Woodworking Techniques and Tips: Episode 2

Woodworking Techniques and Tips: Episode 2

Woodworking Techniques & Tips (Wood): Episode 2

John Landis, a professional woodworker, takes us on as his apprentice through a series of educational woodworking videos and generously shares his skill and expertise in woodworking with us.

In this video episode he continues his discussion about wood at the cellular level, about end grain versus long grain, and how that impacts what and how to glue wood, joints, etc. (glue only along the long grain and not the end grains unless you have special joints ...)

He also reveals that all wood has tension because of the different levels of moisture in a piece of wood. This tension has to be released before the milling process. The way to overcome movement due to this tension that is released when you cut into a piece of wood, is to over-cut on sizes.

He uses real life examples based on the projects being built in his company's shop. John goes over techniques and procedures that easily apply to projects you may be working on.

 He uses tools such as the jointer, planer, lathe, table saw, router, band saw and hand tools.
