no previous part Part 1 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 2: You NEED this mini-cabinet maker's bench! (Part 2) »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way.

Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works…

The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in every week to see what’s going on. Projects are always in progress, but not really a “start to finish, one project per episode” kind of thing like most other podcasts. Each episode will flow into the next. For example, the first episode (split into four segments) documents all of the chaos going on in the shop as a couple of important projects move from design through completion. It’s hard to describe, but after the first couple episodes I think everyone will get a good feel for the uniqueness of our format.

It’s also a lot shorter. But, since we didn’t want to cut down on the content of each episode, we just split the episode up into four weekly parts. This week is Episode 1, part one, and next week is part 2, and so on. This will allow us to keep the special segments we wanted, like tool reviews, shop tours, a bit of comedy, and a lot more.

So, watch the first episode, tell me what you think…

QUICK RUNDOWN OF EPISODE 1 PART 1: Most of the time is spent on a unique mini traditional woodworking bench for a small shop. In the meantime, Stumpy begins work on his design for the Charles Neil Throwdown.

(Part 2 is already finished, so this should begin a series of regular, weekly releases instead of big gaps between parts)

Stumpy, that was bloody good, my son. Loved it, but please can you fix the audio? It comes and goes, and I’m not good at lip reading matey. Got a boom mic anywhere?

Hmmmm, I’m surprised you had audio problems. It seems fine on my end. There is a different audio level for the “interview” scenes in the chair which are done in the shop, and the narration, which is recorded in the little studio I have here. I have an external mic clipped to my shirt in some of the scenes, but I really want there to be a different feel between those two types of scenes. I even considered getting someone else to do the narration so the voice would be different, but this is a low budget affair.

Anyway, I’ll see what I can do, and I’m glad you liked it!

Stumpy Nubs, you are a man after me own heart and I love you.

Not to leave Charles out – I can honestly say that I love him as well.

Both of you, please keep on keeping on because you both give me joy. Joy in this world is hard to come by. God bless the both of you.

That was… touching. Sounds like you’re having a bit of Veterans Day cheer, Helluva! Well, I…. love you too. As much as a man can love another man without wearing high heels.

Stumpy, high heels are most impractical for shop foot wear. The work table will always be 4” too short if you wear high heels in the shop. Furthermore, they have absolutely no traction and they are bad for the the arches of the feet. I will have to admit that they do look nice on some people especially if they have good legs without hair. Of course these are the ones that we can’t live with or live without so high heels will always have their place. I spend the majority of the time in the dog house but I will never go to the dog house because I am in opposition to high hills, high heals, or high heels either. There are so many other more worthy battles to be fought. What difference is it anyways? We always will loose more battles than we win. It’s better to confuse them and always play the winner or better yet to pretend that you can’t hear what they say because of your many long years at being companion to loud machinery which makes much noise but never talk back.

Stumpy—- Thanks! Glad that router bit didn’t tag you … might have put a real crimp in production.

Production (technical) values were much better … keep’em coming.

My father in law was cremated. I think it may be a good idea to put my “father-in-law and box together.”

Too soon?....

I almost edited myself and wasn’t going to say anything about the box but after reading many of your post I figured you not only would take offense but would take as intended.

As someone I knew ages ago was fond of saying … There is nothing that can’t be laughed at or joked about, it’s just a matter of timing. Sometimes it’s too soon sometimes not soon enough.
