One of my first projects in my new woodworking shop was building this roller table for my radial arm saw. The rollers are from an IBM 3800 laser printer which were periodically replaced during routine maintenance.
I built this shop work bench using 2x4 and 2x8 lumber left over from the home construction. The legs are laminated 2x4s with mortises for 2x4 cross braces. The top is from 2x8s that I ripped and glued together in butcher-block fashion. I put 4 all-thread rods through the top for additional strength.

I bought this small jointer at a garage sale for $50. It had a brand new motor, but the platform was bad. I built a new one using scrap plywood.
Another project built of left-over cabinet grade plywood from the home construction. This cabinet provides a work surface for projects and houses some of my power tools. It is also used as a base for my chop saw which is at the same height as the roller table I built for the radial arm saw.

This cabinet holds bits and attachments for my drill presses.
My Craftsman band saw was given to me by a friend. It needed a motor, stand and a little TLC to get it working, but it works pretty well now.

I built this parts storage cabinet several years ago in a woodworking course I took at the local vocational shop. It has 30 small drawers which are each individually partitionable and has 6 wide drawers at the bottom. It is used for storage for nuts, bolts, nails, screws and nearly anything else that doesn't have a home. There is a hierarchical diagram that shows what each bin contains.
I found this air compressor on sale at a local Lowe's and just couldn't resist. I ran black pipe from the compressor and the full length of the shop. There are air connectors on each wall of the shop.

My table saw is a 10" Ryobi BT-3000. I have built several jigs and accessories for the saw and I am satisfied with its performance for the price.
One of my more recent additions to the wood shop was this Rigid thickness planer. I'm very satisfied with the performance so far.

My radial arm saw is a Craftsman 10" that I bought several years ago.
