Let’s start with some non-woodworking tinkering. I moved from Michigan to Mississippi between 9th and 10th grade, and in doing so, I was able to spend a few years of my youth tinkering with motors in my grandpa’s and uncle’s garage. This video brought back so many memories of figuring stuff out with the help of those around me before I had an unlimited supply of manuals, information, and video tutorials in my pocket (smartphone). Here he fixes a problem that was identified by the comment section just through audio.

Another plywood boat, and this one is a beauty. I like the size of it. Not too big that it requires a truck and trailer. But big enough for two comfortably and up to five situationally. I also like how a shallow water capsize demonstration was included. I’ve often wondered what would happen if most of these DIY boats turned over. No big deal for this one.

Wow. That’s the first word that comes to mind. Someone took the time to engineer and build an incredibly capable CNC machine in his shop. This build will be a tremendous asset for his workflow.

John Heisz – I Build It

Routers are like sockets. Get one for each task if possible. A router is arguably the most versatile tool in the woodshop. Not the most important, but versatile. You can do so much with them. Having a cordless one is a game changer. Especially handy for circle-cutting jigs where you don’t have to battle the cord. This circle-cutting jig is probably the most simple and easy to build of the options out there.

Matthias Wandel

I’m sure the majority of you are familiar with Matthias but do you know about his BigPrint program? I used it 9 years ago to recreate a horse-themed sitting bench. It’s a pretty useful and easy-to-use program. Here Matthias shows you how to use it. You don’t have to start in SketchUp with designing, though. When I used it, I was recreating a fire-damaged bench, so I took a picture of the original bench with a long ruler. Then imported that image and used the ruler to set the scale. BigPrint is a super handy tool to keep in your woodworking arsenal.

It would be awesome to get a deep dive video on this build, but I understand it was a quick spur of the moment video. Can you imagine how many man hours went into this conversion? And the best part is it is registered as an RV, so no CDL license is needed. I’d drive it :)
