Woodworking is a hobby is that always remains fresh. We constantly learn new techniques and hone existing skills. The array of projects we can pursue is endless, limited only by our imaginations. One of my favorite parts of woodworking is coming up with an idea of something to build and sitting down to figure out how to do it. Woodworking draws on every part of the brain: creativity, analytical thinking, artistry, mathematics, logic, motor skills, intuition, instinct, spatial awareness, and even some philosophy.
My aim is to make woodworking seem approachable to anyone of any skill level. I try to come up with projects that — I hope — are intriguing, useful and fun.
Mere Mortal videos
All of my videos are available on my YouTube channel. As I post new ones, I cross-post them here, which allows me room provide further insight. Please check them out and perhaps find something that will inspire you to saw some wood. While you could certainly make exact duplicates of any of my projects, it is not my intention on the videos to provide complete step-by-step instruction. I find most of those types of videos really dull. The idea is to get a general feel for the project and make your own version of it: probably even enhancing it. Take whatever techniques you find interesting and apply them to something of your own.
