Feature Friday – DVD Review – Jointer and Planer Secrets by Hendrik Varju

November 15, 2007

This week’s feature friday is a special version of our normal DVD review. We had a chance to preview a great new title from Hendrik Varju “Jointer and Planer Secrets.” And what makes today’s episode so unique is that not only are we going to talk about the DVD, but we have an interview with the host too.

Hendrik Varju, an accomplished woodworker, author, teacher and now DVD producer and host has created this great DVD that doesn’t just highlight the proper use of both the jointer and the thickness planer. But instead walk you through everything you need to know to get the best results from them everytime you turn them on.

This 2 DVD set comes in at 4 1/2 hours, but just as the extended title suggests it’s a “Private Woodworking Instruction in a Box” it’s as if you’re actually in Hendrik’s shop taking a course with him. There’s no cut and paste editing here, everything is real time and the camera angles are in the right spot to make sure you don’t miss a thing.

Along with the discussion on proper jointer and planer techniques there’s an included bonus footage covering edge-gluing a solid wood panel. This DVD is a great buy and for anyone wanting to know more about the two most important tools for making your stock square and flat it’s well worth the look. Check it out at www.passionforwood.com
