I’m very new to lumberjocks and fairly new to woodworking. I intend this blog series to show how I got started and the first projects I took on, which were all about setting up my workshop. Then I hope to update the series each time I update the workshop, which as we all know is a never ending project.
I’ll start with a little history, my wife and I converted a van into a campervan. We loved the project and I got bitten by the woodwork bug whilst building the cabinets for it. Whilst we did this project we stuck a go pro on a tripod and took time lapse footage of the work, which we stuck on YouTube. It turns out people will watch anything on YouTube because even our poor quality time lapse videos have gotten some views.
Anyway that has led me to film a few of my early projects including the dismantling and moving of a log cabin to our new house. So in this first post I give you two videos one of taking the cabin down and the other of rebuilding it at our new house. I realise these aren’t specifically woodwork projects, but they do set the scene for further projects.
For those that are interested this is a 12’ x 10’ log cabin with a notch for the door way that is roughly 6’ x 3’. For those who like to know these things that means I’m working in roughly a 100 square foot workshop! This definitely leads to some interesting challenges. I have no doubt that this will change in the future, but for now I’m grateful that We have a space that we can do something we love i
