I finally got around to taking some pictures of the shop. The one car garage is 9’ x 18’ . This is the “dirty” area where I make the majority of the sawdust. Off the garage is a laundry room and through the laundry room you open into a large part of the basement, which is where I have some sheet good storage, the drill press, and an assembly table I made from some salvage cabinets. To the right of the large room is the workbench room (10’ x 12’), which houses my hand tools, more lumber, my portable power tools, and my workbench. There is also two glass block windows in the bench room, which bring in some great light if I can work down there on the weekend while the sun is out.
I switched over to Festool after seeing the dust collection. I’m able to use the saw, router, and sander “inside,” which makes it much more enjoyable (at least for me). I don’t have to pick between the cold winter, the hot/humid summer, or my wife. Now I can enjoy my hobby inside while still keeping the dust at bay.
Here is a small sample of my gear:
Steel City Table Saw
Ridgid Sliding Compound Miter Saw
Ridgid Oscilating Spindle Sander
Delta 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector
Jet 16” Drill Press
Festool TS 55
Festool RO 150
Festool ES 150
Festool OF 1400
Festool CT 22
Festool 1010 EQ VS
Many Lie Nielsen Saws, Planes, and Chisels
Many Veritas Planes
All-in-all, it’s a great little shop and I take pleasure in making it fit my needs. There is always something to work on and improve and that’s what makes it fun.
Thanks for stopping by.
