This week it’s a return to Mot’s shop. Sure we visited Mot in the early days, before things got more organized. But that was a social call, and this is, after all the more serious matter of an inspection. MsDebbieP likes the ambient dust filtration, the tight organization and the lighting. I was excited by the Cat5 cabling and shopcam. For a small shop, there are all the necessary tools and some very high-tech toys. Mot has been experimenting with a lathe instruction ser...
This week Ms. Debbie P visits the shop of Lee A. Jesberger Lee is a professional woodworker, inventor, entrepreneur, and a model Lumberjock. He has prepared several blog series including some very detailed entries on vacuum clamping, veneering, jigs and fixtures and tool-making. He maintains a website with a vast array of tutorials :http://www.prowoodworkingtips.com/ Here Deb takes the readings on a positioning jig to hold work steady during carving. That is one swell post he is working...
This week we visit the shop and garden of Bob Babcock, the gentleman tree-farmer and Lumberjock of Carver, Mass. Deb is checking the posts of Bob’s Lyptus and cedar gate. Say, look at that new pen there. I think it looks so natural with the clipboard. We start outside, because friends, that piece of Carver, Massachusetts is Bob’s workshop. Tons of garden projects, excellent landscaping with his carpentered focal points on all sides. Did Bob help pick the summer challenge? I...
We cross the pond to Broadstone, Dorset, UK, and the shop of Phillip Edwards. Deb is again heartened by the presence of a fire-extinguisher, great organization and good lighting. I am completely agog in the presence of Phil’s collection of wooden-bodied and moulding planes designed and built with his own hands (in addition to the one received from the hands of Krenov). Phil is no stranger to Photoshop himself, and has a justly famous website:http://www.philsville.co.uk/ The cognoscen...

Today I drove down and paid Obi a visit. I got to tour his shop and get caught up on his current projects. I got to see his Thorensen table and a number of other projects that were in progress. It was a great time. I had a request from David to take a lot of pictures and I know that a number of you have been bugging him for some pictures. He is currently building loft in his shop and is in the process of making floor joices. This is what can be seen sticking out of his shop door. ...
I don’t own a camera so a neighbor volunteered to film my shop. Its a bit unique so enjoy.I hope it even worked since we don’t know what we are doing. :-) Always willing to learn new things! Watch the Video
Recently H&J Kerkhof have moved to a larger facility to continue manufacturing furniture components for the Vancouver area. This is a video that shows the new space and a short video about the old shop and how the move to the new shop happened. Submitted for the shop tour challange. Watch the Video
Here is TheAggie’s shop video for the Challenge 02 contest. I just hit the highlights of my shop, not all the little nuts and bolts laying around.
Our buddy Darryl says he has the Woodworking Dungeon – perhaps now he’ll agree that I really do… with spiders and miles of cobwebs barely overhead for a nice festive touch. One upshot to this contest was forcing myself to clean up the space a bit (Ignore all the dust and spiderwebs. I do). I also found 3 six-in-one screwdrivers that were slated to have their handles replaced with new new wooden ones… That puts versions 4-6 on the to do list, without spening any $$...
