    Amazing woodshop!!

    Hello all,
    I searched the group and don't think this has been shared here. I came across this video a few days ago and was blown away. It's a little long but well worth watching.

    This guy has more invested in clamps than I have invested in tools.

    I stumbled on the site months ago and was also blown away with all of the stuff this guy has. Not only tools, but memorabilia.
    Spoiler alert..the video is better with the sound off.

    I've been watching him for a while . he's pretty funny . He calls it "The over the top" woodshop , and he is right . The giant carved butterfly was pretty cool , although he doesn't have many videos . Just the shop is worth a look .

    I wonder what sharpening system he uses?



    Edit: At 24:23 it shows his sharpening station. Wow.

    He owns a construction company. His woodworking is mostly there in his shop. No wonder we find tools sold out.

    I think it's pretty amazing, but it's almost over the top to be nauseous.

    If I had 10% of his clamps, that would still be 50% more than I have.

    When he opened the table saw blade storage, I had a little vomit in the mouth moment, not from the well thought out design, but the number of actual blades in there.

    Impressive shop... but I didn't see much that he actually made in the shop (other than accessories for the shop).

    I guess he doesn't use hand woodworking tools much, given the number of varnished examples on display way up high, out of reach.

    I liked the way he stored table saw blades, but I have to wonder how many of those blades does he actually use?

    He likes Milwaukee cordless tools (so do I)!

    I thought the way he stored the bar/parallel/etc. clamps was not very efficient in terms of wall space, especially for the numbers of identical style and length clamps he had.

    The brackets like Lee Valley has, that allow you too store multiple clamps "in depth" against the wall would have given him a lot more room for other stuff, without harming access to those clamps one bit.

    Just don't store different length/style clamps on the same bracket, so the clamp you want is never buried behind something you don't.

    The bracket style I am referring to is this:

    https://www.leevalley.com/en-us/shop...k?item=15K1101

    I am only advocating the style of bracket, not necessarily the specific product.

    Me too. I paused and counted the blades. Who needs 50 table saw blades???

    That being said, quite impressive. Does he actually make anything, or just build his shop?

    I went back to look at this and noticed that not all of them are 10" tablesaw blades.
    Some look larger (12' miter) and some smaller.

    I’m on another hobby forum where a member stretches his OCD/Collector muscles with exotic sports cars and lawn care equipment. He’s a very successful guy and by all accounts is a wonderful human being. More power to that bunch.
