« Part 15: Extension upgrade Part 16 of Shop stuff series Part 17: A trio of photo boxes »

I finally got around to putting some more woodworking footage together. I am enjoying using some hand tools, but the power tools are nice too. I am making a series of 3 boxes, sized to fit photos, for presents. These are preparing the top and bottom panels for them. I do lots of my initial work with hand tools. Breaking down the rough sizes and getting a clean edge to go up against the fence of the table saw. Maybe some day I will get good enough to do it all by hand, but flattening a whole face, particularly in ash, is a lot of work and I don’t have the time or material to experiment. I am using the BLO and Bees Wax for finish again. I love the way it makes the wood look. I don’t know how to embed the videos right into the blog posts. So if someone has a tip, that would be great.

I have added a warning to the video as there is an unsafe cut happening in there.
