This is my humble little shop. It isn’t the nicest or biggest, but it’s mine and I love it. I built it in ‘09 with the help of my wife, brother and neighbor. It’s about 200sqft which is really all I need since I just make mostly small projects. Of course it would be nice to have a little more room for wood and stuff, but it is insulated and I have a window unit to use on the hot days.
I finally got a nice bandsaw and a drum sander I’ve been wanting for quite some time. In addition, I recently added the Ridgid oscillating sander to my collection. I’ve been very happy with all three. One of my favorite “accessories” is the cabinet with all of the drawers under the workbench. It was built about 50-60 years ago by my grandad’s uncle. It appears at some point someone started to strip it for refinishing but didn’t get very far.
The main power tools:
Jet JWTS-10 table saw w/Shop Fox Aluma Classic Fence, Shark Guard and Incra 1000SE miter gauge
Grizzly G0555P band saw with 6” riser
Grizzly G0716 drum sander
Hitachi C12FDH 12” miter saw
DeWalt DW734 12 1/2” planer
Porter Cable PCB420SA belt/disc sander
Ridgid EB44242 oscillating sander
Geetech 6” jointer
MLCS router table with DeWalt 2.25hp router
Porter Cable 690 router
Craftsman 12” drill press
Central Machinery 12” disc sander
Originally, I was planning on painting the interior of the shop, but I love the smell and was afraid it would cover it up, so I decided to leave it. Besides, it hides the sawdust better anyway. Thanks for looking.
