We have all seen wood objects with rounded shapes, that’s nothing new. But when the grain of the wood shows that this piece was not just sawed into shaped but bent into shape, it starts turning heads. Bending wood? Surely something as hard as wood can’t possibly be bent can it? Ooh yes it can, and it’s not that hard to do either! Steve Ramsey knows exactly how it’s done, and he made this video to demonstrate it. In this case he makes a holder for a razor, but you could make almost anything out of your bent wood like coat hangers, bracelets, decorations and even large things like furniture. So watch this and let your imagination run wild!

So watch this video and lock up the true potential of your table saw!
The art of dovetail joint making is quite tricky, as we can see in this video when Adam Savage from Mythbusters tries to learn this particular craft while teaching it to Will from Tested.com. Even though he doesn’t end up with a perfect joint, he talks about all the theories and techniques he has found in his research. Since he is planning to eventually build a sea chest with “Like ten dovetails on each side, it’s like….mind-blowing”, Crafters University wish him the best of luck in perfecting his dovetail joint crafting skills.
