In this video I show to take a gnarly piece of walnut and get square 4 sides (s4s), the starting point for any woodworking project. After you watch this, take a look at Mitch’s video with the link above.

In a few days, we will be releasing another video that talks about the pro’s and cons of each method along with some tips and tricks.

If you have an idea for another round of Hand or Power, please leave a comment below or use #handorpower on Twitter

Excellent demos by both of you sawdust and shaving makers.
Great content for the, IMO, basic first step in doing a project.
Have you already done a section on Material selection?
Do you each shoot your own videos? Or, do you use a single video maker?

Thanks. We haven’t done one on material selection yet, but thats a good idea. And since I live in Indianapolis, and Mitch lives near London, we definitely shoot our own videos. Maybe someday if we have a big enough budget! HaHa. Thanks for watching and the nice comment.

Thanks for the video. I think we need more like this to pass on our skills.

Thanks for watching, and yes, I couldn’t agree with you more.

Enjoyed the videos! A great way for someone to learn to mill wood to s4s. Looking forward to seeing the comparison between the two methods. Although I gotta say, the power tool method seems much faster and more efficient!

Thanks Dean! The “Talking Points” video will be released tomorrow night. And I agree, the power tool method is more efficient and repeatable.
