My computer doesn't have sound so I can's really understand the video. I get the impression the shop is in another country. Anyway everything the guy is doing in the first part of the video other than working barefoot I have done myself. Facing the boards on the jointer I have started using a push block but when I started making entry doors in the late 1970's I did many boards freehand. I still freehand rip on a table saw but only when it's something that can't be done with a fence. It's not something I would recommend to a beginner but it can safely be done.
Very neat video. The long exposure on the bandsaw blade is what scared me the most. The workers seemed to be in their 20ís and had probably been working in this shop since they were about 10.
I thought I saw a woman part time in the video.
If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
