First one and it is a bit smaller than what I need. 12 by 16 shed. In it I have a rigid contractor saw, fixed bench, jet dust collection, sommerfeld router table, drill press, mobile stand with dewalt planer, and an old dresser for storage. Ceilings are 12 ft so moving sheets of plywoord are easy as long as I have the floor space

You have a nice shop that is well organized as well. That is a pretty good idea for storing hardware and supplies which have in the picture of your dust collector. This keeps them at hand and readily available while making use of vertical space. And having 12 foot ceilings is a bonus not only for handling plywood but it also works for storing lumber vertically. In my shop I have a lumber rack for storing my wood but since everything is stored in rows it is a challenge to get to a piece of lumber in the back of one of the rows. I have often wished I had the headroom to store it as you do in your shop.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Thanks guys. Splinter man the truck is actually out the front door but just wanted some natural light for the pic. Having the 12ft ceilings does alow me to not cut my lumber when I buy it but wait until I get it home and plan out it’s use.
