Is this the smallest workshop on Lumberjocks??
You be the judge. The entire room is 9 feet by 8 feet. When I first walked into this place, the previous owners of the house had put their old kitchen cabinets and countertop as a workshop and it was awful. I ripped everything out and planned out the tools I would need to get serious about woodwroking. As you can see, it;s pretty crammed with the actual working space very limited which is why I don;t make very many big projects. There’s a miter saw, jointer, bandsaw, table saw (I recently bought a much better one than the cheapy in the pic), a drill press, belt sander. I built the cabinets from scratch for extra storage. There is also extra storage below the bench that holds the planer, scroll saw, drill, plunge router. Hand tools are in the drawers. There’s actually no room to store my portable router table in there, so I built a shelf in the laundry room for it (much to my wife’s dismay). There is a pegboard on the left of the first pic that holds my small but growing collection of clamps.
As you can see, many of the tools are Ryobi, which do yeoman’s duty but are not precision power tools. The first to go was the little table saw which was replace by a Ridgid ts that is amazingly good.
