The "Shed" #3: Inner Framing and Insulation Thoughts

11-11-2014 06:49 AM by Ty Sullivan | 4 comments »

This last weekend did not yield an overly fruitful progression on the microshop as the house soaked up most of my attention. I was able to start a portion of the inner framing to prep the walls for insulation and electrical placements.

The "Shed" #2: Dirtwork....augh.

10-26-2014 04:39 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

After a few weeks of essentially doing nothing but research (including bugging my master electrician father inlaw) about how to NOT metaphorically shoot myself in the foot I finally broke ground on the electrical supply to the new shed. Graciously my father offered his tiller and his own back to help me get the trench dug and the 40 feet of main line put into it’s permanent location in just under four hours…no idea how long it would have taken without the now 24 year old tiller t...

The "Shed" #1: It begins...

10-15-2014 02:25 AM by Ty Sullivan | 2 comments »

I’ve had the new workspace in place for two weeks now and have yet to find the time or gusto to start in on its transformation. Whether the rain or my daughter’s birthday preparations are the cause of my lack of enthusiasm I do not truly know but I am spending this time planning and researching for my inevitable journey into a “microshop”. Yep, that’s right. For those in the know you probably did that face that accompanies a sincere feeling of empathy for tha...

Shop Upgrade - 2014 #1: Extreme Makeover - Shop Edition

06-12-2014 07:24 AM by scoobydooo9r | 3 comments »

Well, just about a week or two after I finally got around to shooting a shop tour video, I decided to finally purchase a drum sander which forced me to rearrange the shop. Of course, since I knew that changes were coming, I also decided it was as good a time as any to really take a look at the shop and fix the nagging problems that I encounter here and there. So, here’s a short list of things that will be upgraded: 1. Dust Collection 2. Shop Layout 3. Lighting 4. Too...

Intro & Shop Tour

03-15-2014 11:56 AM by iamcliff | 6 comments »

I have posted 8 videos on YouTube thus far and have never introduced myself. I enjoy watching other woodworkers introduction and shop tour videos, so I thought I might as well do one and get it over with. I give a few facts about myself in my home page here on Lumberjocks, but I go into a little more depth in the video. Watch the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZIV_OyTaCo
