The Grain Doctor

Coring bowl blanks is one way to get a lot more yield out of a chunk of wood. This video showcases a jig that makes the process a lot more accurate.

So many tools nested perfectly side by side. This can increase working efficiency in just about any shop out there. And it doesn’t cost much to make.

Mike’s videos always have a lot of process tips and tricks. He’s a great craftsman and this nursery remodel has a lot to cover. Great job on the remodel, Mike.

Kobeomsuk furniture

I recently found this channel and shared one video from them a couple weeks ago. This video features another great piece. And I’m glad to not see epoxy in the “river” area once completed haha. Great piece of furniture.

Next Level Carpentry

A GREAT instructional video on making a set of stairs or a ladder. Overkill for its use? Yes. Information packed? Yes. I highly recommend checking out the rest of this channel for practical woodworking and construction education.

I’m definitely building one of these. Everyone can benefit from having a great sanding block like this in the shop. I like that it uses long lasting belts instead of hook and loop pads or sheets you need to cut.

One of the most appealing factors of woodworking is that you can literally create whatever you want. You’re not limited by what is available for purchase and what you make you will often cherish much more than what you purchase. Have you ever seen anyone hit a home run with a surf board? Woodbrew did it here :)

Can you imagine working in a shop like this all day? Part of me thinks it would be so much fun. The other part thinks the never ending lineshaft noise would be more annoying than a large dust collector. Either way, there’s a lot of great engineering to look at in this video.

  1. If people haven’t seen them (I don’t remember if you’ve featured it here before) people should check out Next Level Carpentry’s saw horses. The episode where he puts something like 12 tons on a pair of them is amazing.

  2. Okay, good job, Jay. I am going to build one of those tool organizers for a bunch of tools that do not already live on my organized tool wall. Thanks for the video suggestion.

  3. Kobeomusk is a wonderful channel. Have you had a look at Ishitani Furniture…? Also love Mr Chickadee – minimalist in that there’s no music, ads or voice-overs.

    Best aye!
