  1. Thanks for the ideas. I've been watching for a while now and I just wanted to pass on one criticism. You mic is so low that when your guitar theme comes on, it is way too loud in comparison. It would be good if you'd balance out the levels of sound between the two when putting it all together. It would be much easier on our ears. Thanks again for your content, I've learned a good bit.

  2. 1:42 I wonder if removing the “S” hooks and stitching some Velcro on each end of the strap would work? Velcro is pretty strong stuff – the straps on my leg immobilizer are just Velcro straps, and they’ve been holding for years. I might try that. Thanks for the idea, Mr. K!!

    2:53 I like the idea of the wedges for the corner clamps. When I first started woodworking one of my kids got me some corner clamps from Harbor Freight and they have worked well for several years, but now the quick release mechanism is releasing too quickly – i. e., they no longer hold at all – so I’m going to make some corner clamps this go around. The problem is that there are so many ways that corner clamps can be made, I’m having a hard time deciding which design will work best for me!

    4:59 And another great idea! If the angle is a problem, could we just use a bench hook on either end with the pipe clamp spanning the two hooks?

    That hunk of spalted whatever-it-is is gorgeous! I hope we get to see the end result of what you make out of that chunk of lumber!

  3. Garry NOT Linda. Don't forget the heat gun. Evenly heat the part and the glue will let go, cool down the wood, scrape off the residue, sand the remainder if necessary then on to the next thing.

  4. I'd noticed you put the two hooks together, and thought it would be much better if you put the one hook into both strape, it would lay flat then. Hope you know what I mean, btw. thanks for your videos, I really like to watch them. and
