Tool Basics for Getting Started in Woodworking DVD

May 28, 20132 Comments

While I’m wrapping up the final editing on part 2 of the Teak Shoe Rack I keep thinking about other projects that are just as quick and easy to build. The nice thing about this project was that I really didn’t very many tools to complete it. In fact, it’s the kind of project that someone with a handful of basic tools could do just as easily.

It reminds me a lot of some of the projects from Popular Woodworking’s “I Can Do That!” series. If you’re not familiar with the series of projects, checkout the DVD “Tool Basics for Getting Started in Woodworking” at Shop Woodworking

    I’ve never seen anyone use a finger or thumb so close to the blade before. I’m not sure about that. It seems like there would be several other ways to guide the saw accurately and safely. Am I wrong? Is that the way I should have been doing it all along?

      I don’t think it’s wrong or right, but I can definitely see how it can help in guiding the saw. I can say for certain I’ve found myself doing something very similar at some point.
