Doucette & Wolfe on Youtube

D&W
If, like myself, you’re into cabinet making, then you’re probably already aware of the wonderful Youtube videos from the cabinet makers Doucette & Wolfe.
These guys are in a class of their own. I mean, it’s not even funny. The precision with which they build is a real inspiration. You can tell they really enjoy it!
Check out their videos (there are a lot of great ones, but click on the ones that mention ‘build’ in the title, as some videos only show the final piece).

A while ago I put up a post about using sash planes and got a lot of people mailing me about it. I think there’s a real interest in traditional window and door making at the moment, as is clearly evident by LAP’s latest re-print.

On a recent D&W video I watched, there’s a great bit 9:50 in, where the guy pushes together two glazing bars he’s made, with hand cut 4-way half lap mitres on. It’s a real nerdy treat and maybe sums up why we love the idea of crafting doors or windows in or on our houses.
I hope these guys never stop posting these videos. I’d love to drop by for real one day.
