Ah the challenges of working out of a 1954 garage in Michigan. This is my humble workspace, all the tools have been acquired in a slow and painstaking manner! I mostly build stuff as a hobby, and as such I must share my space with my wife in the winter. The first picture shows my dust collection and workbench/storage, the second picture is more storage and my jointer, the third is my clamp rack. Pictures 4 and 5 are of my main workbench, and the last picture is proof that at some point, I can fit both the cars into the garage (looks like I picked a good night to take a picture).

My Tools:
Ryobi 10 inch table saw
Ryobi 10 inch mitre saw
Ryobi Router table
Old school floor drill press
Delta 1hp just collection
Delta jointer
Ridgid shop air filtration unit
Porter Cable router
Ryobi Router
Firestorm Plunge router
Dewalt 625 Router
Router Boss
Assorted means of joining things (kreg pocket hole, beadloc, porter cable biscuit joiner)
An old wood lathe in permanent storage under the bench (That was my first tool, and I just haven’t found time to get it out again)
Central Machinery 12 inch mitre saw
Central Machinery Hollow Mortiser
I’m sure I have several smaller tools, but I only pull them out once in a great while.

You have a nice shop space. Bummer having to share it with the vehicles. I tried that in my shop for awhile and then just finally gave up trying to fit my truck into the garage. But you appear to have organized your shop well and having your bench and tools on mobile stands is the only way to go if you have to put store “non-shop” essentials in there. :)

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Seems like a great use of space. Give the wife a hug for sharing it.

Looks organized, I found it much easy to ONLY put the car in side if it needs work. But I also share my “wood working” hobby with all my other “hobbys” . so my is still not big enough. And ….... no a guy can not have enough tools. I always look forward to a project that allows me to buy a new tool.

Looks very functional. I know how it is when you have to set up and put stuff away while using all the space available. Thanks for posting.

Hey, that’s the same craftsman drill press I have. Vintage but does the job. Nice workspace.

I used to have that same table saw setup… Ryobi BTS-21 and it looks like you have the Freud Diablo 40T General purpose blade it in… Nice rig, a little tricky with jigs and such, but if you orient them off the rip fence there’s nothing you can’t reasonably replicate function wise… A good friend of mine from college bought it, along with the dado stack and throat plate when I bought my BT3100… I miss how small that BTS-21 would fold up…

dbhost, the ryobi was a sweet saw, but I got a great deal on a new cabinet saw and have since sold the ryobi!

Brad: The pipe I was using was from a set bought from woodcraft

I’ve since upgraded to a larger DC and some 4 inch pipe.
