Well Steve do they HAVE to buy CHEAP tools? Is that a requirement? LOL!

We faithfully watch your videos most every week and have watched you morph into what you are today. The best woodworking instructor around. Thank you for all you do. And Happy New Year.

Steve—You are thanking US?! I really appreciate the work you do … thanks for sharing!

I wonder if anybody has ever told Hugh Laurie how much he looks Steve In Marin?

Thanks for your videos… they keep me going when I ‘m in pain and can not enjoy wood working.

Happy New Year Steve, just want to say thanks for reminding that woodworking can be fun. I tend to take it very seriously, way more than I should, so thanks for all the fun projects that you’ve posted this year. Looking forward to seeing next years projects. Take care.

It’s going to be a very long year waiting to see what marvels are contained with the box. Oh the anticipation of the grand opening is going to be nearly unbearable.

Happy New Year Steve!

Thanks guys, it’s been a fun year. While I can’t consider what I do fine woodworking, I find it very satisfying to hear from guys who have made my stuff. Better yet, guys who have modified and improved on my projects.

I think there is a little disconnect between the perception of woodworking as a craft that is out of reach or too expensive…and the fact that anyone can cut up some boards and have fun with very little investment.

No perfection necessary.

My favorite Video was your comments video. The saw blade thing was as close as
you’ll get to the “you’ll shoot your eye out.” Happy New Year….

The cliff hanger….gota wait 365 days to find out what’s in the box, you should have
paired that with a .99 cent android app. to count down the days to the box opening.
