So, i’m about to set up my new shop in our basement, and I’m going to end up with about 7’-2”+ ceilings to bottom of ceiling joists. What tools would you LJ’ers recommend to start out my shop with and in what order to start out? A few things to consider:
My first planned project: I hope to be walnut veneered bookshelves with solid edge banding (very modern/ 90 degree detailing here) These would be adjustable, etc.
What I have currently: Just about every hand (power) tool I could ever need (grinder, hand held planer, circular saw, routers, impact drill/ driver, chop saw, jig saw, palm sander, compressor, finish nail guns, Kreg jig, table saw (R4511 NIB, that will be unpacked/ setup once floor is poured). Plan on executing an integral router table for the R4511 once i get up & running. Can’t wait to post!
I don’t plan on ‘milling’ a lot of my own wood, but did just score the mother load of reclaimed beams/ wide pine from a historic post & beam structure I’m renovating, so perhaps a hand held metal detector for nail removal?
Also, and lastly, just disengaged our former 220v kitchen range, and switched to LP. Now have that circuit and feed available to run the R4511 on 220v. Advantages?
Thanks everyone! Stay warm.
