    That’s going to be one sturdy coffee table. Might last a few hundred years 🙂 Looking great.

    Great Job! Excellent illustration of productive craftsmanship. I love seeing jigs and shop fixtures created but furniture is the goal of all of that ‘busy’ness and it is great to see it all come together this way.

    I think this will greatly improve the quality of my projects. I realized, watching the ease of this dry fit, that the function of the mortise jig in keeping the mortises 90* is my biggest gain here.

    Another great video and again, new tricks at least for me were introduced. I am really enjoying these videos. I have to get some more of those HF clamps for sure.

    Thanks Guy’s !

    I was amazed to see how Paul uses the.card scraper! I have never seen it used with the Palm of the hand. Everyone always shows using your thumbs to bend the blade which results in fair amount of pain. I am certain this method will definitely save your thumbs quite a bit. Thanks guys!

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I like how Paul has reenforced those cheep aluminum bar cramps with pine cauls.
