Dave Richards makes SketchUp easy

Dave Richards makes SketchUp easy

749 days ago by jeffbranch | 18 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...

Great DVD on the Jointer and Planer

Great DVD on the Jointer and Planer

2279 days ago by Mike Lingenfelter | 13 comments »

I heard about this DVD over at Matt's Basement Workshop. I hadn’t hear of Hendrik Varju before that, but I’m glad I know about him now. His DVD on the power Jointer and Planer is one the best woodworking DVDs I’ve watched. It covers all of the techniques you need, to get the most out of your Jointer and Planer. If you are new to using these machines, I highly recommend this DVD. I wish I had had it when I first bought my Jointer and Planer. Many of the mistakes I made ...

Hal Taylor Instructional Rocking Chair DVD and Plans Rock!

Hal Taylor Instructional Rocking Chair DVD and Plans Rock!

764 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...

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 ...

Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books

Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books

2214 days ago by mikega | 5 comments »

“If you can’t finish, you can’t build” This is the comment Charles Neil made to me when I first meant him last year. By now many of you know who Charles Neil is and that he is on a mission to teach other woodworkers what he has learned from over 30 years as a professional woodworker. His latest DVD set that he just released is called Finishing A to Z Beyond the Books.As you can see from the picture above this a 10 DVD set. There is about 15 hours of information on ...
