Beener, you are sooooooooooo bad.
These are bricks of compressed sawdust and wood chip ( mostly oak) that a local furniture maker sale.
I use them as fire wood.
The name is EcoBricks, you can find then in several parts of the USA
They are not inexpensive but I do a “green” thing and thy are easy to stock

Now this is a shop that any of us would enjoy working in. It looks like you have plenty of room in there, Bert. And with heating and air the only thing that you still need is a bed and then you would never have to leave the shop. :)

Never leaving would require one more thing. Something I’m considering. A bathroom. :D

I have think about a bathroom , the cost would be absolutely prohibitive.
I would have to remove the whole driveway and than do find the main in the street. A friend of mine had to do that recently , it cost her about $11,000.00 without the cost of the driveways.
I have water but no bathroom

Very nice setup Bert. I am just a little bit behind you. I need to do my electrical, blow in insulation, and patch some wall problems and I am done.

What can you tell me about the crank on the tension knob for your band saw?

I bougth the crank on the band saw on Amazon I believe.
It is not inexpensive for what it is but ti works very well and it makes adjusting the blade much easier.

The quick release mechanism is jut too expensive.

Nice wood burner. Mess up on a dimension and then right into the furnace. You could fit a whole table in there all at once. Gone without a trace. That’s efficiency at its best!! (BOY do I need one of those!) Nice shop by the way. Hope that panel lift made it in to the shop.

I’ve seen some fairly inexpensive compostable toliets advertized. Waterless.

Great shop…I’m wiping the drool off my beard looking at the pics; woodstove, great lighting, lots of space, ie. everything my shop isn’t!
