Let’s start this evening off with two snippets of good news, heading in to the weekend…
First – I’ve been back in the workshop today!! 😀
Second – I spent the first few minutes filming a brand-new video tour of my workshop, a good year or so after the previous film! Many things have changed since then and, looking back, I can see several areas that I forgot to highlight while filming (you’ll find a link to this video further on in this post).
Having officially finished the suspended floor now, I’ve taken a little bit of time to film this short, ‘silent’ video-tour of my workshop in its current state, before I’ve really had a chance to start clearing off the shelves, removed the two floor-standing units and, generally, reshuffled everything around for better optimisation of my current space.
As you’ll see in the video, there’s still a lot of work to be done before I can get back to some proper woodwork again! Hopefully, most of this will have been resolved by the time I come to release a second video-tour, in a couple of weeks.
…Yes, there is a little irony in the title of the song playing on the radio! 😀
A few weeks ago, The Wood Whisperer (Marc Spagnuolo) made an honest admission (with a video) that the current layout of his workshop, one-year on, was far from ideal when it comes to actually making something [see Shop Evaluation Update]. I thought it was great to be able to see the true state of his ‘shop, while he’s working – which is something you don’t get with with most Workshop Tours, since the author generally has a thorough tidy up and puts everything neatly back in to place, ready for the camera…
I’m equally as guilty of this myself. 😳 So, in order to clear my conscience and cleanse my soul, let’s take a look at how much ‘shop has been looking for the past week… 😕
Admittedly, I should have made this post several months ago, back when I first created this blog on WordPress. Little has changed within the last four-to-six months, to be honest. Though, I do intend to make this a regular ‘feature‘ of my blog; opening a new ‘tour‘ every six-months. This way (as a post), we can all look back and see how work has progressed, without having to over-write the previous content (which is what I’d probably have to do in creating a separate page).
Please keep all arms and legs inside the vehicle – hope you enjoy the tour!
