Hi Folks!

Here is my first entry in my lumberjocks blog. A video shop tour for challenge02. I maintain a smallwoodworking Blog – Mots Woodworking Blog, and a small tool review blog – Mot's Tool Blog over at Blogspot. I also keep an up2date photo essay of my current and past projects at my Picasaweb Album for K and T Woodworking. K and T Woodworking is just the name of my shop, named after the initials of my children.

Thanks for watching!

Nothing like doing a podcast to find those tools you’ve been looking for. LOL. You have some very nice tools and a nice setup. What is it about the tunnels? Are you and MsDebbie crossing the border to get to you’ll shops? LOL. I like how you mention whether you felt certain purchases were good or not so good. Nice workbench, you didn’t seem to feel the need to talk about it, why? Nice bowl. Nice Festool collection. It’s great how you exlpain those purchases. You’ve got a lot of vaccuums to empty! I really enjoyed the tour, thanks.

Hi. About the bench, I was about to talk about it when I saw that ring of spilled pop and I got side tracked. When I read about this on thewoodwhisperer, I just grabbed my camera and headed down to the shop and just started talking. After watching it once through, I could have taken a little less time with some things and spoke about others a little more. I have to tell you, it was fun to do. I think that podcasting might be a fun way of adding another element to woodworking. Thanks for looking!

Alright, alright…the bench. I guess I still didn’t say anything about it. My bench is a Veritas bench with hardwood base, tail and front vise standard. Lee Valley Veritas Benches.

Cheers!

Nice…. I too appreciate the commentary about which tools were good purchases, and which new ones have trumped old ones… Too bad about customs.

Thanks for the tour. It was great to hear your assessments of the various tools based on your own experience with those tools. Thanks. Also, interesting to see someone else using MFT for outfeed.

Hello from one of your imaginary friends!! :)
That was a great tour. I, too, liked all the discussion about tool assessment.

Hey, Os… you’re pretty observant about the tunnels to the U.S. :) hahaha good one.

We have to be very vigilant after 9-11, but I think we can allow the two of you cross as long as it is for woodworking purposes. LOL.

Mot -

Great shop tour! I love your tool collection. I also appreciated your candid insight about tool purchases. Cingrats on the awesome Festool collection. Any chance of you talking to my wife?
