My workshop is a single bay in a 3 car garage (spilling over into 2nd bay now) and definitely a work in progress. We just moved into a new house about 9 months ago, but of course the priority has been getting the family settled… not getting the workshop put back together. That means that I get a couple hours a week to either re-assemble/re-align machines or to move materials around to get things organized. I’ve got several projects in progress that will help, but they progress slowly.
The shop is very well equipped. I’ve got the following machines:
- Cabinet saw (actually have 2 – one is unused in the crate and needs to be sold)
- 6” Jointer
- 2 lathes (a Powermatic 2035 and a Harbor Freight cheapo I learned on)
- 18” Band saw
- Drill Press
- Bunch of Routers (I think I’m up to 5… need to stop buying them at estate sales)
- 2 Scroll Saws
- Ridgid Sander
I’ve also developed a taste for hand tools. I have a bunch of planes that I bring out to play occasionally and a few collectors items I let look nice in my office on a shelf.
Right now I’m working on a bench… which I’ll blog about. And some cabinetry for our bonus room… which has turned into toy central for our boys.
