    Am considering trying to make the molding planes needed to work on linenfold panels and so reviewed your older film re how you work on them … only to find that you apparently didn’t set up your older work to allow us to download copies. Since I will be needing to work off of a laptop/dvd when carving down at my woodshop, I would like to be able to download to disk and take it to the shop. Any chance of getting your tech folks to review the older files and add download capability? Thanks for the consideration … ralph

      Hello Ralph,
      All lessons should allow downloading capability and I double checked this lesson to make sure it is working correctly. The only difference is that the older lessons are standard definition vs HD. I will contact you directly to make sure everything is working on your side.

      Thanks and happy carving!
