Hey everybody! My name is frank and I am a hobby craftsman from germany. I already talked about the build of my DIY table saw in my blog. In my youtube channel you can find the video for this build. If you are interested, just click here!But as I completed my table saw, I soon realized that I have to work on the dust extraction. After a lot of setbacks I figured out a very effective solution. The main problem was still being able to reach the saw (for the settings). So I made four removabl...
So I have been working on the ground, in the dirt for the last 15 years, just like a washer woman, but now, thanks to a couple, three-four intrepid amish carpenters, I will be working with on a cement slab with a roof over my head. Twenty foot by thirty foot sounds like such a lavish and well proportioned kingdom to me.
This video is the the first of a series of videos on my YouTube channel Avys Designs of my Workshop Tour. Please check it out!
As a fairly new member, joining about 12 months ago, I have only posted some of the pictures below at the “My Shop” area. After years of lurking at LumberJocks, and drooling over other guys shops, I decided to upload my shop build out. With little to no experience at blogging what a better place to start…right?!? So beer with me (The past 12 months of building has definitely increased my consumption) I am almost complete with the first phase of the build, and finally have so...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #4: After (and despite) agonizing injury, finally getting back to work!
Well! It has been almost two weeks since I last updated this blog… I don’t typically slack like this, but I had to put the garage cleaning (and work in general) on hold. So… after a visit to the ER, Xrays, an MRI, and several mind-numbing appointments with orthopedic specialists and a neurosurgeon, it turns out I have degenerative disc disease in my spine (pretty common occurrence) as well as bulging discs in my lumbar region… Most pointedly, my L4/L5 discs between...
So, after doing woodworking for 15+ years as a career, I have come to a midlife crisis as it may seem. I absolutely cannot find motivation to get in the garage and do what I love most. It saddens me deeply as it seems that my creativity has left every vein in my body and I cannot find the motivation to do much of anything these days. I don’t know if it has anything to do with being laid off a couple times in my work career, or what but motivation is no where to be found. I try and t...
I would like to thank everyone for reading along as I spoil myself with this amazing remodel. It is such a huge difference for me, I am not sure it will really sink in until I have made three or four projects there. It has been a pleasure to have you all follow along and cheer me on. You have been an amazing bunch of people to chat with and get to know. So thanks a million.This will be my last blog for some time as I need to concentrate on orders and getting my world put back together. I have...
