Ben's Workshop


One of the main pistons of the diabolical Tool Monger posting engine is a guy named Benjamin Johnson. We just saw (via Twitter of all places) that in addition to his tool-specific writing over at TM, he's started up his own website called Ben's Workshop.

In his own words:

After writing almost 1200 posts for Toolmonger, I would like to break out of the narrow column format and explore how to bring projects and other cool tool related posts to the web in some different ways. I still plan to write for Toolmonger, where I'll continue to concentrate on new and cool tools, but here in the workshop I'll show more of the projects that I work on in my shop and how I get them done.

So far those projects include adding eye hooks to a canoe rack, creating a wooden train track piece, and mounting a caliper to a drill press. As you can see from the selection, he's just recording all the little workshop things that he does on a day-to-day basis. It's not going to be a site where you go looking for a specific how-to, but rather one where you can see some interesting techniques and maybe leave with an idea or two.

It's a cool site, check it out here.
