    A thing of beauty!

  2. firman syah on January 23, 2023 at 3:37 am

    I love it. I am going to duplicate your small boxes! Wish you always the best. Great regard from Indonesian.

  3. SergioU on January 23, 2023 at 3:40 am

    At last. It’s exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

    I am one of those people who managed to disarrange even an empty room. I will set my goal: make my mini workstation with half the elements you show in the video. 😉

    Cheers!

  4. Phil Selman on January 23, 2023 at 3:40 am

    Verry fine job on everything we’ll done

  5. Florin Valeanu on January 23, 2023 at 3:44 am

    OMG! My girlfriend keeps saying that you can never have a little setup in half a room for this type of work. Cheers buddy…you just helped my case👷👷👷
    Vive la Roumanie!

  6. Holz Jani on January 23, 2023 at 3:47 am

    You are so Nice
    It is incredible that you can build such beautiful things in such a small place.
    I love it

  7. Dieter Hasselhoff on January 23, 2023 at 3:47 am

    I love this tune

  8. Robb's Homemade Life on January 23, 2023 at 3:47 am

    I only have a small apartment balcony to work from. There are so few videos on small apartment workshops. I really enjoyed and was inspired by your video. I subscribed. I knew you were serious when I saw your three sharpening stones. I am going to be looking at your other videos. Thanks again for making and sharing.

  9. jcsrst on January 23, 2023 at 3:50 am

    I love your small workshop! I am sick of people showing off their massive shops with all their expensive tools. You prove that you don’t need all that stuff to make beautiful pieces! Thanks for sharing ; )

  10. 601salsa on January 23, 2023 at 3:52 am

    I am trying to learn skills i can use to make a new life on some land but without power and not much money. Hand tools look expensive but not as much as some power tools. I am looking into cabinetry so i can make my own furniture. Really interested in the routers.

  11. TheMegaMrMe on January 23, 2023 at 3:53 am

    how do you handle dust and cleaning? doesn’t it get on the rest of your stuff?

  12. Tae Jun on January 23, 2023 at 3:55 am

    wow! A truly beautiful set up, love that i searched for "woodworking in an apartment" and i’ve come across someone that obviously knows the struggle, i would love a cabinet just like yours, i hope to start my journey soon, thanks.

  13. Stephen R. Black on January 23, 2023 at 3:57 am

    Thank you. Finally, a believable workspace. Loved the mini workbench build video as well.

  14. badasspuppy on January 23, 2023 at 3:57 am

    How do you handle sawdust? My wife would kill me

  15. Дмитрий Юнтиков on January 23, 2023 at 3:57 am

    Спасибо, самоудовлетворился

  16. A. V. on January 23, 2023 at 3:58 am

    Hi from Belarus! Well done! Keep it up! Many thanks!

  17. hung si on January 23, 2023 at 3:58 am

    Dear Adrian. Im dung, and come from Vietnam.can u photo your Books in this video.im don’t have any book yet. Thank my favor capentry.

  18. Jake on January 23, 2023 at 4:00 am

    Where did you learn your woodworking skills?

  19. Max Douglas on January 23, 2023 at 4:01 am

    Great space and beautifully organised

  20. bitbrain on January 23, 2023 at 4:01 am

    How’d you keep the sawdust off of everything? 😀

  21. Carlos Algarin Jimenez on January 23, 2023 at 4:03 am

    Beautiful stuff men. How do you work out the sawdust? Do you cut and do sanding in the same room ?

  22. Handyman on January 23, 2023 at 4:05 am

    How do you keep that small place from becoming a dust/sawdust bin when working on meaningful projects that require much sanding?

  23. Friendly Piranha on January 23, 2023 at 4:05 am

    Adrian Preda – what a lovely work space you have built there. I love it.
    However, I am VERY jealous of your turntable. Vintage Pioneer ROCKS😁

  24. rem45acp on January 23, 2023 at 4:05 am

    I find that with apartment woodworking it’s not really the lack of space but the noise and sawdust issue. I can’t cut straight with a handsaw to save my life to that basically means a band saw, circular saw or mini table saw which make tons of noise and dust. I have no balcony available on the third floor and neighbors across the hall and on one side, no garage to use. So yeah it’s really the noise of power tools and the sawdust.

  25. Jacopo Naspi on January 23, 2023 at 4:06 am

    i think it’s the first time I binge watch a youtube channel like this…thank you for sharing! thank you for taking the time to build so much beautiful things!

  26. Friendly Piranha on January 23, 2023 at 4:07 am

    Adrian, what are your comments regarding the Kebiki marking gauge?
    How well do they work and how accurate are they compared to something like the Veritas?

  27. Minh Tran on January 23, 2023 at 4:08 am

    @0:11 Oof I love that small bench & frosted glass panels.

  28. Rap Anonn on January 23, 2023 at 4:10 am

    Excelent! Superb! Ești o inspirație! Felicitări!

  29. Jeremy on January 23, 2023 at 4:10 am

    alright. forget the "Japanese" in the names. Do you always put the nation names for all the goods?

  30. Cristian Qwerty on January 23, 2023 at 4:11 am

    But do you really use the tools or do you collect them? everything is very clean 🙄

  31. Mojima on January 23, 2023 at 4:11 am

    All i see is japanese 👍👍👍 but i dont see makita 😁

  32. Nicholas Carey on January 23, 2023 at 4:12 am

    I didnt know people even did this…I was worried I’d need to pay for more space lol.

  33. Macaroncheese on January 23, 2023 at 4:12 am

    I’m curious, how do you deal with dust?

  34. Scott Palangi on January 23, 2023 at 4:13 am

    Thank you fir this, a lot man. Would love to see vids of how you made the components.

  35. Lucky Lou on January 23, 2023 at 4:13 am

    Its all about packaging. Amazing what one can fit in a small space if it is planed out.

  36. Joanna Pocock on January 23, 2023 at 4:15 am

    very compact space but it is very well organized !!!

  37. ChrisCas - Tool Aficionado on January 23, 2023 at 4:17 am

    Very nice. Thanks for the tour. I think I’ll be watching more of your channel.

  38. Kelley on January 23, 2023 at 4:18 am

    Sitting here in the middle of the night, making plans to set up a new HF multipurpose workbench in my kitchen workspace (50"). Discovered your channel, and it gives me inspiration on how to complete the project. Scrolling is my interest.

  39. Rothin Borde on January 23, 2023 at 4:19 am

    Wonderful set up. Amazing

  40. MIRKO ROTONDI on January 23, 2023 at 4:20 am

    Finally I feel more relaxing…I am a product designer which loves woodworking…but I have a small studio which I’ve felt as limitation to work on with wood…but now, after I’ve seen your wonderful projects, talent and lots of things made only with hand tools, I can say that if You want and you’re talented, the space is a limits only for big things but for all the rest, if You’re (of course) talented, You can do everything. Very good Adrian, all the best from Italy:-)

  41. Aaron Alquiza on January 23, 2023 at 4:21 am

    hello, how do you deal with wood dust/shavings?

  42. ELSDP-45 on January 23, 2023 at 4:21 am

    THANK YOU…for sharing. Very nice.

  43. Kay Lindermann on January 23, 2023 at 4:23 am

    Yeah, the minimalist woodworker…

  44. Robert Jeffords on January 23, 2023 at 4:24 am

    Love the workshop but Christ is that music annoying!

  45. Garry Johnson on January 23, 2023 at 4:27 am

    Such amazing work and set up and truly incredible, also inspiring! Could you potentially do a shooting board how to in the future? Thanks for the tour, Adrian!

  46. William Penn jr. on January 23, 2023 at 4:27 am

    I have a small apartment workshop. I’ve been planning on creating a tent system that I can set up to enclose myself when I work to prevent dust getting around my apartment and loud noice from disturbing my neighbors. I thought of buying a pop up tent and covering it with acoustic foam. Any suggestions?

  47. DaveEP on January 23, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Wow that brings back memories, I had that exact record deck!

  48. alfab ,. on January 23, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Japanese woodworking is the most overrated, take a look at Chinese or German work.

  49. Beck on January 23, 2023 at 4:32 am

    Super aranjamentul. Cum e cartea lui Offerman?

  50. Gordon Adams on January 23, 2023 at 4:32 am

    Dust control in such a small space?
