Shop-made tools in Gary Weeks' shop

Recommended Posts

Their edge sander and chair back sander are interesting.  I made my edge sander with a 12" drive pulley and 6" idler to get different radii.  The large radius is a real game changer for working curves and something you just can't get without building your own.

Not only is the shop and product something to look at, I think that is one of the best websites I have seen in quite a while.

I think this was my favorite quote:

 

Some people call this space a studio.  There is artistry...but it's a shop.  It's noisy.  It's physical.  Machines play a big role.  It's not a factory where parts move from station to station manned by operators.  Parts do move from station to station, but they are accompanied by crafts men and women whose hands, eyes, and hearts are engaged in the steps and invested in the outcome.
