Delta Unisaw with 52 inch rip and lots of out feed table. Storage cabinets for accessories and hardware underneath.
My work shop is the lower level of our house. Access is only from the exterior and since we live in Grenada we do not have any heating/cooling systems to be troubled by sawdust. The shop is 1500 sq. ft. I have a detached finishing room that is 250 sq. ft. so that allows me to keeping working while items dry. The shop has 220/110 electric service throughout. The central dust control keeps the shop clean. As well as some interior lumber storage I have outdoor storage where I currenly have about 3000 board feet of West Indian mahogany and 1000 board feet of local white cedar air drying. Generally I let the lumber dry for at least a year before I work with it. I use a moisture meter to monitor it all. I have a shop built router table with a 3 1/4 PC router, a midi Jet lath, Delta 15 inch planner, Delta 6 inch jointer, and a shop built router milling machine (ShopNotes magazine) which has proved to be very handy for all sorts of turning tasks. My wife does stained glass work and she has a 250 sq. ft. studio for that We frequently incorporate leaded glass or stained glass work into some of our furniture pieces. www.grenadabarefootwoodworker.com

Yes the sander is a woodmaster, 5 hp motor and 26 inches wide. I highly recommend them. Easy to change grits, strong and well built. Expensive but worth every penny, one of my best investments. You will not be disappointed.
