That looks like a real router at the 5:42 mark

Right at the start, maybe 1:20 did anyone notice the thickness of the plies on that plywood. Ahhhhhhh, gone are the days of real plies. Plus you have to figure for deck sheathing that is CDX. Not to mention not a crack, hole, or patch on the outer veneer. :-)

That’s a great video. I am going to have to share that with the neighbor’s kid that is coming over during the summer to learn woodwork from me. That, and It didn’t have to happen

That was a nice, short video. I was looking for a DeWalt radial arm saw on the jobsite, but I’m guessing that would be more likely found at a mill or lumber yard. I certainly wouldn’t consider them as portable saws.

ETA: I did notice the thick ply in the center of the plywood. Big difference from today’s plywood.

@ the 4:17 mark
I remember when I first started building kitchens, the slide in cutting boards were a standard item.
Not any more.
Interesting to watch the olden days, Thanks AG
