View on YouTube I met with David Marks while he was still in the early stages of his greatest woodturning project (yet!). He showed my the specialized lathe tools he uses for very large hollow vessel turnings and some of his woodturning tricks! He also explained his amazing methods for storing, drying and stabilizing wood for his wood turning projects. The scale of this woodturning project is amazing! The blank for this turning project weighed 400 pounds! Even the tools he use...
Behind the scenes of my shop and YouTube channel #4: David Marks, Michael Cooper, Peter Brown, Ray Mowder, & Zac Higgins!!!
This is really turning out to be the trip of a lifetime! I interviewed Zac Higgins in Carson City and Ray Mowder in Sacramento. Both of them are great guys and I had a lot of fun meeting with them! Then I drove further into northern California and interviewed the great sculptor Michael Cooper! It so happens that David Marks lives just a few miles from Michael and I got to spent an entire day with him! Then, the icing on the cake was that Peter Brown also lives in the area and I g...
Day one at David Marks finishing class in beautiful Santa Rosa. David and wife Victoria are terrific hosts, the class is small with an interesting variety of folks, and the weather couldn’t be better. And hey! I’m on vacation! I’m really enjoying the pace of the class with enough structure to keep it moving, but plenty of time to get to know David and the other students and to get all our questions answered. My goal is to establish a broad foundation in wood finishi...
Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options On a recent visit with my friend and mentor, David Marks, we decided to make a little video together. Initially the idea was to simply show David my video production process. But as things started to progress, I knew we had the makings of a great video and this was something I wanted to share with the woodworking community. The goal was simple: let’s turn a bowl! But as easy as that sounds, properly filming ...
Yesterday was a good day, by almost any woodworking standard. Regrettably I didn’t touch wood to a tool. So how can it be a good day? I got to spend it with David Marks of WoodWorks Fame. He taught a class at my local WoodCraft and my wife was kind enough to give me the day to go. This was my second class with David; I took one about a year ago on Double-Bevel Marquetry (keep meaning to get a scroll saw, but something bigger and more powerful always seems to get in the way). The class ...
A quick look into David’s latest creation. Its a massive disc-shaped turned piece with a big marquetry image on the front. David gives us a rundown on his process and some of the challenges he is facing with this piece. Its almost like an episode of Woodworks…..sort of.
David Marks finishes up his tour with a review of his wood boiling apparatus (used for drying out turnings), and his art gallery. The gallery contains many beautiful pieces by David as well as other amazing woodworkers. David caps off the tour by showing us his skills on the drums! And believe it or not, we have a few outtakes! Also, David recently released his Scrapers DVD. It contains everything you need to know to properly sharpen card scrapers, cabinet scrapers, and gooseneck scr...
I know there are a lot of Woodworks fans in the LJ community, so I figured this would be a fun series to post here. Last summer, on our Gadget Station delivery trip, we decided to stop and visit the one and only David Marks. If you’re not familiar with David, he is an incredible woodworker, and used to host a show on HGTV and the DIY Network called Woodworks. But the show has been over for nearly 5 years and David has moved on to bigger and better things. While we were there, he...
Many excellent woodworking videos. I stumbled on this link for this site on Reddit.com, from a posted link on creating a solar furnace from coke cans (that garage gets cold in the winter). Once I found the tool stuff, this is the first video that caught my eye: Cutting Inlayed Dovetails using the Leigh D4, by Al Navas I have a D4, but haven’t tried doing anything fancy yet, but maybe at lunchtime…. The tutorial is three videos. I also noticed David Marks and Wood Wh...
