Oldtool – more like 50 times! all those set ups had to be moved.. what? maybe an inch? Wow….that was so cool!

And yes, Thomas I agree, Nice shop! I want that spindle sander…and that monster 15” disc sander!

and that jointer, nice drill press

The band saw had a huge table and capacity!

I need a bigger shop.

The lawn chair design is really neat. I’m surprised the builder didn’t make the arms arched like an Adirondack chair. It would probably be more comfortable and look more like the rest of the design. I would want to add a flat piece on top for an arm rest. still…very nice.

Great video and a very cool looking chair. I agree with Mark; I would have made the arms arched to better match the design. He has several videos on his website. All of them are equally captivating and entertaining.

I must be buying the wrong wood; his wood builds itself when he’s not it the shop. When I come back to my shop in the morning I just find my same half-finished projects.
