    Beautiful work.

    And this is why I appreciate Paul’s work. He is never afraid to show an “oops” and how to fix it.

      Exactly so.

      It’s not what goes wrong that’s important – it’s how it is put right.

    Really happy to see you’ve gone back to your old watch. Seems to align a little bit better to traditional woodworking versus the digital version you were wearing.

    As always, even after watching your videos for more than five years, I am still learning and being inspired with every new project.

    Thanks so much.

    Would we say that generally the thickness of the panel dictates the width of the mortise? In all the carcass frames I’ve seen Paul done it seems the tenons always fit the grooves first and that makes for convenient walls when chopping the mortises.
    The reason I ask is sometimes I think of a project that might have thinner plywood ‘skins’ around grooved into the frames, but I wouldn’t necessarily want thin tenons.
