1/2 of my basement has become the closest thing I have have ever had to a workshop and I love it! Unfortunately we plan to turn that space into a playroom so it can’t last forever… Between my shed, basement, living room, and attic I manage to work wherever I can and I have to be creative. I have a mixture of used/rescued/repaired tools, and a few that I have researched and purchased carefully. I get a lot of joy for the tools I have bought, as well as getting the most out of the older tools I have. Here’s a list: Table Saw, Band Saw, Jig Saw, Circular Saw, Dremel Rotary tool w/a lot of accessories, Dremel Multimax Oscillating tool, Assorted Drills and Drivers, Router w/plunge and fixed base, a very crude router table, Belt Sander, Bench Grinder, Random Orbital Sander, and a bunch of hand tools and clamps.

It feels like a workshop since I brought my table saw into the basement from the shed 2 weeks ago. Since then I have completed about 4 projects and I am loving it! You can tell by these photos that all I have done is push some things out of the corner to make space for the table saw, a little work bench, a cabinet I hung on the wall (with a cool clete) and a rolling cart. I do my finishing in the attic where I have a big-ass attic fan for ventilation. By the time this actually resembles a working shop we’ll have to turn this room into a second living room/playroom for the kids, but by then maybe I’ll be ready to clean out some other room…

Perhaps these can serve as “before” photos…

It ain’t pretty, but it’s mine:

**Update: 2013-03-17 – After acting on an irresistable Craigslist add I picked up an oscillating belt/spindle sander, a scroll saw, and some really nice clamps!

These are phone pics but I’ll try to get better ones soon.
