I recently realized that there is not enough info for people who are interested in getting started in woodworking as a hobby. I tend to think that a lot of curious people are overwhelmed by woodworking shows and web sites. Norm Abram is one of my heros, but I can’t help but wonder if new woodworkers get discouraged thinking that woodworking can only take place at such a high end. As woodworkers, I think we should encourage new folks to simply get a few tools and saw some wood! If I could mix my metaphors, it ain’t rocket surgery!
There is a wide contunuum of skills in this craft that can allow people to relax and build wood projects really easily: and most of all, have fun.
This video is for newbies!
