In this video I plan a joint incorrectly. But, most things being fixable in wood working, the project ultimately moves on. Hey, I even end up with an interesting joint.

I made this as a gift for some friends. The wood is Red Oak, and the finish is garnet Shellac.
I'm trying a different video format. Please let me know what you think.

I've been using this homemade product for several months, but how well does it work?
