    Leah, youโ€™re my hero! My husband passed away and left a shop full of intimidating tools but you have taught me so much I spent the summer building a chicken coop! Itโ€™s not perfect but Iโ€™m kinda proud of myself for finishing it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

  24. Gairman on January 9, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    A router would make a smoother notch with no chiseling…most beginners have a router.

  25. Carl Hearn on January 9, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Centering jig… So much aggravation and so much ruined wood because I’d never even heard of one of those before.

  49. Haharu Records on January 9, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    This method i can become a fourarm

  50. Arthur Danielles on January 9, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    I’m not a fan of this practice of using a circular saw etc to cut lap joints but then I am old school in using the saw to cut the two leading cuts and then using a decent set of chisels to chisel out the remainder and often it takes a sizeable chunk of the wood in layers removing it fairly quickly with the final smoothing of the remainder to make a really good tight joint. With a decent set of chisels it takes the wood residue out I think in some instances faster than using the circular saw..? I agree it probably is good if you have a large number of cuts (joints) to make.. but! ๐Ÿ‘€
