My “paradise” is my micro-workshop (7x6 ft. total area) cramped in a walk-in closet of my apartment.

My present set of tools is comprised of an Italian-style workbench, a carving bench, a hand power drill, a miter saw, handsaws, a few hand planes, rasps and files, chisels and gouges (almost 300), hammers and mallets, scrapers, pliers, a few clamps, a few measuring instruments, and screwdrivers.

I believe I have been working wood in exactly the same way it was done in the 18th century.
