  • Great project! What do you use to finish the plywood here? Is that a big flask of varnish or oil?

  • Awesome Video! I have a question regarding the round over bit you used for trimming. It looks like you only rounded over the first (?) layer of plywood? Also looks like you used a larger bearing? I really like trim results and was wondering if anything special was done there. Thanks!

  • Hi Laura. Thank you for this Idea. I made just a few changes, so i could build a diningtable. If you only need one once a year, it's awesome to be able to store it :) Thaaaanks :)

  • Laura, cheers from Brazil! First of all, I really love your videos and wish I could make 1/10 of what you do! During this period we are dealing with COVID and as I’m staying much more at home, I am introducing myself to the “DYI” world - even though I’m terrible at it., but I’m really enjoying playing around. I’d like to ask you one thing: when you decide to start a project, how do you go from the idea to the final product? I mean, do you use any trick to build, like a cardboard “prototype “ or something like this? Thus is the hardest part for me and sometimes I simply stuck... Thank you a lot for sharing all the amazing things you do!!!

    • Hey! I usually just get started and figure it outs I go. As a beginner it might be easier to start with a cardboard prototype. Be patient and stay curious-you got this!

  • Hi Laura, this is a beautiful table and great job on the videography as well! Thank you for sharing! My brother wants a foldable black coffee table and I think this might be perfect! Are the plans available? If not, how much would it cost for you to make one 48inch by 25inch foldable coffee table for me? How long would it take? Thank you again.

  • Loved the project, but also loved your use of those styrofoam blocks for supporting the plywood while jigsawing it! And to think I’ve thrown them away! Ha! Also liked your trick of wrapping the spray can with sandpaper since it’s the same radius as the cut! Thanks for teaching an old dog new tricks! (I’m 60) LOL!

  • I love this project, and I'm tempted to make something like this, myself! I am curious though - is there any specific reason recent videos have been sans-narration, or is it just a stylistic choice? Either way, I love it!

  • First time I've seen your work and not only am I mesmerised by you, your talent, but also just in seeing how you can create awesome things without (appearing to) have spent pile of money on machinery. I think the most expensive thing I saw was your Let the Glue Dry block.... LOL............. I loved every second of this.... NEW SUBSCRIBER INDEED

  • My biggest frustration with videos of makers like this is they always use materials that cannot be obtained by the average joe. If you could include sourcing information, it would be helpful.

  • Great job! You should make at least one Cajon hand drum. Seriously, with your skills and good tools you can make a beautiful drum. I make them in my garage with cheap Harbor freight tools. I don’t have a table saw which is a challenge. Everything I know about making a cajon I learned from NLworld videos. Consider this a request.

  • Wonderful work as always. With the friction of the wood rotating on wood slowly wear out and widen over time. Maybe the addition of some leather bearings inside the holes could prevent that?
