    When I see table saw, planer and jointer in a video for "beginners", I start hating the autor. Seriously. How do you expect a beginner to fell wathcing this?
    Drill, circular saw/jig saw and (maybe) a miter saw this is what usually means a beginner. Having a sander is already advanced beginner )))
    So, do something within this simple set of toos! Othervise, it looks like a video from Tesla factory named "car manufacturing for beginners".

    I know it was his project, but I just think he could have,and should have, put a connecting point at the bottom. Glue has a pesky tendency to crack overtime. Especially wood glue. And those legs wouldn’t hold up for very long.

    i dno, what do you mean by "beginner"

  4. Jcarlos24 on May 24, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Looks easy when you have the tools and the space to work 😂

  5. Andy Powell on May 24, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Is it just me or does that top look wonky as fuck at 12:08? Also, get that dog a mask! Poor dude

  6. Mark Nasia on May 24, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Very nice, this is what i call working from home, great job!

    Hi Woodworking Guide. I agree with most of the comments on this video. It’s a great project, but simple projects for beginners. The ultimate in misrepresentation. Why not just promote it for what it is rather than try to mislead people who see right through it in seconds. Although, presenting it as you did got you 1.1 million views and 436 comments, which is honey to advertisers. Integrity = 0 Money making = 10

  8. wooley1963 on May 24, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    You really are a beginner, the method of joining pieces together to form the top is ridiculous but more worrying is your total disregard for safety. Please do not copy this you will get hurt !

  9. Tony Wright on May 24, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    LOL starter?

  10. Yak's Feathers & Fur on May 24, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Can’t wait to start my first beginner project

  11. Randy Wallace on May 24, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Who has a mortise and tenon machine as a beginner?

  12. Pedro Jara on May 24, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    no entiendo como teniendo tan buenas herramientas es tan desprolijo……ya quisiera tener esa canteadora y la ingletadora….algun dia

  14. Elton Roberts on May 24, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Very nice 👌

  15. Stephen Dexter on May 24, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    all these expensive planars and jointers for this "beginners" project and you didn’t even use biscuits to join the lumber

  16. Jeremy Hunter on May 24, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    I feel bad only for adding a comment when comments are at 420. Still…

    If this is for "beginners" I’m the Pope.

  18. Karen Baldwin-Porter on May 24, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Not at all for beginners, poor demonstration of safety skills, and poor demonstration of how to build with the tools most beginners would have. Very misleading title.

  19. Mikey on May 24, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    12:11 already crooked 🙁

  20. James Vaught Jr on May 24, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Remember some of us don’t have all that fancy equipment especially beginners like me. So if you show us beginners using the basic tools safely i think you will nail it. Me i have jig saw,circular saw,router,dermal and a dril,impact set oh and clamps lol that’s it. So I turn to the smallish stuff to learn and make money to buy the nicer things.

  21. Pedro Jara on May 24, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    I don’t understand how having such good tools is so messy… I wish I had that edger and the miter saw… one day

    One suggestion, when editing fast forward video, mute your audio so we don’t hear the chipmonks in the background.

  24. Jon Keisler on May 24, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    terrible video and wood working joining technique

  25. Greg Creswell on May 24, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    BEGINNERS DO NOT DO THIS…. Making a desk is a good idea but this is not the way to do it. I like how he has "planed" boards yet one of them is still warped. Also clever idea for joinery but its terrible. You are basically relying on the glue to hold your top together. How do you know those nails didnt just hammer further into the wood when you attached the other piece. Its worth the time and effort to use dowels.

  26. Julie Mombourquette on May 24, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    What beginner has a planer and a jointer

  27. Pvt Stash on May 24, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    So after scrolling thru the comments, I see a trend of two types: One bitching abt his equipment and how it’s not what a typical beginner would use… and the second bitching abt his choices during the process… Just viewing from my fairly basic woodworking experience, both are true. There’s a lot of equipment there that a beginner wouldn’t have, and there’s a lot of choices made that even an intermediate woodworker would have thought twice about. Classic example of buying your way into a trade without properly learning the fundamentals. But then again, this is YouTube and he got paid by us watching it, even to criticize and notice things we wouldn’t do… so kudos. Just use this video as a learning exercise in what not to do, and what tools you REALLY need.

  28. Larry Burton on May 24, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Look on the bright side. He still all his fingers. Surprisingly. Pretty sure all the beginning woodworkers have a saw/planer combo and a mortising machine. Table top will split sooner or later.

  29. Trip Foods on May 24, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Give me a lesson please

  30. Victor Gray on May 24, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Sorry, was busier earlier, but yep, I think Woody is still giving away his woodworking book, but I’m not so sure. I managed to get it go’ogling Woody Hyezmar, and was surprised to see his "Woodworking Bible" up for grabs, hope this helps.

  31. Kaleb Tuaeu on May 24, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Everyone’s a judge Judy in these comments 😬

  32. C M on May 24, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    A few constructive critisms… The table is awfully basic given the tools you have at your disposal. The finish would have been a lot better if you applied my hand instead of spraying it and wasting most of the product. As a wood worker why did you not use dowels or biscuits instead of nails to join the table top? You could have just squared the edges and glued them together without the nails.

    Lastly to the people who are starting out you could build this table with a drill, chisel, hammer, hand saw, wood glue, sandpaper wrapped around a sanding block (or even a block of wood), wood stain applied with a clean rag (have another handy to wipe off any excess stain). A cheap hand held router and bit would allow you to make the table top corners a little fancier but you could just sand the wood and leave the edge as is. Some clamps would be ideal but you could always use screws and sink the heads below the wood surface and hide them with a light coating of wood filler. Or sink screws and then fill the hole with a dowel and some wood glue to hide the screw head.

    Speed square to ensure its all level and a tape measure.

    Honestly wood working with basic hand tools takes a little more time and requires more patience but you can build a lot more than you think. It’s all planning and problem solving. Take your time and enjoy the process!

    a new table for the call center: “Eh’lo? dis is Peter callene frum Amazon…”

  34. John Payne on May 24, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    I can see the joy on the buyer’s face at TK Maxx, thinking of the 500% mark up. Also, the grin on the face of the Romanian car washer when they export it to their brothers for resale in Chechnya.

  35. Владимир Князь on May 24, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Не вороужоным глазом видно, что стол получился винтом.

  36. BestNCBBQ on May 24, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Why are you wearing a mask?

  37. Step lynn on May 24, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    This is not for beginners. 🙁

  38. Chomp on May 24, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Good work, but the way you show how you did it makes it nothing like a project for beginners. If I had a planer, a jointer, bar clamps, etc., I wouldn’t be a beginner. You should live up to the video’s title and showe how to do this with some basic tools, such as a drill, a circular saw, and a chisel. Disliked.

  39. Elizabeth Walker on May 24, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Talk Damn it!

  40. Super Specialty on May 24, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Your kidding us… no PPE, especially when nipping off the nail heads! No subscription hear.

  41. Manuel Hernandez on May 24, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Projects for beginners, yet start by using tools and machines that beginners wouldn’t have! Great!

  42. Davide LoMonaco on May 24, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Beginner? You have a full blown shop smh

  43. Jon Star on May 24, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    All of those “beginner” tools are so cheap and useful. Definitely don’t need advance tools like a mallet

  44. 5676pnut on May 24, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    A beginner video with no audio to explain anything lol……

  45. Максим Роговой on May 24, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    🤔на 12:11 заметно, что столешница винтом.

  46. Liam Shea on May 24, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Do a lot of beginners have planers and jointers?

  47. MndOvrkDrkMtr on May 24, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Great looking desk, but sorry to break it to you but "beginners" likely won’t have most of the tools needed for that. A planer? common

  48. Greg Creswell on May 24, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    This is terrible. Just to start if you’re a beginner with these tools you’re not a beginner.

  49. ivenstein on May 24, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    You always make great work. Love to watch your videos. What brand is the "planer-jointer"? I’m looking for a machine with this size (not too big) and it looks very stable.

  50. Dex D. on May 24, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    His idea of advanced wood working is a CNC machine 🤣
