  1. Paul, this is such a wonderful project. I don’t think I need a “clothes airer”, but I will definitely make this at some point — maybe as a hallway table or something — after doing more of your projects, just because the joints are so beautiful and interesting.

    I’m curious, at around 26:40 or so, why did you turn the piece around in the vise? I know sometimes you do things differently for the camera than you’d do if the camera wasn’t there; even in this video you said you’d normally hammer the wedges on the floor, but for the cameras you did it in the vise. Why didn’t you use the rasp/file from the other direction, your left-to-right, but instead turned the piece in the vise? Was it for the camera, or technique? Thank you & your crew.

    • Hi Ted, Thank you for writing! Paul turns the piece so that he can easily work inwards from the edge with the rasp. If he’d kept going in the original direction, moving the rasp from the top of the curve to the edge of the section, he’d risk tearout on that edge. Instead, he moves in from the edge and up the curve.

      If you are looking for alternative uses for the Clothes Airer, Paul’s added a panel or two and has it set up as a pretty serviceable drawing board at the moment.

  2. Thanks Paul.

    I want to buy a rasp (I know I can use sand paper on a stick). What rasp number, size does Paul use in this video? If it matters, I will be getting one from Arriou to help support their business. I already have a flat file similar to what Paul is using. Thank you.

  3. I just saw that there is a preview for a new Master Class series. I will go back and rewatch the past couple of episodes but it seems as if the video to make the octagon knobs and attach the inner portion and the actual attachement of the inner drying frame were missing. Should there be one more video in this series?
