If you are interested, take a tour of my small shop. This video is not very professional and refers to some Aussie specific stuff which I won’t bother explaining.

Hope you enjoy.

Great Video. Our very own Canuck doing his very own Podcast. How’s it feel to be a star?

Hi Don;
—-so when can we expect to see you on your own weekly show, our Aussie “Woodworking Don with TimberJocks Updates”; from the ‘down and under of Oz land’?

Very good show mate and may the sun continue to shine on all ten of your fingers as you work that wood. What type of ‘splitter’ is that on your table saw?

Yes Don, 3 meters x 10 meters is easier then 9’-10’’ x 32’-9’’, see what hanging around you is doing to my way of thinking.

Have a very good day!!!
Godspeed,
Frank

So, I’m stubborn. I was trying to figure out how big the shop was in feet.
And that is a great idea Frank, he can probably get funding from Canada ay? (I hear he’s rich… he has a $75,000.00 Colonial Hutch)

A very impressive video. It was nice to hear your voice also, I expected you to have an Aussie accent. I have recently purchased an DVR-Cam. This gave me some ideas of another use for it. I think you’ve introduced a whole new venue for the Lumberpodcastjocks

This IS the New D.I.Y. We’re about to hit the big time, Mates. Sponsors crawling out from underneath the boards, Companies giving us free tools. I guess I’d better get with the program. My camera will only take 7 minutes of video at a time.

7 minutes is plenty of time unless you planning a feature length video like, ”Gone With The Wind”

excellent video.
1) I was thrilled to see your table saw “thingy” in action. I really like that.
2) nice to almost meet you and to see how /where you create all these wonders, and
3) gotta love the Canadian flag hanging there :)

Just saw the video. great shop. Your sliding table for the TS is a really cool jig, I can imagine the uses. I also like what you did with the drill press, very innovative.

Quote Frank: ”What type of ‘splitter’ is that on your table saw?”

This is a fairly standard splitter on Table Saws sold in Australia and Europe. Here’s a close up of the splitter that shows how it’s attached to the table saw. It was supplied with this splitter, or ‘riving knife’.

I like the splitter. BTW, the blade looks a little gummy.

Great video, Don. Keep it up ;) One tip – I recommend you to include screenshot of the video linked to it in your post – or in any other video post in the future.

my two year old daughter came to sit with me while I watched this and here’s what she had to say when you demonstrated the table saw:

“That’s beautiful!”

she was in awe. very cool to get the tour of the shop.

I’ve added a screen shot Martin. Is this what you mean?
