WOODWORKING: How to Prepare Boards for Great Results

Cover Photo for Build Your Own Cabinets E-Learning Course


UPDATED 29Nov2019 + video: If you aspire to create great woodworking in a home workshop, you need to start with wood that’s flat, square and precise. The thing is, wood almost never comes this way. Even expensive lumber is often cupped, warped or twisted in some way and to some extent. That’s just the way it is, and it’s why precision needs to be imposed on wood before and during the construction of high quality furniture, cabinets, shelves and other projects. And the job of imposing this kind of precision begins with a stationary tool called a jointer.

Click the video window below to watch and learn how to use a jointer to create boards that are easy to work with. Most home woodworkers don’t think much about a jointer, but that’s a mistake. The video below is part of my large and detailed online cabinetmaking course. Hundreds of people have taken this course since I created it in 2018 and so far everyone loves it.
