Rockwall , Texas 75087
United States

Ive only been woodworking for a little over a year so my shop has a long ways to go.

My 1 car garage shop is mostly focused on hand tools, however I do have a few modern machines here in the shop..

You’ve got a good sized space and a good selection of tools all you need to do is ad some spare time, stir and those projects will just start popping like Orville’s popcorn in a hot microwave!

Year one for me was a handsaw, jig saw, pistol drill with a sanding disk, hammer and nails. Your off to a great start.

All I see is the Thor mallet;-)

You’ll be surprised at how much it’ll change over the years to come.

Nice Jordan. Do you tune that mower using the scary sharp method?

Luckily the push mower is self sharpening.

BRK that mallet has already changed a ton but its abused and used constantly.

Looks like a great start, Jordan. It’ll be fun to watch the evolution.

BTW, what’s the hatchet? I just recently purchased a single bevel head off ebay, modified a hickory axe handle to fit and am starting to learn how to actually use it.

Its a single bevel hatchet..
It is very old, it has tooling marks from a blacksmith.
It appears to be somewhere between a Kent and a Hewing axe of sorts..

I use it all the time along with my 1930’s Keenkutter axe
