1. You have done a nice job choosing where to speed up and where to spend more time. Nice work with the video editing. Seems like you could have put a pencil line across the face of the board at one end that would keep the board oriented as you split? Or would that just confuse things more later?

  2. It may just be me that feels this way, but maybe it was kind of a skimpy week? I feel as though Paul should have at least included the fitting of the spindles on this video. It feels like we were shorted a little bit to give an extra week for production, or am I just expecting too much? These are still videos filmed at The castle facility, aren’t they? So I understand you had to pack up and move everything to the new location and set things up on a new film schedule and so on, so some padding had to be expected. Hopefully things will get even better once you get going again in the new location.
    I don’t want to sound ungrateful. Thanks for the lesson, grateful as always for the opportunity to learn from Paul and thanks also to the film crew and sound people and the editors who fix everything for us- I think all of us appreciate this great experience. It’s almost as good as a real apprenticeship.

    1. Hi CD, Thanks very much for the feedback. We are trying to find our way to a balance between the lengths of the projects as a whole and the lengths of each episode. We introduced the time-lapses and the sped up sections for this purpose, to enable us to show the whole process without having it run for an excessively long time, and to be concise. We are still experimenting, so do bear with us.

  3. I neverget tired of watching this man work. . and everytime I learn something. . most of all os patience. great job paul, . I’m hoping to some day to compleat a project like that.

  4. Just as I have enjoyed other Woodworking Masterclass videos, I am really enjoying and learning from this episode on the Craftsman-Style Rocking Chair. I appreciate the quality of instruction as well as the quality of the video presentation.

    It seems to me that, over time in the Masterclass series, the lighting, camera angles, and lens focusing have really been coming together nicely. Further, the incorporation of “speed-time” video has been handled very well when repetitive tasks are being filmed.

    So, kudos to all the craft workers involved — in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the editing room.

    Thank you all for your excellent, entertaining, and, most importantly, educational work on the Woodworking Masterclass series.

    Respects and regards to all.

  5. Hi all, personally I think you guys have got the time lapse and speed ups right. I guess different people have different preferences and requirements.
    Love this project
    Cheers Julian
