Okay, as some of you may know I'm vacating my office by the Tweed River due to the sudden onset of full time employment and redundancy of the need for a full office. I'll be moving a fair whack of stuff into storage as my home doesn't have enogh space for all my stuff. The Pippin will live in the carport for a while. We have a small shed which has a fair bit of gardening equipment in it already, but I WILL be making room for my tools and my bodgy workbench. To upshot is that I lose the shed at the office.
To remedy this drastic situation I will have a steady income and a site where I hope to build a new and customised shed/workshop equiped with all the right mod-cons for knocking out the odd wooden boat. To this end I ask you all to put on your thinking caps and suggest tools that will be needed and construction techniques that will be economical but also provide for the practical needs of boatbuilding as well as be in keeping with the bucholic character of our land (pictures coming).
The tools I already have include a swivelling metal work vice, power planer, variable speed disk sander/polisher/grinder, belt sander, detail sander, orbital sander, drill, egg beater drill, two brace and bits, hand panel saw, hack saw, a fair few clamps (springs and Fs, but will always get more), jig-saw, stanley #4 plane, low angle block plane, draw knife, spoke shave, circular saw, heat gun, a few cheap scrapers, claw hammer, small "tap tap" hammer, screw drivers including my multi-bit stanley ratchet, bevel gauge, 4 work horses, flat and round rasp, course file, course rat's tail file and a couple of soft sanding blocks. There may be a cople of other things I've left out but this is pretty complete.
Obviously I will want a concrete floor to the shed and obvious things include a table saw, thicknesser and dust extractor.
I want peoples' recommendations for tools and which brands and models will be suitable for my initial purposes (vessels up to 30') as well as roof spans for a skillion roof that will span about 8 to 10 metres. I will try and get as much weatherboard to clad the outside with along witha few old timber windows so the shed will look as if it's been in-situ for as long as the house has and suit the character of the place.
Roofing options I've already thouht about include sips-panels, normal roofing iron/colourbond with insulation, but I'm in no way set upon any single solution other than using a skillion.
