The production level in Doug’s videos is always top-notch. This design is very interesting and the contrast of sapele and maple looks so nice.

This is such a great read on the balance between utility and fine craftsmanship. I love his quote from the article: “These dovetails, which were clearly made by an accomplished craftsman intent on getting the job done, remind me that in the universe of making things, utility is no less worthy a goal than fine craft.” – Nancy Hiller (click the image)

Mario wall art? You can never go wrong making one of these. I met Ashley last year in Birmingham, AL, and saw her once again this year. Click the image to see her build on this Pixel Mario and to surf around her website a bit to check out her other projects. (click the image)

Make Something

Not your ordinary workshop indeed! The big controversy of putting carpet in a wood shop. I don’t think I’ll ever do it but I totally respect his reasons why. Having a sound and light controlled environment like that is something I can really appreciate.

Sculpting at a different scale. It was really nice to hear his explanation of what he sculpted. Great work!

A crosscut stop motion. It would be neat to put this in one of those LCD picture frames and have it play on loop in an office.

I’m not sure the original publication of this video but a look into an old way of doing things is always interesting. If someone knows the original source of this video please let me know.

Woah. Talk about a dense group of talent. The video is great, the pieces are interesting, and the conversations are interesting. This is a great look into a lot of fantastic woodworking. The resawing technique at about 19 and a half minutes in is great.
