Woodworkers Guild DVD

Woodworkers Guild DVD

1223 days ago by rpalm | 31 comments »

I was quite irritated when I received this unsolicited DVD by mail. The offer is to review and keep for $12.95 or return post paid. I almost stuffed it in the return envelop and return it unwatched but decided to take a look. After viewing the very good instructional dvd I kept it and will receive future dvd’s in the series to review.This may be the best instructional dvd I’ve seen. Excellent production quality along with clear and concise instruction. The instructor gives great ...

Back Issue Library

Back Issue Library

862 days ago by Karson | 31 comments »

I just received the Woodsmith Back Issue library. I gave it a 4 stars because it doesn’t give you full search capability of all issues. When you start it on your computer it comes up in a window in your browser. On the first page is all of the 200 covers for all 200 issues. You can click on a cover and go to that issue. Once you are there you have to go through it page by page, and there is no search capability when in an issue. On the main page is a search section and you can ...

Alone in the Wilderness

Alone in the Wilderness

860 days ago by jjw5858 | 28 comments »

If not for the viewing of this very interesting documentary woodworking may have never gotten into my blood as strong as it has. This documentary is many things in one, part nature hike, part meditation, part woodworking…..and in all parts a wonderful journey of a man that decided to live his life his own way. Richard Louis “Dick” Proenneke (born May 4, 1916 – April 20, 2003) was a retired highly skilled mechanic living in Alaska that took his modest nest egg and decided ...

Improper sales / marketing techniques

Improper sales / marketing techniques

889 days ago by BigBear | 27 comments »

About three months ago I received a notice from this company claiming to have sent me a DVD and wanting me to either return it or send them $12.95. I never received anything from them. But, even if I did, according to the post office it would have been a gift from them and I would be under no obligation. I have asked them to quit, reported them to the post office and the BBB. So far, nothing has worked. They keep on sending demands for money. I have learned that this is one of several ...

CHARLES NEILS IT'S ALL ABOUT COLOR DVDs

1522 days ago by a1Jim | 23 comments »

My long awaited DVD set, Charles Neil’s,” It’s All About The Color”, that I ordered a while back, came today. I’m suppose to be in the shop right now, but thought I would watch just one of the 6 DVDs . It didnt work out that way… I’m watching #3 right now. What’s it about? It covers waterbase finishes and how to get the color you want from each one. One DVD for 6 of the main woods: cherry,oaks,maples,walnut,poplar and mahogany. It’s great...

Dave Richards makes SketchUp easy

Dave Richards makes SketchUp easy

852 days ago by jeffbranch | 20 comments »

I have been using SketchUp now for about two years. As I look back on my progress learning this complex and amazing software program, I have come to the conclusion I went about it the wrong way. Often, I would start a model and as I ran into a problem, I would search the internet for the solution. I was learning in small bits and pieces – never taking the time to participate anything that would resemble formal lessons. I think many other woodworkers learn the program the same way. I decide...

I’ve had this DVD in my collection for a few years and today was the rainy day that I guess I’ve been saving it for.Doug Stowe goes into great detail on making several different styles of boxes as well as many different joints , machine set-ups , jigs, sleds , etc., etc..

I forgot where I got this copy , but it says $19.95 US and $24.95 CAN on the label....
