Charles Neil The Magic of Routers

Charles Neil The Magic of Routers

2040 days ago by mikega | 9 comments »

The Magic of Routers is Charles Neil’s latest DVD. This is a 5 DVD set that gives you over 10 hours of instructions on everything you want to know about using a router. On disk one he reviews different routers. Then he explains some of the many different types of router bits that are available and how they are used. He then talks about the different ways to guide a router and follows that up with a discussion on hand held routing and using a router table. Although he does not tell you how ...

Hal Taylor Instructional Rocking Chair DVD and Plans Rock!

Hal Taylor Instructional Rocking Chair DVD and Plans Rock!

887 days ago by mbs | 9 comments »

I was surprised not to find a review of Hal Taylors instructional material. Every thread I’ve read about Hal compliments his work. I couldn’t copy a a picture of his DVD cover so I used a picture of my rocker. As a first time rocking chair builder I put my ego aside and searched for plans to build the chiar. There are several builders who supply plans. I chose Hal’s because of the positive feedback given by others. I’m very happy I selected hal’s plans b...

Master Woodworking Plans

Master Woodworking Plans

2139 days ago by disgruntled | 8 comments »

The online digital purchase of the Master Woodworking Plans turned out to be a great disappointment.Their website advertises in a very deceiving way plenty of wood working plans that in reality are just a collections of outside links to other websites in cyberspace where one has to sift through more ads to finally realize you can buy their plans. I was very disappointed since the same result can be achieved by searching in any search engine and leave this review so others might be able to r...

 Turning Basics with Steve Shanesy - DVD Review

Turning Basics with Steve Shanesy - DVD Review

1871 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 8 comments »

This week I was excited to receive a complimentary copy of “Turning Basics for Furniture Makers” from Popular Woodworking. With my shop currently out of commission, a woodworking DVD really hits the spot! Now most of you know I consider myself a utilitarian turner, meaning, I usually only turn when a project calls for it. So when I watch a typical turning DVD, my attention usually starts to drift pretty quickly. Most of these titles are produced by amazingly talented wood turn...

MLW Tool Box DVD and Grand Slam Tools 4-PAK Holiday Special

1713 days ago by FlWoodRat | 8 comments »

Fellow Lumberjocks, Tommy MacDonald at Major League Woodworking has done it again. Tommy is offering his first MLW DVD and the Grand Slam Tools 4-Pak as a Holiday Special for only $100. I’m very happy to have taken advantage of the opportunity. Yesterday I received my set. As expected, it was impecably packaged. Since Tommy’s 4-Pak (Bench Bat, Marking Gauge and two 1:6 paring blocks) has already been reviewed here, I will focus on the MLW Tool Box Project #1 DVD. The DVD is ...

I’d like to review a 2 DVD set that was created by Major League Woodworking by Thomas MacDonald. Tommy is a member of LumberJocks. He also has his own Web Site majorleaguewoodworking.com On the web he has forums where you can post questions and also your projects that you’ve created at mlwwoodworking.com/forum This DVD is making an item called “The Toolbox” Project 1. I’m assuming that this is going to be a series of woodworking projects all created by Tommy. In his easy going style you...

Fundamentals of Inlay DVDs

Fundamentals of Inlay DVDs

1458 days ago by RogerBean | 8 comments »

I’ve had the recent opportunity to spend some serious time with Steve Latta’s three DVD set produced by Lie Nielsen. Many of us are inspired by the great inlay work of traditional furniture, but find it intimidating to begin cutting little grooves and the like into our newly created masterpiece. So we often pull up short, and fail to finish the piece with the inlays it calls for. Or, we can try the trial and error method at our peril. Neither is necessary any longer. These videos show yo...

Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD  By Steve Latta

Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry DVD By Steve Latta

95 days ago by sandhill | 8 comments »

I was really not going to buy the Tool kit but when it included the DVD by Steve Latta who actually was the one responsible for the development design with lie-Nielsen I decided to pull the trigger and invest in the kit. For me the DVD was worth the entire cost of the kit and the tools were the added bonus Steve spoke slow enough to leave time to grasp the topic and made each step clear. When explaining a new term he was easy to understand. Each section flowed seamlessly to the next and was l...

Ok here it is….we have waited and waited and then that great day came when we finally got the news…..the Woodrights Shop is finally going to be released on dvd!!!!! Before I even review this first installment I want to say in my opinion this set may only be for the diehard Roy Underhill/Woodrights shop fan only, in regards to if you are wondering if the marked down $39.99 to $29.99 price tag is worth your money for each double disc dvd package. The shows content….is pr...
