I was browsing Youtube for woodworking and I came across the following series of videos with several methods to joint wood. I thought it might be of interest to some, in particular those that like using hand tools. Enjoy:

Pretty neat stuff. For a moment I thought you linked to this educational collaboration that I found some time ago:

I totally admire the craftsmanship involved in those videos BUT I’m pretty sure I’m sticking with my electric tools.

Pretty cool. Some random thoughts.

  • In the beginning Am I playing tetris?
  • Later I have to re-think how I will build my work bench.
  • Finaly I’m going to need a bigger mallet

Thanks for sharing I enjoyed it.
