Vlog 145: Normal vlog + A unique opportunity for you

Video Notes:

– The thumbnail for this video was auto generated from YouTube. Looks like I’m up to something though haha.
– To the veterans out there, thank you for your service. It’s much appreciated.
– The moxon vise video was to promote my friend Jonathan’s moxon vise templates: https://www.katzmoseswoodworking.com/new-products
– I’m going to make a “pimp my moxon vise” style video. Not the style of the Pimp My Ride MTV show but a video customizing the vise.
– Upcoming giveaway will be pretty cool :)
– Some other stuff. Is anyone even reading this?


  1. Oh heck yeah!! I already put in for my time off to make the trip for the router/ instruction! Great give away!
    And bits and bits has excellent customer service and great prices!

  2. That’s an awesome giveaway idea, Jay! I think the more knowledge that can be shared, the better! Oh, and I read and listened to the full video as well.

  3. Of course we read it. The only problem is it keeps us out of our own shops! Lol!
    And thanks for thanking us for our service!

  4. Timing is everything. I just ordered a Hybrid Pantorouter with all the bells and whistles. Not totally due to your cart video, I’ve been wanting one for years, but your video certainly played some part in the decision.

  5. Being a history buff myself, I’d love to hear (and see) how Duffy has incorporated woodworking into his passion. Also, glad to see you’re taking such an active part in your child’s development. Enjoy it while you can…it goes by extremely fast!

    • Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fast.

  6. If no one has said this to you today… You are one SWEETHEART of a man!! I truly enjoy following you’re website via YT. Realize that, your demeanor/ way of being on camera feels really personal. Your modesty is easily represented on screen. You little daughter is so amazingly adorable. Tell her, “ Toca Rivera, from JasonMraz band wishes you a very Happy belated Birthday! I tour in the Mississippi area and would love to tour and enjoy your company. I think it would be amazing to meet you. Keep pluggin’ away at your videos. I only started woodworking a year ago and still have lots to learn. I’m so happy your videos are available online to keep me creating not just music but ANYTHING WOOD….. Cheers My Brother!

    • Niiiiice. I’ll definitely tell her :) I just looked up your band on YT. Good stuff man. You just got another fan. Let me know next time you’re in central Mississippi!

  7. Hard not to read what you put down. Your Vlogs are always interesting to me. Would love to own YOUR panto router. Never too early to teach them; young minds are so malleable. Keep doing what you’re doing – love your enthusiasm. Thanks for the veteran shout-out.

  8. Wow! I could use a Panto Router setup. I make model train layouts for Model Train clubs to help get kids involved in something other than Drugs. Some get donated to clubs. Some clubs donate to get them done. Meaning I don’t get paid. I am looking to find tools to help cut my time in building these modular layout sections. I never win in give a ways. SO How do I find the Panto Router. I figure they must cost a lot for someone like me. Retired. Maybe they might have a payment plan? Other than the CNC. This is the first time I found a machine I can use to save me time to push them out to help kids. Any info I can get would be helpful. Thanks.

  9. Nothing gives me more joy than seeing you enjoying your daughter. All the woodworking aside, that’s gold dude.

  10. New woodworker here. Finally made those shaker style cabinet doors for the vanity that was missing a door. I need to remember to check my email when I see a new video up.
    Cool give a way for sure.
    Vietnam Air Force vet here.

  11. Oh yes, read every one of them. I loved that you left the drawer mistake in your video…makes me like less of an idiot.

  12. When I saw the thumbnail I said to myself he looks like a four year old that stole someones nose. Looking forward to the vise!

  13. Sounds like a bad ass giveaway. Any ideas on when, if it happens, you will host the winner? Is that something you will record and post on here? Keep up the awesome work brother!

  14. I tried to read it but I couldn’t find a braille font so I didn’t.

    Give a shout-out to your wife as well (for her service–I know you give her a lot for all the wifey stuff).

    WONDERFUL ideer about the giveaway; hope it works out that the winner can come pick it up, that would be an incredible experience!

  15. It seems to me the Pantorouter would have better precision for furniture making . Keep up the great videos and giveaways .

  16. I worked at a sawmill, it was amazing to see the river of water that flowed out if the kilns. Each kiln had 165k BF and there were five if them.

  17. Yes I read all your material and website. Watch your videos. Would love to come spend day with you and bring home a pantorouter and cart. Looking forward to when this give a way begins.

  18. Nope. Not reading a thing. I’m too busy using these really nifty nesting chair templates I bought from a Youtuber. You might have heard of him. :)

  19. I was married in Pontotoc, MS 45 years ago. I think it is a native name.
    I love how you light up around your daughter.

  20. I’ve have always been fascinated with the use of pantorouters in some of the videos that I’ve seen. It’s kind of blows my mind with everything that can be done with them. Excited to see your upcoming videos. Your daughter is so beautiful. It’s crazy how fast they grow. I have a 3.5 year old daughter but it still seems like my wife and I were bringing her home like a couple months ago.

  21. I’m definitely entering my name for this. I’d drive the +/- 7hrs from GA to spend the day or part-day with you in the shop. Getting a Pantorouter on top of that would just be icing on the cake~!
    Jay, you’re a jewel of a guy~!

    • How is it confusing? 2 days ago I mentioned I am delaying the next giveaway and will be doing an “end of 2019” giveaway. I haven’t announced it yet. In the mean time, know that you can always use the search function on this website to see if something has been posted :)

  22. I have an early tilting table pantorouter that i found on ebay. I have contacted the ditributer in the UK about up dating it to the latest spec but they did not seem too interested. I would be interested in an article or video on the upgrades you perform.
    I used to watch your channel on you tube and am still subscribed but your channel but pantorouter videos just popped up on my feed.
    Glad to have rediscovered your videos.

  23. “Royally” great stuff. I have Matthias plans to make a pantorouter, but would rather win one and woodwork! Love what you said about your 13 month old… Have a 1 year old foster soon who changes every day!
