I know all the comments were light hearted and in good fun, but I’ve been quite busy and after signing on to LJ I haven’t had the time to post any pictures.
I put a couple of pictures up of the shop. I’ll take better photos later. These were just quickies to get everyone off my back ;) I’m an amateur (would like to turn pro one day) photographer so I want to play with the lighting and get the shop all set up Better Homes and Gardens style to get some great shots. The shop is always a work in progress and mine has a lot of work left. But…it gives you a general idea of what’s going on in there.
The next tool purchase will likely be a Grizzly 17” bandsaw. I’m deciding if I want the motor brake or not. Is it worth the extra $200 plus shipping (the one without has free shipping, I think). I’m looking at the G0513X2.
After that, I think I need a jointer. Any suggestions on a good jointer?
Then I want a new floor standing drill press….drum sander….the list goes on and on, but the garage doesn’t get any bigger. I need one side of the garage to park a car in the winter, so I’m limited to my 13×24’ footprint.
There are two pictures of the shop posted along with one picture of my latest project, another cutting board. These make such wonderful gifts and now that I got the build time down from 6 hours each to 3 hours each (amazing what a good table saw can do for straighter cuts and reduced sanding time) I’ll be able to make a lot more.
