Number three in my shop tour series – we visit the shop of Jeff Heath in Crystal Lake, IL. Jeff is a very accomplished woodworker and maker of wooden hand planes. He has a very nice shop for both woodworking and metalworking where he builds furniture, makes some really nice high end hand planes, rebuilds machinery and does pretty much whatever else he likes.

Cabinet maker here and I could not imagine working in such a bad setup. Terrific machines though I'll bet they would be wonderful if he put plugs on them and got a dust collector. I wonder if it's hard for him to have a dust free shop with no dust collection. I can get rid of my dust with two of them

Tim McNeil says:

I'm blown away by this shop! I'm kind of Jeff's neighbor, only 1/2 hour to forty minutes away, so I sure do hope to see it in person some day.

Tom Kovacic says:

Nice video ! Jeff is a great guy and craftsman !

Keith Ward says:

Youtube needs to add an envy rating instead of just thumbs up and down. I assume the few thumbs down were just that.

Waiakalulu says:

Did I miss the DoAll discussion? That was a pretty cool one!

Jeff Moss says:

OnlyTheEd says:

I for one, like that "knotty pine" tongue and groove paneling. Thumbs up for that.

Razor Works says:

My home machine shop HS53 says:

Very impressive shop , love it .

Da vid says:

My dad would cry over seeing those machines and not having them. I mean they´re kinda big but as my boss likes to say: "Having stuff is better than to wish you had it when you need it."

Ken Handscombe says:

Graham O'Keeffe says:

Oh I'm going to have to go get the mop and bucket as I'm drooling everywhere. Lovely workshop and love the old machines.

benrivenbark says:

Keith, Jeff must think highly of you and your shop visit; He even pulled a brand new shirt straight out of the package for the event! 😀 Kidding aside, That's a lot of beautiful equipment there.

Larry Pardi says:

Great work and some very cool tools.
