My shop is a 3 car attached garage. Insulated but not heated (hopefully before next winter.
My work space occupies about half of that (my wife won’t let me leave her car in the driveway with mine).
I’ve been adding to my tool collection rather slowly, which began when I was doing some construction over summers in college.

Currently working from a Ridgid portable table saw & compound sliding miter saw.
I have a Ridgid compressor & framing nailer (haven’t used that in ages) & senco finish nailers.
Kreg Jig, of course.
I’ve had an old DeWalt 18v XRP set all along. Still use the drill a ton & the circular saw for ripping sheet goods.

I have a Milwaukee 5615-20 router & would like to build a table for it soon.

Feeling the need for a drill press more than any other tool I don’t have but also considering a surface plainer & a jointer as my next purchases so that I can start buying rough cut lumber & milling it myself instead of getting s4 from Menards.

I have a few clamps but not enough.

I have a number of cheap sanders & I usually do finish work in my unfinished basement, which is huge & has big windows for ventilation & natural light so I can see what I’m doing.

Yep, you can never have enough clamps.

Keep up the good work.

Be Careful!
