Default Doucette & Wolf furniture videos

Four interesting videos about how they make furniture. Good deal of handwork involved. Very dedicated and skilled artisans.

Click on the You Tube icon and the video can be viewed full screen. Scroll down to link to the four videos. More videos can also be found by clicking on the "current projects tab" then scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Way, way above my pay grade. Way, way above.

Particularly like the rapid taps he does with the mallet . Must have taken years of practice. (Lol)

Watching him work is like watching Michelangelo. Watching me work is like watching Ogg the caveman.

I am not in the same league, in fact, not the same ball park, or even on a sand lot compared to those guys. Their work is the reason for the word exquisite. One thin I noticed is zero sandpaper. All smoothing is done with planes and scrapers. The difference in the finish is amazing. It is as if you are able to peer into the wood.

What they didn't show is how they keep all those blades razor sharp. I suspect it would improve all our woodwork simply by learning how they handle sharpening. I love using a hand plane and a sharp chisel, but to use it as the wood working masters on these videos do, is above my pay grade.

One other thing I noticed was how few strokes they required to rough out a dovetail. Endless practice, and the amazing selection of perfectly matched (and contrasting) wood.

It was said that Steve Jobs' final words were "Wow, wow. Wow" which seems about all there is left to say about the work shown on these videos. Wow!

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
