Well, you asked whether or not we liked the video and to let you know, so here goes nothing......
To be completely honest, I thought the video was a little long, considering the complexity of the project. Other than that, I thought it was well put together and the picture quality was good. I'm not really a fan of music in tutorial videos but that's just my personal style and preference.
As for the project.....sadly, projects like this make me cringe as I worry about the safety of it all. There were a couple times in the video where your test cut wood jumped rather abruptly from the table top. This is caused by the fact that you are using the saw upside down and the jig saw cuts on the down stroke. I would seriously have concerns about control with that sort of jumping. The exposure of the blade is a little troublesome as well. I understand why you did what you did, but I would seriously consider a new design that would allow the blade to cut in its proper orientation and also provide a little more protection for the user.
I'm not being mean here, just some constructive criticism that's all.
There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
