I have no workshop yet, stuff is currently residing behind the sliding door in my office to be used outside when I can. We are moving in a few weeks, and I hope to have a more permanent solution for the workshop then, and I’ll post pictures.
So far I have a compound sliding miter saw (Makita LS1016L); a Milwaukee 5615-20 1.75 hp router with both a fixed and a plunge base, an edge guard and so far only a slotting bit; an older DeWalt circular Saw that is still working great with a ripfence that I made out of hardboard; a cordless DeWalt drill; a skill jigsaw (I’m not sure how good this one is, and I might replace this at some point); a WoodRiver #5 Jack plane (I still want to get a block plane); various hammers, screwdrivers of various sizes and kinds, an awl and some other handtools.
I have built a stand for the miter saw making use of the 2x4 basics leg set. I’m using this for now as a bench as well, until we are in the new house and I can make myself a real bench. I also made some sawbucks from 2×4 with the crawford brackets from HD. Very sturdy, I’ve left the nails out of the top rail so that I can take them apart and store them. Eventually I’ll make another set of those as high as the top of the cutting table of the MS as supports for long lumber.
I’m drooling over a drillpress; a table saw; a bandsaw; a jointer and thickness planer, but I don’t think I’ll get any of these tools anytime soon.
