    Very good stuff John. Educational, and I like your demeanor.

  2. Mike Halpin on January 16, 2023 at 3:05 am

    Hey John, my new machines cast iron tables are rusting the last couple of weeks. You mentioned a product in this video that helped the rusting. What was that? Still organising my shop since the last lockdown!! Maybe I’ll get there this lock down!! Well done John on a great channel.

    Hi John. Just found your channel. Subscribed. Great to see an Irish man with a YouTube channel. I built a Roubo Workbench 6 years ago. If you build 1 of those check out bench crafted. Dont cheap out on the roubo hardware like I did, if I had my time again I’d buy the expensive hardware. Workholding on the Roubo is excellent.

  4. Davi on January 16, 2023 at 3:09 am

    Hi John, I always enjoy your wood projects! I have an suggestion for you: why not to connect your dust extraction system into your sanding table. It would be very nice! Maybe by creating like a big box with the table top. Sorry for my writing. Best Regards from Brazil!

  5. Kedrick Foster on January 16, 2023 at 3:11 am

    Workshop goals!

  6. Ken Birch on January 16, 2023 at 3:12 am

    Hi John, new to woodworking, just bought a mitre saw and will be attempting your mitre saw bench.

  7. Bryan Johnson on January 16, 2023 at 3:13 am

    Hi John, so glad I found your channel, hobbyist WW here too in the northern plains USA. Really like what I see, genuine and down to earth guy, keep up the good work–like and subscribed!

  8. nigel warner on January 16, 2023 at 3:14 am

    Enjoyed that … great to get new ideas

  9. The Carpenter's Arms BBQ on January 16, 2023 at 3:15 am

    Excellent video John. I really enjoyed watching that. My workshop is the same size as yours but no where near as well organised. I’m going to have to pinch some of your ideas, hope that’s ok. Cheers Rich

  10. Crimson Custom Guitars on January 16, 2023 at 3:16 am

    Nicely put together workshop there, I too am a record power and workshop heaven fan!

  11. Daniel M on January 16, 2023 at 3:17 am

    Hey mate, why a jointer before a table saw? Just curious because I just opted for a table saw over a Jet jointer/planer. Maybe I should get both?!

  12. Neo on January 16, 2023 at 3:18 am

    That’s some man-cave! 💚👌

  13. Greg Arrell on January 16, 2023 at 3:21 am

    Wish I had a shed even half that size John. Keep up the good work.

  14. TRY DIY Пробуй Делай on January 16, 2023 at 3:23 am

    On the channel, I want to share how I create various things from wood,metal, construction experience and many other things made with my own hands.
    I have no special education, no production experience,there is only a desire and desire to improve skills.

  15. wood and garden on January 16, 2023 at 3:24 am

    👍😉

  16. Joel Ferguson on January 16, 2023 at 3:25 am

    Not sure if you can get sassafras but it’s a pretty inexpensive hardwood here in the USA. I am making my first trestle table with it. I wonder if it would make a good workbench.

  17. Hussain AL-Hussaini on January 16, 2023 at 3:26 am

    Came for the content.. Stayed for the accent!.. Keep it up and big cheers from 🇰🇼 Kuwait 👌🏼 ❤️

    Can’t wait for the PVC grounding issue tho..

  18. Ian Dodd on January 16, 2023 at 3:27 am

    John, new subscriber here. Discovered your channel when I searched "grounding a dust collection system" and you know what came up. Thanks for that. Going to be a big help as I design my shop to build later this year (roughly equivalent to yours in size). I’m curious to learn more about the Men’s Sheds program you mentioned. Wondering if that’s similar to something we have in the States called the Mankind Project. Anyway, yes to a better year than last, the one in which my wife and I had to cancel our month long visit to Ireland. Maybe when we reschedule, we can book an in-person shop tour. PS-also subscribed to your whiskey channel. Slainté!

  19. shanes maine shop on January 16, 2023 at 3:27 am

    Wow what a great shop.

  20. Brewbuilds on January 16, 2023 at 3:27 am

    Nice shop John! I’m also electrician and a hobbyist woodworker, I to have never understood the popularity of people grounding their pvc dust collector pipes. Once I get my dust collection fully installed I planned on making a video on it too! keep at it man, i’m going to go check out some more of your videos!👍

  21. its me JOE on January 16, 2023 at 3:29 am

    Great shop John, how do you heat it?

  22. Zane Llewellyn on January 16, 2023 at 3:29 am

    Great intro video, I’ll be back

  23. its me JOE on January 16, 2023 at 3:30 am

    In my two car garage shop rust can be a problem, Florida can be very humid and all cast iron machine tops I use strike hold CDLP works pretty good.

  24. MediaServer8 on January 16, 2023 at 3:31 am

    New viewer. New subscriber. Exactly the right level for me as a very novice woodworker seeking info and insights. Cheers.

  25. Michael Schuler on January 16, 2023 at 3:31 am

    Great tour! Your skill and creativity are impressive; your humility and pragmatic approach are refreshing. Thank you from a new and enthusiastic subscriber.

  26. Jose Rodriguez on January 16, 2023 at 3:33 am

    Thanks for sharing your shop tour video great job

  27. JOHN CALLAGHAN on January 16, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Hello John, great video, 1st time viewer. I’m an Electrician and hobbyist woodworker, just in the process of setting up my workshop.
    From the UK now living Florida so I battle humidity too!

    Looking forward to going through your videos.

    What part of ireland are you from, my family is from County Dublin

  28. Sailslikeagirl on January 16, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Hi noticed you have not got a table saw, do you not think it’s an important part to a workshop?

  29. WAHNERHEIDE on January 16, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Hello Pro handyman friend,

    very nice workshop well equipped with machine and other, well thought out, one thing that is missing is the view of the outside "windows on the garden side" I like to see the four seasons parades, in the morning at 06:00 I savor my mug of coffee sitting at my closed desk in the workshop and I watch the birds in the "cherry" fruit tree a treat for me in the morning and the light that illuminates the workshop is wonderful for me moments that I share with my Children, then the resumption of the project in court, I write the best chapters of the book of the life with my Children, but with each these means for the workshop of the dreams.

    Good continuation to you ….. Sincerely Alain from Belgium

  30. Hew & Awe (Ben) on January 16, 2023 at 3:37 am

    Mind blown! A sparkie who’s tidy and too tight for Festool 🤣🖖

  31. Ron Barnett on January 16, 2023 at 3:38 am

    As a new guy into woodworking in ireland would you have any ideas about where to get good timber thanks

  32. Glenn Dornak on January 16, 2023 at 3:41 am

    On your miniature work bench, how tall should it be on my bench if I am 6 feet tall?

  33. Nalin Pankhania on January 16, 2023 at 3:44 am

    well done Helped me – I’m setting up a hobby new workshop

  34. Elliot Nesterman on January 16, 2023 at 3:47 am

    Regarding a new band saw. Matthias Wandel has built three bandsaws of wood, including the wheels. He has a series of videos on building his 14" bandsaw, and recently built a 26" bandsaw and has videos on making the wheels and the parts that are different from the 14" version. Check them out.

    Great video. I just came across your video and can’t wait to watch more. Happy 2021

  36. Norman Boyes on January 16, 2023 at 3:50 am

    Happy New Year – good tour.😀👍 A good start for 2021.

  37. Obear h on January 16, 2023 at 3:52 am

    Good man John, great tour and a few good ideas for my own wee shed up in Belfast. Cheers lad.

  38. Kevin Ronald on January 16, 2023 at 3:55 am

    Very interesting tour of your shop, thank you for this. Just one item which you may think will help – a lockable metal cabinet to keep your finishes, waxes and alcohol cleaners in.

  39. Chris Wearn on January 16, 2023 at 3:56 am

    Hello, I’m a first time viewer and I am pleasently surprised. I normally do not watch those that have everything because it takes the fun and skill out of woodwork. But I will admit I really enjoyed watching your workshop tour. You have some amazing ideas especially with your clamps. And it was ice that you are giving free plans for the small bench. I have subscribed and I am going to start watching your vids. I am lucky in the fact I have half a si glen car garage to work in. And I do have a few bits of power tools. I also agree that people should get the planer thicknesser as their first tool.

  40. Becky Quinlan on January 16, 2023 at 3:57 am

    Fantastic workshop tour John.
    I really like the hand made kick vice.
    Very nice work !.

  41. AcidDeathRitual on January 16, 2023 at 3:58 am

    LOL, 4×2. Mad lad.

  42. Barnacles on January 16, 2023 at 3:58 am

    Great looking shop! I’ve only got a large shed which I can just about fit a Table in with the few tools I have!
    I watched your other video on the DX4000 and was wondering if you could answer a question?
    Do you run the Record power with just one motor or both motors? I’ve been looking at the DX1000 due to costs for my small shop, Currently just a Mitre saw, orbital sander and a few other hand held power tools. Although I will be getting a Table saw soon also!
    If you run it with just the one motor I am guessing the power will be the same as the DX1000? Just wondering if it would have sufficient power to do the basics of what I need!

  43. Franks DIY on January 16, 2023 at 3:59 am

    LMAO I’m a retired electrician wood and atv hobbies/youtuber lol. Nice shop looking forward to seeing more

  44. Donald Jones on January 16, 2023 at 3:59 am

    You don’t have a big fancy table Saul

  45. ciaran conroy on January 16, 2023 at 3:59 am

    Is that a Bosch professional track saw?

  46. stuart parkinson on January 16, 2023 at 3:59 am

    from a fellow irish spark/contractor with sawdust in the blood like yourself , Nice shop . look forward to going through your vids as I am finally setting mine back up after having to get rid of it after the celtic crash and life changes .

  47. RXR Sawdust Station on January 16, 2023 at 4:01 am

    Thankful to have landed on your on your channel and this video! That’s a lustful shop (lustful 😝 ) ! That was very well done! Well written (organizationally speaking – the script (for lack of another term) and its delivery), well video’d (organizationally speaking) and very well detailed! I especially like your innovative ideas (specifically speaking 😉 ) ! The mini-bench is awesome! That Moxon and Leg design is amazing! Very well done and executed! It hurts my back watching you adjust the pin under the bench but standing up at your mini-bench made my back feel better! 🙂 But, the design is very creative and innovative! Thanks for a great video! Any chance you’ll learn English in the coming year? 🤣 😉 LOL!!! Totally just kidding. I know what a bod and a bit is. All the very best to ya! #KeepTheChipsFlying!

  48. SiJamesWoodworking on January 16, 2023 at 4:01 am

    Great video! Just given you a follow on instagram too 😀

  49. Shannan Schisler on January 16, 2023 at 4:01 am

    Did You make it with Stodoys?

  50. Don on January 16, 2023 at 4:04 am

    Great shop, the only thing I did miss was a table saw 😂
    I just subscribed to the channel, I am looking forward to the new projects 👍
