Cutting Board Conclusion (Video No.3)

It’s been about a week since I filmed but, the final episode in my three-part cutting board series is finally online and ready for viewing:

I’ve taken on board some advice from Stu recently, with regards to the transitions between scenes, if nothing more at the moment. As I’ve said before; it’s all a big experiment for me. I am very aware that you can barely hear my voice towards the end of the video and, again referring to Stu’s comments, I’ll probably look at tinkering with voice-overs in future (at least, until I can a decent video camera with an input jack for a microphone – though, I’m sure the purchase of a 16-32 drum sander would push that one even further back down the list!!).

I hope you enjoy this final instalment and, if you’ve learned something new along the way then, I’m happy as well! 🙂 I am hoping to capture a couple of other short projects in video form throughout the summer [summer?!?] so, I hope you’ll also subscribe and keep checking back here for future updates.

Sorry that the gap between each post appears to be growing at the moment. I’m working a lot at the moment just to keep my head above the water and, where I haven’t got as much time as I’d like to be able to spend in my own workshop, I’ve discovered that the art of basic video editing can easily consume a lot of spare ‘workshop-time’!

Thanks for reading and for watching.

Triton DCA300 Dust Bucket

Even when I’m trying to get on with my work, it seems the courier guys are hell-bent on delivering something that will disrupt my working day… I’ve just taken delivery of a Triton DCA300 Dust Collection Bucket; something I’ve been talking about buying for months:

I managed to get it for less than £24 delivered – it was listed as a Used item at Amazon.co.uk but, in “As New” condition, which simply meant that it didn’t arrive in the original packaging. I have double-checked though and everything is complete and in tact. Having signed up for a thirty-day trial of their new Prime service as well, the item arrived next-day at no extra cost. 😎
