They are cool I’ve seen the ones you’ve made on you blog. Very nice , of course what else would you make but cool. I must admit it’s hard to think about a guy that can build and finish anything and everything including a bombay making buckets ,but that’s what it’s all about anythig and everything. enjoy all your work and DVDs
Thanks Charles

Charles, I watched the rest of your video today. You really put a lot of effort into making it. Thanks. I have had a hankering to do a bit of coopering for a long time, whenever I get around to it. My idea was to make a couple of table saw jigs. One on the right side of the blade to start the first slat. The second on the left side to make as many successive slats as possible for the width of the material. Everytime you made a successive cut, you would flop the waste piece over to become the next slat until you ran out of material. This would maximize the number of slats you could possibly get out of a given piece of material. Of course, one would have to keep their wits about themselves and keep track of which way they were cutting or you could easily end up with a pile of kindling :=) Any comments?

I enjoyed the video. Only change I’d make in your method would be to cut the end angles first, so you don’t have to reset the slide. I’d do the grooves for the bottom while the staves were still in square tool same reason.
