I have turned my detached garage into my workshop. The workshop is actually two levels. The walkout or the “lower shop” was a scary dark place before I gutted the whole thing out and remodeled everything. Now it is rewired, insulated, well lit, and very inviting. This is my main shop that houses all of my tools. My tools include: A jet table saw I picked up for $250 at an estate sale (w/sliding top). A joiner, planner, thickness drum sander, bench sander, scroll saw, drill press, band saw, radial arm, lath, and a wide variety cordless and hand tools.
Most of these tools were purchased from Craigslist, estate sales, or auctions. All very good tools and a good price. So, my advise to all beginning woodworkers is to take a look at all of your options before buying new. Most good workers like many on this site take very good care of their tools. you many find a great deal like I did on my table saw.
Recently I just completed a remodel of the upper shop. I took a very over crowded space and built a spray room and improved my overall storage. My wood is now neatly organized and the yard tools are out of the way. This opened up a ton of space for me when I’m working on large projects. The spray room has work out fantastically. I just purchased a HVLP Earlex 5500 Spray Station. $300 and well worth it. Finishing projects in a controlled environment has saved time and improved the quality of the finish.

Hello fellow woodworkers,
I wish I would have found this site along time ago. All of the projects I’ve looked at so far have been wonderful!! I’m looking forward to participating in forums and introducing myself to many of you.

How did you take that panorama?
Was that a function of your camera, or did you join the images using a program after.
