Nice to meet you Shawn, always good to see how other begginers approach their hobby and try to fit an ever increasing tool collection into a constantly shrinking workshop. Thanks Alf

Hey Shawn, enjoyed the video tour of your shop. I think the link to your blog should read

Nice work Shawn. You have done pretty well with that small shop, what size is it? I am moving into a 13.5’x25’ shop, downsizing from a much larger one.

Really nice intro to your video no doubt. I noticed that your audio was slightly off from your video, not a big deal but it may be easy to fix. When I make a video and I plan on splicing the audio and video, I like to clap on video at the begining of a clip so that I can easily line up the audio and video when I am editing.

Keep them coming!

Sailor My Shop is 11’6” X 19’6” and seems to be getting smaller. the audio and video seems to be off because of the codec i rendered out on i will try to fix it for the next one.

Hi Shawn,
Great to see other workshops, that’s fantastic about you quiting smoking and being able to turn it into a bandsaw like that. I look forward to future podcasts.

Great job, I have always wanted to break this barrier but never seem to have the cycles. I work in computers all day long as well and the workshop is my break from the days work. Maybe one day I will take up the challenge, but congrats and look forward to additional content.

Nice job on quiting smoking. Amazing how much money you can save. The band saw was a nice way to treat yourself. Hummm….. maybe i should start smoking and then quit so i can get a new band saw.:-)

Nice job on it Shawn and congrads. on the smoking thing. I m twelve years smoke free now. But the 40 yrs of dust is catching up with me. Has that table saw on the portside created a problem for you yet? Savor the journey. JB

Thanks for all the Great posts. Cabmaker having the tablesaw on the post side is a problem some times. I have the whole thing on casters, so i can wheel it to the center of the shop.
