    I see here the perfect argument for the new workshop : "listen honey you see that i can’t work in normal condition around here… i truly need this backyard shop i’ve be talking about!"

  2. J.D. on January 26, 2023 at 3:22 am

    Damn, looks like my basement. Mine only smaller. Never have enough glue clamps.

  3. Matt Elias on January 26, 2023 at 3:23 am

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who mumble-talks to the wood, the tools, and myself. I swear a lot more, though.

  4. Matt Evans-Koch on January 26, 2023 at 3:23 am

    Those are some nice slab table tops James. For a minute there I thought you were making a huge split top table. I think you need a bigger shop.
    PS. Your shop looks like about the same organized chaos as mine. Have a great week.

  5. R. Parker on January 26, 2023 at 3:24 am

    Any particular reason you clamp the table top in the vise for jointing the edges, rather than clamp it to the face of the bench? Standing on that stool seems a good way to lose power and risk falling over when jointing a long edge.

  6. Brandon the Builder on January 26, 2023 at 3:24 am

    You should have a plumber come out and check your feet, they look clogged.

  7. Joseph Lorentzen on January 26, 2023 at 3:25 am

    I cut a straight line. Well, it was a straight line on the side of the board I was looking at. It was slanted and wandered like a drunken sailor on the other side. I admire your skills, but it is to the table saw if I want a straight cut on both the facing side and the other for me.

  8. Mic van Reijen on January 26, 2023 at 3:29 am

    Clamps.. never enough, unless you’re looking for a place to park your thingymebob for a bit, then those stupid clamps are in the way again. So any n clamps is 1 clamp short of what you need and n-1 too many at the same time.
    They must have fallen out of the Tardis some time ago..

  9. Scott Forsyth on January 26, 2023 at 3:32 am

    It’s a fact of nature. You can never have enough clamps. 😂 so true!

  10. Brandon Woodworkers Club on January 26, 2023 at 3:33 am

    Something relaxing about watching a card scraper in action. Nice work James!

  11. Hansenomics on January 26, 2023 at 3:34 am

    Buck saw the trend.

  12. Ezekiel Brockmann on January 26, 2023 at 3:34 am

    This is hilarious.
    Funniest thing I’ve seen in years!
    Good laughs, thank you.

  13. Frank B on January 26, 2023 at 3:36 am

    You sure can split a pencil line. Kudos

  14. Robert C. Augustine on January 26, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Your skill is worth the comment to help the algorithm.

  15. Myra Wright on January 26, 2023 at 3:36 am

    Red Oak! The choice of your Dad for sure!
    Pretty!! ❤️😁

  16. Chuck Barnett on January 26, 2023 at 3:38 am

    Inspiring stuff!

  17. Karl Alan on January 26, 2023 at 3:39 am

    Seems like mostly good choices in this one.

  18. Yaşar Mevlütoğlu on January 26, 2023 at 3:41 am

    Мастер наверное очень любит голубой цвет 👍👍👍🇹🇷

  19. FrankPace54 on January 26, 2023 at 3:44 am

    Watching you work is pure torture

  20. MrDaneBrammage on January 26, 2023 at 3:45 am

    A braver man than I to stand on a wooden stool in wooden shoes while holding a sharp tool.

  21. Silent H Woodworks on January 26, 2023 at 3:45 am

    I really like the format. I’m happily a combination woodworker, but enjoy seeing your skill in a cliff notes package that I can watch when I happen across some free time. Keep up the great work!

  22. Vasileios Bitas on January 26, 2023 at 3:46 am

    This is fantastic work, and great pleasure to watch. Not trying ot be obtuse, but your plane irons sound like they could use some sharpening. Or is it the nature of working with red oak? I’ve been mainly working with cherry adn some walnut, and the harmonics sounded a bit off. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  23. robslifting4life on January 26, 2023 at 3:46 am

    Does each video take a month to make?

  24. James Smith on January 26, 2023 at 3:47 am

    Harbor freight does have f style bar clamps that are long I really love cause how light they are, I can put several on one side without it tipping 😂 compared to other brands

  25. Edward Tagg on January 26, 2023 at 3:47 am

    Parallel clamps are not well suited to extreme forces necessary for laminating strength. They have other uses, for minor bench holding, and for keeping ends of boards together. Large G clamps or sliding Bessey clamps exert much more pressure.

  26. Stanley Smith on January 26, 2023 at 3:48 am

    Just watched an older video of yours where you showed the Stanley 45. I have one I would like to sell. It probably needs a fine tuning, but it is all in there. Also have two older planes I would include. If you know someone looking for one just let me know. I would like to trade for a Triton Router 1.2 HP 880 amps. Probably an unusual request, but that is how we get anywhere in life. You probably don’t know but I have been a long- time subscriber.

  27. Bernard H Van Engen on January 26, 2023 at 3:49 am

    Good video, but I am still expecting some explanation about the bad choises 🤔

  28. Cameron F on January 26, 2023 at 3:49 am

    I love the sound of hand saws in the afternoon. 👌🏼

  29. gary Castens on January 26, 2023 at 3:50 am

    the ones with the board

  30. Roger Miller on January 26, 2023 at 3:50 am

    I work in my shop by myself.
    Sometimes it’s good to work with someone.
    Then I turn on a Wright video

  31. Karl Alan on January 26, 2023 at 3:53 am

    Watching that first glue up, I was thinking "how does he put that much glue on both sides & not have a slippy mess of extra glue pour out when he’s clamping?"…then I saw.

  32. Jim Hyslop on January 26, 2023 at 3:54 am

    That first glue up had more drips than a toddler’s ice cream cone on a hot day! 😀

  33. Confiscated Zyra on January 26, 2023 at 3:56 am

    if your wife is doing all the editing and shooting she’s getting damn good at this. whats crazy is the only thing i’ll buy from harbor freight is clamps lol. i accumulated quite a few ratcheting clamps. its either $4 at hf or … $33 at lowes/home depot 🤔

  34. JRK on January 26, 2023 at 3:57 am

    damn I love frame saws

  35. Matthew Chavez on January 26, 2023 at 4:00 am

    I love the thumbnail with the sparkle on your clogs!

  36. MC's Creations on January 26, 2023 at 4:00 am

    Pretty amazing work, James! 😃
    I’m really curious to see the joinery you’re going to use!
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊

  37. MarkNiceyard on January 26, 2023 at 4:01 am

    What were the bad choices?

  38. Nanomachinist on January 26, 2023 at 4:01 am

    Have you seen the enhancement Paul Sellers makes to those HF clamps by cutting stock to size and inserting them in the clamps’ channels? Worked amazingly well for me.

    Also as soon as you said red oak, I felt like a dog with its hackles raised in response to a threat. I’d rather work Hickory.

  39. Corey Evans on January 26, 2023 at 4:02 am

    Not gonna lie, I assumed you were gonna break the table top when you got on top of it because of the video title.

  40. Victor Perez on January 26, 2023 at 4:02 am

    Great content!

  41. Levi Lam on January 26, 2023 at 4:05 am

    Why not move the bar clamps to near the edge, and use them as the cauls… and you can buy 4x4s…. you wear my out just watching you saw boards…

  42. James Smith on January 26, 2023 at 4:09 am

    James,
    H.F. tools get all of us started, no shame, but that ugly plane with a lazy low blade now that is pure shame.
    Hope the rest of the build videos are posted soon, please.

  43. Uncle Jason's Workshop on January 26, 2023 at 4:14 am

    Oh, yeah. You totes need a bigger shop.

  44. Paul on January 26, 2023 at 4:14 am

    how much actual time passed in the first 1:44 of this video? keep up the good work!

  45. Amílcar De León T. on January 26, 2023 at 4:15 am

    En lo personal, aprecio tanto la calidad de tu trabajo como tu sentido del humor. La alegría de crear le agrega valor al proyecto.

  46. Laura M on January 26, 2023 at 4:18 am

    I have never used a card scraper, is there a chance that it could make a small "bowl" if it isn’t held right, or hits a soft spot in the wood?

  47. gary Castens on January 26, 2023 at 4:19 am

    what’s the blue wood clamps info could you send me that?

  48. Roger Miller on January 26, 2023 at 4:20 am

    8 legs, 8 skirts, 8 tops. A lot of work.
    Female Spyder?

  49. astrophys on January 26, 2023 at 4:20 am

    I agree with this table.
