These days there’s no shortage of information out there for woodworkers that just wasn’t available when I were a lad. Unless you had college training you either had to dip into books, enrol in an evening class or work it out for yourself. Early instructional videos could be painful to watch, a fast track to an afternoon nap, and even now some YouTube demos can be a bit dodgy. A happy exception is Peter Sefton’s series of Fine Furniture Making DVDs, which are professional and certainly absorbing. Admittedly this is the first one I’ve watched, but if preceding discs are of the same standard (Andy King assures me they are), then you may want to reserve the DVD player for an evening or two.
