- educational video????? Review by Shawn
Im sorry I don't like to give negative feedback to other artists, But this is not something that you should be charged money for. Its a nervous looking artist saying he wanted something for when he travels so he made this block of wood. He does not explain how it was made, it's size, the types of wood that work best, how he cut the slots or anything else. He shows you how to use a c-clamp to mount it and that he can stick a mandrel and a small stake in it and that he can hit it a few times with a hammer. and says to drill whatever holes in it you might want, The video added nothing to the picture of the JBOTF picture on the front as to how to make what look to be a interesting tool.
this was a good video if it was on YouTube but to pay even $3 to see his block of wood sorry Ive download at least a dozen much more functional and beautifully made units like this from Pinterest and have mine almost completed this commercially sold vide added nothing to that process.

- Great Info! Review by Jeff M
This is exactly what I was looking for! Something to allow me to work at different locations and do everything or nearly everything I need to do to create the jewelry I want to make! I'll add a portable workstation of which this will become a major part of! Thanks Michael, for the great ideas!

- Disappointing Review by Joanne
When I ordered this I expected more detailed instructions on how to make it. I could have made it by just looking at the picture. I felt this product was a definite scam.

- great ideas! Review by Mary
Honesty first - I haven't watched this video. But I've taken several classes with Michael, and he's an excellent instructor. I'd expect his video to be clear and thorough.
I was in one of Michael's first classes after he started traveling with this "Jewelry Bench on the Fly." It was incredibly useful for him; he could easily do everything he needed to do with lots of different tools. I was fascinated with it. I measured it from all sides, took lots of notes, made drawings, and talked my hubby into constructing a similar unit for me as soon as I returned home.
My unit has traveled with me to several classes. It has a permanent space on my tiny workbench because I have no other way of attaching a bench pin or supporting a ring mandrel.
Michael's ideas are fabulous, and my unit has made my jewelry workbench setup much more useful.
