Let Me Show You How To Get (Your Flashing) Bent

When I'm not woodworking (or talking about woodworking or going to a woodworking conference) I'm a project manager for Roof Services, a large roofing and waterproofing firm on Long Island. In that role I've been lucky enough to connect with the nice folks at Fine Homebuilding to record a few of our recent residential projects. I had a full length article on residential flat roofs in the June/July 2012 issue (#228).

A few weeks ago I shot a short video with Fine Homebuilding, explaining how to bend copper chimney flashing from sheet copper. The video was released yesterday on the Fine Homebuilding web site. I've had a chance to watch it, and thanks mostly to their great editing ability, I think it's pretty good. I'm certainly proud of it.

If you like mixed media in your woodworking projects, there are bits in here you can pick up that will apply to any sheet metal you may fabricate with. If you're only into woodworking, then I'm sorry you'll have to wait for my next post. I was in the middle of writing a review of Maurice Pommier's Grandpa's Workshop, but the release of this video was too exciting to pass up. The review will come next week, along with more woodworking.
