40 How To Use A Japanese Hand Saw  •  1 of 4 • Japanese Saw Review
 
05:29
http://AskWoodMan.com/ This is the first video in short four video series featuring Gyokucho RazorSaws, a brand of Japanese hand saw. (Japanese pull saw review) Video one explains the difference between they way western style saws are used compared to Japanese saws. In this video, Allan talks about the three different Japanese saws he uses regularly in his shop. He demonstrates the importance of taking advantage of the pull cutting action of the saw. Japanese saws are designed to cut with the least amount of effort by holding the handing down. When you cut on the pull with the handle down, this pins, stabilizes and takes vibration out of your cutting process, which makes for a more efficient, more accurate cut. ______________________________________ Be sure to check out the three other videos in this Japanese Saw series. Allan first explains his philosophy behind using Gyokucho RazorSaws and creates a tenon using a rip and a cross cut saw. WoodMan also demonstrates how to make a quick, aggressive rough cut using the two-bladed crosscut/rip saw and how to quickly change or replace blades. As a bonus, you'll see his shop caddy where he stores his his blades for easy access. ______________________________________ Want to know which tools and products that AskWoodman uses?

22 The Best Sanding Tip For Woodworkers: Sand The Sequence - SOLID WOOD DOOR SERIES -  Video 11
 
08:13
This is the eleventh video in a detailed series featuring important aspects of finishing, sanding, gluing and clamping a traditional solid wood door. http://AskWoodman.com/ Video 11 includes an important sanding tip for all woodworkers. Woodman's pet peeve? He hates to see machine marks in a finished piece. What's the best way to avoid that? Sand the sequence. Sanding The Sequence, working through the grits, is a huge time saver. Woodman talks about his sanding theory, different grits, and what sandpapers he considers the best on the market today. He also explains why he doesn't use random orbital sanders for most sanding work. Woodman believes a half sheet orbital sander does a superior job to achieve flatness and straightness. Sanding with the Festool half sheet sander is a pleasure and is like sanding on autopilot. ______________________________________ Be sure to check out the other videos in the Solid Wood Door Series. The complete series starts with explaining how to build a stunning tung oil based finish using Waterlox Original. It also shows detailed instruction for how to prep the surface, how to glue and clamp mortise and tenon joints using PC7 and various clamps, how to make blow out repairs, and multiple sanding techniques and philosophy.
