I know that every one of my readers except for Paul-Marcel, for whom I made the first one, is scratching their head wondering what the heck a Br’all is, what it does, and why they haven’t heard of it.
A Br’all is a shop accessory that I think every shop should have. I designed it to do one thing and one thing only. It does not require a great investment in either time, tools or materials to make, so it is a great Get Woodworking Week project.
The first video is the one you should definitely watch. I show you how to make a Br’all using different hand tools, techniques and the purpose of the Br’all. (Duration: 13 minutes, 14 seconds; the high-speed segments are 2x speed.)
The second video shows the letter carving I added. (Duration: 7 minutes, 12 seconds; the high-speed segments are 4x speed.)
Here are some pictures of my bench-clearing Br’all.
