Turning Furniture Parts by Charles Neil

09-09-2009 12:30 AM by mikega | 5 comments »

Turning Furniture Parts is Charles Neil’s latest DVD series. This is a 2 volume set that includes 4 DVD’s. The title of volume 1 is “The Basic – a Foundation”. This volume is designed for the woodworker who wants to step their furniture building up notch and has not done any turning before or for the turner who has not done much spindle turning. He begins with an overview of the lathe and then moves onto the different chisels and how to use them. Don’t worry...

Thomas J MacDonald DVD Series Project 1 - The Toolbox

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...

Good Video for Beginners

Good Video for Beginners

02-16-2010 07:27 AM by johnnymo | 1 comment »

Recently bought this DVD at Woodworkers Source to help me improve my jointing and planing skills. There are a lot of helpful tips on the video. My favorite is how to mill out cupped, bowed, crooked and twisted boards. If your learning how to use a jointer and/or a planer this will be a helpful tool to have in your arsenal of knowledge. There are other DVD’s in this series that are for the tablesaw, bandsaw, lathe, and shaper. Good deal for $20.

Fine Woodworking Magazine Archives

Fine Woodworking Magazine Archives

03-06-2010 04:37 AM by Karson | 13 comments »

I had a change to test drive the Fine Woodworking DVD of the first 208 Issues of their magazine. It contains a PDF file of all 208 issues from Winter 1975 to the 208 issue in December 2009. The software loaded fairly fast on my computer, I’m not sure of the size but probably about 3 GB of space. Each of the individual issues are in a folder and they can be viewed with Adobe Reader and you can print etc the contents of the file. The front interface that runs when you click on the i...

Fundamentals of Inlay DVDs

Fundamentals of Inlay DVDs

08-23-2010 11:01 PM 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...

I bought this DVD about a year ago and have found it to be one of the best DVD I have viewed.This was made before Glen went full time with Popular Woodworking.It has over 3 1/2 hours of instruction plus many extras including step by step photos and complete plans.One of my favorite thing about Glen’s DVDs is he shows many ways to do the same procedure.He hand cuts dovetails,cuts them on the bandsaw,and with a jigsaw.Also some very nice finishing information.I used this DVD as the basis ...

So you think your a handplane expert

So you think your a handplane expert

10-05-2011 01:24 AM by WayneC | 11 comments »

This is a review of the DVD Bench planes by Jim Kingshott. Jim is a lifelong woodworker who comes from a line of wood workers going back many generations. This video is full of knowledge about how to use hand planes for bench work. The video starts out with Jim fetteling a modern #8 Bailey pattern plane. He explains the operation and adjustment of the plane in detail and sharpens the blade. He then moves on to a wooden jack plane and finally to a Norris Infil plane. He uses the va...

DVD - The Last Word On Sharpening  -  Review

DVD - The Last Word On Sharpening - Review

12-28-2011 01:01 PM by Nazair | 2 comments »

In his opening comments Christopher Schwarz states how confusing the subject of sharpening is to new woodworkers, and that so many different methods, products and options on the market make it worse. This was exactly how I felt. The ninety minutes he spends talking while hands on in this DVD have been a great addition to my other research. I’ve spent many an hour online and browsing different books on this subject. He doesn’t single out any one method, but comments on the good...

I just finished watching the two disc DVD set by Charles Neil . I own almost all of Charles DVD sets and thought having viewed Charles finishing A-Z beyond the books, a ten disc set ,full of great finishing info, that there would not be that much new for me to learn ,but as usual just when I think I have picked up all the know information Charles has to offer he brings all new ideas and details to light. Of course there was some review of how finishing works but there were also things not tou...
