no previous part Part 1 of Quick tips with The Woodworking Coach series Part 2: Flattening a board with the help of hot glue and laminate shims »

So, this summer I’ve been busy with classes, client work and additional prototype designs for a new gallery, a museum exhibit and future class designs, as well as compiling content for some plans and templates I’m creating. Somewhere along the way I’ve been able to film a series of educational “quick tips” for woodworking. So here’s the first of my new series “The Woodworking Coach”. For more information visit my school’s website: Thanks for watching!

Hey guys, Thanks for the comments.

@Dave – Thanks for the support!

@Tim – Hi there, Tim! How you doing? Glad to hear from you again. I see you’ve been doing a lot of projects lately. Keep it up!

@gpastor- Thanks for the “heads up”. We “upgraded our site a few months ago only to have my web guy go awol on me part way through. We’re working hard to patch it together in the meanwhile. It’ll be great once we’ve got it full functional. Thanks!

-- Andy Chidwick,
