    Blah, blah, blah

    Great video! Thanks so much!!!!

    Loved the comment about sticking with the imperial system of measurements, and it reminded me of a video by an Australian comic – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDUt-Kbxqsg

    You need a patron. Our if you have one, links to it in the description.

    – If gluing up narrow boards, you can add wide boards as spacers to the beginning and end of your setup. This will put the narrow strips in that pressure cone of influence.
    – when edge routing inside and outside of a project (think picture frame) the inner edge should be cut clockwise and the outside counterclockwise. No fun mnemonic device, but never-the-less

    We use freedom units here !

    The drill bit setup with a table saw is great, but my experience has been to butt the end of the bit up to the top tooth of the blade rather than laying it along side. No gap that way.

  7. Michael Clark on March 31, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Actually very good advice and best yet none are saying we need to buy expensive parts for a specific use to do it. Thanks.

    Just found your channel, and subscribed as soon as I saw the plethora of Star Wars puns. Love it. Keep up the great content

  9. Karsten Küpper on March 31, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Why don’t you use the metric system? It’s superior in every way?

  10. Jack Cooper on March 31, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Agree with you, Sir.
    Couldn’t care any less for the metric system. I guess there’s a few find it difficult applying third grade math skills.

  11. richard slater on March 31, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Excellent. I love the really quick all info, no filler style. Great tips too.

  12. mrtuffcooky on March 31, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    I like it. I like it. I like it a lot. 😁 thanks!

  13. fredio54 on March 31, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    I tried to set my table saw up at 9/64" depth of cut repeatedly but kept failing and setting it to 3.57124mm every single time – super annoying.

  14. Arthur Griffin on March 31, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Hey man just saying we miss your shop demonstrations too.

  15. Marcelo Cosi on March 31, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Each flying V makes a 90 degree angle. NOT 45.

  16. Neda Nother on March 31, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    I think that we should be able to agree these days that Imperial measurements are flat out better and more intuitive…based on halves which are infinitely easier to visualize. It’s not as easy to do math with…plain and simple….suck it up buttercups, everything isn’t easy but it should be effective and imperial is more effective. Damn euro’s…just kidding, love you guys and your wrong sided cars.

  17. Bubba Franks on March 31, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Loved the bit about people who think in fractions. I’m a CNC guy who use decimals and calipers to measure. I got insane amounts of pushback from the new woodworking company that I started working for when all of my blueprints were handed out to the shop with numbers such as 2.3125 on them and they had no idea what 2.3125 was. While I personally despise having to count the lines on a tape measure to find out if I just made a good part, they are so used to doing it, they don’t even have to count the lines.

  18. InaZeaAnaZazi on March 31, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    the best thing about the imperial system is that if you need half or double of a fraction, you can just say 9/32 instead of 9/64 or similar. I mean, I still use the metric system, cause I’m from Europe, but the fact that the imperial system works with fractions IS helpful.

  19. E M R on March 31, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    Very well done!! Your best upload yet!!

    tip when setting the disk sander at 90 butt 2 pieces of scrap side by side and sand the ends, then butt the sanded ends together, if there is a gap top or bottom your not square. adjust the table until you have no gap and you will be dead on. works on the band and table saw also

  22. ezyfnef on March 31, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Oi, 9/64ths these nuts 🤣🤣🤣. Great vid. Learned a lot.

  23. Tania Costa on March 31, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Don’t let Disney see your t-shirts 😉

  24. Fredrik Einmo on March 31, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    FFS try the metric system for once, then you’ll have precise measurements every time

  25. Joshua Fraser on March 31, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Imperial is the limpest thing on earth

  26. Daniel DaPonte on March 31, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    These are great!

  27. Caleb Cowan on March 31, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    The imperial reference and WOWS scene was perfect.

  28. Mama C on March 31, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Teachers in the US tried to tell students over 50 years ago that we HAD to learn metric. And there were threats to make us learn metric, my personal favorite being, “You won’t know what you’re doing!” – all I could think of was, “I won’t, or you won’t???”

    Yeah, don’t worry about it – we’re not changing. If we were, it would’ve happened a long time ago. 😉

  29. Bobby Adamo on March 31, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Useful tips ! Abolish the metric system. lol

  30. Timothy Eldridge on March 31, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Your "clamp 45 degree" statement is bologna ole’ boy !

  31. Keith Mealy on March 31, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    I will occasionally use metric when it makes my life easier. It’s a lot easier to divide 33 cm in into thirds than it is 13 inches. I have a friend that’s a retired pattern-maker for a tool manufacturer. He said that plans were often in thousandths and he had to memorize sixty-fourths decimal values. The company he worked for was bought by a Japanese company and they converted to metric for all their work. Other than needing to purchase a new set of shrink rules, he said it made life much easier. (a shrink rule is unique to every kind of metal being cast and is calibrated so that if you make a pattern using it, once the metal is cast and cools, it shrinks to the stated dimension).

    I have seen that 45 degree clamping guide many times. It can depend some on the "stiffness" of he material.

  32. JeanMi on March 31, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    For the cutting board glue up (or any glue up with thin pieces) in case you don’t have enough clamp you can add some boards between the clamp and what you are glueing up it can help spread the clamping pressure.

  33. Jonny S on March 31, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Clamps have 2 sides. So shouldn’t there be 2 sets of flying vs? Or is that not how physics works?

  34. The Evening Woodworker on March 31, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Great Video Jon! I love the RH rule trick as well as the drill bit "setup blocks"…gotta try those. Keep up the good work!

  35. Jordan Miller on March 31, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    4:47 hit home hard. Same here buddy 🤣

  36. Monte Glover on March 31, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Place a length of straight angle against the rip fence twice the length of the board to be straightened place the points of the board against the angle and rip the board straight.

  37. Mainer DIY on March 31, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Very helpful tips. Thanks for these

  38. poptartdestroyer on March 31, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    As someone who’s fairly new to woodworking, thank you for taking the time to do this. This is super helpful and I’m glad I’m learning these tips early on. Love your videos bro!

  39. Christopher Frew on March 31, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Blown away by the drill bit thing. Brilliant.

  40. J C on March 31, 2022 at 7:07 pm


  41. Joshua Gonzalez on March 31, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    1. Love your videos. I actually find myself laughing out loud.
    2. Worth noting that the clamping force is beign exerted by BOTH jaws of the clamp, so you were gonna be fine without adding more, since the fixed jaws would be casting Vs that would capture the joints from the other side.

  42. RICKSWIZZLE on March 31, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Great videos mate. I don’t know why it took me so long to find your channel

  43. antipodesman on March 31, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Do you really want loose drill bits rolling around your work space?🤥

  44. Marco Dhaene on March 31, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Some very handy tips here. Especially the router direction. For some reason I always think out loud, argue with myself, chose the wrong direction and argue some more with myself. My wife questions my sanity sometimes (often) and I can’t blame her.
    Not to be a wiseguy here, but… are you using metal drill bits for drilling into wood or does it only appear that way?
    Thanks for sharing!

  45. Andrew Brown on March 31, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Great video~! I love the Star Wars shop theme too. The right-hand rule for router direction is perfect~! Now I just have to remember it. Thanks much~!

  46. bllourias on March 31, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Nice tips!

  47. Robert Bankhead on March 31, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    This is the best dang video! Great tips, especially the drill bit portion. Your usual dry humor was a bit less but content was great. Thanks again for the time and effort that goes into making this content, well worth the view (uh re re re reviewing)

  48. Chris Moody on March 31, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    I liked that tip using a drill bit to gauge blade height.

  49. Michael Buchanan on March 31, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Great tips! I just started dabbling in carpentry less than a year ago so this stuff is gold. Since allot of the tools are expensive, any tips that keep me from having to buy even more tools when I can’t really afford it.

  50. Kyle on March 31, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Every single one of these blew my freaking mind. Also, I want all your merch. Also, your sense of humor is spot on.
