"I can't imagine many people could sit through them. i sure couldn't, but I don't know how else to document the procedure in a way that everything is covered - putting anything on forums is extremely temporary and it would've been a killer to provide all of the detail in type and pictures."

I didn't mean to be snide about that. I just find, after 40 years, hundreds of books, etc... I can't take it any more. :) Which is a good thing, just do it.

I used to get annoyed in the early days of video when people would review some massive win in the expansion of information (which may be where yours are, given that I don't think Larry followed through with his promised bench plane videos?) and just pick away at the details on production. If someone would tell me how to do something I was desperate to know about, I would sit through anything. That is the main thing you learn from taking a serious education, patience. But I gave up as every second youtube video became more professional than a Taunton Press video, and when those were coming out they were dang good!
