    This is helpful. I want to start woodworking as a hobby and your video came just in time. I like using hand tools also and buying them already costing me as they not commonly available in my country. I am excited to start woodworking

    I’m new at woodworking as well and I have to remind myself constantly that my projects will take longer than those who have been woodworking for years!!

    That’s very helpful indeed , I’m new hand tool beginner as well and it looks hard at the beginning to work but by time I learned a lot 😊 .
    What amazes me until now that I start a simple projects and doing it without thinking for perfection , turns out ok at the end .
    Been 2 and half years since I started and learned this :
    _ Buying good quality tools is very helpful and satisfying .
    _ Always start your work in a good mood .
    _ Sharp tools is always your best friend .
    _ Practice a lot for dimension your wood .
    _ Always take your time and enjoy your work .
    _ jigs always improve your work .
    _ Taking rest & drink & some water helps .
    _ Working with different kind of wood is a joy .
    I love woodworking 😊 .

    I’m just finding your channel. I like how you’re producing quality items w/o having a large shop with lots of tools. I think unless you’re making lots of an item, power tools don’t make it much faster. You get noise, dust and danger and spend lots of time making jigs to make things safer. I love my bandsaw for rip cuts, milling lumber, but I do most of my crosscuts w/ a rouba.

    Very cool retrospective of your work so far. It is appreciated that you take interest in the process, especially tool making, as individual finished works. You have a philosophical and educational gift for sharing as well, so do keep up the channel! I have not watched everything as yet but if you have not done it, perhaps a small piece on the name "Daughters Wood Co" ?
