A complete video series for hand tool woodworking

I stumbled upon this fellow Phil Lowe by accident, but he's a great teacher and has a whole series on the various aspects of woodworking with hand tools.
Starting out with this one about planes:


This one is called "squaring" but it goes into great detail about the hand plane which is the tool you would use to square up your stock:



This one is about gluing:


This one is about making a mortise and tenon joint:

There are quite a few others, so search the topic you are most interested in OR watch them all!
BigJim, Sleeper, JohnTC and 1 others like this.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I've watched hundreds of You Tube videos with guys with "personal issues", stumbling through, unprepared, ill informed, total novices trying to demonstrate something they no nothing about, it's embarrassing at times and they get a thumbs down/dislike from me.


This fellow is quite the opposite, he's prepared, shows examples, is knowledgeable on the subject he's demonstrating. I "liked" him!
Every woodworker whether a power tool guru or hand tool addict should watch these!

A different sharpening method ....

Most all the videos on sharpening plane blades I've watched show the blade being pushed along the stone. This fellow pulls the blade towards him and never pushes it. This creates a burr on the edge that he removes with a thin steel scale under the blade at the opposing edge of the stone. To start the sharpening process, he creates a slight hollow in the water stone by using a special cambered "flattening" diamond plate.

https://youtu.be/WiPAS-iQFvk?t=79

The same profile is then transferred to the blade when he pulls it back several times. His technique is a bit different than most, and I think it makes a great deal of sense:

Did you watch the one on sharpening card scrapers and cabinet scrapers? Near the end he uses his burnisher tip to realign the burr to the proper angle. His burnisher has a cone at the tip and by dragging along the edge it re aligns the burr. As in the last instruction (Pg 2)in this Stanley scraper manual.

I've watches bunches of YouTube videos, and somehow never ran across this guy. Just that first video alone is full of history and how-to information, in a concise, understandable way.
