My workshop is not now, in a state to tolerate photographing. It’s is in the dry, accessible basement of our home & has a ground level entrance as well as stairs to the kitchen. The bench bears evidence of about 35 years of work, mainly—but not completely—on small projects. Some tools came with me when I left the farm in 1966. I’ve accumulated others, mostly used, over the years. Regarding fixed power tools, I’ve adapted them to my dust collector, built table extensions & so forth. Mostly, I arrange tools & space in relation to the current project.
So, I use hand tools a great deal & usually keep an assortment on the bench, which also holds several vises, a band saw & a drill press, both table types. The table saw is old but hearty, a 10” Delta. There are also a router table & a cut-off saw at separate stations. One of my proudest achievements is a sanding table, with hood, to deal with many fine dust problems. And there’s a 1 HP dust collector connected to it and various power tools.
Frankly, I look forward to having conversations & sharing experiences with folks whose work & interests are akin to mine. These I display @ www.patchwoods.com. In addition, though a retired bloke with time on my hands, I I have a muchl to learn from others.
