Standard Disclaimer: Putting your soft, squishy fingers near powerful sharp spinning things is dangerous. I’ve been doing this for a while and I know what I’m doing but even I’m not invincible. I take a lot of safety precautions based on my level of experience and not all of them are shown on camera. Don’t do anything you aren’t comfortable with. If it makes you nervous you’re probably doing it wrong. Don’t do anything stupid. Reapply sunscreen often and floss before bed. Is anyone actually still reading this?

    You should try the diamond wheels for the work sharp. They are amazing.

    Hey brother. I’ve been watching your channel since, I think, pretty close to when you started it. I love your work. Anyway, I came back from deployment and came to my trusty zen woodworking channel, and I *THINK* some of your videos are missing. I’m pretty sure I found your channel from a video about your workbench, for example. That video is no longer listed on your uploads. Only parts 1 and 2 are shown for that entry table you were making. Its also possible I’m just loosing my mind. Cheers from San Diego!

    Ok..got me with the soft jaw pliers.

  4. Scott Schneider on August 19, 2023 at 6:21 pm

    What do you like to use to apply the wipe on poly? What do you use to place the wood on while it’s drying? Great video!

  5. Matt Robin on August 19, 2023 at 6:22 pm

    Your Yataro chisel suggestion was so HOT they are no longer offered

  6. Blake Weber on August 19, 2023 at 6:27 pm

    The FULL list of ALL my favorite tools is on my website: http://www.weberwoodshop.com. Please COME BACK AND COMMENT if you buy something!

  7. Ray Campbell on August 19, 2023 at 6:28 pm

    Not to harp on your opening. This one you nailed it. (No woodworking pun intended.) Enjoying your videos. So quick question…maybe a long answer? What is the one thing you would have done differently when building your shop? And if that’s too long of an answer…how about—the topic of dust collection. Not crazy about the look of large metal tubing all across a shop. Is it easier to have a Festool mobile maybe even two of them for more efficient collecting?

  8. David Hurst on August 19, 2023 at 6:29 pm

    yes I was wondering how I can get a sticker of your logo to put on my shop wall. I collect them from all the people I watch on YouTube for tips and tricks and inspiration for projects I do

  9. Coleman McCormick on August 19, 2023 at 6:30 pm

    Awesome list – and the outtakes are excellent

  10. Roberto Rodriguez on August 19, 2023 at 6:35 pm

    Gracias por tu contenido, voy comenzando en este oficio y me ha ayudado, saludos

  11. Silas Marner on August 19, 2023 at 6:35 pm

    Carbide RazOr blades. And thanks for the suggestion. I bought them. I’m sick of dull ones right in the middle of using them.

  12. Jud McFeters on August 19, 2023 at 6:40 pm

    Why does EVERY channel in the world think they have to do a gift “idea” video?

  13. Jay Eckhart on August 19, 2023 at 6:42 pm

    I was wondering how many times you had to try to stick that blade, thanks for the blooper portion so that now we know.  Great video and it gave me a few ideas to tell my wife and kids.

  14. Sharpskull2 on August 19, 2023 at 6:44 pm

    Those little sanding drums can actually destroy your drill press if you are putting enough pressure on them, because the spindle in the drill press is not engineered for lateral pressure it can push the spindle out of plumb and even cause it to damage the inside of your machine I think Adam Savage did a video where he repaired his drill press and talked about this

  15. akbar chaki on August 19, 2023 at 6:45 pm

    Very good vidio i have tools like you

  16. SteMir ReViews on August 19, 2023 at 6:45 pm


  17. Joshua Sidwell on August 19, 2023 at 6:46 pm

    Carbide Blades are more brittle so if you are doing construction not wood working you want the normal tool steel.

  18. Barry Allin on August 19, 2023 at 6:47 pm

    Some nice items here, but numerous of your links here come back as "Currently unavailable" 🙁

  19. Kevin Osborn on August 19, 2023 at 6:49 pm

    Hey, the seamless paper holder has been discontinued. Can you add a different link so I can still buy through your link?

  20. MC's Creations on August 19, 2023 at 6:51 pm

    Pretty nice stuff there, dude! 😃
    Thanks for all the tips!
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊

  21. Dusty James on August 19, 2023 at 6:53 pm

    Loved the list, check out Lenox carbide utility blades they’re the best I’ve ever used

  22. greg randol on August 19, 2023 at 6:54 pm

    Woodglut is nice for that.

  23. Garviel Loken on August 19, 2023 at 7:07 pm


  24. scott callan on August 19, 2023 at 7:08 pm

    Really enjoy your work, the projects are just outstanding, the music beautiful, thanks so much.

  25. Scott B. on August 19, 2023 at 7:09 pm

    Regarding the intercom system, have you found a system that can alert you in a noisy shop, i.e., with a flashing light or loud horn? An intercom system would be nice, but I haven’t found one that I can hear if I have tools running.

  26. TheFalconJetDriver on August 19, 2023 at 7:13 pm

    DUDE the dowel assortment price is $41.99 and $25.30 for shipping perhaps you should look at the pricing before recommending a product, that is crazy. I would like to add that if your drill press has a morris taper that holds the chuck a sanding drum in the chuck will cause the tapper to drop out with side loads. Just saying!
    The vinyl strips for the miter saw YEA!
    I like your finishing solutions too!

  27. Russell Fay on August 19, 2023 at 7:13 pm

    Thanks for the input! It’s really helpful to get unbiased feedback (as I’m certain you can appreciate)! I went for the sanding detail finishing kit right away, It’s just what I’ve been looking for to work on some chess pieces I have in process. And I put several other items on my "Fat Chance" (Christmas) list. I’ll come back through your links for whatever I don’t receive in January!
