My name is Matt Estlea, I’m a 22 year old Woodworker from Basingstoke in England and my aim is to make your woodworking less s***.

I come from 5 years tuition at Rycotewood Furniture Centre and 4 years experience working at Axminster Tools and Machinery where I still currently work on weekends. During the week, I film woodworking projects, tutorials, reviews and a viewer favourite ‘Tool Duel’ where I compare two cometitive manufacturers tools against one another to find out which is best.

I like to have a laugh and my videos are quite fast paced BUT you will learn a lot, I assure you.

Lets go make a mess.

  1. Surprised you didn't have a chisel here or a plane. Come to think of it I cannot think of much of any projects that I would call "fine woodworking" wherein I only used hand tools, but only used 5 if you're including all of the measuring/marking tools like this.

  2. Matt Estlea – Did you make the marking knife handle you have? Otherwise where did you buy it? The amazon link is a piece of doody.

  3. That Knew Concept Fret saw is being advertised as £72.00 on amazon while it’s cheaper on eBay £68.30 free shipping…..someone should look into this !

  4. Hi Matt, im going to be getting one of the Fret saws base on your recommendation but i have a couple of questions. One; i noticed they ship it with a skip tooth blade and stock a lot more blades for it, do you know what blades are best for cutting out dovetails ect, honestly don't know anything about different blades and my other question is, is there a easier way to ask you questions about tools ect other then commenting on i video? Many thanks and keep up the great work

  5. I'm a Sunday carpenter and recently I've bought Gyokucho Dotsuki 370 and 372 then I find some interesting thing.

    370 and 372 have same blade thickness of 0.3 mm but different tooth set-width/pitch, so they have bit different sawing feel.

    370: set width 0.46 mm, tooth pitch 1.0 mm/T
    372: set width 0.52 mm, tooth pitch 1.3 mm/T
    370 says it's just "胴突(=doutsuki, means "having some stiff back")" on the package while 372 says not only "dotsuki" but also "縦挽" which
    means "for ripping".

    1. When crosscutting, 370 has a bit smoother feel than 372, but actual cut with is almost identical (370 is slightly narrower than 372, due to its narrower set width of 0.46 mm).

    2. When ripping, 372 is clearly smoother than 370. Surprisingly, not only that, the actual cut width of 372 is "NARROWER" than that of 370 even 372 has a wider set width; it's a mystery of sawing world.

    3. If you want just one saw for tenoning, I recommend 372 rather than 370 because I think 372 is bit more versatile. If you are a tool enthusiast, it's not the case and just buy both.

  6. Hey Matt.
    The videos are awesome. There is no need to jump around like you're leading a parade with a baton man. We can't even see the items, they're just a blur. JK, I wish I had you're youthful energy again. Seriously though, lay off the Jolt before filming.

  7. I recently moved & decided building my dining room table was less expensive than buying it. I took woodshop in high school & have 9yrs of working with wood (musical instrument repair) but I must admit a lot has escaped me. A few days into my build I stumbled upon your vids & the info helped a lot. Now to start chairs.

  8. Hey man, love your channel. Suggest you also add affiliate links to Amazon Germany…asuming you get your fair share and I can support you using those links

  9. Hi Matt. We are glad you are enjoying the Swann Morton blades, thanks for featuring them in your review. We are the exclusive distributor for the Swann Morton craft blades in the US. We would love for you to replace the broken Amazon link above with ours. https://csartsandcraftsproducts.com/ Thanks!
