I’ve been relegated to one-half of our two-car garage. When it’s not partially submerged, during spring and late fall wet seasons, it’s fairly comfortable. A home-built workbench is the centerpiece, with tablesaw, router table, miter saw, and shop vac surrounding it. A planer is brought out when needed.
It’s far too small for any serious furniture jobs. I’m finally getting to the point where I’m really going to outgrow it soon. I’ve tried to buy the best tools I can reasonably afford (without leading to divorce) and I’ve recently learned the wonder of the sharp-edged hand tool.
My next big project will likely be a dining table or large cabinet. That will also be my first non-painted project, so I’ll finally need to have accurate cuts, tight tolerances and clean joinery. I’m looking forward to it.
Bosch 4000 Tablesaw
Kreg Router Table
PC 890 Router
Dewalt 735 Planer
Delta 10” miter saw
And more recently:
Lie-Nielsen Chisels and a couple Veritas planes. More of those to come!
