Topic tags/keywords: question

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.

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.
