The shop has a tablesaw ,bandsaw, 2 chopsaws ,2 scrollsaws ,dado saw,drillpress ,woodlathe ,air compresser , surface planer and alot of electric powertools such as drills ,biscuitcutter,router & table ,2 disk sanders and 2 jigsaws. It’s a small work shop ,but I hope to add to it later on . right now it’s big enough for what i’m doing now. I do most of my resawing on the bandsaw and some on the tablesaw. I made a special jig for my bandsaw for resawing and it works pretty good . I get most of my wood like cypress from a sawmill . Cypress holds up pretty well outdoors & weather’s good. I have made alot of outdoor furniture such as swings,gliders, chairs,picnic tables out of cypress wood . White oak is a good choice of hardwood for outdoor use, but it’s hard to find down here in my neck of the woods !!

Is your shop a separate building? It might be small but it’s nice.
