The Journey It’s been a lot of work to get to this point. Since taking a beating from the recession, I took all of the work I could get to recover over the last couple of years. Between working projects out of my shop, working with another contractor, and Rita opening a cafe in downtown Billings, there was not any free time to get out any blogs let alone video. I have been chomping at the bit to get back to sharing with the woodworking community. Sharing the craft with others has ...
Looking at all the shops of the new LJs (and many of the old ones) got me inspired. So … the camera and I made a trip downstairs. Here’s where it stands. I think I’ve taken tremendous liberties with the notion that every new project demands a new tool. I think I’m working with a ratio of closer to 20-to-1 :-) Thanks for stopping by! What I look like … when I’m not there… The same old grind…. Whenever they mention the town of ...
I know there are a lot of Woodworks fans in the LJ community, so I figured this would be a fun series to post here. Last summer, on our Gadget Station delivery trip, we decided to stop and visit the one and only David Marks. If you’re not familiar with David, he is an incredible woodworker, and used to host a show on HGTV and the DIY Network called Woodworks. But the show has been over for nearly 5 years and David has moved on to bigger and better things. While we were there, he...

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options In the past, I’ve discussed how shop improvements are never done. As our needs and tool preferences change, the shop has to be able to adjust accordingly. If not, you will likely be faced with an inefficient and potentially unsafe work environment. If you can believe it, its already been over a year since Nicole and I moved into our new house. And for those that don’t know, we are indeed still carrying ...
I got interested in woodworking about 2-1/2 years ago and this video shows how my shop grew – taking over the rest of the finished basement…....oops. It’s about 9 minutes long – with Tommy Bolin on the soundtrack. You’ll notice the space filling out – the tools changing – hope you enjoy. Jeff
I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my new shop. As I explain in the video, the sale of our old house fell through and we are now dealing with two mortgages. So I have what I am hoping is a temporary shop setup in my 3-car garage. So here’s the tour! Enjoy.
You might have watched Teenage Wood Workers Shop Tour update and I thought that would be a great idea so I did one my self just really quickly and here is the video for it.
I have been meaning to do a shop tour video for some time, but never quite got around to it. Then I met a young photographer named Michael DeVowe. Michael graciously came over to my house and filmed this for me. I have received “feedback” in the past about too many “um’s and ah’s” in my presentation. After Michael gave me the completed video I went back and did some post editing and cut out most of the um’s and ah’s. Let me know how you ...
A tour of the workshop, shop layout, machine set ups, storage ideas. Ljockers enjoy checking out other shops. Hope you enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GryJsOD8ds
