Hi Everyone,

First time visitor and poster to this forum (literally just learned about it). Been woodworking/building for the better part of two years now. Started my blog on my builds about a year ago, and my YouTube channel on my builds about 2 months ago and love every second of it.

Woodworking for me is a culmination of my passions for building and creating as well as filming, editing, and writing and I love sharing my work with the world, even if a small audience sees it and even if only one person finds inspiration or education through what I do. I’m not the best, but I am always improving, and thats the long term goal.

Here is a link to my latest project that I posted today that I am very proud of:

A link to my blog can be found here if you’d like to check out more details on the project and other builds I’ve done.

Thank you very much for checking out my project and I hope you enjoy!

Best,

-- Zach aka The Cutting Bored, https://goo.gl/O4acGO

Thanks Pottz! That means a lot to me – everything you said does seem to encompass my history with building. No shop, decent access to starter tools, a lot of homework and practice, and a just a general passion and enthusiasm for creation instead of buying!

Learning and long term growth in skill is my goal – especially in finer woodworking (as well as growing a nice audience to share my passion with) – so maybe one day ill be able to afford bigger tools, but for now, I’m excited to continue building with what I have and share it with this community. Thanks a lot for checking out my project! Cheers
