Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.
Seth’s Project Woodworking
Calm, artistic story telling. Much more than a build. I love this video style as it feels like I’m listening to a story rather than simply “seeing what’s going on.” I’m looking forward to the rest of this tool cabinet.

Sampson Boat Co
Another great episode in this series. If you’ve never experienced a conversation with someone wielding that thick of a southern accent it can be difficult at times. This time he’s in Iron City, Georgia. Lots of little interesting tidbits in this one.

Regardless of how safe you think you are being, how long you’ve been using a saw, or what saw you have it never hurts to reintroduce this information. If you’re just starting in woodworking and watch this video and soak up as much info as you can.

Great engineering and thinking, as always, from Andrew. I can’t even count the number of times something like this would have been handy on my S-10.

Robots and AI are taking over our world. Sometimes it’s the simple designs that make a large impact. I was really drawn to the water ripple effect of this piece. Simple yet beautiful and eye catching.

Now this is some great thinking. A homemade metal cutoff saw from an angle grinder. Very well executed as well.

Get Hands Dirty
The complete creation of a quality in-house product made possible by the advancement of technology to bring small scale manufacturing (CNC) to small businesses. That sounds like a mouthfull but it pretty much sums it up. These notepads look so nice.

My Self Reliance
Another great episode off the grid. A great work ethic is highlighted in all of the videos on this channel. Also, remember to be safe when working alone. There’s a few overhead heavy lifting situations that can get sketchy real quick when you’re by yourself.

The simplest router circle jig just as he says it. Nothing more to say. I’ll be making one of these soon.

John Heisz – I Build It
An automatic load sensing switch is something that nearly all of us can benefit from. It doesn’t look that difficult to make as well.

Geothermal energy should be used a lot more often. I was first introduced to this heating/cooling technique years ago from this very same channel. Unique living situations and alternate energy always pull my attention.

This is an interesting one. I recently had an email conversation with Jeff Hadaway, the inventor of the Rip-it automated table saw fence. The Kickstarter campaign was launched a couple days ago. I’m really curious on your feedback. Check out the kickstarter information and tell us what you think of it in the comments below. (click the image)
