I built my workshop in 2013 after deciding to retire early from IT consulting. I wanted to start a new career doing something I liked. Most of the shop is new, except for the bench which I had built about 12 years ago.

Major Power Tools:

Hammer 16” Jointer-Planer combo (A3-41)
Hammer 17” Bandsaw (N4400)
Delta 14” Bandsaw
Delta 10” Contractor Saw
16 1/2” Variable Drill Press
Router Table w/ 3 1/4hp Porter Cable Router (7518)
Craftsman 6” Bench Grinder
Bosch 12” Dual Bevel Glide Miter Saw (GCM12SD)
2hp Oneida Dust Gorilla
Fuji Mini-mite 3 HVLP sprayer

Very well thought out, nice execution, and some great tools. That jointer looks bigger than my RAS station!

Congratulations on retirement and doing what you enjoy. I am so with you on doing something you enjoy, and not what puts big dollar bills in your pockets.

Ron,
I bought the 2 HP Dust Gorilla cyclone back in 2004. It took me close to 10 years to finally turn it on. It works well.

The bench weights about 350 lbs. I expect it to outlast me by 30 years!

I would really like to see a post on your table saw stand as I am about to build something similar. The platform seems like 3/4 ply with bracing in the middle. Have seen any flex on the corners, at the castors? Also, it looks like you probably have a motor out back, how does the out feed table accommodate the tilt?

In any event that is a terrific, super enviable shop and you turn out some great work.

Thanks for posting.

Mike, I’ve added the table saw mobile base station to my projects. There are a number of pictures that may help you with what you are looking for. Send me an email if you need more info.
