Well, it seems that I have to update this every other year… I guess that comes with the territory when your in the military. I’ve decided to do a quick video showing off my little corner.
My current shop is part of a one car garage. I have to store some things in it as well. I plan on purchasing a house after my next deployment, and a house with at least a 2 car garage is going to be on the wishlist. So, in about another year I’ll have to update this again LOL.
I bought my bench off of craigslist for a sweet price of $80. I threw together some basic drawers out of 2×4 stock to hold misc. tools.
The router table was something I threw together quickly for my 3.5 HP craftsman router. I plan on building a new one once I get the time/money to purchase the lumber. I think I am going to go with similar one to Norm Abrams from NYW.
The Tablesaw is the Ridgid 3650 which I got for a great deal at HD. It is a much better saw than the old Craftsman benchtop saw I used to have. I have a zero clearance insert coming soon.
The Penn State Industries Lathe, I purchased a while back to turn small items (pens) and it has done well since I have had it. Since I first got it I have started turning small bowls using the Penn State 4 Jaw chuck, which I have no idea how I did without. It is sitting on a sturdy stand I threw together with 2×4’s. Eventually I want to upgrade to a full-size lathe.
My Ryobi Drill Press was purchased shortly after the lathe, and is sitting on a stand I threw together which has my drill bit boxes on slides readily accessible when I need them.
The Ridgid Bandsaw has been a workhorse for me. I have cut many a bowl blanks on it. I have upgraded it with a grizzly riser block, and have a woodslicer resaw blade on it. It cuts like a dream.
As usual I always want more tools, wood etc. I think the next purchase on the horizon is a good dovetail jig.
