This week I’ve been busy working on building the Ultimate Lathe Stand. I’ve needed a home for my old Craftsman lathe, so why not build the ULTIMATE stand for it?! It’s a great build by Alan Lacer, though I’ve had to adapt the plans for a larger lathe and I’ve decreased some of the complexity by removing the 5-degree angle on the legs. It’s been a great aerobic exercise in moving sheets of baltic birch plywood around the shop! Anyhow, I’ve curated the top woodworking videos of the week on YouTube, check them out below, or watch the video by clicking the image above.

    Like seeing peoples idea of “best of” videos. Helps to introduce new people to watch.

  • LoCoWoodshop

    I watch a ton of stuff on YouTube, and this has become my absolute favorite. It’s a brilliant concept – scan the Tube-o-sphere and give us a quick summary of the best stuff so we know what we want to watch. I have subscribed to several channels because of recommendations I saw here. Keep it up!
