Now, how strange it is to be all alone in your workshop, nobody around, just you, your tools and your video camera and still being nervous. Knowing that you are going to share that video with the world makes you feel watched and although you can do it over and over again until you got it right, still your feeling embarrassed while making mistakes. Maybe that insecurity will become less overtime….

I didn’t withhold me from making the second video on the 4 year long journey of restoring a 200 year old ruin in the rural heart of Portugal and rebuilding it into a woodwork shop though.

First and most important tool in the workshop; a Smart TV! (it seems most woodwork video producers on YouTube have one in their shop, so we wanted one to).

I love your homemade ‘fake’ hinges and the rest of your work on the shop too.
