I’m currently crammed into half of a 2 car garage and a boat shed of recycled timber, mainly Rimu. The workshop will sometime in the next few years move closer to the location of our 100Ha ( 250 acres ) of forest property. A purpose built shop will eventually be built made of adobe brick and NZ red beech timber rafters along with a solar kiln to process my own self-milled windthrow NZ Red and Silver Beech.
I currently own the basic power tools, having picked up bits and pieces over the years and some parts of the collection still to be updated :)
Beaver/Delta 10” Contractor’s 1hp table saw (with a sharp blade and some care in setup of a very persnickety fence, perfectly serviceable but I still dream of that Unisaw – which is not available in NZ)
Holytec 8” jointer
Delta 12” portable planer
Home built router table ( from Woodsmith plans) using a 3hp Dewalt router
Delta 14” drill press
Tauco ( foreignly sold Delta ) 14” bandsaw ( about 1940 model – see pic )
Ryobi 8” radial arm saw
Custom built professional wood lathe ( from about 1960’s – recent acquisition )
and a whack of hand tools
-- If you can't joint it, bead it!
