Those FWW video workshops of the last couple of years or so have been very high quality, both technically and in terms of the amount & detail of information given about design, joinery and tool use. But ….. how often are we to get a new one?
The last full-blown workshop video seems to have been the Pekovitch small cabinet item from December 2019. There’s been a very useful P Edwards one (to me at least) recently about hammer veneering and hide glue but it didn’t have the depth of the full-blown make-a-thing videos.
My personal ideal would be a workshop video like the Chris Gochnour Enfield cabinet series in which only hand tools were used albeit on pre-prepared parts which were possibly from jointer, planer and table saw. Nevertheless, I learnt many things about hand tool techniques from that series; and a bit of joinery.
So I would like another please. Let it be about a veneered item (part-veneered at least) with perhaps some stringing & banding included, using hand tools. Alternatively, how about a hand tool only Arts & Crafts item inclusive of things like wedged through tenons, butterfly inlaid “tenons” on a top, simple carved edges and so forth?
FWW has access to many excellent woodworkers, some of whom are good at the presentation as well. To me as a Limey, some of the presenter’s accents are also attractive … and some not. I could listen to Chris Gochnour drawl all day. Throaty-burr talkers …. not so much. Lads with Southern States accents are often a pleasure to listen to (e.g. Doug Stowe, Brian Boggs) …… .
Get on with it then! 🙂
