I’m working on building an Arts and Crafts style Panel bed. The bed is inspired by the Stickley Bed pictured below. There’s three videos in the series so far, and I hope to have more out soon. The quartersawn white oak grain on this wood I have looks really good in person, and I’m excited to see the bed come together.

Thanks for the video, John. As always it is clear, concise and pretty straight-forward to follow.

Hey John,

again a great video, I love to watch you videos.
I have one little question, and probely it ask several times, but why
are your videos so light from color.
is that because off your camera or is that because of the light?

Thanks again for your great video.

Schummie.

Hi Schummie,

I’m still trying to work out the optimal lighting for my videos. I agree, there are scenes with hotspots and wash out. I’m a one-man show, so it’s often times it’s too late to do anything about it once I’ve recorded it. I’d love to have another “me” behind the camera looking for trouble, but for know I’m solo.

Thanks for watching the videos!

John
