I had the same thoughts, Brian...in the beginning of the video he explains that his "waste factor" is typically 25%...he went on to say he sometimes bumps it up to 40%. No doubt a contributing factor is how he selects his grain patterns and the then resultant waste. This is not criticism on how he does that but it does say he's much more particular in his grain selection and it's a matter of choice.

I too was impressed by his disciplined and consistent techniques...

GIVE A MAN A FISH and you feed him for a day.
TEACH HIM HOW TO FISH and you feed him for his life time.

I am going to imitate his use of cardboard templates to isolate grain preferences - as far as my level of economy will allow. His overall approach is excellent and Iím starting on a few items that should benefit from such discipline. Would love to spend a few weeks in his shop too...

One thing I miss is the opportunity to visit other shops and see how others do their woodworking.
