Too-short basement shop with bare bones tool collection…
The table saw is a hand-me-down Craftsman with a replacement motor. I had to clean a good deal of rust off the top, and she looks much better now. Once I get the arbor washer from its former owner, I can start making a base for the table saw. I’m looking for inspiration for this project on LJ now.
My carving bench is in the far left corner in the first picture. The old dining room table is my current work area, so a good-sized workbench is definitely on my list of future projects.
The milk crate is full of random-sized pine boards that I salvaged from an old dresser that belonged to my father and then to me. I’d like to make a small shelving unit with a drawer on top using them, with a butcher block top of the same pine. I’ve drawn up plans, but the arbor washer is standing in my way…
The red tool cabinet was a gift from my paternal grandfather when I was a child. The Belcher Farm sign on the back wall is from my maternal grandfather’s farm, which was the inspiration for a carving in my Projects.
