I moved into this building about 10 years ago and started with a ricketty old work bench that was left by the previous owner. I put another piece of plywood on top, anchored it to the wall, and it has been the center piece of my shop ever since.
The bench is about 6’ long and 2-1/2’ wide – far too small – but it does the trick. I stage my miter saw on this table and hang the long boards off the edge of my bench and through the door to the hallway. For the most part I can make most of my cuts with the peice to the left of the blade.
I built a crane to pull my miter saw up into the rafters and get it out of the way. I have some pictures from when I built it, posted as a project.
I also have my portable table saw hooked up to a shop vac. I can’t cut anything longer than about 2’ unless I take the saw into the garage. I take the table saw into the garage all the time – it’s my favorite tool; unfortunately, I just don’t have the room to use it inside the shop.
Next is my homemade router table ( stored behind my table saw and usually used on the floor in front of the washing machine).
These three pieces, a good fence, a skil saw, a whole lot of hand sanding, and a lot of patience are my major tools.
My shop is humble, but I am able to produce great things from within.
Thanks for reading. J-
