I have seen a number of Steve Maskery’s videos online here on LumberJocks and on YouTube. I liked what I saw in the clips he has posted, so I decided to order some of his DVD’s.
I bought the “Workshop Essentials 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Mega-Bundle” (49.99 GBP), and am really pleased with my purchase.
The 5 DVD set contains hours of material covering a wide range of jigs and fixtures for table saws, track saws, routers, and band saws. I have already built one jig (fine-adjuster rip fence for my band saw), and have plans to build others as the need arises.
The production values are very high … the segments are well-lit, and nicely photographed, and the writing is clear and concise. I also enjoy Steve’s presentation … he uses a bit of good-natured humor, and his use of the King’s English is impeccable.
The DVD’s include plans in PDF format, along with SketchUp models for the various jigs and fixtures on the DVD.
The “Workshop Essentials 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Mega-Bundle” was an excellent addition to my woodworking library!
