Steve, like many others here I have been watching your video's for some time. Your keepsake "book box" seamed very approiate for some kids that have been helping me at work. So I made 10 of them. They all personalized, are made from spalted maple, walnut, and laminated mahagoney vennier to look like pages of a book. I will be giving them to the kids on the 13th at graduation. these sixth graders have been a big help to me at the school, and I just wanted to thank you for the idea. Keep up the great fun and ideas.

Steve, I've been watching your videos on youtube for quite some time. You mentioned on the lumber cart video that you have a plan or at least a cut sheet for it. Where can I find that? I imagine I could figure it out on my own, but why do that if you already have one?

Hey Steve,

I just watched a few of your videos. I just wanted to say, awesome!  I love your fun spirited attitude. I think that's what woodworking should be. I also like you're practicality. You also do a great job of explaining. Thanks Steve I hope you keep it up.

To add to my comment earlier 1 thing I do have to my advantage is i had ample room for a shop I have a 3 car detached pole barn and a 2 car garage attached and we rarely park the car or truck in either. My truck is lifted and will not fit in the pole barn so I'm prob going to use the 2 car for mechanic work but would like most of my big wood working tools on casters to move to and from from each for remodeling projects. So Steve any anyone else looking to give me tips keep my avid space in mind but don't forget i'd like to keep most if not all tools reasonablly price 500 or less but could possiblly stretch to 1000 but would take longer to get. 


Thanks Steve and anyone else who may help

Hi Steve I am new to wood working actually brand new. I don't even really have the tools to really start but I'm trying to decide where to start like what to buy first. Funds are low but not to low so it will be a slow start. I'm actually going to start making some rustic lamps, tissue box holders, bird houses, picture frames, and maybe other things i can think of from twigs, branches, and other natural materials I can find to try to sell them for mone to put towards tools and such. Right now I have some basics tools like a circular saw, hammer, cordless screwgun, level, a small Black n Decker hand held jig saw, a small hand held router, and a sawzall. I use to have an old drill press but sold it in a yard salw cheap (stupid of me) because I hadn't used it since my wife baought it for at another yard sale.  She hasn"t bought me a tool since (Ha Ha jokes on me). Can't say I blame her though. I have been watching all your videos on Youtube they are great believe me when i say I know why they picked you for a video for Wood Mag. You have a great talent for making your videos not only instructional but entertaining as well. The first video i watched was one of your magic videos I believe it was the disappearing box or the one you did the tricks in not completely sure but one of those it was awesome. I thought this guy needs a show on DIY or something. The ABC video was halarious. Keep up the good work. I aslo want to comend you on how you get your son envolved with you that is awesome and I hope to do the same. My son is 10 and he is like my little shadow and my best friend. I hope it stays like that forever. Well any ideas or tips would be great, keep coming with those great entertianing videos i'm saving them all. p.s. I sent you a friend request on this site and on youtube. I would understand if you dont except since you don't really know me but would like to. My screen name on Youtube is Purecountry72. 1 last thing did you ever do a video on the chess pieces?

recently completed my first cube in a cube after watching your video. I am very much a beginner woodworker. I love to putter around out in the small woodshop ( very small) I usally stick to bird houses, feeders etc. However you have inspired me to try other things and what fun it is. The cube in a cube has been great entertainment for me. When people ask me how it is done, I rib them a little. I might say something like i heated the cube for days in a kiln then slipped it in the hole, then soaked it for days to make it swell, or that I sit there and whittled the wood for days on end. In the end, I turn on my laptop or computer and take them to your site. Its amazing the fun and energy that pours out of you onto the screen. Entertainment is great, Your instructions and demos are real simplistic even i can follow most of it. Keep up the fun and sharing techinques!
