Mosca Woodworking

A shop tour with a lot of storage and working options. I like how personal this space feels. Developing a color theme and going with it for everything really makes a workshop feel like it belongs to someone.

A clamp rack with storage for more than just clamps. I like the individual holders for glue and such. I also think Matt has too many clamps…..I think there’s a saying about that though…

I really like the construction of this bench and the fact that it’s modular. Mike does a good job explaining and demonstrating why this works for him. Using a LVL beam for the top is also a great idea for stability. Lots to take away from this video.

Andy did such a great job with this video. It also helps when the subject of the video is none other than the great Frank Strazza. Both of these guys deserve a follow if you’re interested in woodworking. Frank also has a nice message with his approach to woodworking.

A 50’x78’ structure with a 50’x48’ shop inside :) Could you live with this setup?

Fiaschetti Woodworking

Whoa. Just a couple steps to knock out one of these! Incredible design and execution. This is one of the best woodturning pieces I’ve ever seen.

Bent’s Woodworking

I might be a little biased as to why this turned out so great. Jason came to my shop to knock out the inlay piece for the name plate. But that’s just a minor detail in a beautiful project. The design is simple and elegant. Walnut and white paint looks so crisp.

There’s so much thought into this space. And the obvious question, who lets their kids skateboard in their bedroom? These awesome parents, that’s who! I love spaces like this for kids. So much fun and so much opportunity for them to be creative and explore. Kudos to you Mr. Elisio.

  1. OMG. Best collection of videos yet. Frank Strazza is an amazing man with a pure soul. I would love to meet him someday. Mosca is a master working in such a small shop. I hope someday he can follow the path that you took and expand into a larger shop. He deserves it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Jay, please remove the link to the Fiaschetti video. That is the most unsafe use of a table saw I have ever seen and his video should not be recommended. Seriously, the tiniest of kickbacks and all of his fingers are gone cutting that initial ring.

    • I just looked again and see that he has a SawStop which is the only thing that would save his hand however he should not have to rely on the brake when common sense should be a priority.

    • He’s no John Heisz – at least he admits it wasn’t safe (watermark in the corner) and admits he should have done it differently later on when he finds a better way to do it
