Nothing more than a small room in my basement. Pictures seem to make it look darker than it really is. Obviously, everything centers around the Powermatic table saw. I love that thing! The “big” items are:
Powermatic PM2000 – 10” tablesaw with the 52” fence.
DeWalt DW735 Planer
Craftsman jointer – I acquired it from my grandfather a year ago
DeWalt Dw718 12” compound sliding miter saw

6/2008 Update
I’ve added some new tools this spring and summer.
Festool OF1400 Router
Festool RO125 Sander
Festool PS300 Jig Saw
Festool CT22 Dust Extractor
Triton 2-1/4 Plung Router (mounted in the extension of the PM2000)
ALL of these tools have been a true joy so far. I’m really looking forward to getting back into the shop this fall. For now, it’s just too nice outside to be cooped up in the basement.

That is an excellent space. Great start with the table saw! As the others have said, looks like you have a lot more space for more goodies. From one basement shop owner to another, paint the walls white, it will make it seem a lot brighter in your shop.

I noticed how you have your planer setup in the flip over cabinet. I’ve seen that design in Wood Magazine before and thought about doing the same? How do you like it?

I have been looking at the 735 Planer and thinking about building the same type planer cabinet (I think plans for one were featured in Dec Fine Woodworking). Is it everything you thought it would/should be? Any regrets or suggestions for someone considering it?
Nice space. Thanks for sharing.

Nice shop with plenty of area to expand your tool set. I put the PM2000 (along with a Sawstop) on my Christmas list but I guess Santa didn’t have a lift gate on his sleigh. Nice saw. I can understand it being the focal point of your shop.

Thanks for all of the nice replies. The planer cart is great. I sized it so that the planer will outfeed at the same height as the tablesaw, and, eventually a saw outfeed table. The only thing I haven’t figured out is how to make it stable without the use of some type of back brace. It would be nice to be able to put two pieces of equipment on it (one on either side) but, for now it’s a nice little work surface on the second side!
Also, check out Gizmodyne’s cart here.
