Plane Collector

If you’re looking to restore an old hand plane or tool of any kind you should definitely subscribe to this channel. I’ve often wondered about how true the statement is that you need to have the frog and blade inserted when lapping the bottom of a plane…

You can tell this guy teaches for a living. The way he explains things is great. I have no need to sharpen jointer or planer knives but I really enjoyed his thought process.

I’ve never been a huge fan of t-track for the reasons he mentions. The new fence clamping design is a great improvement from the more common design you typically see.

Want to improve the dust collection on your table saw? Have you thought about making your own over arm dust collection hood? I like how he tells what he would do differently if he did it over again after the build.

I found this device to be pretty interesting. A good use of energy as well. The heat from the stove powers the fan to circulate heat from the stove. Brilliant.

Doucette and Wolfe Furniture Makers

An oldie but a goodie. Everyone needs a dose of Doucette and Wolfe inspiration occasionally. Here is the process of making a chair that is relatively simple in overall design yet has plenty of little subtleties that draw the eye’s attention. True craftsmanship.

The videos on this channel are all sped up to show the entire process of the build. I find them interesting not necessarily because I want to build the project he’s working on but it’s a great glimpse into a one man production shop. I often pick up little things here and there in regards to a certain technique or setup that makes batching out parts more efficient.

This has nothing to do with woodworking but it’s a fantastic reminder of the struggle creators have working with clients sometimes. I couldn’t help but smile through the entire video.
