« Part 5: Time to heat the shop already? + some light humor Part 6 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 7: Who said Stumpy isn't very sharp? »

If you haven’t seen the show yet, this may be the episode to start with. It’s fast moving, introduces a great project, and features the twisted sense of humor that makes Stumpy Nubs videos unique.

This week the workshop finds itself designing a clamp rack that will hold 48 clamps in just 3X2’ of wall space.

Then Stumpy reviews “stretchy tape” (whatever that is…)

And finally (my favorite part) Stumpy tries to figure out how to get out of trouble with the wife over buying an expensive new tool. (Funny stuff)

Hey Stumpy!

Thank you ever so much for that fantastic Nail Tip!
Now, I will have to spend a lot of time sorting my nails as to what side the house they go on!
What a great way to spend your time on when snuggled in front of a nice warm fire!

Thank you again! Great Tip!

The rest of the Video was good too…

Merry Christmas
Happy New Years!

Another great one Stumpy. They are rolling right along. And some good tips to. I think I’ll pass on the gift for the wife. She might want to dovetail my forehead;)

Thanks, Stumpy!

A wise old woodworker (probably the same guy you were listening to) once told me “You CAN’T HAVE too many clamps.” Never was sure if he was telling me to get more or give some away.

I’ll bet you tool-buying strategy doesn’t work as well as mine. Let’s say there is a tool I want that costs $300. I don’t even mention it to my wife. I just go to the bank, withdraw $600, then give her $300 and tell her to go buy something for herself because she deserves it. The new tool NEVER get’s noticed.

Next time you tip a Vernors, remember me … we can’t get the good stuff over here in Cheesehead land.

Hey Stumpy. I usually buy it then put it under the bench or shelf. Then when it gets a lot of dust on it. I find a excuse for her to help me out in the shop. When she comes out I make sure I am pulling out the new toy. When she asks when did you get that. I tell her I bought that a long time ago look at all the dust on it.

At least it works for me.

I think this is your best video yet! Had me grinning and chuckling all the way through. Nice clamp rack design – I like the layered idea.

I agree with sras, this is definitely the best yet and was really good to watch. The only “fault” I can give it is with the sound, different segments have different sound levels, which if addressed, would make this offering a superb piece of work.
You have improved everything; a relaxed and very informative Stumpy that is sure to please people ….. you got it made, son.

Another good one and better each time. Very nice design on the clamp rack. I’ll need to get more clamps to fill it. Your videos remind me of the Red Green show. He always used duct tape though so you one up’d him. :))
