What is the Age Range you refer to as “Young”? LOL

The older one gets, the more younger everyone else looks! LOL

Jim, glad ya asked. I’m proud to say that I have a grandson who is very interested. I have started his “tool box”, and he always attempts a new skill when he visits. His next session will involve a block plane and a handsaw.
He’s nuts about the drill press. Thinks that it is the best tool in the shop. It is a fun shop time for me.

At some point I became old. It was the same time I stopped getting carded to buy beer. (I really wish I could remember the last time that happened…to record it as a rite of passage.)

MUST include Alex Harris. This kid’s amazing and has a very bright future.

I have to agree with Steve, Alex Harris is an incredible talent. I have learned a lot just watching a handful of his youtube videos! He has skill, and does a great job teaching as well, he gets my vote for sure!

I have had the privledge of meeting Denis ( aka teenage woodworker), and in my personal opinion, this young man is the most naturally talented woodworker I have ever seen, certainly not to take away from the others, and while I certainly don’t consider myself a master, I have been around a while, that said if I can help any of them, it would be an honor, so please have them PM me, never to busy to help !

What, are we nominating people for a calender here, Moment? Maybe I should take my shirt off… :)

A1Jim- I’m a fan of CartersWhittling. He has been doing videos lately on his workbench build and the craftsmanship and attention to detail is exceptional. He even shows how to make his own wood screw tap and die for the vise.

Moment… I’m in my 30’s – that’s me in the little avatar photo to the left!

Maybe some would say I am a tiny bit more “puff’ than “buff”, but I don’t have any problem getting any dates…

Mostly because I’ve been married for 15 years…

I am far from amazing, but only just turned 23 and feel that I am well on my way to building precise, quality furniture. Just finished my first real project, with only a compound mitre saw and hand tools. Hopefully I am getting a router table for Christmas which will open some doors for me. Let me know what you think of my project in my profile.

I’m seventeen years old and am becoming a first year Joinery apprentice in two weeks. I’ve been in my entry level class for six months.
I also have my own shop set up in the garage with a nice collection of tools.
I haven’t made anything amazing yet but my plan was to make amazing furniture and I stick to my plans.

Some very impressive wood working here.Ill never forget when i was taking shop class my father was a home builder and also made cabinets. He went to open house at my shop class and the instructor said to dad Whatever you do dont get a hammer and saw for your son.
I just love that I wish he was still alive maybe I could convince him in letting me buy some tools and then maybe not. Just saying dont let someone tell you cant do what you want to do.
Thanks Jim for letting me tell it the way it is

I know this post has some age on it but I got a double barrel shot last week that’s applicable. First, I had a soldier ask me how old I am. I told Him…..He says “oh, you and my dad are the same age.” In the same day some one told my wife she had a chair for “dad” to sit in while she looked at some dresses.

Good post Jim, it is great to be reminded of the latest generation entering woodworking and seeing it won’t end. Actually with some of the people posted, it may be a whole new era of woodworking in the next decade if not sooner. In my area it seems every youngster (under 25) has no interest in working with wood.

Steve.
