The Wood Whisperer

Here’s a tour of David Marks’ shop. He has some rather nice toys :)

Jon Peters Art & Home

I really like this idea as it keeps commonly used items out of the weather but still very accessible when outside.

Modern Builds

I love the energy Mike brings to his videos. This is a very simple project but a good learning experience for flattening a large slab.


Since finally giving one a try I’ve been a huge fan of scrapers. Here’s a good video showing some other uses for a card scraper.

Also from the same channel, another video on sharpening a card scraper. He’s got a couple super simple jigs to make the process more efficient.

Matt Lane

Matt does a good job narrating this one. I’m a big fan of well narrated videos as I myself am really horrible at narrating over video.

Wordsnwood (Art Mulder)

Adding a simple curve on the legs makes a big difference in the overall look. And the construction is much more simple than it may appear…

The Daniels Wood Land Show

The Wiggly Post!! Check this out. This would be pretty awesome technique for a table leg.

BearKat Wood

Here’s an interesting workbench.

David Marks

Have you ever wondered how ebony looks when it’s in the log state?

Bill Schenher

I recently borrowed my friend’s #80 cabinet scraper to clean up a dining table top and used this video to get the scraper perfectly sharp. Man what a useful tool.

John Heisz

I’ve never seen steel dovetails in this orientation before. Very unique joint.


Great craftsmanship as always from Guy. Also a very clever way of cutting the curved doors. Talk about a nerve-racking cut!


  1. Glad you posted this I actually hadn’t visited your page before. I’ve Just followed you on YouTube and Instagram.

  2. Hey Jay
    Yoes diding a greeeeeat job, I only wish I had the skill and ability to manke the thangs you guys does. Number one, the tools, I only make outdoor thangs and very little indoor thangs. I make outdoor furniture like garden thangs and padio thangs and thoas types itams, I have a large 8′ x10′ shop, the mail problem is, I have to take thangs out of it, to the yard, to be able to get inside. I really like your video’s and wish you all the luck to continue. If I had any extra money I would send it, but at 74, retired, on a fixed income, with the wife, I’m sorry.
    God Bless you, and your skill.

  3. Thanks jay. I always get a little something from these articles. There are some very creative people out there.

  4. I love these Jay, but I didn’t get a chance to review these over the weekend so I thought I would take a look this morning while eating breakfast at my desk. Now its 12:15 and I haven’t gotten any work done today.
