« Part 43: Video Killed the Blog Star Part 44 of Shop Remodel series no next part

So this remodel has consumed my life for the last four months, some good and some wee, just nutz!!
I have very much enjoyed getting to know all of you who have sat thru my endless dribble and actually read this blog. Your comments have been very inspiring to me. There were some days I felt like just moving on and leaving it alone, but I felt I owed it to you to get this done. I hope that I can use this new amazing space to show you what fun things I am lucky enough to get to work on and help young woodworkers get inspired to try something new and go for it!
It has been a labor of love to build all these pieces and I am going to enjoy every minute I get to go to work and play!
Thanks again to all of you, you made it really fun.
Now get some popcorn and enjoy the show!

Man am I glad you started posting your shizzle on this site so we would all see it.

If I were to build another bench, it would be a split top. So versatile. I recommend a whole ‘nother bench for the moxon. Joinery bench….I love mine.

You’re skill level and design ability leaves most of us in the dust, but we enjoy watching.

Thanks Red. I hope some day we get a chance to hang out and make some shavings. Thanks for putting up with my dribble, glad you liked it. Oh yeah and I am still mad at you for getting those books before me.

Everything came together and it not only looks amazing, it accomplishes exactly what you had intended – a perfect backdrop for your videos, which I must say, are very entertaining. Oh it’s also a neat place to work.

You’re not only a fantastic woodworker, you’re a natural in front of the camera ;) Keep the videos coming!
