I work out of a large-ish one car garage (14×18) that is a dedicated workshop. I’ll add some pics in a bit.
Here is my basic tool list, in pretty much the order I bought them
Table Saw: Some no name used 12” contractor saw, big cast iron table though with a 50” Vega Fence
Scroll Saw: Delta (used all of two times)
Router: Ryobi Plunge Router
Planer: 13” Ryobi
Jointer: 6” Delta JT360 (cheapo)
Miter Saw: Makita LS1013
Band Saw: Grizzly G0555 14”
JigSaw: Bosch 1590EVSK (replaced a $20 piece of rubbish)
Circular Saw: Hitachi C7BD2 (replaced a cheapo skil saw)
Vacuum Press: Home built
Harbor Freight Dust Collector
I cut all my sheet goods with a circular saw on a sliding base connected to one of my two tru-grip guides, all my crosscuts on the miter saw, and all my rips on the table saw. I have a fancy Incra Miter Guage but it just gathers dust because I prefer using my miter saw for angled cuts.
The one thing I don’t have and really should is an actual workbench…
As you can see from the pics it can be a bit hard to move around. This is post project, it started off all neat and tidy and then spiraled into this. My wife can hardly bare to look :) Before the next project I’ll tidy it all up again, till then it’s a testament to my productivity.
In the background of that first pic you can see the left over teak/holy ply from Fins boat bed, and pic five shows my homemade vacuum pump system (that connects to a big bag)
