Default new member | decisions... decisions... NEED HELP

Im new to this forum and need help deciding what tools to get and what to build in my new woodshop.

So I'm getting a pile of cash as a signing bonus (thank you 3d printers) and what better thing to do, then to build a new garage and woodshop onto my existing garage and turn my current garage into the game room/bar room

I'm building a two car garage with a 24X12 woodshop inbetween current garage and new one.
WHAT DO I PUT IN IT??!?!?

TOOLS I HAVE:
  • table saw
    mider saw
    jointer
    bench sander
    router w/ table
    scroll saw

TOOLS I (THINK I) NEED TO BUY FIRST:
  • drill press
    lathe
    band saw

I'm just wondering what you guys would do if you had the opportunity to build your dream garage.

welcome aboard....enjoy your new adventure...I'd say it would totally depend on what interests you have with the new shop..what ideas prompted you to build it...tools would depend on things you'd like to do/build...individual ideas, opinions etc for you..would dictated needs and wants for a perfect shop in your minds idea...the perfect shop could be as different as there are types of wood...for different individuals...hand planes could be as important as dust collection, to power tools..etc...to different individuals likes and needs and or wants...enjoy

Welcome aboard.
Garage? I'd make it tall enough to work on vehicles while on a hoist.
Workshop? I'd make it bigger, lots bigger, at least twice as big as I would ever think I needed. Then I'd keep funds in reserve to enlarge it later.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

You seem to be reasonably well equipped at the moment.

Personal opinion, I would buy a band saw in front of a lathe and look at a thickness planer...

You guys can check out my style at ****.com. I plan on separating the woodwroking from graphic design but I don't have a good woodworking domain name yet.
I'm definitely going to get a band saw before any other new tool. As for a surface planer, I don't see as much of a need for that considering I never plane anything my jointer can't handle.
Also the garage will just be for toys and tools. vaulted ceiling would be overkill i think.

Mike I would say that the drill press should be next. A lathe depends on the woodworking you plan to do. Lathes take a fair bit of dedication to learn to use well. The bandsaw can be handy, once again it depends on what you plan to do.

A jointer will flatten sides and edges but can leave you with a wedge shaped board. The thickness planer is for smoothing one side so that it is perfectly parallel with the other face. Neither one replaces the other.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Mike. A shop chip collecter is a must. Makes cleaning much easier.

My profession is to restore old loghouses that is in the classical way. Look at www.tiny-e.fi and (FB) Tiny-e. Restaurointipalvelut for exaples

Yes. I was planning on getting the "dust deputy" cyclone (169.99 version), hook it up to my shopvac, and run 2.5" clear flex hose to most of my tools. I think that's the cheapest most effective way to go. also I'll be building a sanding station out of reused pegboard, which will be running on its own vacum. Anyone know any creative ways to organize the main tools? building them in... etc..
