    video tour of my wood shop

    I hope you guys understand. I have been on furlough from work now for almost two months due to my carpal tunnel surgery and for the last two weeks have been searching for stuff to keep me occupied during the day. I will be thankfully going back to work in a week or so. But, the fact is, I have been lacking in stuff to stay busy all day. I had been fooling around lately with my digital camera which is able to shoot video and I had mostly been using it to document some of our spring fishing expeditions. Well, boredom bore in today and I figured what the heck, shoot some video of the shop. At the least, it served to kick my butt into gear and clean up the shop a bit So without further ado......

    Great video! I know your pain (well sort of). I had surgery on my thumb to repair a fracture back in mid-December, so I spent two months and some change banned from my garage. I've only done some carving and a couple of other small projects to help knock some of the rust off. Feels good to have tools back in my hand.

    Great video and shop Fred. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us and hopes for a continued recovery. I see a lot of really good ideas in that video that I need to give some thought to. I really like the arrangement of your tools.

    Hmmm...all the times I've visited your shop I didn't feel quite so, umm...well...dizzy. Nice job Fred! Great tour and I really do like that stop feature at the RAS.

    Nice shop.

    Thanks for the tour! You have a nice shop.

    You probably already know that there is a recall on your radial arm saw, but in case you don't you can go to radialarmsawrecall dot com to check it out. They will send you a new guard and table board.

    Nice shop Fred, thanks for the tour. The machines look like they are just sitting there waiting for your hands to get better. Hope you get well soon.

    Nice Tour Fred!

    Outstanding Fred!!!! Extremely motivating to see the shop's of others in a video format. Great idea on incorporating the DeWalt Planer into your 30 foot long bench. I bet that has worked out well for ya. Thanks again for being so generous posting a video of your shop. Those type of things never get boring to look at. Well done sir!

    Thanks for the tour!

    I like that big bench/assembly table. Looks very versatile.

    Frank, thanks for the heads up. The retrofit is ordered and on its way.
