My home workshop wish list

Although I like to think that I do pretty well in my little garage workshop, there are a few things I’d love to acquire. Like every Festool ever. My small power tools are all Ryobi and I love them! Highly recommend them, especially their One Plus cordless tools. (no, they don’t sponsor me, I just really like them). Check out Ryobi Nation. It’s a great site for DIYers. I am in a contest with the Electrician down the street to see who can acquire all these tools the fastest. There are even more things I’d like to upgrade. I keep a running wish list in my head so I thought I might just share it here. There may be a few things you want to add to your shop as well. (note: the links are affiliate, they support this site). A girl can dream, right? I’ll keep adding to the list from time to time, and when I do get a tool or two, I’ll let you know what I think of it.

A portable SawStop tablesaw – I love having my fingers just where they are.  Although I consider myself very careful, extra safety is always better.



Oscillating Spindle Sander – How much does everyone just hate sanding? I kinda like it actually. It’s meditative. But it hard to get things done and good sanding machines sure do help. This Grizzly Benchtop sander will certainly look nice in my shop.

Right now I don’t have a good way to manage dust. I wear a mask all the time. This is not a complete solution but probably good enough for the garage shop. The big garage door, fresh air and a mask would still be needed most of the time, but clean up would be easier.
