55 – Woodworking 101 FREE ONLINE COURSE LESSON 1 Part 2 of 8 The Drill

This is LESSON 1 Part 2 of 8 “The Drill” of our free 16 week woodworking 101 online course.

Lesson number one is a basic introduction to the tools needed for woodworking. Since it is a long video we have broken it down into 8 conveniently short parts.

This segment covers The Drill.

This is a specifically designed curriculum created to teach all of the essentials of woodworking to take someone with no knowledge to the level of a moderately experienced woodworker. The entire course is free and will be posted online. During the course we will also be practicing our newly developed skills by building projects. We will provide plans for all course projects free on our website.

The course will cover a comprehensive introduction to all necessary woodworking tools, lumber selection, adhesives, joinery, building methods, styles, sanding, finish prep, final finish, and much more…

  1. Great information and very clearly presented. Thank you for doing these. I am a beginner and you have kept me glued (pardon the pun) to the screen..

  2. I bought some of the self-centering bits for drilling holes for skateboard trucks and they gave the best patterns I've ever done (drilling through the trucks). And since they have the sleeve, they don't damage the trucks, either. Next I'm going to try making small, centered holes with the self-centering bit and then making the actual size hole with the brad point bits.

  3. James, you have a fine set of tutorials here. Thanks for your eloquent and thorough lessons.

    With regard to this one about drills I would make these minor suggestions for additional comments by you if you intend to ever edit these;

    I’d recommend the person always go with Lithium Ion batteries and tools over NiCads or any other type. They are lighter, don’t retain a memory, last far longer and recharge much faster.

    Suggest they find a brand of cordless power tool they are happy with and a battery size that will accommodate the jobs they do. Why buy 20v or larger batteries if you never do jobs that need that much power and stamina. Those larger batteries are heavy and more expensive. 18 and 14 and 12V batteries also charge up faster. Suggest they have at minimum 2 batteries so they can be charging one while using one.

    Decide on the range of tools you expect to use so you can stay within one family of products and avoid needing to buy extra batteries and chargers for different tools.

    Go with brushless tools if you can afford them. They are better for battery life and offer better variable speed control. Supposedly they last longer too.

    I’d mention those jigs/devices you can attach to a drill that allow some of the control you need and get with a big drill press. I have a press but got along with one of those for many years when I was starting out and didn’t have the money or space for a press.

    I’d mention the sanding wheels and abrasive stones you can use with hand drills and the mortising jigs you can use with drill presses.

    Hope you find the comments of some value. Please keep up the great lessons.

  4. Quality videos and great content. Thanks for making this info available. I went to get the Vix bits from your link but it takes me to a Bosch set. Is that what you use or is the link wrong? Thanks.

  5. I think you are doing a great job on your video thank you for making them l am looking foreword to seeing all of them a woodworker interesting

  6. James, these lessons are fantastic! Thank you and your girls for giving your time to put this information out there.

  7. My new favorite King of woodworking tutorials on Youtube !! Thank you for an outstand series. I always follow your Amazon links whenever I buy anything!

  8. Nice! Great series so far. I have the metric and imperial versions of that brad point set from woodcraft, that's a great deal on some high quality drill bits!!

  9. Hi James – Your videos are great – I just subscribed – It's the first time I've ever done that 🙂 I'm excited about the Woodworking 101 videos – I learned a lot about my 20-year-old circular saw just by watching your first video. With regards to the drill video, I learned some things as well; I'm hoping that in the future you can address the different gears and such in a contemporary drill. Just purchased my first wireless drill/driver combo set (Ryobi) and as a newish hobbyist it would be great to learn about what changing a gear does / adjusting torque etc. You do a great job explaining things so clearly!
