Quick Leg-Shaping Video

We’ve been busy with various projects at Woodworking Masterclasses, and I’ve been working on a few other projects that I hope to blog on soon. I’ve nearly finished making an a frame sign with through mortises for my former boss as Blue Sky Cafe. In the mean time, I thought I would post a short video of me shaping a leg for a stool. I was pondering on the best way to show the shaping process, whether it could be shown best through words, drawings, photos or videos, so thought I would try a video with my new camera. What do you think?

    Looks good Phil. Great video!

  2. Hi Phil,

    I think the time-lapse is a great way of showing the shaping process – I’d find a normal speed video a bit dull as there’s a lot of repetition. With the time-lapse, you can see the various tools and techniques used without having to sit through the entire process in real-time. Great idea!


  3. I like the speeded up action of the video. In longer real time videos with verbal explanations I usually forget the earlier parts before the video is finished. This was short enough that the whole thing was kept in context. Great! Thanks.

  4. The time-laps is great for people like me who have a terribly short attention span. Keep up the good work!
