I have watched the zen of Paul on YouTube. He is very good.

I am always nervous when someone starts talking “traditional woodworking skills”. It usually translates to “let’s do it the way the Amish did it 300 years ago.” Uhm, no thanks. I like my power tools.

However, Paul isn’t really like that at all. He’s more about understanding why and how you get there … then get there however you like.

I support those guys that like to keep the knowledge alive by doing their wood-working “old school”. We need those types.

But there’s a reason I don’t own an abacus, and frankly if we end up in a road warrior world where I can’t use my power tools, wood working will be the least of my concerns.
