    Great looking shop and a wonderful personality. You should be on TV hosting your own show. Best wishes man.

    I had my electrician run a bunch of outlets off my existing service about four feet off the ground, so there’s one handy for most tasks. But the outlet I use the most is the power strip I zip tied to my main workbench. I run power to that with a long extention cord, so I’m free to move my bench around. The DIY Network has some good layout suggestions online too. Give them a try for some more inexpensive ideas. Good luck wth the shop! – Jim

    I am in the very early stages of planning for a woodworking shop. just curious as to where electrical plugs would go, more so for smaller power tools that i would be using at my workbench, i have seen the power cord hanging from the cieling with a chain and others a built into the bench, what would you recommend the easiest/cheapest way for me to go with? thanks alot. i subbed.

    Thanks Scouser! I’m thinking of doing some workbench modifications myself – swapping out all the wheels for bigger ones. I haven’t done much work with cedar, just a couple trunk linings. But I jumped on Lumber Jocks and they had some good advice. Check em out for a tip or two. Good luck! – Jim

    Good to see you back in the shop! I made one of your portable workbenches a few months ago and it works great! In hindsight, there are some things I would have done differently, but I guess that’s part of the journey. Random question: any advice on how to treat cedar?

    Keep the videos coming!

    Great advise! Also I don’t know why, but most of the sound comes from the left channel. Maybe you can check it out.

    Thanks for the video, looking forward for part 2.
