Vacaville, CA
United States

I started setting up shop in my garage in 1998 and have been gradually adding tools, bits and blades. While I can do decent work with the tools I have I plan to upgrade and add more tools in the future. I biggest issue is space and I have all of my tools mobile. If need be I can park our SUV inside. Since it’s a garage I share the space with bicycles washer & dryer and other items stored over head. I hope to build a detached shop in our back yard one of these years.

Reminds me of my old garage shop. It seems like just yesterday.

Nice setup!

Great shop. I like the router setup. I’ve goot the Woodhaven version. But I need to work on the dust collection. Because it’s now an outdoors tool.

Dan the issue is vol. 12 issue 68. The project has quite a hardware list and most items are found at the hardware store. The T track and knobs I purchased at a woodwork supply. Over all the jig works quite well but there are some issues that can be improved upon from the original plan.

Man, that must be nerve wracking to move the drill press. Has that ever fallen over?

Hey I grew up in Vaca… Go bulldogs! that is unless you live on the will c wood side? Nice shop I love the router set up my buddy has a cast iron version I think he called it a multi-router and he does all his loose tenon stuff with that but he paid a mint! Hopefully I can find the plans. You said it needed some improvements, could you tell me what they are. Thanks James
