    I hope you have the happiest of birthdays! I discovered your videos on YouTube by chance about a year ago and it inspired me to explore hand tool woodworking. Now I have all the basics and am working on my first workbench! You’re the best around and have such a wonderful teaching style. Looking forward to following more of your projects in 2021!

  28. nemo on 4 January 2021 at 3:20 pm

    Happy birthday, mr. Sellers.

    Another year older, another year wiser.

    I celebrated in my own way, removing the teeth from an old, terribly butchered-up saw, one that’s definitely older than 71 years. Someone in its long history attempted to sharpen it. The result was a nightmare. Who knows how long it has been sitting in that condition, useless.

    Today I removed the rust and filed off the old teeth, made new nicks with a modified hacksaw following your procedure and filed new teeth. Only thing remaining is to give it its final sharpening tomorrow and a bit of linseed oil for the handle. It was getting too cold in the shed, my fingers were beginning to turn blue, so time to get back in the house to warm up a bit.

    Thanks to you this little pistol-gripped 12″ saw today got a new lease on life. This saw shares its new birthday with the craftsman who showed this bumbling apprentice how to go about the task.

  29. Tomasz on 4 January 2021 at 3:24 pm

    Happy Birthday, Paul! All the best!

  73. Dan Maxwell on 4 January 2021 at 6:04 pm

    A very Happy Birthday Paul. You have become a constant source of encouragement to me and especially since this pandemic has left a lot of us home bound. To be honest I have turned to your blog, Facebook page and of course the masterclass daily and sometimes several times during the day. I suffer from Anxiety, Depression and more recently arthritis, so the woodworking has helped all three of these. You have a way of teaching that not many have. I truly do appreciate what you do. What you offer is much more then a woodworking class, Its also a place of calm and relaxing therapy delivered by just doing what you are so good and and obviously enjoy.

    Thanks again Paul

    Sincere best birthday wishes Paul.
    I think you know that what you do has a powerful impact on so many people.
    For me, a chance meeting with you at Penrhyn Castle followed by the privelege of attending one of your courses has literally led to my life and work changing forever.
    Sincerely grateful for that – my only regret is that it didn’t happen sooner!
    Happy Birthday!

  98. Justin on 4 January 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Happy birthday Paul. I found you randomly on YouTube and it was an escape I needed from stressing from our US politics and later COVID. It got me interested and I realized I didn’t need big fancy equipment that would spread dust around our house, I could start with hand tools.

  99. Artur Darmofal on 4 January 2021 at 8:17 pm

    Apart from wishing all the best – congratulations for having such a great team of people around you. Very inspiring to see all of you working together to add value every day.

  103. JudithAnn Colein on 4 January 2021 at 8:41 pm

    I hope you have some idea of the many hours of learning and pleasure you give to so very many people. I am so grateful for the time my late husband “spent” with you watching your videos–over and over again–to absorb your messages of life and information. Often, he would call me to come and listen with him. I will be passing these on to his grandchildren who are becoming interested in woodworking. I look forward to whatever you chose to post on Facebook. We are lucky, as a planet, to have you among us. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, Paul!

  104. J Yates on 4 January 2021 at 9:20 pm

  115. Will Adams on 4 January 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Happy Birthday, Paul!

    I can say with confidence and without exaggeration that you have helped to change my life. Your instructional videos invited me to explore woodworking for the first time since I was in shop class as a teenager. I’ve wanted to create with wood since then and your videos helped me discover a craft that I adore. I appreciate your skill and artistry but I’ve come to appreciate equally your approach to life. Thank you for sharing yourself with us not only through your instruction but through your blogs and vlogs.

    All. my best wishes to you!
    Will

    Happy birthday, Paul!

    We share the same birthday, yet on different years. This year you are celebrating your 71st, and I my 50th. So I was born in ‘71. 🙂 Interesting coincidence!
    I admire your work, and all the tips related to woodworking hand tools! Thank you for your Instagram posts and youtube videos!

    Many happy returns!

    Do not worry about counting them as long as you can walk and talk, all else keeps you warm and healthy. Enjoy your work and family and things will continue you for many years. I know this as I am coming up to 83 year and am drawing up plan to be built. Be Happy. Robert

I wish you strength and serenity of spirit, mind and body to keep with your wonderful work for as long as you want.
