I have been fortunate in my woodworking experience to gain as much knowledge as I have, but it has been thru extensive studying and a million mistakes. Now that I have gained a bit of knowledge I try to give it back where I can and that is why I started making my youtube videos which I admit are not the best. But I have fun making them and if it inspires someone to try something new, all the better.
I have recently been learning as I go on saw making and having a blast doing it. So when I encountered a young woodworker passionate about learning and growing as a woodworker I thought what a perfect opportunity to give back. I have always been fond of the barter system, local woodworkers around here are always willing to trade products for wood and vice versa. So I struck a bargain with this young man and he ends up with a dovetail saw that will hopefully help him in his future en devours.
His name is Tyler Crum and he is a 14 year old with plenty under his belt already. He has quite a portfolio to show and his own youtube channel.
His most recent project has been a bed commission that in my opinion is very impressive for a young aspiring woodworker.
Here is his youtube channel

I hope this young man goes far. Everyone of us that has some knowledge or an extra tool laying around for a young woodworker should be supporting these young woodworkers and helping them on their way. Thanks for listening to my soapbox lecture.
Be safe and have fun woodworking, give back where you can. Thanks.
