Hi All,

Some of you might have seen my blog post regarding the problems with the tools delivery for my new shop space. Well, I’ve gotton past all that, and am a couple of weeks into the new shop creation.

This video shows my version of Norm’s Workshop Hutch under construction.

Be kind – my first attempt at video….

Nice video…..I just bought the same saw a couple of months ago with the router table add-on. No complaints. I have been adding square footage to my shop for the past two months and I can appreciate the amount of work it takes amongst the chaos and confusion. I am just now beginning to find where I sat things down…....

I think that your video was very nicely done, especially since you are new at it. Keep us posted because I believe that your shop will be very nice. BTW, welcome to Lumberjocks.

I love you’re use of Grizzly green on the cabinets!. For the record, I think it goes well with the Powematic yellow walls.

Good work.

Ha ha -

Thanks a lot Joseph. To me there’s not much point in spending lots of time in a place that’s not pleasant to be in. I appreciate it!

Thanks for the tour . Your video was well done. What types of projects out of wood will you be making in a well set up like yours ?

Hey Thanks Jeff & Jim!

Just finished the 20 drawers with fronts and handles – will be posting some pics shortly.

I really want to try resawing logs into useable lumber – there is an abundance of already dry beetle kill logs nearby. I also want to build some aspen log furniture for the house, and who knows where it will go from there?

The next project though will be a homemade air filter – the dust collector works well, but there was dust everywhere when I was working the drawers, and I spent a lot of time in a dust respirator. Already have the blower, and 5 micron pre-filters with a washable 1 micron secondary filter. Living at 9,000 feet – the air is thin enough without fighting dust…

Thanks again.

Great video. I wish I could get organized enough to make a row of cabinets like that for my garage shop. So much for good intentions! You’re not too far away from where my wife and I stayed for our honeymoon 6 years ago in Manitou Springs (Town & Country cottages). What a nice area to live. Have fun with your new shop!

Have your say...
