Sorry to the 267 lumberjocks who already viewed this video you can skip to the next blog post. I somehow created a new account when I signed in to post the video a few days ago. I didn’t realize it until I got the “your first post was approved” message. I was thinking this is not my first post and I followed the link in the e-mail to my new account with just one post. I decided to re-post the video here so my projects are altogether in one account. Ok now let’s ...

It’s a work shop, not just a wood shop. There are things that need doing on a seasonal basis around the home. Getting the winter tires on the car is one of them.

I love my shop. The power tools, the hand tools, the padded luthier workbench, and the integrated dust collection. Especially the dust collection. One point of frustration however, is the relatively limited storage space. And so I’ve had to find spaces in every crevice and corner, and install shelving and hooks around the wood-paneled walls. A particularly frustrating problem was the lack of convenient power and dust collection on my main workbench/tablesaw outfeed table. The rout...
