Perhaps I should have started in this forum, but I jumped right in.
I am now back into woodworking as it was something I did with my father a bit. I now have the majority of his tools so I think I’ve got a decent start. I’m going to list what I have, what my goals are, and let me know what I might consider purchasing.
Sliding miter saw- brand new
a few clamps
older craftsman router- 1hp, not a plunge, and a small assortment of bits
ros- older, but it’s still going need to replace the pad
basic toolbox tools wrenches,
one block hand plane,
kreg jig and screws
circular saw, older and heavy
I have very limited space in my garage and usually drag my saw horses out into the yard and set up shop out there as the table I made for the garage is mostly for storing everything.
I make mostly smaller stuff, cutting boards, etc. completed a dining table, and working on a coffee table now. Not looking to make fine furniture really, but stuff that people request, and it’s a little side hustle for me.
I have some slabs I want to work on to make coffee tables, and so I need to figure out how to make that planing jig for a router.
But anything your guys would recommend? I thought a table saw, but I really don’t have the room, and then I thought that a band saw would work instead?
I also find myself needing to plane and square up boards and a planer is out of the question, so maybe a good hand plane, and learn how to use the router for this as well?
open for any suggestions, thanks!
