Nice job Matthew, I’m glad you take safety seriously. Can always find more wood, you only have so many fingers. Your sister is going to love that box. Thanks for sharing.

Very professional. You attacked a job that isn’t something just anyone is comfortable doing. I didn’t see the old school wrist mallet mentioned in the “tools used” portion of the credits though.

Very well done. Have you thought about being a teacher? You would be really good at it. What do you think about the Osbourne mitre gauge? I haven’t seen it before.

Thanks for sharing and keep up the excellent work.

P.S. Your Dad is a really good assistant

Hi everyone my dad and I are just in from the shop. sorry for a late reply to everyone. Its 11:14pm here right now and that is late for me

yes i want to keep my fingers as long as I can :) thank you for your comment

I don’t know what that is but we will google it thank you for your comment

Thanks safety is very important

no i never ever wanted to be a teacher, I never thought about it. The osbourn mitre gauge works really good for me, really good for making miters. my dad says there are reviews of it on lumberjocks that you can look up.

A wrist malet is where you start pounding on things with your palm and wrist instead of going for a malet of another type. Old school woodworking. If you use your wrist as a malet, you might end up with mallet finger. Hopefully not full blown mallet wrist.

Great job, I’m jealous of your slick tablesaw! Hooray for the new generation of woodworkers (including myself)! :)

Matthew, Ask your folks if they know the Whittle family. I used to hang out with a few on them back in the 1970’s.

Have your say...
