>I've just uploaded our three newest Shop Shots. Two of the three are first-time submitters to Shop Shots. We welcome them and encourage others to do the same. Have a jig you've cobbled up to make a process in your shop smoother, a method of work that improves your production or accuracy, a shop layout that streamlines the workflow, or a finished project you'd like to share? Send us some pictures and a description of them and let us see what you've been up to in your shop.

Thanks to these talented folks for the latest submissions:

Brian McKinney - Shot #613 - considers himself a beginning woodworker. In a effort to save a little money, part of the deal with his wife for paying a landscaper to install a new patio was for him to build some new patio furniture. Although a large undertaking, Brian used every spare minute to complete the Adirondack loveseats. His friends still can't believe he made them. Nice work, Brian!

Paul DeWitt - Shot #614 - says this was the first project that he planned and drew using Turbo CAD Learning Edition, which he heard about here on WoodCentral. Paul preferred using hand tools to prepare the boards for the top of his cherry dining table. Have a look at the beautiful job he did.

Jim Kyle - Shot #615 - and a group of dedicated volunteers at Millbrook Village recently completed a huge project. At the heart of it is a 1920's American Sawmill, manufactured in Hackettstown, New Jersey. In the end, everyone came away with a better understanding of 18th and 19th century timber frame construction.
