Two new titles from Hendrik Varju

September 6, 2011

The end of summer means only one thing here in the Vanderlist household…BACK TO SCHOOL!!! And back to school doesn’t just apply to the kids. The cooler weather ahead tends to drive us in doors and that’s the perfect place to sit back and watch a couple of new DVD titles being released this week by Hendrik Varju of Passion for Wood.

If you’re not familiar with Hendrik already, you can take a listen to several of the episodes we recorded here previously. He’s a great teacher, an amazing craftsman and someone who is extremely detail oriented. All things that add up to the most information filled DVDs you’ll ever own.

The first of the two new DVDs being released is “Using and Tuning Your Bandsaw”.

In this must-have video, you will learn:* how to choose a bandsaw, if you don’t already own one or are considering an upgrade* how to inspect your bandsaw and find defects that are affecting its performance* all about machinery component .

    These look extremely informative, and Hendrik looks like he can do almost anything. I picked up his “Surface preparation and staining” one when I was redoing my kitchen and wanted to get some expert advice and was not disappointed. He’s a great expert to recommend and his DVDs are excellent quality, hopefully I get a chance to pick these up too. You’re right about the weather, it definitely does push us indoors.

    I just ordered 4 of his DVD sets about a week ago and as all his DVDs came out in September, I wondered if we would release two new DVD sets this year as well. I was really hoping for a router DVD from Hendrik … and here it is. Well … I guess I have to wait and see what Santa will bring me this year 🙂


    P.S.: I am really hoping for new episodes with Hendrik. I am still working my way through all the MBW episodes and was looking for Hendrik episodes the other day, because I really enjoy them (entertaining AND very informative) and could not find anything past episode 470 (November 2010). With the two new DVD sets out, wouldn’t this be a good opportunity to bring him back? 😉

    Bye the way: Thank you, Matt, for your huge commitment over the years and the huge collection of material you offer to fellow woodworkers. Your podcast has really helped me a lot.
