Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.
Breakwater Studios Ltd.
Vimeo; the land of artistic videos. This video has so much story and so much art, both in video and physical form.
Another joint venture video from Dorian. I can’t help but think of Atari when looking at the completed joint. It would also make an interesting detail for adding a workbench end cap piece.

Do you prefer Western or Eastern style hand tools? Push or pull? I prefer Western saws but still find value in keeping a pull saw in the arsenal. I might pick up one of these inexpensive Japanese planes and have a go at it.

I found this video while researching Hovarter vises. They are interesting quick release vises but I wanted to share this video specifically for the mobile base setup. Interesting workbench.

A good, sturdy lathe cabinet. Built to last forever. I really like how the drawer pulls turned out. The whole piece has a really modern industrial look that works well in this design.

David a period 18th century furniture maker who’s not only making crazy beautiful pieces of furniture but he’s sharing his process through his videos. His videos don’t contain any fancy editing (I say that respectfully) and instead just focus on time spent making furniture. If you’re into high-end furniture and enjoy the “shop work” style of videos be sure to subscribe to his channel and check out his previous projects. Nothing but quality work.

I’ve previously shared videos of his specifically to show his top side table saw dust collection. This is a video all about the setup and he does have plans available.

William showing how easy it is to get a very precise setup. This is by far the best presentation I’ve seen at making a flawless miter sled.
