My latest project video, Steel and Walnut Modern Shop Stool, is out now! You can see it by clicking the image above, which will take you right to my YouTube channel.
Last month, I picked up a Longevity MIGweld 140. For $375, it is the most affordable full MIG welder that I am aware of, and since I bought it I’ve had a lot of requests for a review. The review will go up on YouTube tomorrow, but Patrons can check out the One Car Workshop Patreon page to see an early preview.
Beautiful plumage. Et cetera.
So I’m sure some of you are wondering where on earth I’ve run off to since late March. That’s fair, and I apologize for the disappearing act. While I haven’t been producing much in the way of videos, that doesn’t mean I have been idle! Here’s some of the stuff I’ve been working on: Continue reading
The first run of One Car Workshop shirts is complete, and I want to thank everyone who purchased one for being awesome and offering their support. It means a lot to me. The second run of shirts (using silkscreen instead of heat-transfer) is now available in the store, so go check that out. Anyone who purchased one of the first-run shirts can contact me for a special coupon code giving them a serious discount.
Most people who received a shirt have already sent a photo, which I love! Continue reading
I am completely done shooting the project video. I have imported all of the footage and matched up audio and video, and I’d say I’m about 80% through my rough cut. I estimate that I need about 3 solid hours of editing before the video will be ready to publish, which I should be able to get done tonight.
In the meantime, here’s the second in my series of Shop Journals. I am enjoying these videos as a less formal alternative to my usual. They also give me more practice talking to the camera without getting nervous or stumbling over my words, which should translate into better, more frequent videos overall.
Thanks again for watching and I hope you enjoy the video. Work safe!
I expected to have a project video for you today, but my mallet had other plans. However, such is my devotion to you, my fans, that I have instead created this short update video so you can see what’s going on around the shop. I hope you enjoy it!
Work safe (safer than me!),

I hope you’re all having a great holiday. I’m sure you’re all recovering from a New Year’s celebration of some kind. I could lie and say that I’m doing the same, but I’ve spent the whole week down in the workshop, so I’m exhausted for entirely different reasons. Continue reading
