Woodoodworking Webinars


Recommended Posts

Anyone attended any good woodworking webinars?

I have been going to the Fine Woodworking ones (free) last nights on spoke shaves was really informative. I also attended one Philip Morley did via the Austin School of Woodworking ($25) on how to shape the edge of wood like he does in his work, very good. Finally I have been to two from Imagine Grove (Scott) with two more scheduled ($5 ea) all on veneering. This one has had some technical glitches but the content has been really good.

Post up any others you guys are seeing.

Our club hosted Scott Grove for a remote demo at last months meeting.  It was a good show.  There has been the AAW virtual symposium and there is the upcoming Woodturners Worldwide virtual symposium.  As to other flatwork fare, I got nothing.

I wish I would have seen that one.  I have always been interested in his sanding techniques for that stuff because he always maintains a crisp looking edge even after sanding.  Did he cover that?

I am taking Matt Kinney's class on box building also from Austin School.  It starts on the 23 of August.  I know most of his techniques as far as construction through looking at a bunch of his photos but I want to see his whole process top to bottom.

It was well worth the $25. He did he uses a combination of a shinto rasp, hand plane, Preppin weapons sanding blocks and sandpaper backed with thin cardboard.

I wanted to take that one as well but my wife said not on the wedding weekend :(

Wow, that's pretty short sighted of her.  Did you remind her that you cleaned the pool for her earlier in the summer. :P

So webinars are live and not something you can purchase anytime? 

That is typically the case when the term "webinar" is used. On-demand classes will usually be refered to as online classes or courses.

Although, some folks do record the webinar event, and post it as an on-demand class afterward.

For the past few months, I've been watching videos from Tom McLaughlin at Epic Woodworking.  He does a live show every Thursday evening at 8:00 pm Eastern - "Shop Night Live."  These are generally 60-90 minutes, focused on a stand-alone topic - tools, techniques, etc. - but he's also done some as a "series."  For example, he has a series on designing furniture.  He takes questions during the live session, but also posts the videos on his web site, where they can be viewed for free:  https://www.epicwoodworking.com/videos/

With the pandemic shutting down his face-to-face classes, he has also done several live "build series," where he walks through a complete project.  He's done a Craftsman coffee table, a Shaker end table and a shop stool.  For the build series, he does two or three live sessions per week - Tuesday evening, Thursday evening and/or Saturday morning.  The live build series are available to view on-demand for free, and he has others for purchase:  https://www.epicwoodworking.com/learn/

There are drawings available, for purchase, for each of the projects.

There's a new live build series that I believe is starting Tuesday, August 25 - it's a bed frame.

Thanks for the links. I don’t have any plans on doing marquetry any time soon but for $5 it’s definitely worth watching.
