United States

I’m building out my first shop. It’s about 1.5 car garage-sized, with good light. Only have to share the first few feet with other family needs since we also have a basement. Very fortunate in that regard. Also fortunate to have inherited some older tools including Stanley/Bed Rock 3, 4, and 5 and picked up some old Disston saws over the year that I’m having sharpened up. Have a decent complement of benchtop tools. Decided I will never have a table saw for safety reasons; maybe a slider if I can ever afford that. Enjoying tinkering and making French cleats. Made the workbench in the center which doubles as a router table, and a shop vac cart which has been a big improvement in usability. Will make bearings and a base for a telescope as my first non-shop project.

Looks good. What kind of projects are you doing? A tablesaw can be very safe if you follow basic safety observations. I would be lost without mine although you can do everything by hand if you prefer. It just takes a lot longer.

Right now all my projects are building the shop! Next up is the base for an 8” dobsonian telescope. It’s a great project that people with the kind of skills on display here could do an amazing job with. Happy to direct towards resources if anyone’s interested.

I’m an emergency doctor. No interest in a table saw. Those sentences are related!

Found a granite counter topped cabinet with sink for $100 on CL. Arrives tomorrow. Very excited to have a sharpening station if all goes well with the delivery.

Have your say...
