What makes me different? I show the full process, from tree to completed piece.
Milling Your Own Lumber
Many people believe they are limited by the lumber they can get at a big box store. Even I thought that for a long time. It wasn't until recently that I realize all the opportunities there are for people to make their own lumber. You don't even have to own land or expensive equipment. Trees are everywhere. From finding a posting on Craigslist from someone who had a tree removed, to paying attention when a storm rolls through. There are certainly ways to get your hands on raw materials. I have videos that show how to take a log and turn it into boards right in your backyard.
Building Fine Furniture
Many woodworkers are intimidated by what is seen as advanced level woodworking. They shouldn't be. I make videos about these "advanced" techniques to make it more approachable and fun. After all, woodworking is something most people do for fun so why shouldn't it be fun? Have aspirations of challenging yourself to grow as a woodworker? I can help with that. From discussions about wood movement and grain selection to cutting fine dovetails and solid wood construction, I make videos addressing all those topics.
My goal is to motivate people to try new things-whether a new technique or project.
I occasionally post content for early viewing here on Patreon. By becoming a patron, you'll gain early access to my work.
Thank you for your support and, as always, happy woodworking!
