My brother, my father, and I have a small cabinet shop. We’re trying to utilize our resources and thought perhaps making videos would be a good way to get more involved in the online community.
This is our first attempt at a how to video depicting a trestle table that we made recently for a client. Also there is a link to our video page incase you have trouble viewing it on the forum or you would like to check out our other videos. Feedback would be great because we are still very new at this, much appreciation in advance.

If that is you’re first attempt at a video I’d like to see some of them when you’ve had alot of practice. Great job on the table and bench and the video….........................Schloemoe

Awesome job on the video and the table. I’m trying to get up the nerver t obuild my first trestle and stumbled upon your post. Thank You, and good job.

One word of advice, wear safety glasses if you are going to film it. The guy routing the slot for the breadboard end had his ears covered, but not his eyes. (At least that’s what i saw)

thanks again – great job
