shouldnt you just finish if before the final nailing so you dont spend so much effort finishing?
VIDEO TIP: Cut out your mistakes. LOL
nice work!! would love to have your shop set up! no fluff, all the basics! 👍
Are the screws + dowels necessary for the winebox, why add those instead of just using woodglue
I’m a first time viewer as well. I’ve been working with wood for quite some time, but very far from a professional. I have limited space, and limited tools. So it was nice to see you pulling out your planer, and not having the perfect set up for every tool. Makes some of us feel more relatable. Also, it was nice that you kept in the video the part where you forgot to put screws in before putting in dowels. It’s always good to remind everyone that we ALL makes mistakes along the way. Thnk you!!
Well that’s being honest about how it really go in a wood working shop nothing goes right all the time 👍
‘Easy’……… Arguably, the most commonly inappropriately used, word in the English language…..
Great video. Many of the ideas will transfer to other projects. I actually prefer having the grooves for the sliding panels show at the ends of the box. It gives the impression of a hand-made box, which in turn, gives the impression of hand-made wine. I think it looks more special.
Awesome work great ideas thanks for sharing these.
A quick tip for dowels, if you have a metal tap and die set you can run square profile hardwood through the required diameter die. cut a length of hardwood square and put it in a hand drill chuck and slowly cut the dowel profile with the die, you can finish with sandpaper …..
Nice builds. My wife put together some cork board coasters so she asked me to make a holder for them. This was one of our Christmas gifts for family and friends.
I really like your videos, you include your mistakes which we all make. If you don’t mind me asking, what kind of table saw do you have? I would like to buy a bigger and better one then the one I have.
Odd question, but what pants are those?
thanks for a great video
Absolutely love the fact you didn’t edit the issues, makes it more personable. Great Job.
I LIKED THE FIRST ONE
You could also use some square dowels to fill those holes on the end like you did with the round ones to cover the screws.
I love the Deft Lacquer, but discovered a tip on another channel. If you buy (or build) a cheap lazy susan, you can turn the piece you are spraying without touching it. Allows you to easily do all four sides.
Nicely done ✅ thanks
WHY NOT JUST USE DOWEL ON BOX . NO SCREWS.
I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who makes mistakes!!!!
I wish you would use the metric system.
There’s some great ideas here! An easier method to hide the rabbets on the wine box could also be to use mitre joints.
i originally thought you said "pickle" holder.
1st time watching you, I really enjoyed these as they’re on the beginner side, you gave great instructions and showed us how to do everything that you did along the way.
I just bought a table saw, Delta half price at Lowe’s last week, my space is limited so I really need to think about where it’s going to go before we assemble it, looking forward to being able to make more projects, a planer is next.
Enjoyed you video! Thanks for sharing the realities of woodworking and showing your mistakes. It’s reassuring to know that I’m not alone. We often gift wine during the holidays and your wine box looks like a great way to dress up a moderately priced offering. I subscribed so looking forward to more ideas and opportunities to improve.

Nicely done! I had the same thought about putting a candle or light inside 🙂
What would you charge a customer for the wine box?
Turn bottle neck to handle end so the bottle is upright when on end !
LOL! Thank you for leaving in the little bloopers! Nice to see we all slip up here and there
Great ideas! I was looking for something for
the coworkers in the office. Pen holder will be perfect! To add to your ideas for gifts, I’ve been doing Adirondack chairs… but those are definitely on a bigger scale… make perfect his/hers wedding gifts!
REALLY like your pragmatic, practical approach in this video; I’ve subscribed! Love the wine box idea, so simple and elegant. :). thanks for taking the time to do these videos- I’ve been on the fence about getting the AirStrike, AND the multi tool- this video has pushed me over the fence. Husband got me a big ol’ HomeDepot gift card for Christmas…looks like I know what I’m getting with it! Thank you, sir!!
Sorry not yelling. Curious
I’m glad you add in all the compilations that come with trade work. Not everything goes smooth all of the time
Have used both rigid and ryobi. Ryobi has out done Rigid every time. Even with warranty.
*REAL PROJECT* 😍😍
The last craft project could be turned into a little night light
I never throw away sponge paint brush handles I use them for plugs and I always have that problem of where the hell did I put my tape 😀
Great ideas! Thanks for putting this out.
Curious as to what brand clamp you used on the wine box handle.
Awesome ideas, much appreciated. I’m thinking you could have cut a slot in the end of the dowels and added ‘wedges’ of a darker material for that contrast you were looking for – without having to leave your shop. Nice!
I have found that staining, painting your project after cutting all the parts and sanding is the best way to cover the entire project. Took me half the time doing it that way. Touch up is hardly done. I’m gentle on build. Remember to compensate for the layer of paint/stain, it might throw your build off a slight bit.
I prefer to just use a quarter inch router but on my router table
Don’t see alot of people using the Delta compound miter saw. How do you like it? Pros? Cons?
I do like what your making ..
Ryobi makes an 18V drill and driver kit to for with your brad nailer. There is something glorious about having one set of rechargeable batteries to power all your tools. Don’t buy more than one battery technology or you wind up with lots of different batteries and chargers. Stick with the Ryobi 18V system and you can power ALL your tools from the same set of batteries and chargers. Do you want a shop full of tools or a shop full of chargers?
I would have resawed (resawn?) that walnut instead of turning a quarter inch of it into sawdust lol
Seriously! As a woodworking teacher, how come every YouTube r doesn’t have a guard on the table saw. I know it’s a hassle sometimes, but it literally saves fingers and major accidents! No piece of wood is worth what it takes to have a guard on. Plus I can’t show your videos in my class.
Spray laqcuer by far the best for this project! Nice video! Keep it up
