Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.

Matt Risinger

Have you ever seen charred wood siding? Charring the wood actually increases the fire resistance of it.

Bobby Hammond

Another charred wood siding example. It definitely gives it a unique look.

Chris Tittiger

The extreme simplicity of this little caddy is nice.

Shop built

Another very nifty jig from Ryan. Well is it a jig?…a DIY jointer actually.

Bellevue Woodshop

Here’s some assembly table accessories to get some ideas from. I highly recommend an assembly table with all of the dog holes cut out like this. I made a few of those offset hole spacer blocks shortly after making my modified Paulk table and they really do come in handy.

Fletcher Handcrafted Guitars

This dude is great with a rasp.


Another great way to make leveling feet with hockey pucks. (click the image)

This is a great read. It might be worth it for you to bookmark it. I often get asked how to make a living woodworking. I’ve actually never made a living woodworking so I can’t give good advise. This is a great multi-part article on how to price your woodworking and make a profit. (click the image)

Cronkwright Woodshop

This is his first YouTube video and he does a good job of explaining how to hand cut dovetails. Good tips in this one. It’s a bit long though so grab a coffee.

Wood and Shop

Joshua’s dream woodworking shop is finished. Looks like a nice spacious place.


This dude has great style. I love the finishing method he shows. This is a great repurpose for an old piece of furniture.

Self Made

Having a problem with rust on your hand tools? This video is for you.


Free (well, after the initial materials purchase) heat for your shop in the winter time.


This guy’s got a great system for his camera. Have a relatively low ceiling? This might be for you.


    • Orange has been his main color ,kinda hard to change it this many years into it. I agree with Dave it just might be your screen settings. I have no problem reading it either.

  1. Hi Jay, thanks so much for your emails. I find them informative and enjoyable. Would love to spend a day in your shop bouncing ideas.
