    I wish girls had been allowed to take wood shop when I was in high school. I have watched YT and some personal instruction later in life, and it is now one of my hobbies. I’m 71

    Cool video! You can definitely tell that you have a lot of experience teaching this stuff.

    This vid is really smooth, thanks! Couple it with Woody Hyezmar’s concepts (go’ogle him) and your head will be spinning with some awesome and really creative ideas!

    I`m in the retirement phase of my life. I do a bit of cabinetry, produce musical instruments, and conduct woodturning in my little shop. I stumbled upon this woodworking guide, “Bαzοmο Tdy Plαn” (Google it), and obtained it even though I have several woodworking books in the house. It is the most comprehensive book I`ve come across. Each and every topic of the book is covered effectively. .

    Sorry, was busier earlier, but yep, I think Woody is still giving away his woodworking book, but I’m not so sure. I managed to get it go’ogling Woody Hyezmar, and was surprised to see his "Woodworking Bible" up for grabs, hope this helps.

    Hey, there. Great video. I have grand kids who love to work in my wood shop and I am always looking for projects for them.
    Minor comment- I wish you would have explained the plunge-routered keyhole slots in the back of your key holder that showed briefly at time mark 4:28. Another skill the student could learn.

    I miss my high school shop teacher. Thank you for sharing. Love your projects!

    Need more schools adopting workshop and other industrial art classes.

    First of all, thank you for teaching woodshop. I’m 57 and still have the wall sconces that I made in high school, which are now hanging in my living room. Cleaning up all my scrap wood today wondering, "will I really ever use these pieces?’ Your video came at just the right time. I think that candy dispenser is a somewhat unique and easy project that just happens to call for smaller pieces of wood. Just have to find a jar now. Thanks again and take care my friend!

    Your projects are turning out really amazing and I’m thinking of build my own woodwork project of BMX camper trailer and its going to be 2 storey mini cabin to tow anywhere ggod spot to camp and its going to have a mini lounge room,kitchen and bedroom plus shower and portable toilets for out side and keep it clean every after use and then run full power light with generators and saves you to charge phone batteries up and will have widescreen tv and surround sound system to go in then be sweet looking trailer on my bike and definitely can’t wait for next summer days to go put camping to catch some fish or even go quad riding and now I wanted to build a trailer to tow my quad to beach and its so good to ride your push around with quad on trailer

    Hey I’ve seen a lot of projects and tutorials, and I have to say if you want a collection of decent projects and you’re just beginning, start by go’ogling Woody Hyezmar’s Woodworking Bible.
