Single Garage, transformed into a “living room” by the previous owner of the house. That means it has no garage door anymore but instead a wall with siding panels. Ugly and dark since it has no windows. However, it’s my workshop and its a lot better than no workshop at all.
Most of my tools are fairly cheap because I have to watch the budget very closely but I have gathered quite a few over time. A selection of the main machinery:
Craftsman 10” table saw with Freud blade build into a shop made cabinet that also includes a router table with a large cross cutting sled – the router is a 1.75 hp Porter Cable, Grizzly 14” band saw, Harbor Freight drill press on shop made stand with shop made drill press table, Harbor Freight 10” sliding compound miter saw on shop made table with folding extensions, shop made workbench with 0 vises (I gotta do something about that) and the crown jewel of my shop: a shop build CNC router with a 47×24 x 8 work area. The Porter Cable router acts as the motor here too.
In addition to that there are a bunch of hand power tools like circular saw, biscuit joiner, electric hand plane, drill, 1/4 sheet sander etc. Finally some non powered hand tools like a jack plane, chisels and the usual small stuff like screw drivers, wrenches etc..
Most of the bigger tools are on wheels so the shop is pretty configurable depending on the project.
I will take some pictures next time I swept and post them.
