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

The ShavingWood Workshop

A quick and easy jig for raised panels on the table saw. Could also be used for tenons.

April Wilkerson

Here’s a handy hardware storage solution from April. The french cleat hardware bins look pretty convenient.

Frank Howarth

Frank’s videos are always top-notch. I love how he builds his own audio instead of using the in camera audio at times.

Guenter Mik

A German (I think) video showing close up planing in different situations. This might give a better understanding of why you see tearout sometimes when using a plane.

Norner Houtbewerking

A 630 pound 13+ foot long bench for the entrance hall of an apartment complex. This is one huge bench and the finished product looks great.

Shop built

This might be a good solution for smaller tool dust collection. His blast gates are great.

Wood By Wright

A great video showing the process of making a beautiful smoothing plane by hand. Very beautiful plane.


I always recommend getting a planer before a jointer. A jointer cannot be used as a planer but a planer can be used as a jointer. Here’s how.

Saw Dust Maker

A hardware shop helper. This concept is good for anyone with a scrap hardware bin.

Graham Haydon

Graham is starting a series showing how to make his workbench out of basic hand tools. Here’s part 1.


  1. these are neat ideas, but the screws and other hardware I keep in a separate container by size, so I really don’t have a junk can, good idea though. By the way, Jay’s emails and website, are among my flavorite’s. He really comes up with good ideas, I do wish he would have more outdoor items like patio furniture, garden carts and like items, as this is what I like to build.
