With Chris in Germany, I’m afraid this post will be sorely lacking in metaphors involving wee creatures (I simply haven’t my boss’ flair for metaphor). I do, however, recall hearing about the great fly invasion.
This new DVD, “Sawing Fundamentals,” was shot on location in Warren, Maine, at the Lie-Nielsen studio. And, like the swallows’ return to Capistrano every spring, so the flies return to Maine (I prefer similes). As Chris, Conor and the crew were filming, they had to stop every few minutes to commit mass muscacide.
Despite the killing spree, Chris and crew managed to produce a seamless 57-minute DVD that teaches the basics of sawing , how to choose the right saw for the job, how to grip it, the correct sawing stance and more. Plus, Chris shows you the three classes of saw cuts: third class , for rough stock prep; second class , for accuracy when appearance is not important; and first class , where appearance is critical.
“Sawing Fundamentals” is now available in our bookstore ($25), and as with all of Chris’s Lie-Nielsen DVDs, his proceeds will be donated to charity , in this case, White Water Shaker Village.
