54 – Woodworking 101 FREE ONLINE COURSE LESSON 1 Part 1 of 8 The Circular Saw

54 – Woodworking 101 FREE ONLINE COURSE LESSON 1 Part 1 of 8 The Circular Saw

This is the first video in our free 16 week woodworking 101 online course.

Lesson number one is a basic introduction to the tools needed for woodworking. Since it is a long video we have broken it down into 8 conveniently short parts.

This segment covers the circular saw.

This is a specifically designed curriculum created to teach all of the essentials of woodworking to take someone with no knowledge to the level of a moderately experienced woodworker. The entire course is free and will be posted online. During the course we will also be practicing our newly developed skills by building projects. We will provide plans for all course projects free on our website.

The course will cover a comprehensive introduction to all necessary woodworking tools, lumber selection, adhesives, joinery, building methods, styles, sanding, finish prep, final finish, and much more…

  23. Seb LeGrand on July 16, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    Tools use aren’t part of wood working I believe. But are a separated subject, perhaps make "tools tutorials videos". Too long, too much talking…

  24. Fawad on July 16, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    I feel lucky to have find this free course which is very valueable. Best regards for James who is making the effort so that carpentry students like me will benefit a lot from these lessons. Thank you James

  25. dividendz on July 16, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Great videos! I just bought a house and am looking at the Spring tool sales at Home Depot and Lowes, and am trying to figure out what to get. Question on tablesaws: I recently learned of the Stopsaw brand/type. I am attracted to this as I’m new and really don’t want to lose a finger. So, do you think its worth the price? Also, my nephew who is starting out in the trades was telling me that when the blade is stopped, it costs a lot of money to repair the system. Is that true? Thanks!

  26. Michael Lewis on July 16, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Great video.

  27. Woodworking Woodworking on July 16, 2022 at 10:57 pm

  28. Mamar Sebai on July 16, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    This was great, I have been researching "weekend woodworking projects magazine download" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Yanathew Wood Waggler – (do a google search )?

    It is a smashing exclusive product for building amazing sheds and your own wood work projects without the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my buddy got cool success with it.

    Is there a place I can find tutorials with manual tools, don’t have room for electrical tools or even reliable electricity where I am but I am really interested in learning.

  33. Ernest Mahalefa on July 16, 2022 at 11:04 pm

  34. Ethel Reid on July 16, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Hi James. This is wonderful, you have such a great way of explaining things. I am a lady in my mid sixties and I have always wanted to learn woodwork. I have bought books but found them hard to follow. I cannot thank you enough for what you are doing. God Bless you.

  35. JAMES DUNCAN on July 16, 2022 at 11:06 pm

  44. Steve Mann on July 16, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    hi James, I’m here 2 years after you posted these and just watched your first video. If it matters, I’m a pretty big critic of people who present/create content/write blogs/make videos and are awful in communication – speaking/writing/grammar. You’re the complete opposite….SO easy to listen to, understand, and appreciate. GREAT job. I will be looking for more. I’m a motivated but *brand new* woodworker and hope to learn enough to be dangerous. Will look for your patreon, FB group, etc, etc. Thank you for your professionalism.

  45. sarvan thulasi on July 16, 2022 at 11:16 pm

  49. Michael Mallatt on July 16, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Thank you so much for this series! THIS is what YouTube should be for and YOU are the perfect example of a GREAT Instructor! At 40 years old, I feel like I should know a lot of this, but never learned, and over the years became too embarrassed to ask. Now, I feel like I can gain some really valuable life skills and pass them down to my kids, Thanks!

  50. DÂRKxDEFALTR on July 16, 2022 at 11:21 pm
