I have a garage workshop. It is a 2 car garage with a 12×12 add on. My tools are mainly in the 12×12 space with some spillover into the main garage. We do keep my wifes car inside so I manage to keep one side void of woodworking debris.
Because of the small size everything is on wheels so when I need to make space for particular projects I can arrange the tools in the best configuration.
Tools that I have include
Craftsman 1 3/4 HP 10” Table saw with beisemeyer fence
Creaftsman 13” tabletop planer
Jet 14” deluxe bandsaw
That is all of the larger tools that I have, I do have a small collection of hand tools, planes, chisels, rasps, scrapers, saws ect. As well as hand held power tools, sanders (ros, belt, and mouse), biscuit jointer, drills, nailers (ok air tool), router, dremel, I am sure that I forgot a couple, but you get the picture.

Things that I would like to have (but don’t have space for) include 8” jointer and a dust collector (I currently use a shop vac and overhead filtration).

Overall nothing really special about my setup, except that it is mine, and I enjoy spending time creating furniture for family and friends.

How about some pictures to go with the narrative?

It sounds like you have an interesting shop and enough space and equipment to get the job done.

As far as finding a tool store goes I am betting that you will need to go into Columbus. Or you may want to consider the Internet. I have bought several tools from Tool Crib and Rockler’s.

He’s not in Ohio guy’s, he’s in south east Kansas. I grew up in Parsons.
