I have the smallest workshop I bet ! But I can do just about anything in there, and it’s so close I just go downstairs. I have a lot of tools, not so much as the big expensive ones but I get the job done. I have a wicked 14in bandsaw, she’s a little old but she works damn good. I upgraded the coolblocks for the ones with the little sealed rollers in them, with them & a 3/16 in silicone blade I can turn on sharper than a dime. I have a big brute 12 in dual bevel mitre saw, now I wish I had bought the 10in. But I bought it when I had a big garage, I just bought a brand new 12in planer haven’t even got it set up yet. I have a 8 gallon air compressor, Skil bench drill press, an old floor stationery 1in belt sander awesome for shaping, M/C bench 4×36 belt sander w/10 disc sander, M/C 10in Tablesaw w/side & front extensions, a real old 6 in jointer/planer w/home made stand I got gave to me. I had to remount the motor, I got it up & running. Then all the usal hand power tools & air nailers, I sold a bunch of tools that I wasn’t using anymore like all my plumbing tools. Trying to sell my drywall tools, ya I sell them so I can buy more woodworking tools. Well here is some pics of my main room, then the other room is just storage & where I use my tablesaw. But I have to get it organized so I can set up my Planer, I bet none of your wifes/husbands would let you use a tablesaw in the family room. LOL

Randy, a small shop is better than no shop at all and can tell that you are proud of what you have and enthusiastic about what you do so ain’t life grand? Welcome to Lumberjocks.

You’ve got a space to work in, thats what counts and hey, If the tablesaw is already in the family room you could gradually sneek a few more tools in there while she’s not looking. Next thing you know, you have a bigger shop. (:

Actually I did that just the other day, I bought a planer & set it up in there. So now the whole room is mine, I am just going to throw down my heavy paint drop sheets & cover the couch set. Then I am good to go, we didn’t use the downstairs anyways so what the hell eh.
