Hello my name is Michael, I am fairly new to woodworking. I have been interested in it for many years but never had the proper means to learn. Everything I know has been self taught, having learned techniques and tips from watching YouTube videos and learning from online woodworkers such as Marc the wood whisperer and Steve Ramsey's from woodworking for mere mortals.

My shop is based out of a 1 car garage so space is definitely an issue. Every time i want to work i have to set up and break down my equipment this is a huge pain and a big waste of time. I much rather spend that time working on projects. I only h...
Let me start off by saying I am generally very cautious and careful when it comes to operating my tools. I like to make sure my hands are always in a safe area and my ears and eyes are protected. Today while I was working in my shop I was needed t...
I really like having a clean and organized shop space, unfortunately that is very to maintain in a small space. As clean as i keep my shop it always manages to get dusty, messy, unorganized and i end up misplacing everything. I usually like to spe...
