"No Comment #2" - Full project build in one video :)
« on: February 28, 2013, 02:07 PM »
My blog went dark for awhile because I was working on a project and recording the full build, start to finish.  I called the video "No Comment #2" since it has no commentary other than some "what's this video" and "well that was fun" intro and conclusions.  Between that is all high-speed sections, cut-aways, close-ups, and me wearing shorts;  [eek] there has to be some entertainment value in that!

Since my shop is pretty green, you'll see a lot of green used.

I won't tell you what I built as the idea of the No Comment builds is that you watch and guess as you go; all that intrigue stuff.  I will say the piece is contemporary so if you really don't like contemporary, there are always threads on Robertson Centrotecs to read...

I'll start posting build videos for it after a week or so; not that anybody else will want a contemporary grain elevator, but some of the techniques were unique especially with the Domino.

I won't be posting the subsequent build episodes here; that's what the blog is for so maybe subscribe over there (right hand column) or pop it into your RSS reader; some build entries will be text and photos so if you're only subscribed to the YouTube channel, you'll miss those bits.

There are two versions of the build video.  There's a version that uses the music I've been using on recent videos.  I like it; it won't offend anybody.  It is the version embedded below.

But wait! There's more!  There's a second Guitar Edition v11.0 with progressive rock guitar instrumentals; I found it very effective at knocking dust off the blinds when played appropriately loud.

Either way, since there is no commentary for the bulk of the video, if you don't like a song, mute it and cue up your Enya playlist.

For the guitar version (my recommendation!) you'll find the video on the posting.

Lastly, if you leave a comment on the video here, on my blog, or on the video itself, (which I'd appreciate!) please don't mention what was built as I'd like to keep the intrigue part for other viewers.

Back from the pee break? okay, hit play...

Haven't seen the new video, but Paul I want to thank you for the great and informative videos! I am new to woodworking and festool and have learned a LOT about my Domino and other tools from your no nonsense, straighforward videos. So thanks!!

I really enjoyed that Mr. Paul.  I've watched it twice and will probably watch it some more.  Quite a bit of green in the video, including a Kapex I see.  Poor Makita.  Your use of jigs was really eye opening for me - a non-jig guy.

Thank you for taking the enormous amount of time and I look forward to the build videos.

Paul, when you go and do all that, it's like we are not even in the same industry anymore.

What is the layout tool you used in the beginning? You had it in a case. Your layout collection is very nice.

Where do you get the hardware to make a custom vise like that? Does it just stick n the holes?

Good work on the video. My dog in the icon pic loved the music, Eric

Paul,

  Great piece !   You got some skills man!    [not worthy]

At first, I thought to myself, and hour long video...  [eek]   

You kept me watching every time you pulled out some cardboard.

The video moves smoothly and next thing you know the finish product is produced.  It didn't feel like a hour long video.

Great music selection.  As always, great editing.  I love the 2 camera angles.  Thanks for taking your time to make this.

Thanks for the compliments and for taking an hour out to watch it :)  Guess I forgot to warn you, but so far, my guinea pigs who saw early versions never thought it too long.

Eric: the angle layout tool is an AngleMaster Pro from Bridge City; total overkill for the two angles I needed set, but its accuracy was a requirement for my other project Angle Madness unless I wanted to sand and caulk a lot  [eek]

The other layout tools were nearly all Bridge City... well the cardboard I guess was technically a layout tool :)

The vise is a Moxon-style vise made from a kit from Benchcrafted.  I have a video on the making of it with the hardware as well as the modification to hang it up on the side of the assembly table.  Here's a link to all those articles.

Funny you mention the dog; Peter will like this, too.  At one point, I'm putting finish on 'the project' with a dog I was dog-sitting next to me.  I kill the camera after getting enough footage then look around for the jar of finish.  When I turn back to 'the project', he was sitting right on it... right in the fresh Arm-R-Seal  [scared]  Guess he thought whatever is located there gets attention so...  Fortunately, he was getting clipped in two days and the Arm-R-Seal was diluted so they snipped off the glued-together fur.

Thanks for the compliment, CopCarCollector... say, how do you collect a cop car?! seems a highly-visible target :)  The irony is that you say the videos are straightforward right after Alan said he was confused for the first half :)  Ah, but it kept you wondering!!

Yeah, you'd think!  Just kidding.  There are instructions for mounting the digital caliper of your choice.  Back of it has integral angles with their caliper numbers.

I wrote an app to do all the crazy angles for Angle Madness and it bothers to convert to the caliper numbers for me (that's the iPad bit you saw in No Comment #2).  Anyway, I used the conversion code to see how bad the error would be if you linearly interpolated between integral angles and the error was very small.  I keep thinking I should finish that app and release it as the web app and 'official' iPhone app (a financial calculator with macros) both are... lacking.  But again, interpolate off the numbers laser etched on the back and you're golden.

Here are two articles I have on the AngleMaster Pro.  One is a review, the other an episode of the Angle Madness build where you see it really used.  Actually, that episode demonstrates how accurate you can cut to a line with the tracksaw.

I'll take my hat off to that - you have raised the bar on entertaining woodworking videos.

I got the gist that it was going to be something organic quite early in the piece with the level of precision being high, but the uniformity being purposely out.

The result is menacingly wasp like from certain angles.

I'll confess to sitting at my desk having a quick flick through the FOG and finding myself watching the entire video in the corner of my screen with no audio, absolute riveted. It was THAT GOOD!

I can imagine that piece coming to life in the middle of the night and turning predator  [scared]

Very nice, plus entertaining.  Got to admit that when I saw those legs and you staining them black, the picture of Count Dracula came to mind along with visions of Señor Wences...

Great, now I'm going to think it's the boogieman who comes to life in the dark  [eek] won't sleep...

Glad it helped with your productivity, Kev!

So I've had the Kapex for a bit, but hid it from the cameras on other episodes simply because I hadn't used it enough to review yet and I had a feeling it would spark requests.  There'll be one very soon though my current problem is disk space :) but soon!

Thanks, everybody!

Stunning!
I started watching in bed, almost asleep. I thought I'd watch at least the first 5 minutes, but ended up watching the whole lot. I couldn't let it go.. An amazing amount of skills went into this one, including camera and editing skills. Thank you for taking the time to put this together. I'll watch it again soon and I'm looking forward to seeing the detail vids.

Congrats to your kapex. I had a Makita as well before I got the Kapex. Have been thinking a lot of building a swiveling table as the one you have for your Makita. I suppose you have to change the dimensions for the Kapex? Anyway, I have decided to put the Kapex on a table extension instead:

Thanks! Sorry about the night's sleep :)

I wanted to put the Kapex on that flip-top table... wouldn't you know it, it's 1/2" too narrow to hold it and pivot.  Need to pull the box out and see how I can fix that; I like the flip-top too much to toss it.  The Makita was a good SCMS although I could never stop it from spewing dust no matter the mod I'd do to the capture shoot.

Sweden has been all over that video; someone posted on a forum named byggahus.se and it has gone nuts.  I tried registering to post a reply to a question in the thread (I assumed I'd be excused for a brief reply in English :)) but the random question was broken as it even said "Random question #3 not found" in English on the Swedish registration form :)  Here's the thread if you are curious as it has started talking about the 'system'.  ...and no I don't read Swedish, but Google does :)

Great video as usual, you are a magician with your editing on this one.  Great project as well.  Not sure the official name, but really liked the wet bandsaw you used.

Well Paul, you got me to watch.  When I started the video and saw the time I thought, "I'm not gonna sit here for an hour and watch some hack from Chandler build something in his garage." ;)
I think I was most impressed by your film editing and diligence with the whole project.  BTW, I've had one of those Ridgid Sanders for years and while I don't use it that often, when I do it works great.  I just picked up a Jet oscillating edge sander and haven't had a chance to set it up yet but when I do I think I'll still hang on to the Ridgid.

I'm going to go sit by the door to see what's coming, Ron!
