Hi all,

It has been a busy week, but I managed to knock something together for the challenge.
Hope you enjoy.

We be a jammin’...Liked the background music. Nice endorsements! I like the way you did the router table for a tight or small area. Happy woodworking!

Love that new quick release bench vice you have…is it still under warranty?

Great job Giz. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Panama….. The vise is under warranty. But it was more user error. I have not had that happen before. Inspection time.

Thanks for the tour John and thank your camerawoman as well. Lots of fun to watch. The vice almost had me rolling on the floor.

Thanks Wayne..

I have to say .. It was pretty funny to watch me with the vise. At that moment I was getting cranky.

I thought you rolled with it quite well. I’m glad you left it in some folks would have edited it out and reshot it.

Don’t get the ”big head” Giz, but I think it’s one of the best. It’s all natural and fits your personality well. Thank you for sharing….and not editing.

Thanks for the tour! It’s a great time in a man’s life, when he’s mastered his vise! :)

Nice landscaping leading up to your shop. I don’t understand why you have no handles on your shop doors, but they do look nice. There were a lot of “dings” in there and it was fun seeing the raw video without any editing of when you had trouble demonstrating your vice. Thanks for the fun tour.

John: Great Video. My daughter sent me an e-mail and said are you going to make one. I replied are you crazy.

Thanks for the tour.

Thanks Karson and Oscorner.

Oscorner. That was edited. I just haven’t installed the handles. It is low tech security. I always go in through the side door and push the doors from the inside.

Thanks for the tour! Great looking space – I enjoyed the prior posting on building your shop. You have a great collection of tools and a wonderful supply of wood. It is great to now put face, character and voice to your postings! Thanks again.
