This is my modest workshop. I built all the cabinets, installed all the lighting, installed the utility sink, ran a sub-panel to handle the power tools and put all my power tools on casters. I aslo built my workbench but will eventually be upgrading that with a real woodworking workbench. The tools that aren’t shown on the plan are my mortising machine (Delta), 12 1/2” planer (Delta), and 4” jointer(Craftsman) which are on separate carts that I roll into the shop when needed from an adjoining storage room. Tools are all budget to mid-grade due to finances but they seem to work just fine. I have thoroughly enjoyed putting my shop together in the past year.
Update September 12, 2011 – I have recently replaced the 4” Craftsman benchtop jointer with a Ridgid 6 1/8” stationary jointer. I love it. What a nice piece of equipment. Also, I have purchased the Harbor Freight benchtop oscillating spindle sander and it works like a charm.
Update October 19, 2011 – I have replace the Ridgid Shop Vac with a Harbor Freight 2hp dust collector. I then built and attached the Thein separator which works wonders. In addition, I replaced the filter bag that comes with the HF dust collector with the 1 micron cannister filter from Wynn Environmental. I love this dust collection system.
