Camden, OH 45311
United States

A few pics of my half-assed (mostly my organization) woodshop. I’m still getting things setup but it’s coming along.

For power tools I have a mix of cheap tools (table saw, sliding miter, Skil plunge router, various harbor freight items like drills and biscuit joiner) some nicer tools (Dewalt planer, Porter Cable jointer, Hitachi 18v cordless drills impacts and circular saw). Nothing is really high end or professional quality but everything does it’s job as needed by me.

For hand tools I have a mix of new and restored antique items that I find myself reaching for more often than the power alternatives.

As can be seen in the pictures I am in the process of building a hand tool workbench which will increase the functionality of the space. Once that is complete I have a kitchen island to build that I may have promised the Mrs. 6 months ago..

I have only gotten in to wood working about a year ago, my wife thinks I collect more tools than build things but I’m hoping to rectify that by building up this space and completing some honey-do projects.

-- By "Woodshop" I mean my two car garage full of wood and tools.

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. Just before the pics were taken I “cleaned up” by running a leaf blower and blowing all of the sawdust out into my yard / driveway. It was all untreated pine I had been working with so I wasn’t concerned about anything hurting my yard. At some point I’ll take that table set over to the camper and throw away the garden hose with a hole in it thats been sitting there since summer lol

I’m done buying power tools, I think I have all I need even though my standing band saw needs some refurbishing. I want a lathe as well but considering making a treadle powered one. I may replace a few corded items like my reciprocating saw and jigsaw with cordless versions. Hand tools on the other hand… I keep finding new things I “need”.

I just purchased a 100 yr old rusty Stanley no 5 to restore and add to my collection. Now I’m eyeballing the no 7 and no 8 jointer planes. (rusty Stanley eBay versions, although I like to drool over them, I just can’t spend the money on the Lie-Nielson and Veritas versions).

Speaking of the fancy tool makers, after buying the Veritas dovetail saw, I want the carcass and tenon saws to round out my fancy set. I love the look and they are super sharp and easy to use.

For panel saws I have an early 1900’s Disston D8 thumbhole ripsaw and a 1940’s- 1950’s Disston knock off crosscut that belonged to my wife’s stepfathers father. I also have 3 Japanese style saws (a Ryoba and a rip and x-cut Dozuki). Anytime I need to cut a board to length I nearly always use the Ryoba.

Still on my list of things to find a good deal on:
Froe
Draw knife
Stanley 71 Router plane
Single bevel axes (right and left)
DMT diamond stones (My waterstones will likely last a few more years, but when I do replace them)
Slicks / framing chisels
Adze
Carving chisels (I have 0 artistic ability but I think I could carve some patterns in to things to make them a little nicer ala James Wright)
