Another fab video from Jimmy Diresta.
Design & Manufacture
Nice wee video on the manufacture of some hand crafted salt and pepper shakers from maple and walnut hardwoods.
This video shows one type of start to finish logging used by a forestry company. They use a selective harvesting plan with the land owner then local contractors are sent out to operate the Feller Buncher, Skidder, Processor and Loader to safely finish the job.
Jimmy makes a chess board from walnut and piece of maple.
Watch Jimmy build a classic wood toolbox using reclaimed white oak. There are some great woodworking techniques demonstrated in this project, including how to make box joints, how to make a lap joint panel, how to install butt hinges, tips for driving brass screws, and how to install some interesting lid support and catch hardware.
