My shop lives in the corner of our 2-car garage. I back the van out when it’s time to make sawdust.

I have a cordless drill, circular saw and reciprocating saw and a basic router, RO sander and a portable table saw (all Porter Cable) and a Jigsaw.

I have a good collection of basic hand tools and a Craftsman tool box to keep them all in. It’s mobile by nature because being military, I move a lot. Would like to have a more “stationary” shop some day.

Chris, it sounds like you are off to a pretty good start on your shop. I am sure any of us would have loved to start out with a shop that was packed with top of the line tools. But building a shop one tool at a time is the way most of us have built up our shops. So you are on the right track. It sounds like you have a pretty good collection of hand/small power tools that will let you make all the sawdust that you want.

Keep us posted as you upgrade your shop.

Sounds like my shop when I was on active duty. The perfect size to ditty move! Those tools work every bit as good as the big ones, just takes a little more setup. Does the post still have a craft shop? The last post I was stationed at was Ft. Riley. It had a pretty good wood shop. I usually took the basic tools I wanted to work with. It’s hard to find sharp or straight hand tools in most of the craft shops. The one at Ft. Bragg was hard to find space or tools to work. I remember Leonard Wood had one in the late 80’s and 90’s. You never know what’s getting axed with budget cuts. Have fun and thanks for bringing the good Lord to our Soldiers.

You know, I haven’t checked…good thought. Might be a way to get some table sawing done, etc.
