I’ll admit that the art of kumiko is not for everyone. It’s the intricate angles on each individual piece, strategically placed, that make the assembly delicate and geometrically enticing. This table just looks gorgeous. The kumiko pattern is done so well that it’s almost like an optical illusion for me. My eyes just get stuck trying to see through it.

Quality channel here, folks. The textured technique used on some of these epoxy fly box lids looks so nice and artistic. It adds an aesthetic appearance resembling water flowing in a river. Also, it’s nice to see epoxy used on something other than a table ;)

Wood By Wright

Take a look at this massive restoration project. After watching this video, you cannot help but to wonder how wooden ships were built without power tools. I can’t anyway. A true craftsman era.

This is one of those “WOW” moments. Such a beautiful curved jewelry box made with great skill and many technical aspects. I love that he uses the beautiful tools he made :)

A useful insight to Bandsaw Boxes. Kenny gives tips all the way through especially early on regarding how and where to start your cut that gives a better glue line on reconstruction. Video is nearly 30 minutes but very well presented and interesting.

Eric shows a neat jig to convert your router into a tenon jig. I’m a little concerned with the stability of the platform but I love his outlook and creative thinking. He said in a comment on the video “As always, this add-on / jig is by no means perfect or complete. I always end up making a few tweaks after using it a few times. I built this, factoring-in weight, storage, ease of set-up and overall ease of use.” That’s a great mentality to have. So many people don’t get anything done for fear of messing up or failing. Continuous improvement is evident in his shop. Good stuff.

Mays Woodworking

I saw this video and was thinking…just a plywood box, right? Well yeah…but there’s more to it than that. It’s a simple box that ended up being pretty creative. A box that looks like a gift package. This would be a pretty neat gift by itself for a kid to enjoy. Creative work with the ribbon as well.

Harry Rogers

Sometimes it takes a village… Watch this group make a chair in one day, from felling to functional. There are some great tips throughout the video for the different processes for each component and the kicker: No power tools involved. The top comment on the video says “That David Dunk fella sure knows how to wield an axe.” And I couldn’t agree more. Talk about efficiency. This wasn’t his first rodeo…

  1. I’ve seen most of these but almost missed a few until I remembered how you look-out for the WW community with this service you provide. With everything else youy do, it’s a wonder you find the time to collect these and put together a YT video with some very good providers in it.
    Thank you brother for your dedication, craftsmanship and commitment to the community.

    • Thanks for the kind words, Eric. I’ve got a team of 3 people working with me to find these interesting links. It really narrows down the time needed for me to put together one of these articles.

  2. Great stuff again, Jay.
    The Ox is one of my all time favorites. The filmmakers did a series called Life’s Work that is along the same lines:

    Thanks again and keep up the great work!
