To celebrate reaching 400,000 subscribers on YouTube, I am doing a giveaway! I am giving away:

  • One of my tenon saws
  • A signed copy of my book: Essential Woodworking Hand Tools
  • A 6-month premium membership to our Woodworking tutorial site, Woodworking Masterclasses.

    Those prizes are going to make several people very happy.

    Winning that tenon saw would feel like a big responsibility. Can’t have it hanging on the wall as an ornament. And to make at least as good use of it as mr. Sellers, that’ll sure be a challenge to anyone! And there’d be no excuse such as blaming your tools when your tenons, dovetails etc. don’t come out perfect…

    It’s funny. If I were fortunate enough to win, I would keep and cherish the book but I would be most excited to in turn gift the saw to my father, who first showed me what a person can make with their own hands, and the MasterClasses membership to my brother, who I hope to temp and convert to the virtues of hand tool work.

    Hi Paul congratulations. I’m already a winner I’ve learned so much watching you on YouTube

    Paul, your timing with the prizes is impeccable, just in time for my 79th birthday.

    Well done Sir. 400,000 Subscribers. Not many can say that. A testimony to your ability to work wood and teach.
    Thank you. I am appreciative of the confidence you have helped me gain since retirement.

    I am currently trying to relearn the hand working skills forgotten over the years, gained with borrowed tools. A good tenon saw is high on my list of tools of acquire. Having one of yours would be icing on the cake!

    At 45 yrs old, I feel I’m new to the idea of using hand tools for wood working. Mr. Sellers has been a constant source of inspiration and helpful hints on how to proceed on this journey. Thank you for sharing your all with so many people.

    Have a great day Y’all

    At 70 years of age, I’m finally learning how to properly use and care for tools that I’ve had for 40 years. I’ve learned a lot from Paul, but what I like most is how he exudes a lifestyle of simplicity, patience, quiet discipline, kindness, contentedness and appreciation so naturally. You are a great model for life itself. I’m happy that at least 400,000 share this attitude.

    Not really a subscriber, chances are about nil.

    Just completed a large Tool Cabinet to hold 90% of my hand tools. Getting ready to build a Til for all the hand planes, next….already have a decent Til for the handsaws.

    Last two times I posted comments on this site…they disappeared. have posted several photos of Projects to the Gallery…haven’t seen a one show up, yet….been doing wood working since Freshman in High School…back in the mid 60s….been retired for a few years, and use my wood shop to pass the time.
    other than Friends and Family, and things I need built…that is it.

    If, or when, someone says they need a tool to do wood work, and I have an extra…I simply mail said item to them….Paying Forward.

    There has been a Standing Offer in my shop…IF someone picks up a plane, and can’t seem to get it to work, or too Rusty & Krusty to get there….They can send it to my shop, no charge, other than they pay postage both ways. I will have said plane working like new, and send it back to them….sometimes within a single day….fettled and sharpened, ready to go right out of the shipping box.

    just the way I do things…
