I love talking to other woodworkers and hearing how their journey in the craft started. I recently met Madison Swords, and I just loved his story of how he got started in woodworking, so I had to share it with you.
Madison is a self-taught woodworker and he learned everything from YouTube. I was not only impressed with that, but the fact that he choose to go the hand tool route, and his for his first furniture project, he choose to tackle a Greene & Greene side table. I was absolutely blown away!
In talking to Madison, it is clear he really gets it. He snaps up the knowledge and puts it to work straight-away in his own shop. He exhibits a wisdom and perspective beyond his years.
I think his journey into woodworking is impressive, entertaining, and inspirational.
Watch the interview with Madison Swords.
I hope you enjoy!
