I wanted to take a moment to let everyone know what has been going on in the shop. I have been working on a set of three tables that I hope to have done in a couple of weeks. They are by far one of my favorite creations to date. I have been working on them for a couple months because life and commissioned projects have interrupted the completion of the set. On another note I started a Patreon page for a special project that I have been brainstorming for quite some time. I am preparing to put out ongoing videos for Youtube that are called Get Kids Woodworking. The whole purpose is to show people that you can create wood projects without fancy tools or a fancy shop. My biggest push for doing so is that schools have lost woodshops due to budget cuts around our nation. That being said I feel it is important for us as parents and as a society to pick up the slack. I hope that as this project gains momentum I can have guests in the shop(especially youngsters) to help demonstrate basic skills that can create fun, functional items for them to enjoy.
If you are not familiar with Patreon it is a crowdfunding site that helps creators using small re-occuring donations. My Patreon page is set up on a per video basis and my goal is to get $100 per video I put out. I will use these funds to purchase a better camera and video editing software. If you feel inclined to help me out please click the link below. Once on the Patreon page you will see a couple of videos as well as a button to become a Patreon. Every person that supports my cause will be rewarded and those rewards are listed on the site as well.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
