These shots show my dedicated workshop space custom designed for furniture and cabinetry. I am hoping to do a panoramic shot soon. This is just the back corner. I do custom projects and never build the same thing twice. I normally build one large project every month or two then fill in between projects with smaller builds that can be started and finished all in the same day. This is also a great process to help maintain cutoffs and leftovers. I don’t call leftovers / cutoff scrap as I enjoy utilizing those chunks the most.

Since I mainly do carpentry work and utilize power tools to achieve this the workbenches are the center of my universe. I do not collect machinery or routers. Most of my work is done with small hand tools and do not need to utilize machinery. I do have several bench-top tools and they work great for me.

A quick inventory of my shop:

Hitatchi 10IN hybrid saw
Dewalt 12IN slider
HF Dust collection
2 fully modular and portable Ron Paulick work benches (modified for cabinet builders)
Jet Mini Lathe
Skil Benchtop bandsaw
Porter Cable Cheap-o thickness planner ( works amazing for the price )
Ryobi Scroll Saw
Skil Benchtop Drill press
Shop Vac Contractors Vac with upgraded 10ft hose for dust collection at the tools level
I also have relays placed on all my dust collections so the Dust collector and vacs automatically start when the on switch is flipped on the power tool. Thanks for the idea Festool!!

That is all the main machinery I own. The rest of the tools are power tool. I am a big fan of Bosch power tools. I love the simplicity of them and they are very affordable relatively speaking.

I own:

Bosch Impacter , Drill , Colt palm router , RO palm sander , power hand planer ,and jig saw.

I am slowly replacing all the older power tools I own and my next purchases will be a Bosch circular saw and belt sander soon.

This is an old photo of my power tool shelving. I packed full now. This was day number one after I built it out of an old desk.

Nice and clean. I see you have the Ron Paulk bench. YOu must be an organised cabinet maker.

-- Every project is an opportunity to acquire new tools and any solution that requires buying a new tool is the correct one.

Welcome to LJs – repeat after me – my name is_ and I’m a woodworker! The first step is admitting you have a problem, next is joining a large group who has the same problem and can give you invaluable information on how to continue your addiction with your family/friends approval!

Have your say...
