In case there are a few Lumberjocks who don’t frequent my personal blog I thought I’d post this little video I did here so you can see it.

A few weeks ago I filmed Geoffrey Noden at The Woodworking Show in Reading, PA. Unfortunately, his booth wasn’t too far from the Woodmiser booth which means you could barely hear him during the interview.
Consequently, I trekked over to Trenton and caught up with Geoffrey in his shop where the noise was a bit less. I hope you enjoy the interview.

Our very own Karson gave a preview of this tool in his blog and SPalm posted his homemade version of Geoffrey’s Noden Inlay Razor. It’s a great tool that I think has lots of potential uses.

At some point on my personal blog I may post a longer version of the video which goes into greater detail of how this thing works. Until then, I hope you enjoy this “shorter” (only about 10 minutes) video.

Chuck Great video, I’m glad that he is getting close to getting it into a saleable item.

Yea Geoffrey! That is such a cool tool. I can attest that it is a lot of fun. Here is a simple cheese slicer that I made in record time. It was a kick.

Geoffrey has his site set up for the Inlay Razor. He has a bunch of Razors just about ready to ship. I think they’re waiting on the DVD production company to wrap up duplication of their videos. Once the videos are in, the Razors will start to ship. I think Geoff was saying the Razors would be shipping in the next couple of weeks or so.

Steve, You bringing that cheese slicer to Chantilly?

Matt, I’m not saying I am and I’m not saying I’m not…

Fred, You’re welcome to come give mine a try :)

Karson, Thanks and I hope to see you and David too. I hope he’s practicing his dovetails.
