Helenatold me about this video and was good enough to send me details. It is an excellent little video about a couple of people who make wooden toys or to be a little more exact, wooden puzzles. How they do it is beyond me but I know enough about woodworking to appreciate the superb skill that went into each and every item.I like the way that the lady compared these wooden puzzles with throwaway plastic goods. ( I know she didn’t come right out with it but that is how I interpred the remarks. I do hope that I have not totally misunderstood the message!) Unfortunately the audio isn’t the best but I will endeavour to fix that later.Have a look and see what you think!
At right is a video showing some of the activities being carried out at the club on Tuesday 10/4/12The committee at the beginning is in the process of building a boat......... I’m not sure about the details of the boat but I will ask & see if I can put the details here:
Having just bought a Kreg jigI thought that othersmight like a look at how the jig operates. So far I have found it to quick, simple and the joints are very strong. I suppose that the only problem is the large hole the joint leaves. There are a couple of ways that you can deal with this.•Buy some precut dowel plugs•use some dowel and insert into the hole and cut the end off with a flush cut saw•place the holes where they won’t be seenThe plastic box it comes in is junk but the rest of the items are very high quality. I have had a generic pocket hole jig for some years but the Kregmakes everything much easier.
