I decided to get back into woodworking about 3 years ago after a 10 year absence. We decided to allocate a corner of our unfinished basement to the shop and while small by some standards it seems to fit my needs for now.
The centerpiece of the shop is the Jet Table Saw. When I decided to return to woodworking I committed to getting the best I could afford when I made a major investment in a shop tool. like most woodworkers I know I tend to aquire new tools as the project I’m currently working on requires, but for major tools I usually make 1 major purchase per year. I still have a bandsaw, a midi-lathe and perhaps a joiner on my wish list.
The first picture shows the North wall of the shop with shelf storage and a roll around cabinet I made with 3/4” Melamine and usually hold my benchtop drill press. The drill press is a 12” Fisch – after reading a number of reviews I decided on the Fisch because of it’s full metal construction.
The 3rd picture shows my Delta P-20 scrollsaw and Delta 13.5” planer. Both were Christmas presents from my wife – whose motto is keep the woodworker happy and you get first priority on project requests.
The 4th picture shows my router table. I assembled the table from a collection of parts after trying several tables that didn’t seem to fit my needs. The top is a Jessem as is the fence and mitre guage. The router is a Porter-Cable 690 and is dedicated to the table.
The 5th image is my in shop wood rack – I just can’t turn down a pretty board.
Last image is a closeup of the Melamine cabinet and the Fisch drill press.
Thanks for visiting
Come back soon.
