At the beginning of the month, on a whim, I added my shop tour video to the shop gallery on Fine Woodworking. I had no idea that it would get featured in the newsletter. I am honored, and perhaps a little overwhelmed.

Here is a link to the video:

Everything looks great you should be proud of all that you have done. I really enjoy your web site and all the information you provide us. You couldn’t be any more professional in my book. Thanks for all the effort you put in to the work you do. I look forward to more impressive projects and shop ideas from you. What a tour, A+, first rate, cool music too.

You have a great lookiing shop. I have a question for you.
You have a Dust collector with four ports. Is that from a manufactor or did you build it?
Have happy days making saw dust.

Thanks for all the support!

I modified the dust collector. I actually have a followup video on this issue ready, but with the surge in web traffic due to the attention from the Fine Woodworking Newsletter, I held off.
