You have to love that second, where the oil hits the wood, magical. Makes it all worth it.

Nice board, nice video.

I caught your shoulder plane video too. loved that.

That’s really great! Nice work! The grain match on the maple makes it even better. I don’t know that I could offer suggestions on your process or design except you ought to tell everyone how you edit your videos because you’re very good at it.

One question though although it may be too simple. When you were ripping down the strips, you used a 2nd board instead of the table saw fence. Was that easier to set your width or better for video? I’m curious on why you used that technique.

thanks for posting

Hey thanks for your comments, the reason for using a second board is because when you’re cutting thin strips it avoids getting the strips stuck between the blade and the fence, making it safer. There’s a little lip on the board to push the steps along. If you have time please subscribe to my channel, for all the latest updates smash the notify bell.
