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 ...
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 ...
Here is a quick shop tour video for everyone. Enjoy! Thanks for watching!
Here it is, The first of my shop tour series. In this video I look at the current setup of my workshop and go into details about my machines, I talk about what I like, don’t like and everything in-between.I then go onto talk about what the shop will eventually turn into once I have finished my workshop build. Video Available at my Website http://jordswoodshop.com/2011/11/announcement-shop-tour-video-underway/ Or at youtube directly http://youtu.be/WhmYlT2kXMA Or alternativel...
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
It’s in 2 parts, and I am no videographer, the audio stinks, but here it is in all it’s semi glory… Part 1 of my video shop tour. Part 2 of my video shop tour.
Got things cleaned up after making the bathroom cabinet and vanity. Also got a new table saw fence. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DxkZFLCoiA
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...
I had a crazy/busy weekend (again!) I had hoped to have some time to paint, but it just wasn't in the cards for me yet. That doesn't mean that I didn't have a productive couple of days. It was quite the opposite. Many of you who have followed me regularly here on the blog may have noticed that I am not posting as much. It isn't because I am not working as much or doing as much creating, but it is more because the 'production' side of my business has really ...
