As editors, we search our two web sites (popularwoodworking.com and shopwoodworking.com) constantly for information for the online extras portion of all articles and most columns – the information, we hope, is both relevant and interesting. While searching the sites, I often come across books, articles and DVDs that have scads of interesting information, including tips and techniques.
Because woodworkers are visual, I plan, over the coming weeks, to pull short snippets of some of the DVDs found at our store web site. Each clip has something useful, it’s not the same clip shared on the shopwoodworking.com site (when there is a clip) and it gives you a look at what other information is found on that particular DVD.
Below is a short clip from “Build a Custom Backsaw with Matt Cianci” in which Matt demonstrates a cool technique for sawing a dead-flat and straight kerf. In the DVD, Matt shows this technique as he works on a saw tote, and it’s a technique that you could use elsewhere in woodworking. Also, Matt shares a couple of tips about saw totes, including what a bad blade kerf in your saw’s handle could mean to your sawing abilities. (Click the link above to get all the details on this DVD.)
