United States

Basement boat garage with single bay garage door. The first 15 feet are general crap storage, the next 20 feet are all mine. (Until my wife needs somewhere to put something. I am the king of my castle, when she’s not home. :) )
2 permanent work benches in an L shape. One 8 foot by 30 inches 2×4 construction custom height so I don’t have to bend over. The other is a matching height but the base is old kitchen cabinets 10 feet long with old counter top as the work surface. The sink cut out used to be used for a small chop saw but after the saw upgrade is it just a solid surface.
Middle of the work area is the small, cheap table saw with a small table. I’ve added a 4’x4’ MDF table around the sides and back of the saw so I can work sheet goods.
The left side of the shop has a woodcraft router table with a 30 year old B&D router semi-permanently mounted.
On a mobile sled I also have a Hitachi double bevel sliding compound miter saw. I just love saying that to my wife to achieve that glazed over look.
I use a 30 year old shop vac as my dust collector, hope to upgrade that in the near future, I just move it from tool to tool.
Most of my hand tools and some of the hand held power tools were inherited from my grandfathers or my uncle who has retired from home building.
