Over the years I've had many different challenges in my woodworking. Some were due to trying new techniques and others were related to fixing mistakes. These videos feature some tricks for possibly avoiding mistakes or a way of doing something that may be different than what you do. While some may be unique tricks and tips I've thought of myself I'm sure that others may have come up with many of them before I did. I do not claim any originality for these tricks or tips but offer them as a help for others.
