I enjoyed the tour of your shop/shed Larry, I would have liked to see the inside of the inspirational fridge though, lol, good show, look forward to more from you.

Lazy Larry, I can’t tell you how much that I enjoyed this video. I thoroughly enjoyed it!!!!! However, you have such an interesting shop that I will have to watch it several times more – at least. You have mentioned several things that you have that I’m not familiar with – especially the fence system that you have on your table saw. Since the table saw is often the heart of the shop I would have to know about anything that would add that much value to the saw itself. So I am intrigued about that. I suggest that you might want to do a separate video about that. Your inspirational fridge and chair is nothing new to me. I have both in my own shop. However, the only difference is that my inspirational fridge is only a small 2ft x 2ft x 2ft fridge that sits above my wife’s freezer in the little 9 ft by 9 ft room that I carved off of my workshop so she could have room for the freezer plus a little extra for storage – can’t believe that I actually carved off that much of my already small shop -can you? Aren’t I a wonderful husband? I also have my own inspirational chair except it is not nearly as comfortable looking as yours. It’s a small fold up bridge table chair that sits leaning against the wall. We have a den and a living room and I even have a study in the house but I spend more time in my shop than any other room in the house. I love my little shop and it is more like my study than is my study where my computer and all of my books are. I also have a small patio off of my shop where I enjoy spending some time. I don’t know where you came up with the name Lazy; you seem anything but lazy to me. You have a wonderful shop and I’ve seen some of the things that you make and it’s really quite impressive to me. I would love to know a little more about how to shoot videos but that’s something that I will have to wait to do because I can’t afford a camera right now. From what I have seen I believe that you will do some wonderful things with your business, your shop, and your own web site complete with videos. BTW, do you have a web site? if you do please post it so that I can know about it. God Bless

Larry, love the shed and especially the inspirational chair next to the inspirational fridge. Glad to see you are working on making what you love to do pay. You have a great set up and have given me some inspiration on what I need to do with my shop. The sign in the backgropund say’s there is “Free Beer Tomorrow”, wish I could get there that fast for I don’t think you could travel to far for free beer!

Enjoyed the walk around your shed. Very well done and pretty informative video. Thanks for the walk and will have to watch a few more times to see what I’ve missed.

Thank you Larry for the tour. I´ll inspire myself, and believe other will also.
For sure I´ll watch you´re video a couple of times more, since it is quite ample and informative.

You still will always be ahead of us, at least 23 hours. Now your tomorrow beer is my day after tomorrow beer, so I have no chance.

Let me tell you that your one man video studio may work better than your shop !!!!

Can´t wait for the reloaded Third episode

Larry my friend, will you adopt me? I’ll do my part in keeping the inspirational Fosters in the inspirational ‘fridge.

As for the book, you should have gotten the companion volume too, “Women for Woodworkers”. :) I think it was published by Playboy.

Your video skills are coming along nicely, but some of your wipes are coming too soon, cutting off the last few words of your commentary. Still, for only your second try it’s far better than some I’ve seen from far more experienced videographers.

Now if we could just do something about that thick limey accent of yours! ;)

When you look out at that beautiful view come december and january, think of me here in Winnipeg where it will be 30 below or so… (sigh)

Larry, next time, if you need a camera-man, I’ll be there!! (as long as the inspirational fridge is full and unlocked)
