How many of you can do this.

This guy is amazing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDfpl1_I904

Since Carloz has me blocked I’ll give my answer here.

The guy pretty good I give him lots of credit. Being round construction a lot of my life I’ll say there are quite a few professional house framers that can do that.

All techniques of a field carpenter.
I cut my teeth in the day as saw man for a siding crew, learned how to use a skil and radial and table saw on jobsite for all types of siding, did things with a skil saw that most wouldn’t believe.

This was in the midwest when i went to school there.

Here in phoenix, i owned a rather large framing company,
Taught the trade for years till i moved out of field and into office.
since have owned a GC company, mostly upper end remodeling, home building.

I’m amazed at the lack of skil on carpenters these days, but to their defense, have to say Osha, has fubared the construction industry till its literally a weined business.
Between tool and fall safety its become a pussy industry.

I’ve always tried to instill into new employees and their foremen, that safety is the most inportant issue we have.
If you don’t feel comfortable with what or how you do your job, speak up, you will either be taught how to do it, or moved to a position that doesn’t require that amount of risk or task. We didn’t need a gubermint agency to advise of us that, and or fine the living dog snot out of us, just IMO another agency making gubermint employees , politicians buying votes.

anyway, sorry for rant, between osha and epa, so many jobs have been lost in the States. And of course the land sharks (lawyers) , on liability issues.

It is amazing what you can do with a skil saw and a decent blade, my long time guys, are amazed at what i can do with a skil saw, and even more amazed at the real carpenter skill i have, I embraced the carpenter life in the early 70s, learning from two of the finest men i ever knew, they taught me so much, and since have learned much more.
its an awesome skil and life, hence my wood working, i try new tasks on regular basis, some are extremely successful, some so so, but never stop learning.

nice video, man has some skil, and knowledge, now if some of the younger folks would embrace it

I’d be interested to hear what he has to say about 18v circular saws these days. My Milwaukee 18v brushless DC 7-1/4” saw is an absolute joy to use. Even with the ridiculous 9.0Ah battery in it, it still weighs less than my basic Ridgid corded 7-1/4” direct-drive saw, and has as much if not more power. I don’t know how it stacks up to a worm-drive saw although as I understand they’re even heavier. But really, how much power do you need to cut through softwood lumber?

Calling me a D really hurt my feelings. Like bad hurt.

I am a shell of myself now.

But at least you can bank on carloz always being a D.

Well, it is a pretty good video of examples of how a framing carpenter can save time, which in that game, equals money.
He also qualifies his cuts when they are not cabinet quality.
If he teaches even one up and coming carpenter tricks that make that student more money, more power to him.
