Here’s a quick look at my Woodshop. I had to use a crappy old “tape” video camera, but just had to get into the WoodWhisperer/Lumberjacks “Shop Video Challenge”!

You have a great collection of tools and I really like your asssembly table, even though it would take up too much space in my shop, too. It was a great video.

Well done! Great looking shop. I agree with Mark – I really like your assembly table.

Excellent tool collection :-) (not sure how to make a drooling icon!)

The coolest thing about these shop tour videos is the opportunity to look in someone else’s shop and make notes of interesting solutions to our common passion. I think Marc at The WoodWhisperer even mentioned this in oone of his episodes. I am constantly stopping the video and looking at the back wall or making note of “how did he do that? kind of details.

Thanks for sharing this very interesting look into your shop!

I love the organization of your shop. I have the same room as you do, but it doesn’t look nearly as nice.

Great video, super shop to be proud of. Love the storage. What a work bench! Thanks for sharing.

had access to an assembly table like that at a class I took – very very handy thing to have. sure beats the kitchen table (which turns out isn’t dead flat!)

The first day on Lumberjocks, & you start off with a great video. I’ll be looking for more of your stuff in the future.

Great tour. Your cabinets on wheels are terrific. I also liked your organization of the machines. You must be excited to have an 8 inch jointer, and the DeWalt planer. Great tee shirt and great shop.

great organization of your space. I liked the tablesaw/router combination. Brilliant creation of big space for both machines.

thanks to all for the warm welcome and great feedback! I’ll have to re-evaluate replacing the assembly table. Another space saver I forgot to mention is using my workbench as the outfeed table for both the table saw and router, an additional bonus of which is that I work in the middle of the room instead of against a wall as I see so many workbenches.
