Chesapeake, Va
United States

Alright, here we go. My family and I moved back to Virginia and to this property around 3 yrs ago. I was pumped, I finally had my own external garage, it’s a little old, but it was mine.
Living in Oklahoma previously I use to be really heavy into rock crawling, metal fab and what not. So at first I had all the stuff in my garage to do just that. Well rock crawling in my part of Virginia is pretty much non existent, so all my stuff just sat there and was barely used.
I’ve always been interested in woodworking, but in the last year or so that interest has grow quite a bit larger. I’ve been buying a few machines here and there , so now my garage was getting really cramped.
So about a month ago, I got up the nerve to sell my crawler, it was hand built by me, so it was a little hard and emotional to sell, but I had to do it.
So now that it is gone, the wood shop will begin. I hope to update this regularly so you all can see my progress and offer advice.

Size: 15×30 x 7.5.

This is one of the project I’m trying to complete for the shop. This table came with the shop, it was built really well and I don’t want to cut it up. I’m going to put a new top on it, fix the drawers and re finish it. I figure I can learn a few new things and gain a new bench/outfeed table.

Top was removed tonight, now that I know what was underneath I need to figure out what king of top I’m going to build.

Nice shop!...Everyones shop here is constantly changing. When I started, I bought some used and some just ok tools and tried to do the best wiht them I could. I graded them like in school…...I had a C- bandsaw for a while, and such. I have bought and sold tools until I am now pretty much where I want to be ( well until new stuff that I can’t live without, comes out). That PM jointer is A+ to be sure! Thanks for showing!

I had a D- table saw to start with, I told myself I would never use stuff like that again.

There is poor machinery and a waste of money and time using it…...one must weigh those factors in buying/using some machinery, no matter what the price.

No progress yet, I’ve been fighting what I believe is pneumonia. Sitting at the doctors office now, so fun.

When starting fresh try to get the best machinery that you can and better to take it slow and get quality. I hate rebuying because I tried to go cheap. The PM jointer is a great start!!

I would rather not rebuy either, trying to buy the best I can to save money in the long run.

Have your say...
