1. Paul I am really enjoying this series, learning how to do “hand compound miters etc. They all ways imitated me but you make it look so easy, I think the key factor is take your time and work accurately like you do. I love it.

    I like that style and really want to build a couple and will be looking for some wood to build them. I also like the chisel marking of the parts as well.


  2. wonderful video as always. I think I have to find some mahogany to build this table. I find it to be so exciting as my accuracy progresses. Thank you to the team for this opportunity

  3. Accurate from the Latin Accūrātus
    To Care from the Latin Cūre
    I think Paul has mixed the two up abit haha….but it’s the point of being accurate that matters…I’m just nit picking….brilliant video series though…very informative.

    1. Your right, Richard. The forensic part explained by someone that can explain it is a unique and interesting experience. I didn’t expect to see a woodworker mark his pieces permanently using a stone mason’s method. But being the underside of a table it isn’t a problem.

    2. Yes I really love this project. Thank you for both the teaching and the insight into the past. It’s given me a lot more respect for woodworkers of old – those who did it for a living, this includes my late grandfather, who had a furniture business in Ipswich about 85 years ago.

  4. This video is another illustration of the virtue of a non flush fitting vice. Imagine assembling/disassembling the joints with a flush fitting vice. Experience does seem to outway the theory of certain workbench gurus.
