A New Video!
I am excited to get out another video. They take a lot of time to create and, thankfully, I have been busy this summer with my business but it hampers my ability to make videos!
I am advancing in my skills and you will notice that I added photos documentary-style in this video (I love the Ken Burns effect.)
Some Thoughts on Design and Construction
The most difficult part of making furniture is creating the design. I share some of the thought process for creating my Shaker inspired bench.
I also share a little about the construction of this beautiful piece of furniture. Some woodworkers may wonder what joinery is acceptable or taboo in their project, it will surprise many woodworkers what type of joinery I used in this bench.
There is some construction technique covered here, but it is not as much of a “how to” video, as it is a video that shares some of the principles that I considered when creating this bench.
I hope that the thoughts and techniques shared in this video will help other woodworkers with the design and construction of their projects.
Share the Love~Share the Knowledge
