Nice spread! Great shop tour. Well built shop! Liked your moving day and sled idea. I just got a little bit dizzy on the move, that’s all….Get ‘er done!

Herman -

I love Canada! What an awesome tour inside a commercial shop. Congrats on the new space. I really enjoyed the plywood sled and your ending. I have been through the Fraiser Valley – very beautiful.

YES! I love it. That press is great and the sled at the end was the highlight. :) Thanks Herman!

Great video, Herman. From what I could see, it looks like you and your father make some nice chairs. I’m not so sure of the safety involved with driving and video taping, but it was fun to watch.

great tour – I can’t imagine the feelings you must have gone through as the upcoming move approached. That’s a lot of “transition”.

and of course it couldn’t happen without Timmies.
