Runtime is a long one hour & fifty minutes chock full O’dovetails . That’s right I said chock full O’dovetails not to be confused with chock full O&...

FINISHING NIGHTMARES/AVOIDING & FIXING

FINISHING NIGHTMARES/AVOIDING & FIXING

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...

Quickest path to quality results

Quickest path to quality results

I have recently taken an interest in making wooden planes. I did the usual browsing around and found some free content with the basic ideas. I made a few planes based on some youtube videos and other articles. It went pretty smoothly. The problem is the planes sucked. While well constructed adjustment was always an issue and they required a lot of tinkering to get right. Then I happened upon Scott Meek and learned he produced a video on how he makes his smoothing plane. I purchased the dig...

CHARLES NEILS IT'S ALL ABOUT COLOR DVDs

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...

This DVD impressed me, where some of his others have not. I learned that I have been wasting time by failing to follow these methods, and I am eager to try them out to see what difference it will make. The 65 minutes covers hand planing, mortise and tenons, rabbets and fillisters, joinery and curved work, all employing the Coarse, Medium and Fine methods. From the DVD back cover: ”Most woodworking projects involve roughing, refining and finishing operations. In this DVD, Chr...

Like everything else I’ve ever read or seen from Chris Schwarz, this is chock full of practical advice and tricks, combined with a good bit of useful history. This video reviews some of the techniques used in ‘Course Medium and Fine’, but often takes the details a step or 2 deeper. Also, they differ in that this video generally assumes you begin with a board that’s been machine planed, and needs finishing. This video also covers the block plane extensively. Sharp...

Great video on saw sharpening

This afternoon I finished watching “Sharpening your handsaws with Ron Herman” on Shop Class on Demand from Popular Woodworking. It’s an online streaming version of the DVD of the same name. I enjoyed it so much and feel like I learned so much from it that I’m going to order a copy of the DVD to keep when my subscription runs out. Ron Herman is a traditional housewright in Columbus, OH, and the owner of Antiquity Builders. They specialize in period accurate home buil...
