Greetings fellow woodworkers - I'm your host at Eagle Lake - John Nixon from Buffalo, New York.
I am a spare-time woodworker with an interest in making American Arts & Crafts style furniture. Located outside Buffalo, New York, I have a basement woodshop that is approximately 440 sq feet; of which I use every inch. Having a small shop forces me to be better organized and to find creative ways of using my space!
I am heavily influenced by the Roycroft style as well as the work of Gustav Stickley (especially the furniture designed by Harvey Ellis). I've been doing fine woodworking for about Seven years now. Before that, I did carpentry and home remodeling for 10-12 years.
The heart of my efforts are the many instructional videos I've made. I made my first video for the Internet a few years ago when I wanted to show off the Motorized Router Lift. I quickly found that it was a great way to reach a lot of people in a desired format. With the encouragement and support from viewers around the world, I starting making more videos. My approach to woodworking videos is simple - I want to show you how I do things in my shop with as much close-up woodworking action as possible. I like to share my techniques and travels in woodworking with the world. My intent is to continue making project-based woodworking videos for all to enjoy. . . .
Enjoy Eagle Lake Woodworking, and feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
Thanks for stopping by!
John W. Nixon
