No pictures yet! It’s a wood frame building about 12’x20’, with an add-on storage building that’s another 8’x16’. I went out and went through inventorying the power equipment that has accumulated, waiting for me to learn how to use it:
Hitachi C10FL table saw (can use it but no artistry)
Delta 6” bench grinder
Grizzly 12” portable planer model G1017 (one of mom’s friends gave it to me)
Delta 6” variable speed bench jointer
Hitachi CW40 5” scrollsaw (use it all the time making model warships)
10” drill press from HF (same as above)
6”x48” band & 12” disc sander, also from HF (same as above)
Craftsman shaper Model # 113.239201 (wierd model number, but that’s it. Came to me with many bits)
Delta 14” bandsaw (still learning the ins and outs, but managed to replace the tires with new ones, cuts okay)
Ryobi RE175 1 3/4HP variable speed plunge router (New in the box, for $10 at an estate sale)
Delta 10” power miter saw (used this a good bit)

Also found random add-ons:
Craftsman 8” depth dovetail fixture
Craftsman router templates (for letters)
Some kind of router shaper fence thing (that’s what it says on the box, it’s not too big) (but with a real shaper, probably not going to use it much…?)

Soon, I will be building a proper workbench to work on, but that’s the power tools in the shop. Small number of hand tools: Wood chisel set, 2 Japanese saws, 1 case saw(?), 1 big crosscut saw, several jig saws, files and rasps galore, rulers, a dozen other tools you’d find in any shop.

The big limit right now is power; the whole shop is powered from one 30A breaker in the house. Plans are afoot to get a real power drop to a circuit breaker panel in the shop from the main line. Once it’s connected, I’m good (was electrican on sub in the Navy) for whatever I need to run.
