Welcome to my workshop – which my wife insists is really a double car garage. Since we only run one car, and all my tools are on wheels, we can maintain this charade quite amicably.
The dominant theme is wood storage, I got approx 1 cubic metre (I’ve no idea what that is in board feet and I don’t even want to work it out!) of Baltic pine about a month ago, so the first use for some of it was the industrial strength timber rack that stands against the right wall.
I got the Sawstop (240V, single phase, 3hp, 900mm table, complete with hydraulic wheel kit) two months ago. I upgraded from a Triton 2000 workbench, which is a lot like upgrading from a donkey to a Lear Jet. The Sawstop goes under the timber rack (behind the planner) when I’m forced to let the car into the workshop.
The Bosch compound Mitre saw is mounted on a mobile stand I built from a Fine Woodworking article. It works well and, when I get to finishing the fine tuning, I’m sure it will be back to being the precision instrument Bosch built.
The rest of it is fairly standard, in as far as anyone’s workshop is standard. A 325mm thicknesser, a 150mm planner, a 450mm bandsaw, a few routers and cordless drills, half a dozen handplanes, a few hand saws, nine chisels and a whole heap of other things I’ll find a use for someday.
