Episode 20: Woodworking Jig Awards!

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Stumpy takes off his blue denim shirt and slips into a tuxedo for the biggest night of the Summer!

The second, semi-annual “Stumpies” is the world’s first low budget, mostly random and poory produced awards show just for woodworkers, and this time we’re giving out prizes for the best woodworking jigs. Who will win? Who will walk away with a free subscripton to Shop Notes? Which of Stumpy’s dumb jokes will be the biggest groaner? You have to watch to find out, and believe me… you won’t be disappointed!

Episode 19: The Drill-"impress" Table

Once in a lifetime we achieve a level of perfection so high we wonder if our very lives will ever be the same! That is what I imagine all of you will think the moment you see the new drill press table. Or, at the very least, you'll have a good time laughing at me.

This episode of Blue Collar Woodworking is all about the new drill press table, complete with downdraft dust collection, drawers for storage, and a micro-adjustable, X-Y sliding table.

After that we show ou how to make a downdraft sanding station, and pack a bunch of machines into a small space. Then Stumpy shows off his three unique measuring tapes, complains about hampster bedding and makes his own studio lighting from a lasagna pan.

All that and more is packed into the best fifteen minutes you'll spend sitting on your rear. So enjoy...
