Awesome! There a few channels, that upload all types of these old Military Training Films, I spend hours and hours watching them.  I am a "History Buff" and love learning, there are some real treasures out there, and without the drama crap shows on the cable channel History, which is actually a joke LOL.

They don't really build stuff like that in the military anymore. It's all prefabbed or shipping containers now.

ya timez have changed in that aspect i didnt really watch it because it was military i watched it because i cam relate to it and its cool so see them doing what i do but in the 50s hand cutting and hand nailing and all that its cool to watch

Crazy, but a lot of the main concepts are still the same. But now we use power tool. Which reminds me, how is that Makita nailer working for you. I checked one out next to the Senco, and it was lighter with better ergonomic handle. Just has an appeal to it

Very interesting, I really enjoyed watching that. Amazing how much of what I do fabricating steel follows a lot of the same principles when it comes to laying everything out. My X's mark what side of the line to cut rather then where to place the piece though.

I framed house for about 10 years before I went on my own and we would connect our outer corner walls the same way, with an L post.

Ya man its such a smart way of doing it we do it with all walls partitions and outter walls its the most effextive way to tie to walls together and sometimes it gives a back up for the drywall
