Fantastic info guys and gals. Very good indeed.

I will try to answer a few questions directed at my initial post .

@Douglas. .. Believe me I am chomping at the bit to get started with some furniture projects.
My shop though is currently getting built. I am able to get in there and do a few things related to
my current project, (building a lean-to for lumber, ladders, sheet-goods.)

This lean-to has taken more time than I originally thought it would. Actually, its taking up all of my available time. But I’m wrapping it up. Just need to finish the doors and trim.

It doesn’t end there. I still have phase II of my expansion to complete. The lean-to was really
not in the immediate plans, but decided to go ahead and build it. I still have recently purchased
tools with no cabinet to put them on. So lots on my plate right now. But I hear ya. The shop is
always in some sort of transition.

@MrRon…. Very good point with planning out the cutlist and maximizing what you get out of the wood.
It gives one a good feeling to save wood and to maximize usage of a sheet of material. Be it ply or whatever.

@HorizonalMike… I love your passion. Some really great execution on those projects. And great workbench by-the-way!

To everyone else. Very good and interesting responses. I plan on using a combination of these great
suggestions. To some extent I already do.

Thanks for all the input.
