Great music. Sweet joiner..really nice. Planer, shaper, dual drum sander, beautiful table saw(!!!)...man I am envious! By that cabinet door, it looks like you make some real nice cabinets. Also looks like you can make anything you’d like to with the other tools shown. Bet that electric fork lift really helps moving things around. Great job on the tour!

Now get back to work!

Certainly the best job of editing I’ve seen! Great job showing us around. You seem quite comfortable in front of the camera.

Words escape me. I’m with you Bob. I look at this and then mine and just chuckle. Great tour and video. Like the sticker says, Life is Good. Sorry to hear about the thieves you’ve had to deal with. Glad you caught ‘em.

Thanks guys

I really enjoyed making this video, It was fun. My friend Chris filmed it. Now I owe him a Mahogany screen door and my pinkie toe. I’m glad we did this because I have immediately gone on a diet and back to exercise. I think the camera added 40 lbs to me. I have enjoyed all of the shop tours thus far, because I can always pick up ideas from other shops. I love woodworking and meeting others who love it as well. I’m really happy I stumbled upon these websites.

Thanks
Brandon

This is like a Discovery Channel pilot, “Monster Woodshop!” Nice to see another Festoolian.

Brandon -

This is the most awesome video – I throughly enjoyed stepping into your shop. Cool music, excellent editing and most excellent tools. As soon as my wife gets home I am showing her this video. I am absolutely sure I need that Hitatchi Resaw machine! I also want 3-phase power, your awesome Festool set-up and a 14” jointer – WOW that is very cool. I don’t want to know what happend to the thieves that got caught!

Thank you!

I agree every shop needs a HItachi Resaw, it is the badest machine on the planet. Sweet tour man, we all need to step our game up after watching that.

That was the most entertaining, informative, cool shop tour I have seen. It is so easy to connect with you when U gave the tour. Great job. You have the ability to do more than build…like teach, entertain….

Again- great job!
