« Part 2: Leigh FMT Jig - Part 1 Part 3 of Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests series Part 4: Tom's Domino at Work! »

Well, this is the second of the LEIGH FMT Jig videos. Again please excuse the ameteur quality. This is just my way of sharing a fun day in the shop while pushing my digital envelope, so to say. Things have been a bit hectic here so it was good to get some dedicated time in the shop. Many thanks to my wife for allowing this indulgance!

I thought a video post would be fun to explore since I have learned so much from my fellow woodworkers via digital imagery. I am not sure what I am going to do for the panels on these cherry chests. The original plan was the same as before, cherry plywood. However, Neil Lamens has me excited about exploring veneering, so I might try birdseye maple veneered panels. I think the constrast between the cherry and maple would be interesting. If you haven’t visited Neil at Furnitology Productions, it is worth a visit!

Thanks again to Martin fo such a great site! I have learned so much from all of my LJ buddies. LumberJocks is one of my essential shop tools!

Also, thanks to Marc and Matt – your sites have been inspirational to say the least and have encouraged me to push my digital envelope by publishing a video or two.

Anyone who has published a video, podcast or digital images will be amazed at how talented and prolific these guys are – I don’t know how you do it! Thanks!

I actually liked your description better than Leigh’s video. They had to pack alot of info into a short space and do it with a perfect world setting. I really liked it, David. Thanks for taking the time!
