4. Router Table:
a. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=19508&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_content=pla&utm_campaign=PLA&gclid=CKWGpeWNkK4CFUXf4Aod6VwYhA

5. Hand Drill
a. http://www.amazon.com/DeWalt-DCD780C2-20-Volt-Li-Ion-Compact/dp/B0052MIHMO/ref=sr_1_10?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1328763902&sr=1-10

and list goes on and on and on.. but after I’m able to get the thing above I’m sure I’ll be doing well enough to really make some nice projects.

You live in a beautiful part of the country.

Heck, just post some pics of big pine trees, or snow :-)

Dirt, Schmirt….
Post some pictures!!!

I was so looking forward to SEEING your shop!
I’ll show you my shop, if you’ll show me yours!!!
I also have a blog of my shop transformation, if you’re interested.

Can you believe the lack of snow we’ve had here this winter! I’m not complaining, I’m a salaried plow driver!!!

Now STOP reading this & snap some pictures to post!!!

Will do.. I tried to take some pics this evening but my phone doesn’t have a good flash on it and my garage isn’t wired for overhead lights, I only have a light over my workbench and extension cords.. I’ll open up the doors tomorrow and get some light in there. I’ll be posting what I have currently for tools and then my “wish list” that I hope to get over the next year or two.

Finally posted some pics of the “workshop” er.. Garage. The final pic of the little place is where my workshop will end up. I have my parents living in this little detached studio right now and they’re having a new house built. When they move out this will become my new shop. Should be cool.

Nice space to create in. Does that stack of pallets call your name every time you walk by? :)

Well I’m just getting back on my feet from a 1600 mile move from Northern VT to East Coast Florida. My shop is basically only called that because I put my tools in it…... ahem; much to be desired at this point. I am planning on building it up over the next 6 months to a year but will not be able to hold off on at least small projects until then. I’m working on another cutting board for my father in law but hope to get to a point where I’m able to start to build some furniture. Miss all you guys and sorry I lost touch for a while.

Look forward to browsing through all the new projects posted since I’ve been away.

Sure, give up the scenic vistas of Vermont, for the warmth of Florida. I have a problem with that! You didn’t take me!!!
Good luck setting up your new shop!
