This video is my first project video I have made in my new shop. It is a little holder for a z touch plate and has made my life much easier and quickened my setup times.

Be aware also that this is my first attempt at producing an instructional video and it is a bit long. Feel free to skip about in the video as you see fit.

I love it. I’d love a video tour and info on your CNC and shop. Some would say that this isn’t real woodworking craftsmanship. I beg to differ, 200 years ago if you were seen using a table saw the same might be said. Just another tool as far as I’m concerned.

IMHO, the video is a bit to long. With some editing I would try for approx. 15 min. max.

Please keep the videos coming.

Thanks for the encouragement. I agree about the length of the video. My next one is shorter.

I also couldn’t agree more about the craftsmanship. Granted, it is different than doing things in the past, but it is fun in it’s own right and takes a great deal of skill to do correctly as well.
