Wednesday Woodworking – A Video Tour (of sorts)

With the move and all the related fun I’ve not been able to do much woodworking, but I’m getting started on shop setup.  I’ve also wanted to start working more with video creation so I made a short video of the current state of the shop.

I like watching YouTube woodworking videos so I thought I’d play around with it to see if I like creating my videos.  I don’t any fancy equipment or editing programs.  What you see is just done with an iPhone and iMove.  I thought I just put it up here for you all to take a look at.  This just might be something I do more of.

    I echo what others have said in that you have a nice video voice, Andrew. And you did a great job on the video. At least you’re retired, so you have all the time in the world to design and fix up the shop and yard to your liking. Looking forward to more videos.

  2. So wild to hear your voice! It totally sounds like you, though, which is good, I suppose. I mean, it wasn’t a situation where I was like, “That’s not at all what I thought his voice would sound like!”

  3. How many boxes did your shop stuff occupy? Having just packed all of our worldly possessions a few months ago, this is something of immense interest to me… We’ve moved so many times in the last 15 years yet I’m always surprised how many boxes it takes to pack a kitchen. I would imagine a shop would be sort of the same.

    • My shop took about 25 boxes, 4 rolling carts, a rolling tool box and a small van to move the tools, supplies, and lumber I cared about. Next time I move, I just buying all new stuff – might be easier and possibly cheeper …


  4. I like your video – well done! It’s nice to hear your voice. Wow, that all looks like a LOT of work, but I’m sure you’ll get a great deal of enjoyment out of getting everything the way you want it. I’m looking forward to more videos of the progress! 🙂

    You have the perfect voice for video. 👍
    My dad had a few of those rolling carts (he made several and wound up selling them). Enjoy the process, Andrew!

  8. Isn’t it great to be retired and have time to get things set up the way you want? You have a great “video voice” so I predict your videos will be a hit.

    My husband has built rolling stands for all his power tools (similar to the one in your video, perhaps.) He rolls them up against the wall when he wants to pull the car into the garage.

    My husband would have loved seeing this. He started out with a shop in our double garage. (For 19 years, we parked outside in the driveway.) By the time I moved away at the end of that 19th year, (He had passed away,) we had 7 studios. We appropriated the basement, and then he just started building on. at first to the garage, then a free-standing structure that every year or two sprouted a new room until it was 5 rooms! You two are two of a kind, I think.
