  1. just reached out and grabbed me!! I love fantasy and such, and am fascinated by anything to do with magic or magical creatures. Wow!! How I’d love to cycle through those enchanted places!

  2. Very nice video selection Jay.

    I wish I had that much space to dedicate to my miter saw; you really have created a beautiful and highly functional workstation.

    The hand-cut mortise vid really helped me understand the principals much better. And the author’s tips and advice are very insightful. I’m new to all of this, and I find your tutorial very valuable to my success. Thanks for all you do for the craft.

    All the best,
    Fred Cockfield
