If you support me with one dollar per month you can be sure that I am super thankful and that I appreciate it big time!
Next to my gratitude and weekly updates randomly shared a glimpse of personal adventures at the lonesome hill. This tier is for people who can give a little more and would like to have updates from my personal adventures too.
Although I am a woodworker, a former professional frame-maker / restorer, who had the privilege to work on the frame’s of some worldwide famous paintings, my heart goes out to fixing the, often thought to be, unfixable. Not only do I enjoy making new from the old, using reclaimed wood, shop-made tools and other skip-found unloved materials, I love wood in general and when using new timber, I want it to be harvest locally. Just the fact that you're here tells me that you've thought about the time, creativity and effort that goes into making a living with a small workshop on a lonesome hill in central Portugal, while sharing all ups and downs, successful projects and mistakes on a Youtube channel.
Why Do I ask for support?
Running a small workshop, in an area where recycling and upgrading used materials is still far away from being a normality, could be seen as a hopeless endeavour. Still, with every project, new insights and possibilities bubble to the surface and it’s those solutions that I want to share with others. It takes time... lots of time and although I can’t think of anything else I’d rather do, it’s just not sufficient financially rewarding. I am on Patreon to help fund the workshop activities and provide even better, more regular content on the Not Just Sawdust Youtube channel and to sometimes replace tools that are broken beyond my skills of fixing. By pledging to Not Just Sawdust you're helping make my dream of running a recycling and woodworking shop and sharing my adventures come true!
I believe it goes without saying that I would greatly appreciate your financial support. I'll say it anyways though. Thank you. The Patreon model has us place rewards here to entice you to donate, but I hope you're here because you understand what I'm trying to accomplice with the Not Just Sawdust workshop, Youtube channel and website. I’m very pleased with your interest on the adventures of a somewhat strange Dutchman on that lonesome hill in rural Portugal.
