1. very helpful episode . especially in relation to the cabinet scraper i was getting awful chatter sometimes, and blamed the user and the presentation or my turned edge .had i to little or to much, i never really coped on to vibration the box looked well clamped when Paul got chatter but just by moving it into the jaws a bit more it made a big difference. building this project along with Paul is fantastic i find watching it done is very educational but its more often what Paul says and how he explains the whys and donts is where i feel is the real learning. thanks again WWMC. and great camera work Phil

  2. At around 12:50 I hear that high pitched chatter that you get with the #80 and hardwood. It sometimes creates a high frequency skipping pattern in the wood that’s easily removed with a card scrapper. Usually oiling the sole helps eliminate it.

  3. I can’t help but think there is an entire books worth of material on various grafting techniques for repairs, alterations etc. I have been reading allot lately on the 19th century work of luthiers grafting various violins and violas. I find it all fascinating and would very much enjoy more on your experiences with this Paul. Thank you.

  4. Hi Paul,
    I was really hoping that your Box came out in slight twist to help further demonstrate such techniques in how to mend this. I feel I have an out of flat workbench top that resulted in a rather noticeable twist in my carcass. Other than flattening my bench top, is there a video or technique that you have covered for ways to cope and bring back to a flat surface?

    Thanks much,

    1. Hello Kyle,
      It is quite common to have to flatten your bench after a year or so when the timber has settled.
      It is difficult to correct twist once all the joinery etc is complete. How you might address twist depends very much on the direction of the twist. You can correct it a little if it is out of square using the clamps when gluing up.
