I have been meaning to do a shop tour video for some time, but never quite got around to it. Then I met a young photographer named Michael DeVowe. Michael graciously came over to my house and filmed this for me. I have received “feedback” in the past about too many “um’s and ah’s” in my presentation. After Michael gave me the completed video I went back and did some post editing and cut out most of the um’s and ah’s.

Let me know how you like the video.

Thanks,
Charlie

Charlie, you have a very nice shop and it’s a great video. Well done.

Looks like you spent some time on your shop set up Charlie. Nice assortment of tools. I particularly have to comment on the flaps on the miter saw to help catch dust. I have been doing the same thing for close to a year now trying to get a more permanent idea. But for now the tape and cardboard flaps definitely catch a lot more than without.
The video is great and you did good.

Charlie,

Ya did good in editing LOL! Not an “uh” in the whole thing. Looks like you have your shop well laid out and you have everything in it’s place and a place for everything. How many squre ft? and is it seperate from your house. If you get a toilet? You might never leave.. HA,HA.

Nice place to reinvent yourself.

Hey you did a REALLY NICE job on the “Scott Grove” article.

Couldn’t upload my pictures o the wood. Have to check with my wife.

Nice job on the tour Charlie. Great looking shop. Oh what I wouldn’t do to have the room you have.

That’s swell, Charlie. Don’t apologize for ums and ahs. It makes you human. What I find intolerable are the people who sound like they’re reciting a script. Your love of the craft shines in your personality. I’ve watch a number of your videos, and have never been put off by ums or ahs. And, brains farts, like forgetting “strop”, makes you all the more charming. Forget all those nattering nabobs of negativity. What do they know?

Thanks Dave,

I thought about doing something more permanent for the miter saw dust collection, but only for a short while. The cardboard and tape works great and it holds up surprisingly well.

Tom and Mike,

The wide angle lens made my shop look a lot bigger than it really is. That said, I am fortunate to have such a great space to work in. I didn’t mention in the video, but the shop is in the basement of my house. It is about 21’x22’, but I lose about 18 sq. feet because the footprint of the utility room encroaches into the footprint of the shop. One other thing that I didn’t mention is that I have heated floors in my basement. That is soooo nice!

Thanks Mark,

I sometimes wonder where the line is between being genuine and being doofy. I appreciate the feedback!

Being in front of a camera makes some of us self conscious? After seeing my self now I say “who’s that old guy?” Mark is right and you gotta be Charlie. Some folks do a great job of telling a story of the build with segments lke Mark was looking for (sped up) and others like Tommy Mack talk really fast…LOL!

I think approaching you videos like you did your Scott Grove articles , telling a story, or a structured lesson plan. Will help keep you focused. I tend to ramble, and edit later.

Nice shop Charlie and the video was fine. I’m pretty sure you’re more of a woodworker than an actor anyway. I am more put off by the Youtubers that edit their videos so much that there are no mistakes in them. I’ve been around a lot of woodworkers and hearing a “crap’ or “Damn” is nothing uncommon. Greta job, like to see more.

Thanks Mike!

I’m glad you liked the video. I am planning to do a series of interviews and shop tours with various different woodworkers. I have a few of them in the queue already, but they are still in the form of raw footage. I would love to know your opinion If you get the chance to watch any of them. I really appreciate the feedback!

Charlie,

Since you are a Youtuber I subscribe to your tour has come up on my smart tv quite often. More than a thousand views? Pretty good. Hope you had a good Bird Day( Thanksgiving).
