This is pics inside and outside of my shop and yard. I am trying to get some pecan logs to spalt and these boards came out very well. I also included my finished cabana.

Looks like you turn out some great boards! We could have a contest for the messiest shop. Mine would be right up there.

You’ve got some nice looking pieces of wood there. Don’t worry about the mess.

If you think your shop is too messy, and I am sure I speak for most of us, we would be glad to come over and
help remove all that clutter caused by the wood. Great projects and looks like a great place to spend your
time. May you and yours enjoy it for a long time.

I love it! It is way better then what I have. :) I really like the cabana- I have one on my list to build one of these days! Nice collection of wood!

Hey, Tiny, I don’t see anything wrong with that – that’s a real nice shop building. What the heck, if you get hot you’ve got a swimming pool right around the corner. Nice setup!!!

Messy is good especially with all that lumber! The cover on the saw mill is a nice touch. Very colorful.
