Workshop Information

Location
United States
Over the past few months I've worked to expand my workshop as I've gotten in to this whole woodworking thing. I'm not very good at it, but its relaxing to go out in the garage and constantly have to figure out how to fix my mistakes and thats all that matters, right?

I'm in the process of building new wall cabinets and workbenches along the wall because I have more crap than I have room for. On my wife-imposed budget of 1 sheet of plywood a month, I suspect I'll be done sometime in the summer of 2015. When I get that done, I'll do a proper tour with better pictures.

I don't really have an assembly area so I tend to use the top of my table saw for putting things together after I cut them up (hence the cardboard top to stop glue from getting all over the saw).

I constantly have to move things around to use them, so I'm trying to get mobile bases on everything (and why I picked a mobile contractor table saw).

So far I've got:

  • 12" Delta benchtop drill press
  • 10" Jet Bandsaw
  • Rigid R4510 10" Portable Table Saw
  • Rigid 13" Planer
  • Rigid 6" Rabbiting Jointer
  • Kreg K3 Master System
  • Cheapo harbor freight bench sander
  • A mess of cheapo harbor freight clamps that are actually pretty awesome
  • A bunch of crappy Ryobi cordless tools I'm slowly upgrading to better stuff
  • Bosch barrel grip jig saw (I love this thing)
  • Porter Cable circular saw
  • Porter Cable orbital palm sander
  • Shop built router table
  • Shop built air filtration
  • Rockler wall-mount dust collector w/ Dust Right system
  • A mess of hand tools, screw drivers, hand saws, etc.

I assume you like pocket holes!

I'm a big fan myself, and wouldn't have many finished projects if they required traditional joinery.

You've got enough tools to start making stuff. What are you going to do now?

Builder_Bob: Yeah, I picked up a Kreg jig at the local woodworking show a few weeks ago and I love it- I normally stick to home improvement type stuff, but the pocket hole jig has me wanting to make all kinds of stuff.

I think my first project is going to be a kitchen island, which sounds a little insane but I found some plans here that look pretty darn easy and uses the tools I own: http://knockoffwood.blogspot.com/2010/03/plans-michaelas-kitchen-island.html

(yeah, its a completely girly site, but the free plans are awesome)

Scotsman: My wife refuses to even fix my pockets anymore, she says there's not enough time in the day :)
