Joined Stool video series – Assembly

The next video in the joined stool series is up & running. Assembling the stool. There’s a lot of repetition, but somewhere in there is what you need to know about pinning these joints together. And some of what can go wrong.


We’re closing in on this set being done, there’s maybe two more. Three I guess when I re-load the one about carving & scratch stock molding.

If there’s something you’d like to see addressed in future videos, I can’t promise anything but it won’t hurt to ask.

And thanks to all who help to make this go. I appreciate it.

I forgot to add: Today’s warbler, a common yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas)

  1. Thanks to you, Peter and Daniel! Being a teacher and one of few youngish, tech-saavy members of a faith community that got “Here am I, send me-ed” by the Spirit, I have created hours of instructional and entertainment these past weeks and have learned the true “cost” of video. It’s astounding how much goes into every minute. We appreciate it immensely and will buy and promote your materials, donate as able, and try to get in a class when we’ve figured out the new normal for public hygiene….

  2. Thank you for posting these videos! Always interesting and informative!
    In the above posting you said, “If there’s something you’d like to see addressed in future videos, I can’t promise anything but it won’t hurt to ask.” OK. You don’t seem to talk about sharpening tools and I know your tools are sharp, it’s obvious. Could you, would you do something on sharpening?
    Thanks,

  3. Peter,
    A few ideas:
    I also would enjoy a primer on sharpening and stropping.
    I look forward to seeing how you make the stool top and installing it.
    Scratch stock molding-soon to be reloaded I hope.
    Please demo coloring a piece-I understand that you do not do this on every piece.
    Last and most important- please continue the pictures of wildlife!!
    Thank you!!
    Pete Magoon

  4. In timberframing, I made a point of dipping pegs in BLO before driving if just to make the task faster. I was surprised that you use neither drawbore pins nor lubricant
