I’ve only been serious about designing and building with wood for about 3 years (now that the kids are out of the house). My workshop is my garage, and shares space with other hobbies – guns & reloading, motorcycles – as well as typical garage storage stuff. As such room is tight even though it’s a 24’ x 28’ room. Luckily I have a window that I put a 10 kbtu AC window unit in for the summer. It’s well insulated so the window unit keeps it cool in summer and just a 1500w heater keeps it warm in winter.

I use power tools for the grunt work, and hand planes, scrapers, and spokeshaves for flattening panels/table tops, replacing sandpaper, and various other stuff I come across. While I’ve developed a passion for handplanes, I use power tools where I can.

All the power tools are mounted on shop made carts with HF mobile bases for moving around. The only stationary items are 2 workbenches. I started off with handplanes as a last resort to get table tops flat and fell way down the slippery slope – I now have over 40 of ‘em.

What’s a workshop without tools to use, so he is a list of most of them:

What a list of tools, it will be challenge getting it all in the shop. Looks like you are well covered for tools.

Great bunch of tools you’ve listed. Space is always an issue no matter how big your shop is.
Bigger shop just equals more valuable “stuff” to store’
Thanks for showing us your shop.
