This is the first post to this blog that I have made. That is only becasue I blog at my own personal blog. But I thought it would be cool to enter this challenge.

So here’s my entry to the challenge at hand. This was a blast to make. I thought I would give you all glimspe into what goes on in my normal day while here at school. Hope you all like it.

Nice selection of tools. I just have one suggestion for future videeo makers. Make very slow movements with camera when going from one item to another or pause the camera when changing from one machine to another, instead of the high speed back and forth swinging. This will keep from causing someone with motion sickness from getting sick and the rest of us from getting dizzy. Thanks for the video!

Cool video! Great place to work out…!

How did you get all that equipment up that small elevator? Another question: Is that dust collector for all floors of production?

I agree with Mark, make the movements slower with the video camera…We can enjoy and be more envious of your shop.

Kaleo, Mate, if you don’t watch out, you’re going to become an Aussie. Nice to hear lumber referred to as ‘timber’. Great tour – makes me think about enrolling in the school.

Yeah, I think the same way know Don, it’s timber not lumber. All the equiptment is on the first floor, so none of it had to go upstairs. The dust collection runs only in the first floor also. we have a rule that only hand work can be done at the bench. So any power tools have to be used down stairs. Don, if your ever down here in Tassie over the next few months, I should be here until at least Febuary next year, I’d love to give you a personal tour of the school. That goes for anyone that might be in the neighborhood.

wish I could. I’d love to see not only the shop but more of your projects. But, alas, I have to be content with what you show us online.
