Interesting Stuff From Around The Web #111 – December 26, 2015

Every week I like to share a few things I find interesting. Mostly video content with an occasional website article. All of the content you will find in these posts is free to you. Remember that liking, subscribing, or sharing free content goes a long way in helping produce more free content. If you like that creator’s work, share it! Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.

Crazy simple scrap wood project for organizing sandpaper. I need to make a few of these for hardware bins. I think a few of these three bin trays for hardware would be more convenient to make and serve the same purpose as a bunch of individual bins. (click the image)


Like usual with guy’s projects, this table is turning out great. I love the way the faux inlay looks. Very nice.

Mark Susak

I love to see new people getting starting to record their projects. Very good production. Quite surprised that this is his first video.

Boris Beaulant

Here’s a very interesting stool design with a pair of exposed joint types.


Last week I shared a screw advanced box joint jig and then made a thumb lever advanced box joint jig myself. Here’s another box joint jig….but the most simple form this time. Just trying to present some options for ya :)

This turned out to be quite the multi-function cart. I wonder how hard it is to move!

Stephen Ogle

I never would have thought to use a fan motor for this. Here’s an easy DIY approach to sharpening woodturning tools…or anything that needs a sharp edge actually.

John Heisz

Not only is the project clever and well done but the video production is top notch. I really enjoy seeing individuals make high quality content like this. Goes to show that you don’t need a company with a full production crew to make quality content these days. Another example of why TV is slowly dying.

This is a glimpse inside of a big swedish sawmill.

Robert Merz

Another interesting saw setup. This time powered by a 1924 model T. Not something you see every day.

Vaagen Brothers Lumber

Small personal video drones have really changed the way ariel and long panning shots are made these days. Here’s a fly through video through a sawmill. Quite an example of engineering!


While we’re on the subject of the woodworking industry life check out this look into making some Two Cherries chisels.


  1. That Merz buzz saw looks wildly unsafe, but the hillbilly in me wants to try it! Love these posts Jay. It feels like you are my own personal youtube assistant finding me good stuff to watch! Ha!

  2. Ha ha… thanks Jay.. yup.. those cheap casters I used were not very good.. it’s hard to move.. but luckily, I don’t need to move it regularly.. I learned my lesson. NEXT time I’ll spend the extra money for good casters..

  3. Amazing the Vaagen Bros sawmill is where I worked for a while. It’s about 40 minutes north of where I live now. That place is absolutely amazing. That saw is so amazingly fast that it just makes your head spin with how fast it turns out lumber. The view from the log crane is a sight for sure, especially when the log yard is completely full. The logs get stacked just underneath where the grapple is.
    If you ever get to Colville, WA this is a place that is definitely worth seeing.
    Happy New Year!
    Great job on your videos, Jay!
