More on the blog: http://www.woodworkerssource.com/blog/tips-tricks/easy-fantastic-ash-wood-finishing-techniques/
Ash is a hardwood that looks great with a clear, natural finish – no argument. But wait ’till you see what else you can do to the wood with a simple 3 step finishing process. Ash is an enjoyable wood to work with and it’s also one of the easiest hardwoods to stain because it accepts color so evenly and without blotching. So this video is a demonstration of some super cool ideas — colorful and full of contrast — for finishing ash. Techniques included are staining, dying, using grain filler, how to make ash 100% jet black, and others. Enjoy.

6 – How to Mill Lumber Using a Jointer

In this episode, I review one of the most critical and fundamental aspects of woodworking: milling lumber. I review my 4-step milling process, which requires some big tools. And since I know many folks don’t have a fully outfitted shop, I also present numerous alternative methods for jointing edges and flattening faces. The jointer’s jumpin’!!!

Building a Solid Woodworking Workbench from cheap lumber

In this video I’m building a solid workbench for woodworking. I made it of construction grade timber, things I got for free and some plywood. I’m using mortise and tenon joinery and drawboring. There are some small things left that I need to complete and I will make an update video when those things are in place. This is a really heavy workbench especially when all the drawers and cabinets are filled with tools and stuff.

I basically used a table saw, japanese hand saw and a regular No. 4 handplane. It took a lot of elbow grease but it was a good practice using hand saws. The workbench top is made of an old solid hardwood coffe table I was lucky to get for free. It’s not dead flat but pretty close I would say. I installed a small Veritas inset vise at the one end of the table and I am planning to add a vise at the left side as well but for now I just use my portable vise.

If you want to build this workbench yourself I have plans available on my site (see the top of this description) You should be able to build it with just hand tools but a table saw will ease up things dramatically.

If you like this video please give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel. Buying the plans will also help to support my channel so I can make more videos. Thank you for watching, every view is highly appreciated.
