Not much to brag about but as a lot of novices, I use the other half of my garage for my shop. My assembly area and “finishing room” is the area vacated by my truck that stays outside during a project. I’ve been working on adding to my tool inventory: I started with an old Craftsman 10” contractor style table saw that I have upgraded with a new fence system, pulleys/link belt, home made outfeed table and dust collection system. Over the years, I have added a Ridgid 6” jointer and 13” thickness planer, a 14” Delta X5 bandsaw with riser block, ShopFox dust collection unit, and a 12” Porter Cable compound miter saw. My router table is home made. Probably the most extravagant recent purchase was the Delta 18/36 drum sander (which really is a nice luxury…but I’m glad I got the dust collector first!). My workbench I made myself out of a reclaimed kitchen base cabinet after we remodeled our house. I’m thinking of upgrading to a cabinet saw, but the old Craftsman cuts true and square and the money may be better spent on some choice hardwoods to render into sawdust.
