Welcome to Paul Sellers’ Website!

This site is Paul Sellers’ woodworking blog and acts as a platform for his online voice.

Here is info about the ventures Paul is involved with, and many blog posts filled with knowledge he has gained throughout his lifetime.

Paul considers himself to be a lifestyle woodworker, woodworking is his passion. You can read more about how he started his journey by reading his biography.

We recommend you start with reading Paul’s disclaimer, so you know more about his biases, and you will know what to believe.

Paul writes and presents on Woodworking Masterclasses and Common Woodworking. Both these sites are rich with hand tool woodworking information, projects and inspiration. Common Woodworking is geared towards people who are getting started in hand tool woodworking. Woodworking Masterclasses has a whole range of content aimed at different levels but going up to much more complex concepts and projects.

He has founded two woodworking schools. The most recent is the New Legacy School of Woodworking. He is currently taking a break from in-person classes in order to focus on online teaching.

Paul has built furniture for many clients, including for the White House. He has also written books on woodworking, and he has presented hundreds of videos available on YouTube.
