i noticed you need a RAS. crosscutting work pieces on the floor with a circular saw is a little too much like real work for me.

Fun video! Makes you realize how much time it takes to size 4/4 wood bought in the rough. I didn’t see the odd thing, I was too busy watching your methods and drooling on your shop floor.

I’m jealous of your Bessy clamps. I don’t know why I didn’t pop for those instead of 3/4 pipe clamps. nice.

random thoughts: I use a 6 or 8” wood clamps for the ends instead of grip vises to ensure alignment and to keep it straight. Also, I noticed you orbit sanded the glue joints which probably took forever and I wondered if you couldn’t have run the panels through a planer and then cut to length to remove any snipe? Were they too wide?

BTW – You could have set up a sheet of plywood on horses to make all those end cuts. I can say, you won’t be doing that when your 57. made my back hurt just watching you crawl around in high speed!.... Ha!

I use to use a roller out feed like that until one time it kicked sideways a little, right in the middle of cutting a large panel and it rolled the panel to the right and almost bit me. I switched to one that had ball bearings on top and a heavier stand – big difference! I eventually bought the delta out feed table for my Unisaw which folds down for small work. I love it except it tends to turn in to a work bench I have to clear to use the saw. It looks like your rolling work station is the right height for an out feed table.

that is definitely one nice shop. Thanks for the cool video.

Kaleb was quick to catch the hat changes.

@coachmancuso, the timelapse was recorded over weeks … capturing 67000 images captured at 1 every 2 seconds for a total of 35 hours of footage. I then selectively edited the footage and compressed time further to fill the music clip I had. So the amount of real time shown during the 3.5 minutes is about 3.5 hours. :)

@reedwood, I have many 3/4 pipe clamps, but just got a good deal on the jorgensen clamps. My glue joints were actually pretty good and needed very little sanding and most of the panels were wider than my 13” jointer.
Actually I have a bad back, but I find that giving it a careful workout helps.

Next time, I will probably just find some quality plywood :)

Thanks for watching guys and gals!

Very fun video. I’ve done a time lapse marquetry assembly and an animation and stopped short of adding music because of copyright issues. Can I ask where you got the music? Did you or a friend record it especially for the video?
I got a copyright notice from YouTube for just distant background radio music on a French polish video I did.

You achieved a great effect with this, thanks for posting.

Great question! I too have gotten notices from youtube in the past for Final cut pro music which was totally royalty free, but the music was still part of youtube robotic music detection, so rather than argue, I just stopped using music. HOWEVER, youtube recently started provided music that they say IS free to use. You can find it under your youtube video manager, under “creation tools”. The selection is somewhat limited, but its there :)

Thanks Alan.
Have a look at this and you can see how badly it needs music.
It was a lot of fun and surprisingly easy. I will likely do more so thanks again for this answer.

Hey, slow down; smell the flowers; take a break. It makes no sense to work yourself to death like that. Besides, your bound to cut a few fingers off sooner or later.

nice video.
