My workshop now uses the better part of a 3 car garage. I store my veneers on storage racks wall mounted and also use some cabiinet top space. The bulk of my lumber storage is a separate 10×12 Tough Shed in which I added horizontal racks and end doors for easier access. Over the 25 plus years I have enjoyed woodworking I’ve accumulated a lot of tools and machinery, but just like clamps you can never have too many. I have gathered my wits and realized though some things I had I just needn’t need or use so I have sold some to make room in the shop.
Until I get things better organized I’ll refrain from showing photos so I won’t embarrass myself.
I’ll list some of my assortment of power and hand tools that I’ve gathered over the years:
Powermatic 66 with roller extension and 50” Vega fence.
Inca 10” 570 jointer/planer
Rigid 12” planer
Delta sanding center
Delta 4” x 36” sander
Jet mini lathe
Delta bench top mortising machine
Performax 22/44 drum sander
Hegner multimax scrollsaw
Hitachi 10” sliding compound mitre saw
Festool rail saw and table
Delta drill press
variety of routers
a variety of drills and sanders that one ends up with
3 router tables, 1 shopmade and 1 Jessem table I bought in a estate sale, 1 shop made horizontal table
several Leigh-Nielsen planes
several sets of chisels, although I prefer the Japanese chisels
variety of Japanese hand saws
A shop made sharpening center that uses water stones
A tormek sharpener
Veneering I use both a vacuum press and hammer veneering methods so I have lots of little shop made stuff.
I know pictures are worth a thousand words and several have asked to see, so with some clean up here ya go!
