About Essential Craftsman

I get real pleasure from teaching the things I have learned during the past 44 years of logging and lumbering ... building and blacksmithing. However, as with most pleasurable pastimes, there is a cost to sharing content via YouTube.

Creating these videos competes directly with my ability to run my contracting business, and with Nate's ability to do the real estate work that feeds his family. I think you would be surprised, and disturbed, if you knew how many man-hours we spend producing this content.

This is a labor of love, but it IS labor, and the financial costs can't be ignored. There will come a day (we hope) when our channel will be fully self-sufficient. However, that day is not yet here – and we have a lot of work to do before it is. 

Thank you for your support ... and thanks for watching!
