Onward and Upwards – New workshop for 2016

As many of you know I’m about to hit the road for a month with my theatre work asย the stage technician for David Strassman the ventriloquist

while this is pretty exciting news the realy exciting thing is upon my return in December I will picking up the keys for my brand new workshop and getting ready to take things to the next level.

The works space itself isn’t huge at 109sqm (1173sqft) but it is a lot more space then I have currently and with a bit of careful setup it will be a very comfortable space to work from. The unit has nice high ceilings at about 5.5 meters (18ft) so will be able to store things up high, its got loads of natural light through the sun roof and east facing windows and its plenty of power for all my tools and machines.

While its not as big as my old warehouse my work has changed directions a little bit and dont feel that I require as much space this time around.


In the new year I will be returning to a weekly video format which I know some of you will be happy about and as we setup shop we will have plenty of new “shop storage videos” as this time around I will be chucking a bit of money into setting up shop before I try and do anything else. That means storage, storage and storage.

So while things will be a bit quiet for the next month or so while I’m on the road there is plenty of exciting stuff just around the corner so stay tuned!

    • haha it is a bit like that! But i did always say this small shop would only be for a year :p

      I’m moving into bibralake, its only 10km from my house so its ideal.

  2. What happened?

    I’m sure I saw a post about you having moved into your new workshop a couple of days ago? I also feel certain that I saw you showing off your ‘new’ win belt sander – or was that a mere mirage?

    I hope things are working out for you, Jord. Best of luck!
