Forgotten Hand Tools - DVD Review

Forgotten Hand Tools - DVD Review

2087 days ago 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...

Hands down the best Table Saw DVD out there.

Hands down the best Table Saw DVD out there.

2089 days ago by Mike Lingenfelter | 6 comments »

I reviewed Hendrik’s DVD (Jointer and Planer Secrets) a while ago and was very pleased with it. When Hendrik came out with a new DVD on Table Saws, I was very interested in getting. At first the price of $94.95 CDN, might seem a little high, but what you get makes it worth every penny. I really wish I had this DVD when I bought my first table saw! This is a 5 DVD set and it has almost 10 hours footage. As with his Jointer DVD set, Hendrik always focuses on safe operation of the t...

Master Woodworking Plans

Master Woodworking Plans

2101 days ago by disgruntled | 8 comments »

The online digital purchase of the Master Woodworking Plans turned out to be a great disappointment.Their website advertises in a very deceiving way plenty of wood working plans that in reality are just a collections of outside links to other websites in cyberspace where one has to sift through more ads to finally realize you can buy their plans. I was very disappointed since the same result can be achieved by searching in any search engine and leave this review so others might be able to r...

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

The Master Techniques of Marquetry

2153 days ago by SteveKorz | 7 comments »

I bought this DVD to gain a better understanding of Marquetry. I was very impressed with Silas Kopf’s methods of teaching his craft. Silas described multiple methods of marquetry and parquetry in his DVD. To watch him work gave me an exponential amount of knowledge. I don’t know that I would have obtained all that knowledge if I just read a book or looked at pictures. The back of the DVD case says: Silas Kopf demonstrates the most important ways marquetry and inlay have ...

another great DVD

another great DVD

2216 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 3 comments »

Another great DVD. this sugar chest DVD is jam packed with so much woodworking knowledge on the sugar chest that Charles Neil is passing on to us. It is a 4 DVD set and goes through every little detail. the good the bad and the ugly. it goes through everything from lumber selection, to milling, construction, and the finished product. As i stated earlier this DVD does really show the good, bad, and ugly. as Charles always says he’s going to show everything and even on a couple of small m...

Like we've come to expect, an A+ DVD!

Like we've come to expect, an A+ DVD!

2220 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 0 comments »

as the title states this is an A+ DVD. as we’ve some to expect it is very thorough also. one thing that the DVD talks about is lumber selection. about knots, working with them, the boards themselves, the grain and everything in between then preparing the lumber, and don’t get worried that it will all be big tools. Charles uses only a tablesaw and planner for most of the milling process. he also uses a drum sander but that can be substituted for a planer. then with all the...

One of the Most Helpful DVD's I've ever watched!!

2221 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

Charles Neil’s Finishing A – Z Beyond the Books is a DVD set that EVERY woodworker should have. it is packed with i think about 15 hours of finishing on 10 DVD’s and it is so thorough. the two whole DVDs are just on preparing for the finish and sanding and i thought that there wasn’t much to know about sanding and preparing to finish but after Charles goes through it i just thought wow. even on preparing for a finish i learned a lot. then there are three DVDs on ...
