"If you've never had the chance to see a live
carpentry demonstration by Fine Homebuilding contributing
editor, Gary M. Katz, you're missing out. Katz's 'anyone
can do this' attitude draws big crowds at trade shows
from coast to coast. Katz's popular demonstration on mastering
the miter saw is an appropriate choice for his debut DVD."

"I have reviewed part 1 and
found it to be the best instructional carpentry video
ever. Please notify me if any other DVD 's of yours are
coming out. Also, if you could recommend any more instructional
print or video. I plan to attend a carpentry trade school
in the near future, but wish to acquire all the knowledge

you for producing such a great DVD Series. I have been
very impressed with the material, as well as the ability
for the typical lay person to be taught in a very non
threatening fashion (we have started sending it home with
our new employees as "home-work", and it is
definitely shortening the learning curve)."

"Thanks for the prompt delivery and especially
for the excellent miter saw DVD's. They have already more
paid for themselves with the work I did over the weekend!
You mention in the DVD that there are other carpentry
DVD's that either are available or will be in the near
future. I would appreciate some information on how to
order these, or maybe be on an E-mail alert list when
they do become available? Thanks again for a needed and appreciated product."

"I bought your videos because I have
my first job of installing crown coming up. Your tips
are fantastic! I didn't know how much I didn't know until
I watched the videos. Now when people see me doing it,
I'll actually look like I know that I'm doing and I've
been doing it for some time instead of the newby that

"I am a satisfied customer and wanted to tell
you that it is a real pleasure to watch your instructional
dvds on trim carpentry. I am a carpenter but know very
little about trim carpentry, at least not what you know
anyway. Thank you for the educational experience that
would have taken me years to acquire. "

"Thank you for the DVDs. I bought both of
them. I have learned how to work more efficiently with
them. I continue to challenge myself to get the job done
quicker without loosing the quality or my reputation.
I plan to utilize the DVD for training of staff as the

"I attended your seminar in March
at the Rhode Island Convention Center. During the seminar
I thought you had a lot of techniques and procedures that
I could use in my business. After having a few months
to try them I have to let you know how well they are working
for me. My absolute favorite has to be pre-assembly of
crown moulding. I just completed a 5 room project where
none of the rooms were just a square box. I started with
only a couple pieces at a time and by the end of the job
the more pieces I could do the better. The joints are
nice and tight, my client especially liked the pre-assembled
splice I used on a 22' run. What a great time saver at
no sacrifice to quality. I also used a triglyph in the
design for the trim on a palladian window. They look great.
Learning some of the terms from Historic Architecture
by Cyril Harris has definitely impressed clients and my
crew as well. I could go on but I think you get the idea.
Your seminar and your passion for finish carpentry are
an inspiration to me. I would like to thank you for devoting
you time and effort to teaching and let you know how much
it is appreciated."
