We always just drive a nail in the handle.
Yeah, this is a better solution. LOL
Let me tell ya, I love every one of your videos so far. You should be very proud of your legacy
Hi, do you have a video on how to repair a hole in a wall. Just a regular wall inside my house. I like your videos and your attitude so I would like to get your advice on how to do it. If you have a video that shows how to repair a wall hole please let’s know. Thank you very much and I thoroughly enjoy your videos.
Hi ya yesss your bk
Adorable, as usual. You teach me so much and I love listening to your oh so soothing voice. Thanks, Leah.
Leah, what is the trick to sawing a straight cut with a hand saw. My cuts almost always wander off the desired path.
table for use in my greenhouse. Nothing too fancy but hope to add a shelf underneath. I’m using reclaimed wood from an old larger solid wood dining table. Also, thinking of sanding all varnish off so I can treat the wood with all weather stain. I can’t use the original legs as they are too big and heavy so should I use round of square Table will be 3ft high x 2ft. Not sure on length yet thinking about 4ft .

Hi Jane! Thanks for sharing your tips and tricks! I was hoping that you could make a video on how to how to install a garbage disposal in a double sink. You think you can in the future? Thanks again!
You need a mallet to make a mallet. Real questions is where did that first mallet come from 🤔
Hey Leah……happy to see your doing ok during this pandemic. 🙂
Keep em coming Leah! In a sea of great woodworking YT videos yours have a strong place!
Love your TicTok channel 😃
Loved it Leah! Glad to have you back at it 🙂
I have made mallets but just never thought about it, but always made the wedge that way. Now that i think about it i see why. Just turned 80 & learning
Love this channel
off center and shorter slots make the handle stronger.
What’s the brush called you applied the glue with?
Have always wanted to make a wooden mallet. Will put that on my bucket list
The relief cut is brilliant – thank you for sharing, Leah!!
I love this channel and the videos. I wish you had a regular tv show.
I love your videos. I dream of being a contractor and a carpenter one day and your videos are inspiring. You do a very good job!
The extra tips and your thorough explanations make everything click into place
Thank you for your hard work thank you , Your r a star ⭐️ 😉👍
My favorite video thus far! Thanks, Leah!!!
I love Japanese saws too
I’ve used that joint on a mallet last year made for my new chisel set. The handle is solid, and it feels like the entire mallet is one piece. I have a project in mind, an end table where I’m planning on mounting the legs through the top of the table slab with just this joint. Never had a problem with the joint, and its my second favorite joint, (the first is the half lap)
I don’t like the wedge being perpendicular to the grain of the HANDLE. In my experience, that’s asking for trouble later on down the road. Perpendicular to the head, yes, but not the handle. It’s better the handle split the way it naturally would. Lasts longer.
Does anyone know if she has a video of her backstory, like how she learned all that she knows, who did she learn from, why she chose her profession? She’s very interesting!
3:05 This part just screams "Catch-22" !
Wow! I’ve been doing it wrong all my life. Thanks
Thanks Leah, I never knew about that drilled hole. Question, did you hammer the wedge down all the way, or just until it was a tight fit? Thanks for your great videos.
There is a recessed ring at the base of the joint on the handle, what is the purpose for this?
Fabulous! Thanks so much for all you home working skills. Bristol UK.
Gluing tip: When using water based carpenters glue you can make an even stronger joint by first thinning slightly some of the glue with a little water, then apply some to both surfaces and let it soak in for a while. Then apply un-thinned glue and clamp or set in place. This allows the glue to penetrate below the surface forming a stronger bond when it dries.
Thank you for another awesome video
You make me believe anything is possible, I love your video’s. Your pace and narrative suits me perfectly, great job, please don’t stop, I have much to learn.
My father, now deceased, used to say to mom and me all the time ‘Women and machinery don’t mix.’
Stairs Leah. Plz make some stairs and rails lol
Love it when you stumble on a channel like this. High content, solid info and a great narration. Thanks Leah
Every video I learn something new 🥰
I like how you made that mallet and have to remember how the handle is put together so there won’t be any cracks in the handle. Thank, Leah for showing us this tip and I will try to remember it.
Hi Leah. It’s great to see the shorter videos again. Thanks.
God where do I know that chord progression from? "Can’t You See" by The Marshall Tucker Band comes to mind but I feel like I’m thinking of a Radiohead song or something.
Handle is placed Perpendicular to grain ~ _but_ When is cutting into Handle – is is Across or With the grain? Thanks!
Would you use the same cross grain approach putting a wedge in a tool handle such as an axe, hatchet, sledge hammer or similar? Thanks!
