Shows how to make an oval picture frame. Starting at the 30 second mark he shows how to use three nails, some string and some math to figure out how to draw out the shape to size. I also like the emphasis on making a pattern for a woodworking project to repeatable results.
This whole video is a wonderful primer for turning. The maker does a great job breaking down the process. What he lacks in polish he makes up for in simple, easy to follow directions.
Tamar at 3x3custom is my absolute favorite maker. In this video she breaks down a creative joint, and takes viewers along for the ride. I love her honest approach, using her failures as learnings. She truly embodies the marker spirit.
