Great vids! The hand tool abilities in this series are impressive. The hidden mitred dovetail and piston-fit drawers are sweet too. Vids like these are fun because they tip us on to different ways of doing things. I liked the use of a cutting gauge in the drawer making.

These videos are amazing .There are three of us in New Zealand currently enrolled in a beginners cabinet-making course watching these after a hard day butchering joints. I think we’ll all give up.

Does anybody know what type of wood they are using. I find it amazing that he can score a line on both sides of the board and they give a karate chop to break it off. Bolsa wood maybe?

Amazing, the drawers were so tight the air pressure opened other drawers when you closed one. His tools are sharp beyond belief! Great post.
