Matthias Wandel

There’s always a minor tip or trick in every Matthias Wandel video. Mostly tool setup like this one. Check out the auxiliary guide block for the router table at the two-minute mark. That’s brilliant.

Mac Sheldon

The Pantorouter is such a versatile tool. What I want to highlight here is the auxiliary table used to turn it into a horizontal routing machine. I hope this can give you some ideas for homemade router table builds even if you don’t have a Pantorouter.

Pask Makes

This is fascinating. I had no idea inlays were previously done like this. After seeing it, it makes a lot of sense.

Dekay’s Crafts

A very nice portable saw station. While watching the video I thought the gas struts might be the week link. There’s no way it can hold a sheet of plywood. Then he proceeds to show it supporting a full sheet of plywood for a cut. Interesting and fun design.

Rob Scallon

Be sure to bookmark this one for when you have enough time to watch it all the way through. A musician brings the camera along for the entire build process of a classical guitar. Then gives us a show to hear it.

Walter Sorrells

Walter does a great job documenting this incredible belt grinder setup. While not targeted to woodworkers, it’s a wonderful tool for anyone in the maker world. Especially knife making. There’s a lot of great features with this machine. The interchangeable smaller wheels for sanding interior radii.

Josh Wright

Five gifts from a single 2×6. That’s an efficient use of material! There’s a bunch of safety comments on the video so let’s just focus on the projects and how they are made ;)

Chris Harpster

Chris utilized the wasted space above his garage door for out-of-the-way storage. I really like the use of threaded rods and connecting them to the joists above.

Stumpy Nubs

Pins first or tails first? Maybe the answer is to go half-blind with a dovetail router jig and do them both at the same time? I’ve always been a tails first fan when cutting them by hand. Here, James shows us an easy way to go pins first at the router table and then knock out the tails with a bandsaw or jigsaw.
