Here is a little lamp table I have made to demonstrate hanging a door using butt hinges. In this video I show the process involved to construct the base less the door. The door is constructed and hung in part 2.

:) different boy, different bike. LOL Nice to watch something built in the home shop! With affordable tools? I’m thinking the planner is a costly machine? Thanks for the tip on gluing the dowels!

Back to paperwork….grrrr!

I hope you start a new trend here on LJ’s Andy. I’d love to see more people doing hands on videos of their projects here. I would even settle for watching a silent video. What’s nice about watching you work is I’m learning something! And people can ask questions about the project here on LJ’’s. It’s better than TV! I’s always here to see when you want it. Maybe you could make a video of how to do a video!
Anyway, Nice job so far on the project and video mate!

Ah, man! Why did you keep us hangin’ like that? Making us wait to see the door and finish. You could have at least rode a wheelie on the bike to give us something to hold on to until the 2nd video comes out. Ha ha.

Really, it’s fun to watch a project being built, thanks. Looking forward to the next one.

Maybe I missed something along the way but, I am taking it that you build furniture full time and not just as a hobby?

your videos are like zen for me. an indulgence, a guilty pleasure. the bob ross of wood. i really admire the way you work the wood. i think you are about to go past your dovetail line, then the waste piece falls off and you’re done. never a measuring tape. cut to fit. just a cheap plastic hand saw, and the old horizontal drill is just too cool. the tip about squeeze out to the inside, not the outside, was golden. I saw a video once with a couple of guys looking at a table made by a well known furniture maker (japanese american, last name starts with N, or maybe just japanese). They looked underneath the table and noticed squeeze out and wondered how this iconic woodworker could allow squeeze out to exist on his masterpiece. they thought that maybe removing the squeeze out would weaken the joint. it was kinda of sad. hey, you are really good at video editing also. multi-talented. now get busy making that next video.
