Here’s some absolutely beautiful streamlined work from Matthias Pliessnig.
I often get asked why kickback happened on certain situations or what recommendations I have to prevent any kickback. Here’s a good article with diagrams explaining why kickback happens. Even if you already know all of this it might be worth bookmarking to share with others who might not know. (click the image)
Here’s a channel you might not know about. Also, a beautiful, well thought-out modern desk.
This dude (Brian) is awesome. In this video he walks you through the process of making a custom, gorgeous hand saw. Definitely subscribe to this guy. You can see more pictures of the saws on his website here: http://bearkatwood.blogspot.com/2015/07/making-backsaw.html
During my recent trip to Atlanta, Georgia I had the opportunity to have a few really great conversations with Kyle. The guy is a rock star. Here he makes quick work of a custom tap handle.

This is part one of a two video series on making a tool cabinet. Part one covers the outside of the cabinet. Part two covers the inside.
I recently aquired a lathe and have already turned a few projects with it. Mostly just goofing off and getting familiar with the machine and tools. I had a slight concern for making precise segmented pieces for a segmented turning but then I saw this video… Assuming you have a proper template to set the sled to, this sled provides extremely accurate cuts.
A general rule in the shop is that if it’s not convenient you wont do it or use it. This setup looks very convenient. I have a similar setup but don’t use the guide. Definitely worth the look.
This guy woke up and said “lets turn something bigger than a pen today.”
Not much to this video but the machine looks pretty impressive :)
Man I’d love to give these guys a hand for an entire project. The end result looks soooooo nice. Imagine an entire shop built like this.
There isn’t an article or video for this but there’s a great set of pictures to give you some ideas. Modeled originally after the Beach Bum Livin wavy panel design that I based last year’s wooden cooler build on. Click the image for more pictures.

Here’s a great up-and-coming hand tool channel. This time he’s restoring a compass plane. A very interesting hand tool.
