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.
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 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.

The Wiggly Post!! Check this out. This would be pretty awesome technique for a table leg.
Here’s an interesting workbench.
Have you ever wondered how ebony looks when it’s in the log state?
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.
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!
