This has got to be one of the easiest ways to make quick bar/parallel clamps. Wedges are so simple and so useful.

An interesting quick release drill press vise. The sliding stop block in back is pretty neat.

Measured Workshop

At first glance, the shape intrigued me and had to find out what is was. One of the more unique wooden instruments I’ve seen made on the YouTubes. I love how pronounced the higher tones are.

Lichtenberg figures create an organic vein look in wood that resembles a leafless tree. Adding it to a sculpture makes it look much more interesting. His controlled technique is good to watch as well.

Pedulla Studio

Such a large capacity jointer at the beginning :) I like his use of a template for the offset glue up. I’m not sure what’s more exciting, seeing the shape come to life or seeing all that beautiful walnut come to life with the finish.

A handy jig for any woodworker with a table saw. I like is over the fence push stick as well. Interesting stuff.

A very interesting Hidden Locked Dovetail Joint. Only woodworkers will appreciate this one. Nobody else can see what we see ;)

Torsion box workbench top. Especially like the idea of a dust collection system built into the torsion box. And that scissor lift table….I need to find an estate sale…. and a bigger shop.

More great craftsmanship from Jon. Here he makes picture frame while walking you through some custom mouldings. Stacking simple profiles makes easy work of complex shapes. Also, I love the colors he chose for the frames to accent the artwork. Great job as always, Jon.

  1. Izzy Swan’s clamps are awesome! I’ve watched many DIY bar clamp videos, and this is the simplest build yet. Why make something more complex than it needs to be?
