I’m so pleased to see young folks that are into woodworking and even getting their own shops and selling their work. even if their just making bird houses or something simple the’re still going for it. I think it’s great to recognize and encourage the young folks . How about listing some of the young folks you’ve seen on LJs or elswhere and maybe a project they have made. I’ll start.
I first noticed Dennis when Charles Neil stopped by his house to give him encouragement and Charles had him featured in his blog. I have been amazed at the quality pieces of furniture this young man makes and the design and craftsmanship he has in each piece that he makes. He has been a member of LJs longer than I have been. He goes by teenagewoodworker http://lumberjocks.com/teenagewoodworker and the project I like best of his is his Serpentine Bow Front Desk http://lumberjocks.com/projects/24707
Another great guy is Michael Frey who has had his own woodworking business for some time(FREY WOODWORKING INC.) in Portland Oregon and started when he was 14 years old http://lumberjocks.com/Delta356 Michael goes by Delta356 and is getting ready to be a full time woodworker after he graduates from high school. I like Michael’s chair that he designed an built. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/45827
I know of several other super young woodworking folks but I’ll let the LJ family list their Favorites
Great job to all you young folks who have taken up the joy of woodwoking.
