Turning Furniture Parts by Charles Neil

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...

 Turning Basics with Steve Shanesy - DVD Review

Turning Basics with Steve Shanesy - DVD Review

07-06-2009 08:11 PM 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...

Lyle Jamieson - Bowl Basics, The Easy Way

Lyle Jamieson - Bowl Basics, The Easy Way

03-18-2009 05:39 AM by Tim Dorcas | 4 comments »

Over the weekend, I get a e-mail notification from Wood Magazine that they have a new service where you can purchase and download video tutorials. You can find the service here. While this review is not about Iamplify, I would highly recommend it. While the price is the same as the DVD and the quality isn’t quite as high, there is something to discovering a tutorial you like and then being able to watch it 20 minutes later without having to go to the store or wait for the video to be de...

Great DVD's - Especially for those just starting out.

As one of the prizes for the Winter 2009 contest I received a pair of DVD sets fromPassion for Wood. I wanted to give them a quick review. For those just starting out, the DVD set on Jointer and Planer Secrets would be of great value.The jointer can be a tricky tool to master and Hendrik goes into great detail on the subject. You can save a lot of money buying rough lumber and this DVD will show you how to makeusable wood from it. All in all a great 4 1/2 hour, 2 DVD set. T...

Charles Neil The Magic of Routers

Charles Neil The Magic of Routers

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 ...

Fine woodworking Archive 1975-2008

Hey Gang I have subscribed to up to 12 different Magazines at one time and My favorite has been Finewoodworking.I know each woodworker has there own favorite . The truth of the matter is I have complete collections of Fine woodworking , Fine Home building , Wood , Woodsmith, and woodshop News plus a couple hundred books. If you think that takes up a lot of room your right. When they announced the were coming out with a complete collection of Fine Woodworking on DVD I was sceptical about ho...

Forgotten Hand Tools - DVD Review

Forgotten Hand Tools - DVD Review

10-25-2008 04:55 PM by Oscar | 2 comments »

This is a great DVD, although the title is, in my opinion, a little misleading. I would instead title this work, Forgotten Hand Tool Skills and Techniques. In this DVD, Schwarz focuses on three skills/techniques: (1) gimlets, hammers, and nails (i.e., using the correct type of nails as fasteners); (2) drawboring; and (3) handsawing (and using a shooting board). Schwarz discusses the history of each skill/technique and then explains the relevance of these skills/techniques to modern woodw...
