This is my workshop/garage as of 3/13/11. I just cleaned it up this weekend and decided to take some updated pictures.

I finally measured the garage and it’s 24×24 with a 12’ ceiling. A portion of it is taken up by steps, clutter (a portion of my sectional, weightbench, boxes, etc.), some of my daughters toys, and yard stuff.

Not a lot has changed since I first signed up. But the pictures I had posted were from shortly after we moved into this house back in September. I didn’t have my bandsaw then and my tablesaw was apart as I was cleaning it up. These current pictures are pretty much how it’s been setup the past couple months.

You can probalby see most of these, but here’s a list of some of my tools:
- Delta 36-600 tablesaw
- Ridgid 14” bandsaw
- Delta 12” drillpress
- Delta 12½” planer (under my drillpress)
- Geetech 6” jointer (beside my drillpress)
- Craftsman 10” SMS
- Hitachi belt/disc sander (beside the mitresaw)

Everything else is small. Bosch Colt, D-handle, & 1613 plunge routers. Kreg K3. Porter Cable biscuit joiner & 371 belt sander. Dewalt ROS. Craftsman circular saw & jigsaw. Dewalt & B&D electric drills. Dewalt 14.4V, Craftsman 18V, and the entire Bosch 12V cordless drills. And various other things.

I don’t have much storage space. Some stuff in that cheap dresser the Hitachi sander is on. Some in my service cart. And I have a bunch of stuff on, above, and below that MDF workbench in the corner. It was there when we moved in. I can’t wait to demo that thing in late April/early May. A friend of mine is replacing his kitchen cabinets and he’s giving me his old base and wall cabinets for free.

I’m in the process of building that “worktable” you see in the first 2 pictures. Didn’t get a chance this weekend to get the 2 sheets of plywood and hardwood for the top. But it’s already given my tablesaw a break. ; )

That’s it for now. I’ll update in the future after I get those cabinets put in and the worktable complete.

It looks like you have put together a pretty nice shop. I particularly like the ceiling height that you have in your shop. I have 92” to the bottom of the joists in mine. Swinging full sized sheet goods, long boards and moving tall cabinets can be a challenge, at times, especially when trying to dodge the lighting.

Thanks for posting the pictures. I am looking forward to seeing the updates when you get a chance to post them.

Looking forward to seeing this one done! I have the same little jointer. Good one. Pity Sunhill went away…

I think my ceiling is 16’. I don’t know. I don’t even know what size my garage is. 20×20 or 22×20 or 22×24. Something like that. But going from a 12×16 shed to this is crazy.

I realize they’re the same jointers, but mine is actually a Geetech. Long story behind that so I’ll try to make it short. Bought it from WW supply back in May or June. Noticed the fence was damaged when I was unpacking it. E-mailed them about it hoping for a replacement but it was the very last one they had. Ever. And from reading reviews, this was the benchtop jointer I wanted. So instead of returning it I opted to accept the $25 they offered to credit my card. Putting it together I noticed the fence was damaged on the back side so it doesn’t affect anything. So I got it for $135-$140 I believe.
