Ian Kirby's "The Way to Woodwork" 3 DVD set is a big disappointment

Ian Kirby's "The Way to Woodwork" 3 DVD set is a big disappointment

880 days ago by dckchk | 5 comments »

I purchased the three DVD set “The Way to Woodwork” for use as a partial “instruction manual” for my grandsons to use with a full workshop that I have recently provided them. After reviewing all three videos in this set I must say I am very disappointed. I found the universal “critical path” description to be a sensible way to describe a basic woodworking methodology. However, as it is laid out in these DVD’s, it is not successfully developed. Fur...

Woodworkers Guild DVD

Woodworkers Guild DVD

1213 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 ...

Hal Taylor Instructional Rocking Chair DVD and Plans Rock!

Hal Taylor Instructional Rocking Chair DVD and Plans Rock!

857 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...

Handplane Basics - A Better Way to Use Bench Planes

1584 days ago by michaelray | 10 comments »

I’ve written a review of the DVD Handplane Basics – A Better Way to Use Bench Planes by Christopher Schwarz. I highly recommend this if you are interested in learning more about bench planes and their use. My high rating is also based on my experience with the customer service at Popular Woodworking’s Woodworker’s Bookshop. Check out my full review here on my personal blog. As I post this (3/20/10) I noticed that it’s currently on sale. Not sure how long th...

Back Issue Library

Back Issue Library

851 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 ...

Great DVD on the Jointer and Planer

Great DVD on the Jointer and Planer

2372 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 ...

1481 days ago by TheDane | 5 comments »

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...

Improper sales / marketing techniques

Improper sales / marketing techniques

879 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 ...

Thomas J MacDonald DVD Series Project 1 - The Toolbox

1656 days ago by Karson | 8 comments »

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...
