The videos are on you tube. You have to use your browser's back button to come back to this site. I have made some videos and the links were in the product review area. So many people have asked where to find them I thought it best to have links on a separate page as well. They are still in the review area,, so nothing has changed there.
I apologize for the quality of lighting on the early ones. We don't call it woodworking in the dark for nothing. I appreciate the few people that wrote about the lighting problems. I admit that is an area I don't know there is a problem unless someone says something. It doesn't hurt my feelings I promise.
My first video was about the Easy Wood Tools Easy Rougher. Lighting wasn't the only problem there. The editing software we used had a button to fade and unfortunately it didn't stop. So during the video, it looks like the screen goes dark. I didn't actually do that so you could appreciate how I work. Short of re shooting the whole thing, it wasn't a problem we could fix. Cheap software and all that.
That was the first time I had used the Easy Rougher and I couldn't go back and expect anyone to believe it was my first time after I had used it already. If I had used it before, I'd have dressed differently because I get covered up with chips and dust...
Another favorite company of mine is Festool. They have so many "Why hasn't anyone else thought of that" features with their tools.
The ETS 150 was split from the CT 36 to keep it somewhat shorter. So it assumes you already saw the first part. It picks up where the CT 36 ended without any introduction.
A while back I picked up the Domino from Festool. This is like a biscuit cutter on steroids. Except the biscuit is more for aligning and not so much for strength. You can use dowels, but they can rotate in the joint. You won't get a domino to twist in the joint.
I made a night table for my son and used two dominos per end on each of the aprons. That is a total of sixteen dominos, or to do it the old way, sixteen mortises and sixteen tennons. I made the table in about a half a day. I might still be cutting mortises by hand if I would have gone that way. Nothing wrong with making mortises and tennons, I'm just real slow that way.
I dry fit the aprons to the legs and then set the top in place. Seeing as it was the first time I made anything with the Domino, I stepped up on the table and kind of marched in place. The impressive thing was it stayed together with no glue! Another great tool from Festool.
