I’m finally renovating my dream woodworking workshop! Last week my wife and I moved into our new home in the countryside. Not only does it sit on 6 acres of pretty farmland & woods, but it has a huge 25’x40′ garage that was built for a RV motor home! I needed a new workshop/film studio, and was looking for a property with something to meet my needs, but I never thought I’d find a place this huge!

The workshop definitely needs some work. The previous owner left a huge mess, so cleanup was the first priority. You would have loved seeing me all suited up in a beekeeping suit while spraying all the wasp nests!
The roof never got soffit, facia, or rake boards put on, so that’s happening tomorrow. I’ve been working on installing some extra electrical boxes, insulating the 2×6 frames, and hanging drywall. In a couple weeks I’ll be trimming out the windows & door and bringing in a wood stove.
My goal is to give the workshop an 18th century feel, with a few modern touches in the back. This will be a great place for not only building furniture and filming woodworking videos, but I have plans to offer classes taught by some amazing traditional woodworkers…stay tuned!
