some basic tools to get started:

Ridgid ts3650 TS
Ridgid w1200 Lathe
6” Geetech Jointer
12 1/2” Dewalt Planar
10” Delta Compound Miter Saw
650 cfm Jet Dust Collector
14” Ryobi Metal Chop saw
vintage 7620 B&D Router (handheld)
Craftsman 3.5 hp (hah! right) Plunge router (table to be made soon)
POS Benchtop 1/2 hp 5 spd Drill Press
CM disk/belt sander
vintage Craftsman wet stone grinder/sharpener
6” Ryobi bench grinders

Total Cost for all tools = ~ $1350

Sad that I had to sell my 14” grizzly 1019 bandsaw and older ryobi 16/32” drum sander that needed work, I really need those two tools again but financial limitations have made me either not do certain projects or do them a longer, more tedious method, which i really dislike cuz it usually involves a lot of ugly sanding….
Cost for Grizzly BS = $140 Ryobi DS = FREE (everything worked good but needed drum to be re-balanced….I hustle on CL pretty well ‘n I bought the jointer and planar off the same guy)
Selling prices Grizzly = $250 Ryobi DS = $250
Sometimes it pays more to do less =)

Every handheld power tool you could need just about:
belt sander, biscuit joiner, circular saws, reciprocating saws, jig saws, dremels, drills blah blah blah.

Oh yeah, and TONS of salvaged/free/nearly free wood/stone/glass….I have LOTS of plans but too many materials now, need to get to work! Reason I have hardly made anything is because I’ve been making decent money re-selling commodities/free stuff this past year, mostly from Craigslist.

Hi Chris,

Your shop sounds interesting. How about posting some pictures when you get a chance?
