  1. The most important first tool is an iPad so you can learn how to use all the others, or is that just me?

    I have to say I never realised how important (and enjoyable) chisels and planes are, and how crucial learning to sharpen is. Even though I have a bandsaw (well will have tomorrow) and table saw I like using back saws, especially my 14” tenon saw and my gents saw. Though because of disabilities I’m not a lover of my rip saw. I also have a Japanese flush saw and larger cross cut saw, these are so easy for a newbie to use very accurately. I think if I was fit enough I would have gone all hand tools.

    I have to say I really like your videos, they are instructional with a nice dash of humour.

  2. My boy, the Facebook link in the end really got me… so this IS a rather recent Video looking and sounding like it is from the 90s….

  3. Interesting presentation, AND You Can Dance Too.

  4. The impact driver is one of my new favorite tools that I recently got. But like you said, there are tools for the right job. Impact driver is good to drive long screws. For short screws that don't need to be pressed deeply into the wood or doesn't need any additional force to get it into the wood, a drill type that will rotate the screw to go into the wood, should suffice.
