My latest DVD, “Build an 18th-century Workbench” is now available for pre-order in our store at a 15-percent discount until June 30 , $21.24 plus shipping.

As I was building the workbench that will be featured on the cover of the August 2010 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine, Glen Huey and Drew DePenning spent hours in the shop filming the construction process during the three months I was working on the bench. (Note: I’m not slow. I just have a day job.)

Since I finished the bench, Drew has been condensing the footage into a short but information-packed video that shows the entire construction process from working the raw slabs of wood to mixing and applying the finish that I like to use on workbenches.

After considerable effort, we condensed the video down to about 38 minutes of running time. That might not seem like a lot of video for your dollar. Here’s the deal: I hate “talking head” style videos , they are usually an inefficient method of transmitting information.
