In this Q&A video, I talk shaving horses, when to stop and sharpen your tools, and a bit about primary and secondary woods for your projects.
Contrary to what many of the woodworking books and magazines would have us all believe, not all of the furniture and cabinetry of old was built using dovetails and mortise and tenon joinery.
In this video, I discuss reference faces and edges, combination planes, dado planes, and rabbet planes.
In this video, I discuss making the fox wedged (or blind wedged) mortise & tenon.
In this video, I discuss miter shooting boards, including the traditional donkey’s ear. I also discuss making a miter joint with spline by hand.
In this video, I discuss using a frame saw for resawing, and planing the end grain of thick hardwood pieces.
In this video, I discuss drawboring a mortise & tenon, work holding for planing small stock, and hand sawing and planing veneer.
In this video I answer questions like “How flat is flat enough?”, “What angle do you hone a mortise chisel?”, and I talk about options for saw filing vises.
