    The jigs you’ll learn to build in this video class will help you in a number of ways on your table saw and bandsaw. In addition to simplifying the following tasks, you’ll get more repeatable results and, in some cases, a higher level of safety.

  • Cross cutting large panels
  • Table saw tenons
  • Cutting small parts on the bandsaw
  • Splining mitered corners
  • Cutting tapers, and straight-line
  • Cutting dadoes and rabbets
  • edging boards on the table saw
  • Once you’ve worked your way through our jigs, you’re sure to come up with ideas for other jigs you can use in your shop. And the instruction you get here is sure to help you build on your own.

    As woodworkers we use a variety of materials in our craft: solid wood in the form of hard woods and soft woods, domestic and imported woods, plywood, MDF, melamine, multi-ply plywood and more.

    Like choosing the right tool for the job, it’s important to choose the correct material. That’s why we created this video class. We want to help you better understand the material you’re working with and educate you about materials you may not be familiar with.

    You’ll learn about the following, from master woodworker George Vondriska:

  • Man-made materials
  • Where to buy quality material
  • Milling lumber
  • Construction grade lumber
  • Hardwood vs. softwood
  • Veneers
  • Exotic / imported woods
  • — And more…

    Having this information at your fingertips will make you a more educated consumer, help you save money on your projects, and ensure that you’re choosing the best material for the job at hand.

  • Must Have Sharpening Techniques
    If you’re using tools in your shop, you need to know how to sharpen them. It’s an old adage, but true, that dull tools are more dangerous than sharp tools. You’re likely to force a dull tool to do what it should be doing easily, and that leads to accidents. Additionally, your woodworking will be easier and more pleasant when you’re working with sharp tools.

    With George Vondriska as your instructor, this video class will give you many important tips and techniques for a broad array of tools. You’ll learn about:

  • Assessing need for sharpening
  • Tools of the trade
  • Router Bits
  • Bench Chisels
  • Plane Irons
  • Lathe Chisels
  • Card & Cabinet Scrapers
  • Forstner Bits
