1. What a great idea to use the cardboard to make the prototype, saves a lot of time and wood and can be recycled when finised and has served its purpose.
    Never see an episode that we don’t learn something usefull

  2. I have taken your advice and use my plans as the reference for leangth etc. Without this, I don’t start my project. I assume you have plans for this bed. Are they being prepared to show us? Will these be made available soon?

  3. I’m always blown away by how much work Paul puts into the planning of a new piece. I’d have just slapped down a large piece of paper on the floor to get an idea of size, but wow, does Paul’s version let me truly see how the finished bed would actually LOOK in the room. Looking foward to this one!

  4. For those unfamiliar with the dangers at 16:25, read on. Bandsaws don’t have kickbacks, but the can have “kick downs.” At 16:25, the work is not supported underneath where it means the blade. In some circumstances, the blade can grab the work and slam it down into the table. Depending upon where your hands are, they can be levered up and into the blade. In this case, Paul has judged that the cut is so shallow and the length of the work so long that he feels comfortable, but anytime there is air under the work at the blade, you should be thinking very carefully about whether you are safe. I learned this the hard way cutting the posts on a cabriole leg. Luckily, I wasn’t injured, but it was very close and nothing but luck that I didn’t lose a finger. I’m only raising this because the risk isn’t obvious until pointed out. The same situation exists if you try to crosscut a cylinder.
