Phil, is right of course. Thanks Phil for the great tip on marking and cutting tenons. I could never get my dado set to cut absolutely perfectly and it would frustrate me to no end. Now I can get them perfect every single time with ease. Your workbench video is loaded with essentials that are presented beautifully. Great job !!!! You are a fantastic teacher and keep the vids coming please.
Damn that was funny! Tims got mad skills.
Whoa ! Hot topic Hot topic.
If your woodworking is a contest then yeah maybe its cheating if the rules dont allow jigs For most its just a way to relax and if using jigs helps you to relax and decrease frustration then gord ahead. When you cut a 45 degree haunch on a tenon some people may cut them by eye. I think it is smart to use a block that you know is 45 degrees.
While I dont think it is necc to use a block to cut dovetails (I undercut them slightly anyway) I certainly dont think the woodworking gods would dissaprove anyhow.
Woodworking is a hobby for most... a pleasure to be enjoyed. Leave the egos to the pros and just do the best you can and HAVE FUN!
Ya got me.
I just watched the series and was quite impressed. You dont see the described detail very often. Lots of great tips on layout precision and fantastic knife hinge tutorial. Awesome job !!!
Great video series. I cant wait to test his techniques.
