It’s been over a year since I’ve posted a video of my shop, so I thought I’d show you how much the shop has changed in a year. Stay for the end where I show some of the furniture I’ve build over the last year.


Hope you ENJOY!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Lance -

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too.

Great shop video tour.

When are you going to post that sewing cabinet you built. When you do, be sure to tell us where you got the hardware for the sewing machine elevator. Cool project. Easy DT3.

At the end of the this video I posted some video of the Sewing Cabinet, it’s not finished yet, but my wife has been using it for the last 8 months! Once we paint it and it’s completely finished, I’ll do a video just on the sewing cabinet.

Wow Lance! You’ve come a long way. Shop is lookin way good. Full of nice equipment, and a gr8 dust collection system. I really like that desk/cabinet. The chest at the foot of the bed is really nice as well. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Have a safe holiday season.

Lance, enjoyed the video. I’m right there with Tyvekboy, the little bit on the sewing center was like a tease! My wife saw it and really it. We haven’t seen any lifts like that.

Craftalee, I’ve gotten air of interest on the sewing cabinet, so I’ll be doing a video in a couple weeks of a more in depth look at how I built the unit. Thanks for watching!

That link was for the 2×3 1/4×3 containers. I assume the other ones are the 2 3/4×5x3?

Lance, I really like your cabinet set-up on your back wall. I’m looking to do something just like that. How did make your counter tops? Two piece of 3/4” ply trimmed with walnut? How did you attach it too the cabinets? What are you using for cabinet feet/levelers?
