Another great video Andy, keep them coming. I would like to see a plan for your shaper jig for shaping curved parts. I can use one here in my shop.

2011 Kawerau National wood-skills festival. Yee ha. I got first place in the pine section for “Grace” and my student got a 1st in an open furniture section with a sister of “Grace” ie mine was the prototype. Our students received firsts and highly commended as well as merits.

Hey Andy!
It was a nice surprise to see your video when I checked on LJ’s. It’s an inspiration to me and I bet a lot more Lumberjockies out there to see you in the shop making somthing nice!
Grace is beautiful! 1st place! You can’t shake a stick at that! Congratulations!

Hey! You even used hand tools! LOL! So there was a “pine section? Wondered why you were making the piece with pine. Nice to be back in the big shop? :) ( big motors and nice chisels!

The fit and finish were definitly the work of “da masta” :0
Lines moved well through out the piece. Dovetails in the places where people look. What is the strength factor re; dowels?

The video was well done, appears to be high def? Miss your casual attire? :)

Congratulations on winning recognition for your students and your self.

Your design?

More please!
