MORE Secret Tips the Woodworking Pros Won't Tell You!

There is no substitute for working with seasoned, not term Woodworking Professionals and Carpenters, they work so smoothly and all that I have worked with a very adept at what they do from Finish Carpenters to Boat Builders they all have their tricks of the trade and use things they have on hand for innovative uses like Carpenter’s levels as measuring sticks, Paraffin wax to make tools glide over the wood on everything from hand saws, to table saws, jointers, planers and even wooden drawer glides, then using an ordinary chisel as a marking skew for super-accurate marking and all sorts of other creative ideas in today’s woodworking class!

    doesn’t the wax coat the wood, preventing varnish cohesion?

    Another good useful video young man, nice to see you in 22, (Can we have the whiskers trimmed a little thanks…LOL.)

  4. Hugh Templeton on January 13, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    Fantastic video thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Clem McGuinness on January 13, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Love that level technique, very useful indeed

  6. Hansang Bae on January 13, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I’ve tried a number of those T-squares for drywall use. And I’ve found them to be 1/16 or so off. Which is fine for drywall, you’re going to mud it anyway, but would be problematic for woodworking. The smaller ones like the one Collin is using is probably OK. The bigger aluminum ones, not so much. And I’m not just talking about cheap Chinese knockoffs.

    subscriber hint… store drill bits pointy end down, saves finger cuts

  8. Bill Smith on January 13, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I really enjoy your tips. As I work these tips get used and are helpful.

  9. Billy on January 13, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    But they told you ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  10. Graham Rankin on January 13, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    Thanks for the tips

  11. michael szyjka on January 13, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    looks like the t square i got with my drafting kit freshman year in high school 55 years ago.

  12. CAD Thunkin on January 13, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Ok, that marking the level trick is gold. Why did I never think of that? (we know)

  13. Stinger45 on January 13, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Good to know. Thank you.

  14. Mike Walton on January 13, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    great stuff, thanks for sharing your knowledge๐Ÿ‘

  15. SgtMarty on January 13, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    What do you mean "pros won’t tell you"? Click-baity titles are BS. Love your vids otherwise.

  16. ron5935 on January 13, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    I still use my T square exactly like yours from 8 th grade in1955. Good for picture mats used in framing also. I admit to being a pack rat

  17. PIETJE PUK on January 13, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    Secret pros tips? use them for all my life , never learned them, if you are not stupid this is just common sense ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ aaah ,common sense ,the magic word a lot of ”people ” don’t have it no more nowadays ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

  18. Peter Aldino on January 13, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    I’m showing my age telling you we used to use our wax paper sandwich bags to slick the slides on our playground in elementary school ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. fireworxz on January 13, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Thanks

  20. Jb B on January 13, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Great tips Collin! Thanks for posting

  21. Jacob Ashton on January 13, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    brilliant stuff yet again!

  22. R. L. Poston on January 13, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    Paraffin also works well on knives, chisels, answer circular saw blades.

  23. Moosey on January 13, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Interesting that so many people have not heard these, my shop teacher in 5th grade must have been exceptional.

  24. Franks DIY on January 13, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    I had forgotten about the Paraffin wax. Thanks Again for the tips Collin

  25. Festus171 on January 13, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Great tips as usual Colin! My dad did lots of cabinetry and marine carpentry and he used paraffin or old bars of soap to lubricate screws before putting them in. Apparently, the friction melted the wax and allowed the screws to go in easy, but once in place the hardened wax held just like glue. The soap was good too, but probably less adhesive. I use paraffin on all the places you mentioned in the video. It makes everything a bit easier!

  26. Erik The Viking on January 13, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    Wax works wonders on table saws. Add a bit of paste wax and it made the sawing a lot smoother!

  27. Serge_msv on January 13, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    :))

  28. Lee on January 13, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    My dad used to use a block of beeswax on saws and also on wood screws/other threads. I inherited his old block of beeswax in a peanut butter jar. It will probably last my entire life, I treasure it.

  29. Kenneth Spengler on January 13, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Great tips.

  30. Greg Halford on January 13, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    nice tips.

  31. Journeyman Traveller on January 13, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    Natural candle waxes like beeswax and Paraffin wax can be used. Maybe also soy and palm? Can apply to nails and screws as well as saws and planes.

  32. Eric S on January 13, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    The parafin also works great on a playground side

  33. Ronald Hineman on January 13, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    Great tips ๐Ÿ‘

  34. M.A.R. Services on January 13, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    I will use the level tip for hanging pictures with two hook points on the back, then transfer to the wall. Thanks

  35. Pierre Shakes on January 13, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    Excellent ideas
    Thank you for sharing

  36. Wallace Sheckells on January 13, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    Colin, thank you for sharing your tips. I look at these tips and say to myself, that was an Obvious little trick…

  37. MKRM27 on January 13, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    I have an inaccurate t-square, so not sure why he thinks theyโ€™re alway accurate

  38. A B on January 13, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    very useful, thankyou.

  39. Mama C on January 13, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    My Dad was a carpenter for over 50 years – the man never owned a tape measure. He used folding rules only. He carried one in the top pocket of his bibs, right under his chin at all times! I found a dozen of them in his garage when he told me to clean it out. Each of my sisters took one, and the rest are hanging in my shop.

  40. Tim Driscoll on January 13, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    As an old time draftsman I can tell you that a T-square is never exactly 90 degrees. All you work is relative to the arm of the square and not the edge of the drafting table. Iโ€™ve had T-squares way off square and it doesnโ€™t affect your work as long as itโ€™s aligned to the arm. Just sayinโ€™. Cheers.

  41. Cody the Collector on January 13, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Nice tips, paraffin wax can also help with stuck bolts and nuts. Heat up the bolt or nut and allow the wax to melt into the fastener. Once it cools it should come right off.

  42. MrBill0523 on January 13, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Great hints Colin! Happy New Year!

  43. MrRickoscar on January 13, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    you are a Pro.

  44. Don Dieu on January 13, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    How about a question? I’m wanting to build some shelves for my records (Kallax doesn’t fit my space). Should I use 3/4 play or MDF, and what screws are best?

  45. Mike Thompson on January 13, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Love the tricks. But Iโ€™m a beekeeper so I use beeswax, but I do have paraffin too.
    Have a great day

  46. I Love Taylor Swift on January 13, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Love the T-Square. I may get one of those! Also, the paraffin wax looks very good too.

  47. Jim Black on January 13, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    I love the idea of using a level as a marking tool. Wish I had seen this 40 years ago!

  48. murphymb on January 13, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    T-square, "never seen one that wasn’t accurate", until it gets dropped on it’s head and most don’t wait for that. Most sheet-rock squares are not precise but you need to know how to check them. Interesting title, most pro woodworkers are happy to share their tips. A lot of "most’s" in my comment. Mostly accurate ๐Ÿ˜‰

  49. Hey Stripes on January 13, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    that level/tape marking idea is fantastic. I just hung three framed photos and that would have cut my time down considerably… I’ll use that one going forward! Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. Jon Duchon on January 13, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Great tips!
