I had a great day on lumber jocks yesterday i had got 2 daily top 3’s in the one day with my space saving lumber storage and my small stool made entirely from hand tools, so now i have daily top 3 awards (my other being my homemade table saw). Its great seeing all the encouragement of people and it gives me great inspiration.

well deserved adam

an inspiration in that you find a way to keep at it
regardless of any problems or lack of tools

there is always a way forward
we just need to be open minded to see it

thanks for reminding of this

If people would not just keep their mouth shut when they see someone who is eager to learn and has the passion, then I’m sure you would be flooded with compliments.
What people are saying in their replies is that they applaud your getup up and go spirit and see that you have talent written all over you that is developing and will end up making you a very capable and professional woodworker. We are all very pleased to see this, as I must imagine, your mum and dad are too.

You are are future.
Some of us get to the shop when we are physically able. Also, for some of us, we fear wood working being a dying craft. I have eight kids. The youngest four practically live in the shop with me. They do not have the drive you have shown for this craft though. Your work is to be commended.
If what you’ve posted here had come from a grown man, it would be just fine. Coming from a person of your age though makes it fantastic.

Now I must back up for a second and say something else.
I live in the US. Here, most kids, if it isn’t on a video game screen, they don’t care about it. If they needed a frame for a drawing their father drew their mother, they’s buy it. Worse yet, they wouldn’t worry about it at all and wait for their parents to buy it.

From what I’ve seen, you’re making some great projects. Truth be known though, you could be building crap projects and you’d still be ahead of the curve compared to most young people of today. I hope you keep on doing what you do. It is an inspiration to others.
