Well, it's not quite complete (can it ever be?), but I do have a fairly good set of wood working and metal fabricating tools.

I have my own tools, Miter saw, drills, circular saw, jig saw, sawzall, palm sander. But I borrowed a table saw & router from a buddy. I'll probably get my own but I can't store a table saw. I'm more of a mechanic than a woodworker.

I have too much, according to Phyllis. I just bought a Hobart MIG welder. to go with my old Sears Buzz-Box. I have just about everything I need for wood working. I'm building up my metal shop now.
The only tools I use in Teardrop Building are, my cordless circular saw, cordless drills, THE ROUTER!!! , a R/O Sander a sabersaw, clamps, and measuring/layout tools. I used the mitersaw and a small table saw to build the framework in the walls.

I thought I saw a biscuit joiner in some of you build pics........... :thinking:

On a side note I just picked up a Kreg pocket hole kit, and my power supply/converter (Iota 30 Amp)

Hey I just picked one up too. Way expensive for what it is but it sure is a great tool. You must be building cabinets.
