Stringing and things

Did you ever have one of those weeks? You know, where you try to do something simple and it quickly becomes rather complex. That’s where I’ve been for the last ten days. Fortunately, I think I’m back on the path.

After numerous tries to get this video posted on the blog, it’s finally here! Check it out. If you’ve got questions, please make sure you post them in the comments section. As I keep learning about how to add video to the blog, the quality should only go up. Enjoy!

  1. Very nice video, Chuck! Is this the technique you used on theChester County Bible Box for Leigh Keno?

  2. Hey Chuck,

    Really nicely done video!

    The use of the “D-block” to help with the ripping of the stringing strips was great addition both for safety as well as to keep from blowing up the fine strips of stringing as they move through the blade.

    I hope you will be doing more video in the future.

  4. Thanks for the words of encouragement. I’ve still got a long way to go. So, depending on how you look at it, the good/bad news is I’ll be doing lots more videos.

    I have a handful of techniques ideas I want to shoot plus a few things that might actually interest people.

    Matt, I did use this method to make the stringing for Leigh’s bible box. I didn’t necessarily do it at the time I made the box, however. I tend to set up and make a bunch of stringing at one shot. I usually make 1/32″ and 1/16″ strings in larger quantities and then toss in a handful of 1/8″ strings. It’s so much faster to do a “production” run than it is to set up every time I need a little stringing. I store the stuff in maling tubes I get from the post office. Now, if I just wasn’t so frugal I’d buy enough tubes to separate the different sizes… 🙂

  5. Chuck,

    Very cool! Look forward to seeing more of your videos in the future!

    BTW, love the music at the end of the video! 🙂

  7. Chuck,
    Welcome to video blogging! Great video and thank you for illustrating this technique that you talked about at WIA. I’ll be sure to link to this from my recap podcast of your seminar.

    How do you keep cutting that stringing safely. You stopped before your fingers got too close to that blade but you have 2-3″ more on the blank.

    Nice homage to Norm in your safety lecture too.
