I’m pretty sure I first found Alex while looking for shop made clamp videos. In those days he was still a youngster working in a very small side shed along his parents’ house. Despite his then humble surroundings he managed to put out project videos. He also built a Matthias Wandel style band saw at this time. Alex later moved his shop to a one stall garage. I’m unsure if it’s his parents’ garage (likely) or someone else’s. He is currently attending university so his video output has slowed down, but the videos he posts are still good to watch. I consider Alex to be a wood turner, but he does a fair amount of general woodworking as well.

I found Alex when he was building a base for his table saw, (A small direct drive). Then, as his small electric screw driver ran out of power, he just kept going by using it manually … Nothing will stop this kid, not even dead batteries.
He is fun and interesting to watch, and some times he “makes do” in his humble but growing shop.
