I'd vote for both projects, if possible. More work for you I'm sure though. It'd be nice to see it done the way you did the box videos, a simpler one and a more complicated one. Then again they both look pretty involved.
A big thumbs up for either one though. Love the Krenov inspired look, my favorite style. I'm also very interested in the curvy front veneer work.
Interesting to hear your comments on pocket screws. Regarding durability, I find that employing pocket screws with glue produces a very sturdy long time joint, and the screws first serve as clamps then as an additional sort of tenon to increase strength. Am I wrong?
i would say lets built them both (matching pieces ) would look nice in may place
Design #2 would make a great place to store part of my vintage plane collection, and perhaps my old pocket screw jigs. I understand pocket screw technology goes back at least three hundred years, and I'd bet some of those pockety pieces still survive. I enjoy listening to your podcasts, although my wife prefers I wear headphones while listening, but then wants to know why I break out laughing so often. She's not a woodworker.
Hello guys, my vote is for number 2. Like the more modern lines. What about the size?
Antondeg: You don't need iTunes to listen to the podcast. Just click on the red "Listen to the Podcast" link and you can stream it right through the browser.
My vote is for design #1. Something about #2 doesn't jive with me. Perhaps it's because there are less places for hiding stuff....if I happen to move to California....for medical reasons. ;-)
Another great Podcast, guys!
I am not sure who looks after your website but it a real pain to use on a mobile browser. The fancy bar that should be at the bottom is always in the middle and it covers the "Listen to podcast" link so this page is useless. Not very friendly for something that is meant to be used on a mobile device.
Hopefully you can get that fixed, but as it has been like that for ages I am not very hopeful.
As I mentioned before what happened to the videos, was there not a need because I have not listened to them since you stopped doing the videos.
What about other distribution channels other than iTunes not everyone uses Apple products.
Making things easier to use and getting it onto more channels will help in spreading the good work.
Haven't listened in yet, but I like design sketch #2. It's a bit more modern which is what I'd like to see more of.
For Matt's new video series, I vote for the vertical design..:>) Less of a dust collector. More of an opportunity to showcase some nice veneer or solid wood on the doors and drawer fronts. Even an opportunity for a bit of marquetry in them..
Go on a lumber run with Matt Kenney and he'll show you how he reads a stack of lumber to help him find the perfect board
Fast, fun approach to making a comfortable, casual seat
In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.
In this video Michael starts work on the second box, a carved and painted Saddle lid box.
Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
