I actually used one of each method on each leg. I donated the chair to Habitat for Humanity Restore. So i can’t really say which method will really last in the long run. And yes, ireally did find the chair thrown out. Actually there were two of them that i repaired and donated. But i only used one the video.

Something about that video is vaguely troubling…hard to put my finger on it.
Love the cotton cloth tip, I’d never heard that one.

Good info and all, but the schtick reminds me way too much of the Sham-Wow guy.

Some great tips in the video but i can’t help thinking that you were a character in Happy Days. (not the Fonze, or Richy, maybe Potsy ? )

Thanks guys. I’ve decided to film the jobs i’m doing. So more videos shoild be coming out on a regular basis.BTW YOu might see a similar video on this subject with me in it for Elmers Glue. I’ve been contracted for 6 videos. 3 are done, 3 to go. But i haven’t given up on Wood Choppin’ Time. I have several videos i’m editing now. projects, tips, and a lesson i taught live for the Society of Period Furniture Makers on Chippendale furniture. It was a good chance for me to practice some of my stand up comedy with a tough audience. (it went over great). So plenty more to come. Thanks for watching guys!

I still have the sponsors. They are contracted videos for Titebond, Irwin, and Elmers. The videos are made for them. I just don’t do Wood Choppin’ Time. The videos for them are more serious. I’m lucky because for the Elmers series i get to write, produce, directand host the whole project. The Titebond and Irwin videos i just hosted them.
