Try turning some pens. A small lathe is pretty cheap and they make great gifts. Quick projects and pretty fullfilling.
My shop is about the same size as yours. 12×20 – sometimes it’s a pain to do bigger jobs (I can’t fit a 4×8 sheet into the basement), but I really enjoy it, so I make it work. Roller bases on everything is the way to go to make it easier. Also a vac system will really help. I find that I get kind of discouraged when the dust builds up on everything. A clean shop is easier to work in.
