Love the accent, great homemade bandsaw, great drill. A bit long winded but loved to see your new shop.

Alex, I’m so happy for you to finally get some space to work. I would get claustrophobic just watching you in that other workspace of yours. I look forward to seeing how you setup this new space. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the tour Alex. This looks a lot more comfortable than the old one but you accomplished a lot in the old space. The bandsaw remains awesome! Good luck to you and always work safe.

Good for you Alex – tons more space than your old shop! It was amazing to see what you were capable of in the first space, so you should be moving mountains in the new space! Good luck and thanks for the update..

nice tour Alex. I see plenty of good stuff comin outta there. I know exactly what you mean about projects getting “set-back” so to speak. Out of my 1000 projects I’ve got in my head, I only have 999 to go….. LOL

Great new workshop and an awesome lathe. You have room for a bigger table saw. Looks like your set for making most any type of project. Look forward to seeing more videos.

It’s always exciting when we get the chance to increase our work space. Especially when we go from a cramped work area to what feels like a warehouse. It will be great to see how the new space develops. Enjoy!

Looking good, I would build a rolling workbench for your planner and jointer.
