      Hi Keith,

      In this instance, Paul is using Meranti, however he wouldn’t usually recommend this as it’s not readily available. The wood types he recommends for this project are:

    I have lots of meranti from a malaysian deck board pallet. Is it food safe?

      Hi Keith,

      To find out the safety of certain woods, Paul usually uses the Wood Database.

    Wish I would have had this learning series available to me 45 years ago when I began as a self-taught woodworker. I wouldn’t had began with bad habits. I am now advanced and subscribe to Paul’s Masterclass woodworking. I’ve finally retrained myself and I now work with a lot of hand tools using Paul’s techniques for sharpening, cutting, measuring, marking, reading the grain, holding techniques, etc. etc. This will be a great series for beginners learning fundamentals who can then step out into his Master Classes. Great job Izzy, Paul and the others!
