Interesting Stuff From Around The Web #193 – November 18, 2017

Every week I like to share a few things I find interesting. Mostly video content with an occasional website article. All of the content you will find in these posts is free to you. Remember that liking, subscribing, or sharing free content goes a long way in helping produce more free content. If you like that creator’s work, share it! Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.

You might heard the saying “all I want is a cabin in the woods…with WiFi.” There are a few instances where I’d opt for no WiFi. This is one of them. Such a relaxing video and a great conversation a little more than half way through.

An interesting way to divide up a room. What do you think about breaking up the room with a center piece like this?

Popular Woodworking

I recently did a little power carving on a seat with a few friends. This video shows a little more precise way of carving a seat. Very clever jig.

Kyle finishes a previous project in this one. The birdseye gain on this piece is insane.

This video has beem shared so much with woodworkers over the past week so you might have already seen it. Timothy designed a very interesting shop cart. A true representation of the words multi function. Incredible design.

ZH Fabrications

Zach and a handful of other talented individuals were invited to Fabtech 2017. They all completed something while there. This one was my favorite. If you aren’t already subscribed to Zach definitely check out his channel. I met him in Skiatook this year. Great dude with skills.

Sometimes I randomly drop the information bomb on my wife and tell her a little piece of interesting information that she could probably live the rest of her life without knowing. She always asks “how do you know this stuff?” This is one of those videos that adds to that information bank of random knowledge.

  1. As always great picks from around the world…
    Just one little point. It’s Ishitani furniture.. ????????????????

  2. Kigumi Ishitani is quite the impressive woodworker, but what makes is videos most interesting is the style in which they are shot and edited. Great combination of talent, effort, results, and time….kind of like Jay’s site, channels, and work.

    NuSensei is a very good channel from which to learn A LOT about archery. I started down that trail…and then ran into Paul Sellers, Marc Spagnuolo, and Jay Bates…and archery is almost history. LOL

  3. as always, great picks, enjoyed it very much as al previous ones, thanks, you got me hooked on the total boat building, bow shooting, log cabin building …… oh no was already building one

    oh sorry … eh my website is in Dutch …. but if you have any questions ….. go ahead an I’ll be pleased to answer them

    Please keep up the great work
