DIY Bottom Up Woodshop

Tools You Need To Run A Well-Oiled Woodworking Palace!

A while ago, I assumed management of the Boston Architectural College woodshop. Our facilities were on life support - many of the essentials were missing or in desperate need of an upgrade. With a modest budget, we've recently completed a major overhaul. Time to tool up, yourself?

With the help of my excellent staff, we're here to share the tools you'll need to sustain and develop your own shop - or familiarize yourself with ours. A big shout out to our Resident in Fabrication James Dean, and David Morgan, Christian Borger, and Nicholas Kuhl for making both our new shop and this Section Cut a reality! #learnthroughmaking
