Fun to watch but not quite as instructional as I had hoped. Review by Wood Talk Review Show
Rating

It was a pleasure watching an experienced craftsman dance with his bandsaw. Jeff cuts wood with the deft smoothness that only years of practice can provide. His puzzle boxes range from mildly complicated to mind-boggling. And while the DVD does show how Jeff makes his boxes (we see each and every cut), I don’t feel the DVD does enough to show US how to make a puzzle box. This is the video you watch if you ever wondered how this process is done. If you want to actually make a specific box, you will need to seek out additional resources. In the video, Jeff makes three boxes with increasing complexity. But I think the viewer would be better served if he showed us each step necessary to make the simplest box. Since I don’t plan on making a puzzle box any time soon, I was able to enjoy this peek into a talented craftsmen’s process. But if I were looking to start making these boxes, I might find myself inspired, intimidated, and frustrated all at the same time.
