I have finally finished remodeling my woodshop! And as promised, here is the video of the process. Its about 11 minutes long, but stick it out… some of the best parts are toward the end. I also just updated the photos on my Workshop page.

Awesome video. One of my favorite things about LJ is being able to look at all the shops. I love looking at shops. Especially when there is a video tour. Any way, great edit on the video also. What program do you use to do your video editing? I don’t think I would be able to con one of my friends to come over and help with a job like that. I have you as one of my buddies on LJ and I enjoy your projects and blogs. Take it easy dude. Bob

Cool shop, Blake. I bet it feels terrific to have all that extra room.

Even cooler video, though!

I’m lovin’ it. Gives me inspiration. Is that a powermatic jointer and if so, did you put a converter on it. Love Miles Davis. What was that first song?
