Phoenix, AZ 5027
United States

My shop is in my 2 car garage. I started woodworking a little over 2 years ago so, everything I have in the shop has been acquired since then. I have Saw Stop 3Hp PCS, a jet 6 inch jointer, a Dewalt Planer, a Ryobi miter saw, a delta tabletop drill press, a delta oscillating spindle sander, an Incra LS-Super System router table etc..

Looks like you’ve been busy. It takes more than a little work to set up shop. Nice job.

Thanks. It definitely is a huge change from a year ago when my wife and I both parked our cars in there.

I just wish I had more space so that I could spread out some more, arrange my tools more efficiently, and get better dust collection.

It looks like you have managed to put together a pretty nice looking shop. You have it organized well and you have a nice collection of tools to play with. Kudos on keeping the cars out of there. I tried for a long time to have both a garage and a shop but eventually, after getting tired of the constant tear down and set-up, just consigned my truck to the weather. And, it gave me more room for tools!

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Very nice shop setup. Sorry we missed this when you posted it.

The ducting mod on your HF dust collector should have made an pretty good improvement in velocity. Did the same thing to ours including the Wynn filter. If you put a simple garbage can 1st stage in front of it you may never have to empty you bag or clean your filter. Think we have dumped our 30 gallon can 4-5 times and have almost nothing in the bag. We also installed some 1/2’ x 1” foam around where the plastic bag attaches under the spring clamp and get no leakage anymore.

Really like your outfeed table also.

Thanks for sharing.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the nice comments, i added a couple new pictures since I made 3 seperate tool carts to add to the shop (a miter saw cart, a drill press cart, and a planer cart) and rearranged a little since I uploaded the original photos.
