If you head out to the shop to actually do what you watched Mr. Klausz
do you'll quickly discover that though you are sure you remember what
you watched, you didn't - even if you watched the tape a couple of
He covers a LOT of ground. I went through the tape - lets just say
several times - and put together instructions based on what I watched
and heard. Might find it useful
to put together ever since I bought the tape. I got from the library,
watched it, tried it, went back to the tape, tried it... by the fifth
iteration I decided it would probably be prudent to buy the tape.
I haven't pulled them out for a while. Is that the one where he grabs
that great big bow saw to demonstrate that it's possible with any old
saw? I ended up buying just about all his vids and that one might be
from the "tune your tools" tape.
I like Frank. I don't think I'd last ten minutes as one of his
students but I like watching his tapes.
It's nice to have it in your own library - but playing it in the shop
while you're trying to watch the video means a TV and VCR in the
shop - which, in my case, would soon mean the death of the tape,
the VCR and maybe the TV (dust). Having a printed copy of the
procedure on your bench hopefully works better.
Not on his Making a Handcut Dovetail Drawer tape. Tage Fried used
a bow saw - and uses it in one of his 20 minute tapes. On one of
them he sharpens his chisel on an upside down belt sander - with
maybe an 80 grit belt on it. Sparks flying EVERYWHERE.
