I really like your videos Jord. Well detailed instruction. The pencil hold-down stick is inspired!

But really…I have to ask. Something seems to be missing. Oh yeah…did you get your hair caught in a saw? Haha!

Thanks steve, really appreciate it!

Yeah the hair… That was a spare of the moment thing, but luckily no accidents here, mind you there was a couple of times there that were too close for comfort with sanders and things!

Nice video Jordan. I liked the rubber band idea and the way you did the box bottom. You are a talented young man. Just don’t let Steve corrupt you!

Hi Jord,

thank you for the Video! First i thought it could be boring, just a little box. But your methods and tips are fine and i think now i understood how i get the grain along the side of the box to look perfect.
Have a good time!
