Gr eat video! I am a traditional woodworker using antique tool s to reproduce period furniture to try and capture the butt of the furniture built by our forefathers. I now have about four years. Experience but find it difficult finding the tricks that the old cabinet makers used as they built their classic furniture.

This is probably the best “how and why” video that I have seen on making breadboard ends. There isn’t any requirement to make everything +/- .001 just eyeballing will make it happen.

Excellent Video, I’m starting a dining room table in the next few months and have felt daunted yet determined to do breadboard ends, this is certainly helpful and giving me a teeny bit more confidence!

Also, I think I’m doing this right for the clamp giveaway… If I win something but not that I’d love the shaker candle stand video, the Dovetail saw in dusk blue (L) t-shirt, or the bedrock hand plane mug in any color.

Hope this giveaway generates some traffic for you. I love your content and really look forward to your videos! Mat, Oregon, USA
