The past couple years in spring my benches have sold well. A few people asked me to make a video showing how to build them so I said sure and decided to make a video series. This series is for a slightly different design to make an arm chair and side table based upon my bench plan. I’m new to making videos and the entire project was filmed with my phone so I apologize for the weird camera angles and volume. Im far from Marc, David, or Norm but I had fun making the videos, hope you enjoy! The next series will be the bench itself as I have a few to build this week. 4 videos total, will update as they upload.

Just a suggestion Jay. You might want to add the “Video” tag to your post, so it will show up in the list when someone clicks the Videos tab at the top of any Lumberjocks page. This looks like something a lot of video watchers will want to see.

Without that tag, the post is only in the blog listing. I can’t speak for others, but I keep a lot closer eye on the video listings than I do the regular blog listings. Just happenstance that I noticed this entry at all.

Cool project. Very straight forward, very easy. I wish all my projects were that easy. Thanks for the post.
