10’x12’, but plenty roomy for me and my hand tools. I do love the 9’ long north facing windows and the amount of light they let in.

Congrats on the build. I see you’ve already squeezed a massive workbench in there too. Are you going to insulate it any?

Holy Crap! I think I see a burl! Oh, excellent shop. I like the layout. You can’t have too much natural light.

Nice big windows for natural light at your bench. You could put your shavings box outside under one of the windows to save space.

JustJoe, I’m planning on insulating it, but I may wait and see how bad the summer heat gets this year first.
farmerdude, It’s a cherry burl I found but have no idea what to do with. I don’t have a lathe, so no bowls.

Looks very functional and minimalistic. If I didn’t use power tools, I’d probably want something just like this.
May the Schwarz be with you. Though it looks like it already is!

My lathe is not much, but I still have a thing when it comes to burls. A hunk of the last cherry burl became a nice spokeshave. I carefully sawed it up into small boards with my bandsaw. I’m sure you’ll come up with something. Good luck.
