Workshop Information

Country
United States
Ok, got a new house and a new 2-car garage for a workshop! Most of the upgrades I had before we moved. Still have the Craftsman 113.298341 10" TS with an Incra V27 mitre gauge and a Red-Line rip fence. Black&Decker 1/4" router in the table. Porter Cable router handheld. Same general batch of all kinda hand tools on the bench. Belt and disk sander, added a spindle sander, added a Rikon bandsaw, upgraded the drill press with a new table. Upgraded to a SCMS Ridgid 10" on the same mobile stand. Still ShopVac for dust collection but added a separator. Added a drill station from Jay's Creations with some mods for the cordless finish nailer. Lunchbox style Craftsman thickness planer and a jointer too. Now have a lean-to shed outside the garage for material storage. Built that after we moved in. Added a bunch of LED lighting so nice and bright. Also had some new electrical put in for the shop only. Nice. Chalkboard paint on the cabinets for notes, better clamp holders on the wall. Everything will be able to roll to reposition once I get the new assembly and outfeed table built. That's just on sawhorses for now. So LOTS more storage and room to work in the workshop.

How about posting some pictures of your shop when you get the opportunity? Visual tours of other shops are always welcome.

This looks like you have put together a nice shop. It does look like you have quite a bit going on in there but moving the miter saw into the driveway is a good idea to help with space management. I used to do that with my miter and table saws before adding dust collection since I would get yelled at for "tracking sawdust into the house".

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.
