Router: 1 1/2 to 2 HP find a good used one, unless it's been dropped and kicked around a lot a good router lasts a long time, two things to look for first brushes that can still be bought and easily changed and two both a 1/4 and 1/2 inch Collete. a router that uses only a 1/4 Collete is of very limited use. if you can a new router of good quality can be bought for $100.00 and you really don't need a plunge router ( but they are nice ).
To start your proposed shelter box first you must consider size. The size of the usual Shelter boxes are about 23.7 inches wide by 33.2 inches long and 22.4 inches deep. You would want to investigate purchasing a large plastic tote of approximately the same dimensions. Choose one of the black or dark green colors in order to easily identify and locate it in emergencies.
Any kind of art can get messy. You will want to create a dedicated work space for yourself where it doesn't matter if you get colors on something. You will need ventilation so that you do not inhale any dust. You can achieve this by working outdoors. If this is not possible, choose a space with an open wall like a garage, or work in front of an open window with fans to blow the air away from you. It's possible to buy or build a spray booth to isolate any over spray and remove it.
Unfortunately, the finished workbench doesn't fold completely flat. But the workbench does function as I desired: it's a sturdy, portable workbench that I can easily carry around the house or out into the back yard to exercise my woodworking prowess. Adding a few extra speed clamps and a portable carpenter's 6" vise, and I'm good to go (my first project was to make and attach two ¼" wooden facing pieces to that 6" carpenter's vise's metal jaws).

Even though the nay sayers will tell you that building a shed is not a project for the average gal or guy, with a great set of cheap she plans it can be much simpler than assumed by said group of nay sayers.
