This is actually the 2nd phase of my workshop. The 1st phase was limited to about 1/3 – 1/2 of its current size (now about 10X20). After we got rid of the tent trailer because the kids got too old to go camping with us, I was able to acquire a couple more tools and enlarge my domain.
My major tools now are:
Delta contractor saw
Delta Shopmaster Bandsaw
Delta Shopmaster Benchtop Drill Press
Low-end Delta DC
DeWalt Miter Saw
Porter-Cable pancake compressor and various nail guns
Grizzly G1276 Belt/Disk Sander (not pictured)
Delta Shopmaster variable-speed grinder
Delta 13” portable planer
Various power hand-held tools
The workbench is an old utility bench that I made about 20 years ago long before I thought about getting into woodworking. I cut the legs down and put a face vice on it. It’s reasonably sturdy but far from flat.
Once I finish the major project occupying the center of the shop ( double sink vanity cabinet), I plan to begin on phase 3. I am compiling workstation and storage ideas that I hope will make the equipment configuration more compact and flexible. I’ll be sure to post the progress photos as phase 3 evolves.
