« Part 1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT! Part 2 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 3: Stumpy Short: What's He making? »

The camera comes back into the Stumpy Nubs Workshop to further document life in a small semi-professional shop…

Includes tips on hand cut dovetails, utility chisels, resawing wide boards on the table saw, glue-ups, and a lot more!

This is part 2 of Episode 1. It begins with making the CN Box, then continues the “amazing mini-cabinet marker’s bench”.

My favorite part is the footage on cutting tiny dovetails by hand, big ones by machine, and huge ones with a honkin’ chisel!

Also included is the first of many “mini-tool reviews”.

Enjoy!

Great episode there big guy. Good info and waiting for the next installment. Keep it up.
Whats with the ranger looking fellow and the birdhouse?

Stumpy way back when I started hand cuttin dovetails I used a Marples flush cut saw. It taught me a whole lot of lessons. It also lead me to use eastern saws. I hate western saws. (no offense to western saw lovers)There is zen and good logic in cutting on the pull. It finally got a bit dull and hangs near my bench to cut of parts while they have wet glue on them. Great tips and Tommy was a great help for me to. Although I am a tails first kinda guy.

Well, you’re moving right along. I have to admit that I would be quite intimidated if I was challenged as you have been. I really appreciate your no nonsense approach to woodworking. I totally agree about having a computer in the shop. Sketchup has been a wonderful tool. I use it all the time.

Really enjoyed actually ended before I was ready for it to.

Noticed you got plenty of coverage of push sticks and other safety items ;)

I did like the format I think #2 actually turned out a bit better than #1

Love it! A big improvement from part one, although I’m not immediately sure why. Must be cuz you lost the radio in the background :) It’s a little confusing that it’s titled “mini-cab workbench”, but you’re mostly working on the CN challenge, but I get it now.

In the video I am working on both projects at the same time. For example, I demonstrate dovetails by showing the tiny ones on the box, the medium ones on the bench vise and the big ones on the bench leg. About half the time is on the box, the other half on the bench, but they are melded together.

Good show, stumps!
BTW, I was eating breakfast with my daughter the other day and noticed a startling resemblance – you haven’t been making any visits across the pond to western NY lately, have you??
