    I always carry toothpicks in my tool bag works for everything from door hinges and latches to pulls on drawer fronts to toilet paper holder not matching the template in the box. Older guy I learned it from carried an old bag of golf tees and toothpicks said they are you best friend when you need them which isn’t often but when you need them they’re there everytime.

  6. Larry Hutcherson Sr on March 14, 2022 at 5:16 pm

  7. Staff Jenerette on March 14, 2022 at 5:17 pm

    Hey Bourbon… Great thing about the about keeping the grain in mind, when your building. I can, and do, appreciate that!
    Keep up the good work, You have good channel you’ve created here. It’s informative, along with some slapstick, and your own brand of dry humor…

    Hi there….. just wanted to add to your segment half way through your piece on tips and tricks concerning the expansion and contraction of wood that has been plain sawn (the example of the piece of pine you used). I once knew a fellow who built a 9,000 sf house and used as flooring plain sawn Black Walnut. After a couple of years of living in the house and a few wet and dry seasons the floor expanded and contracted to the point that you could put a credit card between each and every piece of flooring it had actually expanded to the point that the floor pushed out in the summer and actually pushed the walls out then started to buckle, (I do not know the moisture %). To say the least it all had to be replaced. Short aside, the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC, finished in 1895 , the largest private home in the US with 175,000 sq. feet has a floor without any cracks, splits or separations (that I saw). And the reason is the entire structure had a quarter sawn white oak floor finished with turpentine and boiled linseed oil. As explained in the video (plain sawn) any wood expands and contracts left and right and there is nothing you can do about it. By deciding on using quarter sawn white oak the issue of expansion and contraction becomes moot. Quarter sawn wood expands up and down because it is cut 90 degrees to the annual rings. The floor moves up and down which of course you cannot see. George Vanderbilt once owned the entire Pisgah National Forest, some 125,000 acres so he had plenty of wood to choose from. I doubled the size of my older home kitchen and used quarter sawn white oak wherein the rest of the house was done in plain sawn red oak when built in 1953. The difference is phenomenal. Besides being practical, the process of quarter sawning produces the most beautiful pattern, usually called rays, some people refer to it as "tiger stripe".

    What is the best way to create a woodshop table
    4’x8′ so it will stay flat ?? Also, You are totally hilarious. I like to watch your show.

  10. Secoba Airways on March 14, 2022 at 5:21 pm

    Why all the clowning around? Do you not think that your content is sufficient to keep people interested? I actually found your content to be very good but its value is diluted by the fact that you clearly don’t take it seriously. Less will be more, try it.

  11. Randal Heying on March 14, 2022 at 5:23 pm

    Its a digital calipers Jason. Not a micrometer.

  12. David Bremner on March 14, 2022 at 5:23 pm

    Thank you Jason you are a mind of information and a really good joiner. Take care with all those stunts🤗

  13. Ron on March 14, 2022 at 5:23 pm

    Great video. Love his energy and also great tips. Digital caliper vs Micrometer could be an important distinction. Semantics, depending on industry, but coming from automotive, the names are definitely different. Keep it up bro, well done

  14. daveawb on March 14, 2022 at 5:25 pm

    Best bit of advice in this video is how to jump ‘elegantly’ from step ladders. The knife scoring and the chop saw fence are golden though, can’t tell you how many times I’ve scored a line with to much pressure and it’s followed the grain.

  15. Gary Pillischafske on March 14, 2022 at 5:26 pm

    Hey guy, get rid of the butane lighter! It’s equivalent to 1/2 stick of dynamite if it blows. It’s happend and killed some folks who were welding with one in their pocket. Be safe, love your content!!

  16. Jacob Willumsen on March 14, 2022 at 5:26 pm

    “He has small nips” 🤣🤣🤣

  17. Steve Bailey on March 14, 2022 at 5:26 pm

    “He has small nips?” Really? 😜

  18. Lowell-James Hicks on March 14, 2022 at 5:27 pm

    Power miter saw. Chop saw has abrasive blade for cutting metal.

  19. Mark Nikolich on March 14, 2022 at 5:28 pm

    Even though I do learn a lot, my favorite part of your videos is the sillinesses. Thanks for keeping it fun and educational!

  20. AurelShen on March 14, 2022 at 5:29 pm

    Just one more tip : never let your other hand in the japan saw trajectory…
    I spent my 31st december at the hospital for that… and I thumb is still a mess :/

  21. Rick Jones on March 14, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    No drama but Vernier calliper 🤣

  22. arawtgabi on March 14, 2022 at 5:32 pm

    I came for the tips but stayed for the personality.

  23. Ryan Swain on March 14, 2022 at 5:32 pm

    Is that a Rocky Mountain hunting calls bugle in the background?

  24. Jamie Lloyd on March 14, 2022 at 5:32 pm

    I’ve just now started doing some very beginning woodworking things in my garage. I just had to take a minute to let you know I really really enjoy watching your videos and I’ve learned so much already and I can’t wait to learn more as you keep posting videos. Thank you for all your effort in the videos you post, quality of content, etc. 10/10 sir!

  25. Vanessa Higdon on March 14, 2022 at 5:33 pm

    Love your info but the silliness is almost too much. Very knowledgeable about the subject though.

  26. Andrew Bennett on March 14, 2022 at 5:37 pm

    Siskabob skewers are about ⅛ inch diameter, a little bigger than tooth picks. I don’t know the diameter of Q-Tips. I haven’t seen wood Q-Tips for years. You can also spend all afternoon whittling custom plugs for your hole repair 🙂 .

  27. Brenda Brooks on March 14, 2022 at 5:39 pm

    OMG I freaking Love you, you’ve got me laughing out loud on my lunch at my desk!!!! Keep up the great tips and funny antics <3

  28. Jeffery Barton on March 14, 2022 at 5:41 pm

    What brand is your mitre saw. A festool

  29. Kyle K on March 14, 2022 at 5:42 pm

    love the funny stuff you do in every video

  30. Bryan Martin on March 14, 2022 at 5:43 pm

    I wound up watching the entrance so many times that I forgot there was actually a video I wanted to watch.

  31. ObiWanShinobi1 on March 14, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    CA= cyano acetate?

  32. Barry Litchfield on March 14, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    The Three Stooges style theatrics are not adding much to your video. Otherwise, good information. Thanks for sharing.

  33. Tanner A on March 14, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    PSA: Don’t clean out your ears with q-tips

  34. Glenn Linnertz on March 14, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    Great tips. Just useful things that I never thought of.

  35. Chris Adamson on March 14, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    Or just use a Band Saw…

  36. MKRM27 on March 14, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    I wonder what these useful tips were? I couldn’t watch this guy for more than one minute

  37. Theo FarmManager on March 14, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    I just remember when I could do those opening gymnastics.

  38. Bluegill20 on March 14, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    Tried to watch this video but Dam!!! Annoying AF

  39. Don F on March 14, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    19:20 You’re the first person I’ve seen who keeps a picture of his supervisor on his phone.
    Can’t blame you though. Adorable little fellow.

  40. rerod on March 14, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    What is with the childish antics? You have some good information but you act like your audience members are in kindergarten. Kind of like Blue’s Clues for woodworkers.

  41. Matthew Marstall on March 14, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    Couldn’t you skip the clamps on the sacrificial fence and use the painters tape and CA glue tip?

  42. Dale Weller on March 14, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    You are talking about wasting time, your videos are 50% knowledge and 50% BS and I end up falling asleep. Please fix.

  43. Joe Browne on March 14, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    Good carpenter,terrible at slapstick! Thanks for the tips.

  44. Gary R Robinson on March 14, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    tooth picks both round and flat work real well for filling a hole that was misplaced

  45. nate2838 on March 14, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    The "how to cut small pieces" isn’t so much a tip (which it also is) as it is a "how to keep all your fingers" safety advice. Honestly, if you haven’t already, i would, i would (leave it in this video as well, of course) make that its own video "how to keep your fingers when using a chop saw" or something similar.

    Thank you for sharing your tips with us.

  46. Wade B. on March 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Repeat view….repeat thumbs up

  47. Edward Arata on March 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    What’s with the theatrics?

  48. DOM on March 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    way to stick those landings

  49. Robert Bateman on March 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Great tips! your antics remind me of ……. Blank Man!

  50. gizongas on March 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Um…that video looked like it hurt.
