Locks can be a bit tricky to install well on boxes and cases. They typically require multiple mortises of varying depths, and things don’t always line up quite right. Measuring can work, but I find it best to use the lock itself to lay everything out. Here’s how.
Today, we have the Patron Extra podcast from November 2018. In this show, I talk a bit about my favorite woods to work with.

Today, we have the Patron Extra podcast from August 2018. In this show, I answer a question from a listener about coloring wood and preventing blotching.
Sticking with the saw theme, in today’s video I’ll do a little simple saw doctoring.

Today, we have the Patron Extra podcast from July 2018. In this show, I answer a question from a listener about restoring an old oil stone.
This is the introductory video to my Hand Saw Foundations course.
I recently built myself a couple of continental European style frame saws, also called bow saws. Rather than making my typical style video where I do lots of talking and explaining, I decided to just let the camera roll while I shut up and worked. So enjoy the silence.
I have never really understood all of the hesitation that folks have learning to sharpen their own hand saws. It’s no more difficult than learning to sharpen a plane iron or a chisel. All it takes is a small investment in some simple, inexpensive tools and a few minutes of practice.
My plan was to make the course live after I had all of the content created, edited and uploaded. Apparently, I goofed.
