my shop is about 20×24, After browsing threw the jigs projects I can see that I’m going to be building a few jigs in the next few weeks. Still have a few issues with the dust system but its coming along. The little down draft table is made out of and old exhaust fan I found, works great but still trying to find a vacuum cleaner bag that will fit it ( the pillow case works not to bad ) on the other side of the shop is the chop saw and a radial arm saw and all the clamps.
Everything works good but a few upgrades would be nice. A new router table and a bigger band saw for re-sawing, maybe next year.
All the wood behind the dust system is trim ends from the local saw mill, we use them for fire wood and what ever project we are working on. They make great pieces for trying out a cut if your not to sure.
Between me and my dad we put out close to 40-50 projects in a winter, mostly small projects like small boxes 3-d cut outs of animals picture frames than sort of thing, nothing bigger than a toy box but you never know what next week will bring.

If you have any questions let me know

Kodiak, this is a pretty nice looking shop that you two have. It does look like you have a lot going on in there and I can see that you have managed the trim end storage pretty well. It looks like you are fairly well stocked with wood. You also have some nice tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

shop/ kiln? Is it really 80 degrees in there? Nice shop, looks like you have a pretty good stash of lumber too.
