Our First Video!


When I started Build Basic, I vowed to make each project’s instructions as visual as possible. As a visual learner myself, I knew the extra time it took to declutter a photo, or put together an extra drawing, could potentially make all the difference between a fellow DIY’er being gloriously triumphant versus horribly frustrated. And so, in the name of exploring all visual avenues, I figure it’s time to dip my toe in the video pool…in the shallow end, of course. In this first video, I’m sharing my tip for tapering a furniture leg. And in true Build Basic fashion, this tutorial does not require a table saw or fancy jig…just a 1×2, jigsaw, and some clamps. Click the video below to play, and then head over to the full tutorial to check out the step-by-step instructions with images (of the non-moving variety).

    I really appreciate you putting the video up, too. It just helps clarify things in my mind and gives me peace of mind that I am doing things correctly. As a newcomer to the “building” scene, I am not always familiar with some of the terms, and the video really helps!
