For those who do not know me I am the ‘TeenWoodworker’, I have been posting videos on youtube for the last year and I urge you to check me out. My name is Alex Harris and I am a teenage woodworker, I started woodwork four years ago but It was only within the last year that I have taken it seriously.

Although I don’t have a project in this post I hope to write a new one for each video that I do on youtube and maybe some updates about myself.

I may produce a website for you guys to check out but that is yet to be established.

Thanks for the warm welcome to lumberjocks and I’m sure that the support which I have recieved on youtube will be even greater here.

If any of you want to ask me somthing, please send me a message.

Hello Alex,

It’s good to see young people getting into woodworking….I always said if more teenagers did it, they would stay out of trouble….It would keep them home, and off the streets…. Keep up the woodworking, and chase your dreams…..sometimes that’s all we have….. and welcome to Ljs….if you want to learn this stuff, take notes, pay attention, and listen to the ones that have been doing this for years….they know the craft….

Great to see you here, even though there’s potential for confusion with Denis Rezendes who’s a member here with the name teenagewoodworker. Dennis has posted several great videos.

I hope you enjoy being a member of this community and look forward to seeing more from you here.

Welcome Alex. I discovered your Youtube channel a while back and let me just say that I am very impressed with what you are able to accomplish in such a small space. I recently watched your shop tour video and I was amazed at how much you have and how you creatively store it. I have subscribed to your channel and look forward to seeing more of what comes out of your small shop. BTW, I thought your storage system, by using shoe bags, is an excellent idea. I plan to use it. Again, welcome to LJ.
