My Humble Workshop - "The Shed"

I am no movie producer by any means but thought it was time to share my humble work space "The Shed" in a short video tour.
With retirement in sight I started my woodworking hobby in January 2013 with a Contractor Table Saw and a few hand power tools I had accumulated over the years for home handyman work, now 5 years later (and retired) I have gradually amassed a range of machinery and tools to achieve most woodworking projects that I so desire.
I have learned a lot in a reasonably short space of time and continue to learn more each and every day but I can tell you there is no greater satisfaction or feeling than having designed and made something yourself whether for myself, a project for someone, a gift or items for sale.
As we age in years we need something to keep the mind and body active, and woodworking more than provides that for me.

Love this tour of your shed @Wayne. In conjunction with your member profile, I'm sure community members feel like they are getting to know you well. 

 

And a big congrats on your first video. Perhaps you could start recording your projects like @AndrewJones? I'm sure your many fans would find them informative and entertaining. 

 

Thanks for sharing.

Videoing projects is certainly on the cards in the future.

Re: My Humble Workshop - "The Shed"

Now that is a workshop wayne. I love an experienced wood workers work shop.

I am looking at buying a dust extractor for all the sawdust i create with my tools. Would you recommend one i should be looking at. For the time being I'm not going to have it fixed, so i will be moving it from one machine to another. I don't know if i want to make a home made one or go out and purchase one.

Also the CMC machine and the laser cutting, what is a good place to look for one of these

Hi LePallet,
I wouldn't suggest getting anything lower than 2hp, you can get a Carbatec 2hp with 1200cfm for $369 at the moment.

Probably eBay for the CNC and Laser for entry level stuff.
