This is my first attempt at making a YouTube video. It is highlights of my OSB rocker build that I posted earlier this year. Here is the link: I have been wanting to learn how to make and post videos for a while. All comments and constructive criticisms welcome. Thanks for watching.

Lee, nice work on the chair and the video.
Although the last 1:30 of the video was blank for me.
I have been working on a hardwood cole rocker for the last month. I have the rough shaping done, now I need to get motivated to finish all the sanding.

To embed your video in the post click the “share” tab in youtube and then tick the “use old embed code” box.

That is still amazing. And, yes, what Scott said.

Just checked out your video. Great shots, good music. clever but too many transitions? Does your software allow for written commentary? The first part was organized and I followed along. the mid to later part was loosing me.

Great first posting!

The chair provoked many build ideas.

Very nice, Lee, but I agree with you on too many DIFFERENT types of transitions.

I remember my first boss saying, “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.” :)

The chair is complex enough without adding complex transitions.

The music selection is excellent! That’s tough to get right, and I think you nailed it.

What software did you use? I’m still a fan of Windows Movie Maker 2.6.

Scott, thanks for the advice. I am going to print it out so I have it as a reference. I don’t know why the clip ran blank for another minute or so. Perhaps I did something wrong on the timeline. I am really looking forward to you posting your Cole rocker. I’ll bet it is awesome.

Roger, always glad to get your comments.

Doc, I agree some of the shots should have been rotated to make better sense of what I was doing. I was using Windows Movie Maker and as far as I can tell the only text they allow is overlaid on the pictures.

Thanks Tony, I have had many people ask if I would build them one. If they only knew how much time was involved….. Every person who has set in it thinks it was custom made for them.

Jim, thanks for the kind words. The rocker is truly unique and quite the conversation piece.

John, you are right there were too many transitions but I was like a kid in a candy store and tried one of everything. The music selection took a long time to decide on. You wouldn’t think it would be that hard. I did use Windows Movie Maker 2.6 but it is new to me and I am a slow learner :).
