A brief look at my humble Montana workshop, from my morning “commute” to the inside of the shop, including the never-ending-project: The Workshop Expansion. I hope you enjoy this peek at where I enjoy spending so much time.

Great shop, great view, great “commute”. I think we may have a different definition of “humble”.(: One helluva of a place you have there. Thanks for posting!

Very nice setup. I like the nature walk to the shop. About as pleasant a woodworking experience as you can get. Have to agree with Brad though. If your shop is humble, mine would be a few steps below commonplace ;)

Thanks for the tour,

David

I must say that it amazed me how “humble” the really is. It is set up to build your particular style of projects and really there is no need for anything else.

With my business generating projects that range from remodel to fine woodworking, it seems my tool needs are endless.

It is truly a dream shop considering location and the projects that you get to make on a daily basis.

Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful place I like the green belt around the shop and the bright skyline. When I feel like having morning walk, I would replay the video and I’m surely be there. I will visit you there after the walk for a cup of coffee., ha ha ha..! Very nice shop indeed. Million thanks for the video.
All the best to you, Scott!

Great shop Scott. I know you must look forward every day to going into the shop and having fun. Your land is great also. it is good to be able to work any hour of the day and know you are not disturbing anyone with the music of woodworking tools (with the possible exception of a few critters)...
Nice to have breathing room. I moved to the country several years ago and built my barn shop and words cannot explain how much I enjoy my shop/location.

Hey not too shabby of a workshop not to mention the commute. My commute is 20ft downstairs to the basement and the wood workshop is only 30×20 ft. I think yours is larger than my house! I’m sure it will be even more wonderful when you get everything finished. There’s always another chore or add on isn’t there?!

I was looking for the Moose. Aren’t you supposed to have the token wandering moose in the front yard (like the pink flamingo in Florida)? I like the short legged wolf and I think the critter you call “Lucky” is a deer. Can’t tell from the brown flash of legs that ran by!

Very nice tour and I love your work! Glad to see you’re living a good life and creating wonderful things.

Hey good way to make us wanna be country boys jealous. I’m starting to miss the mountains now. Nice shop, nice tools, nice work. I give you a 5, because of a 5 point deduction for it not being my shop.

Very nice shop. You are very blessed to be in such a beautiful part of the country. I also like your chairs, I hope someday to have the skills to make one myself. Thanks for your great videos.
