Workshop Information

Location
United States
11/3/09: I need to update the workshop page. We sold the house and moved to the Pacific NW a year ago, so doesn't look the same now. I'm currently renting a 16×24 space in Portland, OR. I have also added a few new tools (a router table w/a second router, a 6" jointer and a drum sander. I will take some new pictures and update this ASAP.

I have a limited space to work in, and most of my projects are small. Here's how it looks when things are moved out of the way (I share a basement room with the washer/dryer).



For now, my shop consists of…

Table Saw
Bosch 4000 [2005] This saw has done nothing but exceeded my expectations. After a few 'upgrades', that is. I found that my old IncraJig Pro w/ 28" fence works quite nicely on this saw-MUCH better that the factory unit-and does double-duty on the router table. I also replaced the miter gage with a Jessem MiterExcel-again, MUCH better than the original equipment. I'm acquiring blades as needed. Started with a Forrest DadoKing, a better-than-factory 50T combo blade, and a Delta 80T zero-hook blade for plywood and plastics. Someday I will own a 'real' table saw, but for now…





Drill Press
Rigid DP1550 - 15" floor model [2006] I just finished making an 18"x24" table for my drill press, and am very happy with it. Quicker speed changes would be nice, but…





Planer
Delta 22-580 [2006] What can I say? It does what I need it to do…



Router
Porter Cable 692VS [2007] My newest addition. It has replaced my old Craftsman nicely.

That's pretty much the 'big stuff', again for now…

Beyond that, I have most of 'the usual suspects'. Corded and cordless drills. Jigsaw. Dust collection system (aka shop vac). Misc. hand tools.

Next up?

Your shop description sounds interesting and you appear to have a nice set of "toys" to play with. :) Pictures of your shop would be nice to see as well. I really enjoy visual tours of other shops and find them to be an enjoyable aspect of this site.

thanks for the post.

Thanks for the update. You have a nice shop space in which to work and a nice set of tools. I really like your table saw set-up. The upgrades that you have done improved its operation. Your drill press table, as I said in the original post, is an interesting addition. This improves the available work surface.

Thanks for letting us tour your shop. I really appreciate it.
