    Don't Do This!

    Pardon if you've already seen this guy's "work", but I'm appalled at the blatant ignorance this "expert" demonstrates with hand and power planes. I'm posting this as a public service, in hopes that it saves at least one newbie from actually trying to use the tools the way this guy does. He's a safety -- and technique -- train wreck.

    And for more giggles (or shudders, depending on your point of view) check out his use of a tablesaw.

    Expert, my eye.

    Hmmm... he actually looks kinda ripped in the planer videos. Yikes!

    Thanks,

    He certainly sounds and acts like he has had a few beers.

    As a warmup to the tequila, maybe?

    Don't Do This!

    Vaughn,

    I think I saw this on another forum. The comment there was "Is this guy on drugs?"

    Crazy what some people do.

    Who said you can never have too many clamps? This guy doesn't need any!

    I agree Rennie. I've only been wood working for a few years. But even the very first time I picked up a hand planer and looked at the wood I was going to work on, the first thing I thought was, I need to somehow clamp this wood down.

    And this guy calls himself an expert

    He is planing the wood towards his other hand which is trying desperately to hold the wood steady.

    Saw that one. The guy's high (figuratively and maybe literally).
