    You're like the Bob Villa of box building now. Well done, but why the motorcycle gloves?

    Nice video. I'm glad I don't have to do any of that though. Being in the lumber industry you tend to find some mega hookups. I've got a panel guy that can do everything within 0.001" accuracy. All cuts, kerf cuts included. CNC FTW.

    I would not try it. I don't put screws in the end grain of MDF in general. Just use clamps.

    I agree in this case, when working with stuff that spins/rotates.. gloves aren't your best bet safety wise. In any other situation I would wear them.
    Yeah and I betcha the producers made him wear the gloves to promote "safety"
