Trailer for Simon James’ new DVD on Cabinet Making: How to make the traditional workshop jigs and devices used in furniture making.

Traditional workshops had a vast array of clever jigs and devices, all designed, and usually shop made, to make the work of a craftsman faster and more accurate.

Simon teaches how to make many of the most useful of these pieces which are devices he uses most days. The designs are based on the traditional but have refined through testing and use over time.

Though these are “just” workshop items, the clear, step by step teaching introduces many techniques that are applicable to cabinet making, such as compound joinery and inlay,

The DVD compliments Simon’s book: Working Wood 3: The Cabinet Maker’s Workshop.
