Hey teen, nice site and good video tour. I was a teacher for 30 years. It’s nice to see a young person who can articulate and get across what they want to say without a million, ahhh’s and yaknows. Keep this up and you’ll soon be in the bigger leagues like the wood whisperer and eagle lake.

Thanks Craftsman on the lake. i know what you mean about kids not being able to convey information. luckily i go to Boston Latin School so theres not as much of that. Many of the teachers really stress it to and will not accept papers or even they will not respond to you unless its an emergency if youre not speaking somewhat properly.. lol

keep a look out on craigslist CJ… who knows maybe you could find an even better bandsaw than the one that i have ;)

thanks lew. those pieces that are too big to fit in a drawer but too small to put with my larger boards really were a nuisance. its a nice way to store them.

well done !
good video ,
just a thought ,
get together with your camera man and practice your vid . routine .
there was lots of movement and not co-ordination
with you talking and him watching you do it .
it’s theater , keep it focused .
i am very impresed with the two of you ,
overall a B for 1st time .
and i look forward to more !

i think its so cool that you are into woodworking at such a young age. you have some great tools to start out with also, i wish you all the luck in your woodwoorking career.

also think its great how you use that basement. its tight and cramped, but you dont seem to mind a bit, shows youre a humble guy as well. keep up the great work

Great video! I think you’ve done a super job fitting all those tools in a small space….and it is tidy and organized !!
Looking forward to your series on the bow front desk.

I wanted to be the first to post but got distracted with America’s Got Talent. It’s still on. I wanted to say I’m completely addicted to browsing woodworking videos, i.e. wood whisperer, t-chisel, john nixon mr. eagleamerica, charles o’neil, a guy in australia touting triton tools, the big chipperoo, whoever is holding a shakey camera on a working tablesaw or jointer. being a grouchy old man, i’m not a big fan of prepubescent anything. but of course being n addict, i couldn’t help myself and i watched your first video a few months ago. what i saw was a hint of dedication, passon, technique, guts, and intelligence. i’ve watched you progress through only just a few videos and a few tools to a nice setup built over time. straight forward, no non-sense, good technique, and hey there is always a different way to do it, but you try to perfect and promote your way. who can argue with that. i’m now convinced you do have passon and dedication, and really good technique. you truely enjoy woodworking. you get excited about showing us your stuff, in your on subdued way. keep up the good work. i like you kid, not that it will change your life. you could change a part or two of mine. i’ll keep watching, and learning.

thanks for the shop tour. Those of us who have small shops are always looking for a trick here and there for more space and I appreciated you showing what you’ve done. Thanks for posting.

nice new setup! I actually like the “guerilla” type video – you might be able to harness that to your own advantage and break free from the “standard” production look videos, and come to it from a different angle.
