Hi, I just wanted to post a link to a Youtube video of my wood shop. It’s only half of a two car garage, but I have made it a very functional space. There will be many videos to come, covering many different topics. Thanks for watching and make sure to tell friends about my channel

Great little shop, you are well on your way. I will be waiting to see some of the projects that come out of it.

Nice little shop. Hope you get the otherside from the CAR!! One question being only what you said 13. How long did it take for you to save up for a sawstop? I would love to have one, just can’t afford it.
Thanks for the tour.

Eagle 1 It took me about 2 years to save my money for the Sawstop. My dad (for good reasons) would not let me get any other saw. I had to collect bottles and save all the money that I received. The saw was well worth the wait!

Yes, I forgot to mention about the table saw, what a beauty! I’m sure it was worth the wait. I have a very old Rockwell Beaver TS, it works great for the amount I use it, but it could use a better fence. I know of a couple high school woodworking teachers who have a saw stop in their class and in a couple of occasions, the students were curious if it worked…and it does. Too bad its like a $60-90 replacement, otherwise It would be a neat demonstration to show guests.

You’re getting all the tools needed to do some nice work. My nephew was finally able to get himself a table saw. I told him, “your young, and have a lifetime to need your fingers. Get the sawstop.” Good saw and the added safety that no other saws have might be a blessing some day. Your Dad is a wise man. Good for you!
