It feels good to complete a project.
I finally finished the chisel rack. Up until now, I have uploaded fairly short videos to YouTube. I had no idea what I was getting into with the chisel rack video. I stopped about halfway through the project to have a look at the raw footage and realized there was over an hour of it. I simply underestimated the scope of the project. With a little more filming/editing experience under my belt, I may revisit this. Or maybe I’ll go ahead and post a long video at some point. With dovetailed corners, housing joints, rabbets and a dovetailed stretcher I don’t think I’ll be able to keep it under an hour. I thought about posting a series of articles on how I approached each joint and short videos to go with them, but I have to move on for now. I have other projects pending. Ah well, it was a learning experience.
I uploaded a video anyway, which is mostly just an apology:
And some happier news – I needed some custom dowels to go with the next couple of projects I’ll be working on, so I made a video about how I make them. I also wrote an Instructables article to go with it. I’ve done three Instructables articles now, and all three have been featured.
