1-car garage, insulated but not heated/cooled except for a space heater in the winter. Big tools include:

SawStop contractor saw with 52” rails, T-Glide fence, cast iron wings, and 27” outfeed table
Split-top Roubo-style workbench with 33” long Moxon-style vise by Hovarter
Delta Shopmaster jointer JT360
Delta 12.5” planer
Makita 10” sliding compound miter saw
Rigid oscillating belt/spindle sander
Spectra 7.5” bandsaw
DeWalt 618 router with Rockler table, plate, and fence
Trend mini-plunge router
EurekaZone track saw system

My planes are Stanley and Wood River. My low angle and standard block planes are always in the mix and for my bench planes, the numbers 3, 4-1/2, 6, and 7 get most of the work. I prefer Stanley 750-series chisels. Then there are my other handtools, drills, 1/4 sheet and RO sanders, jigs, clamps, etc. My most-used cordless drills are Festool, both the CXS and a T12. There are also quite a few DeWalt and Bosch tools in my shop. I prefer Forrest and Freud saw blades, and Freud’s router bits, especially the Quadra-Cut. For dovetailing I use David Barron’s dovetail guides and the Gyochuko 372 dozuki he recommends—after using it I recommend it too! There’s also a LOT of Kreg stuff in my shop. Their K4 pocket hole jig gets used when I can hide the pockets and trust the strength of the joint. I also love their miter gauge, automaxx clamps, and bench dogs.

The storage cabinets and tool stands are all homemade from sheathing-grade 3/4” plywood, doors are 3/4” poplar with MDF panels. DC in the shop is handled by a HF 13-gal, 1 HP wall-mounted system with an Oneida Super Dust Deputy and 3-micron bag. I have a Craftsman shop vac with an Oneida Dust Deputy in a rolling cabinet to pick up the slack and clean the floors. Ambient air dust collection is via a homemade filter that uses a 1,340 CFM gable fan and a series of three 20” x 20” furnace filters mounted on the ceiling.

Pneumatic tools are Bostich (16 and 18 gauge nailers and staplers), Porter-Cable (23-gauge pinner), plus Campbell-Hausfields (drill, impact driver, sanders) inherited from my dad’s old Porsche-restoration shop. They are driven by a Stanley-Bostich pancake compressor.

But most importantly, the tunes are always on and the beer is always cold.

Nice setup. I like the combination Planer/Bandsaw cart. Nice use of space.

Nice setup. Your combination planer / bandsaw cart gives me ideas for a combination planer / benchtop jointer cart… Thanks for the inspiration!
