    I have found that the brad nail tip is arbitrary, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. You never know what is inside the wood that may divert the nail. I am meticulous about the tip of the nails and they still blow out.

  2. Andy Sommer on September 5, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    Just watching video after video! These are great tips!!! Thanks

  3. Keith A on September 5, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    That table saw joining trick is excellent.

  4. Brainwashing Detergent on September 6, 2022 at 12:00 am

    The stand off “hack” you showed is one of those things when I saw, I felt stupid for not thinking of something so obvious….

  5. GamerDad on September 6, 2022 at 12:00 am

    I am new to Woodworking I would consider myself to be a Hobiest, Creator, Maker. I am loving your videos Sir, thank you for sharing your knowledge 🙂

  6. Jerome Barideaux on September 6, 2022 at 12:02 am

    This is my favorite woodworking channel! No BS, straight to the point, and a great host. Keep up the work! You’ve helped a ton!

  7. Ethan on September 6, 2022 at 12:07 am

    I’ve had a brad nail go into finger about half an inch

  8. John Shumake on September 6, 2022 at 12:09 am

    Love that cabinet in the background! That split design is wild, are there plans available for it?

  9. J RIV on September 6, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Great video, some good tips! looks like i got sum old videos to look up. I don’t come hear for laughs but that rainbow part caught me off gaurd! Well done sir!! Appreciate it all!!

  10. thefeet on September 6, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Again, WOW. You are new to youtube but i absolutely love your format where you don;t waste time. You deliver tips for all of us, old/new to woodworking… sometimes i roll my eys but also remember I WAS NEW TO THIS ONCE and then you toss something in that rejuvenates the brain and gets me thinking… well-earned sub!

  11. Eddie Brannan on September 6, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Awesome stuff, I always forget the other stuff the speed square can do and those stand offs…. I’m hitting myself in the head for not realizing that! Will definitely be digging in my scrap boxes to make some. Thanks for the tricks and please keep them coming!

  12. Sheri Karanasos on September 6, 2022 at 12:14 am

    Your short tips is why I am here. I’m always wanting to learn new things and especially to cut time. I wish I saw this last night. I was using my nailer and all the nails were coming out the side. I was working on a drawer. It was also taking out two nails at a time. Not sure why that was happening. Thanks for all your advice and great videos.

  13. War Chicken on September 6, 2022 at 12:15 am

    Yo, the first tip in the beginning made it all worth it.

  14. Laura Peech on September 6, 2022 at 12:16 am

    Love these tips!

  15. Ronswoodshack on September 6, 2022 at 12:20 am

    Thanks for sharing have a blessed day

  17. Lucy Scott Walker on September 6, 2022 at 12:23 am

    I was wondering if you have Scottish blood because your thriftiness is speaking to my heart.

  18. Tim on September 6, 2022 at 12:23 am

    Just found your channel sucha refreshing style. Tip with your stand offs I make them with a few extra holes in the base close to the centre pin then you can stack them or pair them face to face so you don’t stab your self.

  19. Wood Tool on September 6, 2022 at 12:24 am

    Kudos to you for explaining the use of crown stops on the miter saw. Other people hold that back, I guess as a carpenters’ secret.

  20. Rick w on September 6, 2022 at 12:25 am

    @Matthew Peech Some times the most simplest things are the best. Like the squares with a screw in them to hold your project off the table, that is priceless. Along with all your info is priceless to those of us woodworks.
    Remember to keep up the good job, you are a valued you tuber!

  21. MrSharkystyle on September 6, 2022 at 12:25 am

    8:18 how to make your own color stain. Can you please send me the link to your video. TIA

  22. Doug Wynn on September 6, 2022 at 12:27 am

    Love your channel. Great helps and ideas

  23. Louis Landi on September 6, 2022 at 12:27 am

    Matthew, in a previous comment I said you had one of my top three
    favorite channels. I have to change that and put you solely at
    #1. Besides having an amazing broad knowledge, you have a natural talent to teach. I’m a new wanna-be woodworker and appreciate everything you’ve taught me.
    A million thank you’s!

  24. Scott Kervin on September 6, 2022 at 12:29 am

    You got mad skills and great content 🏆💯

  27. MrJasonch on September 6, 2022 at 12:32 am

    Great video as always. I have a request for a video. Can you show how to zero you dewalt miter saw? I can not get mine to cut straight and think my dewalt backer is off but probably just me. We have the same saw except I rarely use mine because I square left side of blade then the right side is off? I feel stupid I can’t follow those dam directions lol. Please help me Mathew lol.

  28. Chris Dempsey on September 6, 2022 at 12:33 am

    I assure you…framers do not use speed squares these days

  29. iconic americano on September 6, 2022 at 12:33 am

    I’m very happy I found this channel. I live on a busy street so I’ve picked out about 6 or 7 different items you’ve suggested that im going to build a few of each & set up a yard sale on the weekend. I’ll check back in to let yall know how it goes.

  30. Scott on September 6, 2022 at 12:34 am


  31. Jacalli on September 6, 2022 at 12:34 am

    Great tips! thanks for putting the video together!

  32. Kenneth Howard on September 6, 2022 at 12:36 am

    Can you make a shooting bench?

  33. randy hix on September 6, 2022 at 12:38 am

    Man thanks for all the good information you provided on this video sure wood like to work with you one weekend. Keep up the good work on teaching us woodworking skills.

  34. Tony Bankston on September 6, 2022 at 12:39 am

    Hey Matthew! I have the same Dewalt sliding miter saw, I would like a segment on setting up this saw, how to use all the features and types of projects could be made, just using this saw! I realize I am not using the full capability of my saw, Thanks to you!

  35. Robert Parchman on September 6, 2022 at 12:39 am

    Thank you not adding music to your videos.

  36. Till We Have Replicators on September 6, 2022 at 12:40 am

    I’d never even heard of lifts before (I’d just used shims) & you just made my life a lot easier. Thank you.

  37. Greg Mulligan on September 6, 2022 at 12:40 am

    Dude you are the man. I have a gumstick for cleaning sandpaper but that costs money. I got plenty of old shoes. Plus you invented self screwing screws.

  38. over the hill on September 6, 2022 at 12:41 am

    Thank you. I did not realize the mitre saw had a stop. Felt rather silly once I took a good look at mine.

  39. Allen Godden on September 6, 2022 at 12:42 am

    I have seen you use what looks like a ruler with a lock on it. I was just wondering what it is. Any help would be great. And thank you for putting these videos out for people to learn from it has been a great help for me.

  40. Guy Bowers on September 6, 2022 at 12:44 am

    Always enjoy watching your videos as they are some of the most informative I’ve seen

  41. J. Germ on September 6, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Your videos are awesome and very informative. Hello from South Texas !

  42. Steve Foster on September 6, 2022 at 12:45 am

    @matthew peech One thing I love about your how-to videos on making items to sell is that you show how to create the jigs to make the assembly repeatable. Nobody else I’ve seen does this and I appreciate it! I might give it a try sometime as a side hustle.

  43. MySickstring on September 6, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Great video. Earned my Sub

  44. Tim Sr on September 6, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Murder nova has a brother!?

  45. Bill Parrish on September 6, 2022 at 12:46 am

    I like the ‘scrap ‘n’ screw’ alternative to painter’s tripods. Another economical option if you don’t want to pay $6.47 for a bag of 10, but may be out of extra screws or suitable scrap, is to buy a bag of ‘rebar chairs’, for holding up rebar off the bottom of a concrete pour. The cheapest ones I found are $4.47 for a bag of 20 that are 2 1/4" tall, at ‘the Depot’. They have a little rebar clip at the top, 2 high points, and if that messes up the paint too much, clip one off.

  46. 86Corvus on September 6, 2022 at 12:46 am

    I just snapped the screw gently applying even pressure from all sides and the screws thread was fine on all 4 screws

  47. Billy Jay on September 6, 2022 at 12:48 am

    Great tips that’s why I subscribed nice one

  48. Andy's Bastelbude on September 6, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Thank you for all your Videos.

  49. Woodwork Therapy on September 6, 2022 at 12:51 am

    Hey I just saw you in my WOOD Magazine as a featured creator with your Alice and Wonderland Cabinet. Glad to see you are doing well!

  50. Laura Marshall on September 6, 2022 at 12:54 am

    Brilliant. I knew 2 of those, but the most useful ones I didn’t know. Thank you.
