My time spent in the shop lately has be very little with the cold of the Minnesota winter on top of me and a broken heater in my shop. A sad situation and the parts to fix it are on order, but this has given me extra time for my social media and to see what everyone else is building or working on in their shops.
I would concider myself to be a traditional woodworker so I tend to be drawn to that style of woodworking. Cabinets assembled with handcut dovetails, through tenons with fancy wedges and don't get me started on period furniture we could be here all day. But this does not mean I don't watch every venue of woodworking, from quick DIY projects to metal fabricators incorporating wood into their latest creations I enjoy it all. Although this may not be the types of woodworking I do, I still find inspiration in all of it and being able to inspire anyone is really what being a content creator is all about.
Looking ahead to this coming year and the new content, the new faces and the new experiences it will bring gets me excited, much like the proverbial child in a candy store. It has been two years since my first video was uploaded to YouTube, and when I think about where I have come since then it makes me anxious to see where The Shavingwood Workshop will be in year from now. My content has grown and continues to grow since that first video because of you, my subscribers, followers and supporters. You are the reason I am here able to do what I love, the never ending words of kindness and encouragement, your contributions and most of all your belief in me. For all of this and so much more thank you, you are all amazing and I am grateful to everyone of you.
This coming year is going to contain a lot of changes for me and the content I produce. The biggest of these changes is going to be the purchase of a new home and a bigger shop, this will allow me to undertake much bigger projects, projects that I currently can not take on with the limited space I have in my current shop. I am also addressing changes in my social media, the website and simalar venues I am currently involved in. All of these changes are geared towards being able to create better content for you. There is no denying this is going to be an exciting year for everyone involved and I look forward to it.
