Nice to Have Stuff:



This is a great project. As an existing Guild member, I just want to tell everyone that comes here for this as their first Guild project that the video truly is indicative of what you get when you purchase a longer-format instructional series. Besides the great personalities and excellent instructional skill, you also get the highest quality of video production that you won’t find anywhere else with woodworking videos. Come for the frames….stay for everything else!
