Damn those finger joints would’ve looked way kickass against the hickory. Great work nonetheless my man!

Chase Owens says:

I felt like I was getting kicked in the Ba//Z when you cut those finger joints off…
And how much fun is working with HICKORY! SOOOOO FUN RIGHT?

Apple box came out incredible! Really like the contrast between the Walnut and the Hickory. Also, great camera work and editing for this video!

The Heavy?! Awesome song, Dave! Nice music yourself I might add. Love the box. I've been wanting to do some boxes lately.

Yul Tidebringer says:

Great project! Love that you showed the misstart. Also, Cameraman Dan is crushing it on the shots in this video.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a good project, but damn your videos and camera work are top notch. I love watching your videos because your style is so unique! Keep it up man!!

Well that's a neat benefit for Cameraman Dan.

Allen Schultz says:

Dude, I like the new cinematics. Very clean.

thejman713 says:

I am really loving these new dynamic/moving shot's you're getting (like the measuring tape shot or the guy cutting and carrying your lumber to a cart at Kencraft). They are delightful

The intro when your were talking about the walnut panel was so well done

Bruce A. Ulrich says:

Ha ha. I was telling my son about “Sand in the place where you live…” and how it was coming. Then, it never came. But you surprised us all!

Fun video, David!
