I have been building things all my adult life. I spent ten years doing cabinets for corporate jet interiors. Then left that and went back into residential cabinets. The last few years I’ve really started making things for myself. Furniture around the house, cabinets and furniture to sell, whatever catches my interest.
Recently, I have started branching out and exploring new projects. I gave my home shop a name, Haven Wood Crafts, that reflects how I feel about spending time working out there. I do have more work than I have time for with my day job but not quite enough to quit. So right now I’m sinking all the money I make back into tools and materials I want or think I need. If things continue to pick up at this pace I may have to think about going at it full-time.
I’ve been busy. In January I decided my workshop wasn’t working out. It was too crowded and There wasn’t anywhere to work. So I started sketching things up and deciding what I wanted versus what what I can afford and make work. I came up with a few cabinets that I think will do the job. A rolling workbench/outfeed table, a router table, cabinet for my drill press and scroll saw, and a rack to hold benchtop tools along with small cabinet to set them on to use. I’m just getting things into shape to use the shop again. Time to start some thing new.
A list of my tools:
Delta 10” Contractor saw
Hitachi 16” Scroll saw
B&D benchtop drill press
B&D 4×36 belt & 6”disc sander

This is it. Thanks for looking around.
