Workshop Information

Location
United States
Not a big workshop and just a few items to start me off with, but with the economy and my wife's impending layoff, it will be good enough for now.

Currently I work in a small garage along with all of the bikes and other things the kids believe they need! I have a benchtop firestorm drill press, a Skil 16" scroll saw, a Craftsman 10" radial arm saw and an older craftsman 10" contractor table saw (belt drive which I am happy with) that I bought off of craigslist for $100. Need to work on some upgrades (better fence system - hopefully the Delta T2 30" when I have the money, etc) and start building jigs to work on my skills. I am looking forward to some projects such as a captains bed for my son as well as other projects around the house. Once I get the garage cleaned up (again!) I will post a couple of pictures. Nothing as awesome as some of the shops I have seen on this site so far, but hopefully a good start.

Steve, your shop sounds interesting. I am looking forward to seeing a visual tour of your shop.

I can empathize with you about the fence on your Craftsman saw. I had a Craftsman saw that I fought with to get a decent cut for over 10 years and the fence was the biggest problem with the saw. Several members here have upgraded their fences and the T2 worked well for several of them.
