A friend sent this to me, and it is simply a joy to watch. I didn’t even realize it was almost 16 minutes long! It’s a lot of fun, and for me, it had a lot of “Now what on earth is he doing here?” moments that were followed up by “Oh! Brilliant!” resolutions. I like that in my process videos :) This guy has some serious tools and space, relative to me, and works magics with a Wood-Mizer bandmill. I have most of that stuff in half or quarter the scale (but n...
Making the Workbench with Paul Sellers If the video below is not working please use this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru2ZiNsWek This replicates my personal workbench, one I have used and preferred over all others for, well, actually, half a century. Let’s talk briefly about benches and specifically working workbenches and not images of what a bench should be. Anyone can build any bench type they like, regardless of whether it works well or not, is big and clunky and la...

I have wanted to try to make one of these ornaments ever since I first saw them. They are so interesting, and everyone asks- “how did you do that”? I had trouble understanding a lot of the how-to descriptions, and even the videos were hard to follow. I found this one tutorial that I thought was good, and after about the 10th read-through I thought I’d grasped the concept.” http://www.ptwoodturners.org/Tips%20and%20Handouts/INSIDE-OUT.pdfOne of the first things I did wa...

Last time I messed with the Stanley #444, the side walls of groove were pretty ratty. Not that they’d be seen, of course, but the product means the nickers aren’t sufficiently sharp. A little work on the fine DMT showed it wasn’t flat on the outer surface of either of the two nickers. I worked each just enough to get the surfaces flat. Then I carefully worked the primary bevels of each on the fine DMT. They’ve got a ‘camber’ to them alr...
