  20. 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.

  21. Happy Birthday, Paul! All the best!
    Thank you for being there for us, your
    (online:) students.

  22. Happy Birthday Paul! Thank you for all you do! I just started watching your videos this past fall and you have provided so much inspiration with your craft but also your outlooks on life and sustainability. I am just starting out, but you have already helped to shape the woodwork I will become. I hope you have the happiest of birthdays!

  23. Happy Birthday, Paul, Thanks for all you do, I’m so looking forward to the rocking chair series and much more this year…

  24. Happy Birthday Paul! 🥳

    I’ve learned so much from you the past years! It’s always a joy when a new project comes out! 😁

    Many virtual ‘hip hip hoorays’ and have a wonderful day, week, month, year!

    Kind regards
    Toby from Flanders/Belgium.

  38. Paul, Happy Birthday, we have of course never met. But woodworking has become a big part of my life over the last six years and your videos have taught me more than anyone else and provided me with great joy and illumination. I think of you as my woodworking mentor. Thank you. Josh Marshall.

  39. Dear Paul,
    A happy birthday to you, I hope you have (had) a wonderful and blessed day. I wish for you a healthy and happy year, in whi h you can share your invaluable knowledge with us.

    You have taught me almost all I know about woodworking and suggested tools which I now have and use with great pleasure. Thank you for all that and I hope to keep learning from you in the future.

    Kind refards,

  40. Happy Birthday, Paul! All the best for the New Year!
    Thanks for your excellent book and the DVD..

  41. Happy birthday Mr. Sellers! Keep up your passion and hard work and keep on inspiring others!

  42. Happy Birthday Mr.Sellers.
    My Grandfather and Father were master carpenters and worked on homes and built furniture all over Pennsylvania. I inherited all of there tools, no power tools. So I watch you to help me learn how to use them.
    Thank you

  43. Happy Birthday Paul! Thank you for so many years of instruction and service to our community!

  44. I wish you happy birthday Paul and I wish you many more years always lived in good health and as your heart desires.

  45. 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

  57. Happy Birthday from Oregon! Thanks for all the great information you’ve put out there – it’s been inspiring and helpful to me on multiple levels.

  58. 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!

  59. We share the same birth year Paul. I love following everything you do concerning woodworking and also your philosophies. It is my sincerest hope that this year will be a good one for you. Happy birthday.

  60. 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.

  61. 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.

  62. Happy Birthday Paul. Many thanks for all the great videos and superb books, one of mine signed by your good self. Keep safe!

  63. 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!

  64. Happy birthday, Paul. Massive inspiration. Always point people in your direction if they’re interested in woodwork!

  65. A very happy birthday and a wonderful new year, from British Columbia, Canada. Cheers

  66. Happy birthday Paul and thanks for all you do for your supporters! Many blessings!

  67. And you’re teaching on your birthday: I take a 2nd look at the picture and in the background i see shelves. I see the shelves are recessed at the front. Now that’s what i call timing as i prep with my cut list to go out and make shelves in my garage. Thanks for the perfeclty times lesson!

  68. Happy Birthday and Happy New Year Paul, hope its a good one for you and all of yours. Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration you provide and sharing you do.
    All the best

  69. Birthday present: a ridgeboard for your greenhouse? Send me your requirements and favourite local wood shop and I’ll get it paid for and waiting for you to pickup. Cheers john.morrisonATgmail.com (change the AT)

  70. Happy Birthday from Switzerland! All the best for another year in your hopefully long and healthy life! Recently your book arrived and it’s a joy to read 🙂 Thank Paul for sharing your passion with us and inspiring a whole generation or rather generations of wood workers and humans in general!

  71. Happy birthday Paul, I hope you had a great day. You’ve had such a big influence on me and so many others across the globe. Wishing you every happiness!

  72. 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!

  88. Happy Birthday Paul!

    I would have never got into hand tool woodworking if it wasn’t for your inspiration and common sense approach.

    Hope you enjoy your day with loved ones.

  121. You’ll be up all night reading this lot, Paul, but it shows how much we think of you.

    Did anyone buy you a chisel? Thought not.

    Happy Birthday and many thanks for all your kindnesses to us throughout a difficult year.

  124. Happy birthday Paul!

    You have inspired me into loving woodworking and pursue it as a hoppy.

    All the best to you and your family.

  125. Happy birthday Paul.
    Most of the time when somebody ask questions on Lumberjock, a link to your video or post gives the answer.

    I have learned so much from you.

  126. Happy Birthday Paul!

    Thank you for teaching us woodworking with hand tools!
    Over fifteen years ago I stopped trying to learn woodworking because the magazines I was reading had me believe I needed a bunch of machinery I couldn’t afford.
    You’ve shown me that’s not true.

    Thank you!

  127. Happy birthday mentor Paul.
    I love to watch your work and the skills you have in your hands, You only have about 6 months to catch up to me since I also turned 71 back in June. God Bless you and grant you many more years of helping teach the hand tool woodworking trade.

  128. Happy birthday Paul!
    You are an inspiration to us all. As I have recently retired from 45 years in restaurant kitchens I was looking for a number of things to keep me moving forward on my journey. Photography and playing my guitars and woodworking projects when I stumbled on your video on chisel sharpening, I since have devoured all your videos several times. At the onset I was put off by the expense of power tools and the room to house them all, however after viewing your videos and purchasing elderly planes ( Stanley 4,5,&6 on eBay) for the price of one new plane, a whole new world has opened up to me.
    Thank you and be well
    Rob Sacco

  129. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, Many Happy Returns,
    I have always liked the thought that black cats may be lucky, and although not superstitious, like one about our cottage !
    It would be nice to imagine that the coming year will only get better when you have three in the garden for company when digging,planting and constructing.

  130. Happy Birthday Paul! I can’t think of a single person who has so inspired hundreds of thousands of new and existing woodworkers to improve their woodworking skills, especially with the use of hand tools. Your vast knowledge and willingness to share it speaks volumes about your love for the profession. From sharing your life with us all on your posts it is obvious that yours has been a life well-lived. I wish you many more joyous and healthy birthdays in the future. Thank you for all that you do.

  131. Happy Birthday Paul,
    you deserve a gong for all your efforts there are so many positives that come from the classes you provide in hand tool work.
    Kind Regards

  132. Happy Birthday Paul. I would bet that it is the best cut cake possible with all slices being even and square and measured to perfection 😀

  133. God bless and my sincere appreciation for your teaching. I have been an amateur woodworker for 30 years with only a modicum of improvement over most of that time. Paul, you have such a clarity when teaching that I immediately grasp, and I am leaps and bounds more capable today than when I discovered your teaching a few years ago. Happy Birthday, and New Year!

  134. Paulo, é com muito carinho que desejo que nunca te falte inspiração. Inspiração para continuar aprendendo a cada dia mais e transmitindo isso a todos nós, para que você não só continue ensinando, mas também mude a vida nos ensinando com o prazer e as técnicas que domina, proporcionando momentos mágicos dentro e fora da sala de aula, assim como fez comigo e com milhões de pessoas!

    Parabéns pelo seu aniversário!

  135. Happy belated birthday Mr. Sellers. Thank you for the inspiration from an 83 year old amature.

  136. Happy Birthday Paul.
    You are an inspitation and have encouraged me to make more things from wood in addition to my woodturning.

  137. My what a lot of comments. Well, you have earned it Paul. Happy Birthday to you and many more. Online mentoring is turning into a really positive thing that you are doing and you are an inspiration to all of us. April 2021 will be my own 71st and looking to make the best of it. Thank you so much Paul.

  138. Happy Birthday, Paul!
    You have been one of the few bright rays of hope for the past year.

  139. Happy Birthday Paul, from Ontario, Canada
    I hope you are having a great day!

  144. 71? Heck – just a pup yet. Happy Birthday from a land where morning bike rides have us put ice spikes in tires first this time of year. Thanks for just being you, someone who has made such a huge quiet difference.

  145. Happy Birthday Paul,
    I wish you many more such days. Many thanks for your inspiration and sharing your knowleg . It needs more craftmen like you, who teaches the basics to young people.
    By the way, your last book is great.
    All the best to you and your team for the future from Germany.

  146. Happy Birthday Paul. You are such an inspiration!! I pray God will richly bless you through out 2021 and the years ahead! Looking forward to many more years of you inspired teaching.

  147. Mr. Sellers,
    You have been a great inspiration to me during this pandemic. Listening to you patiently describe the process of the work you do and the thoughts and sensory experiences that you have while doing it made me feel like I had someone teaching just me. Listening to your voice and the words you say has been a great comfort also. I wish you the happiest of birthdays sir. I hope I continue to have the fortunate blessing of hearing your voice inspire and teach for many more decades.

  148. Paul you have been a real inspiration to me for many years now. I first discovered you when I found that my Morrison’s machine wouldn’t work and I was “forced” to cut mortises by hand. I found one of your videos online, learned the skill under your tutelage and haven’t cut a mortise with a machine since! Your passion and generosity for sharing your hard earned skills are a real inspiration. Thank you for everything and a very Happy Birthday!🎉

  149. Happy birthday Paul. Not just a lover of woodworking, but of people, the countryside and philosophy too.

  150. Happy Birthday Paul. We are the same age. I met you online and watched your youtube videos to relax before sleeping. Then I got hooked! I am having a bit of trouble learning to sharpen my old saws, but I am eager to get past this in the future. Thank you for your calm and dedication to teaching!

    Praying for your health help and happiness in this next “run around the sun”

  151. Happy birthday Paul and all the best to yourself and all your family and work collegues please keep up the good work. Started with your bench you built in you garden with laminated soft wood and now have a shed/workshop full of your “stuff” and have been an allotment gardner for 40 years plus so lots in common with yourself, all the best Ted Nicholls in Peterborough.

  152. Happy birthday, Paul.
    Thanks for all the inspiring videos and advice given.
    You give, we receive and benefit.
    Yours sincerely, Charles Bradshaw

  153. A most happy and birthday 🎂wish to you Paul and thank you for that quiet voice heard as I work the wood, it’s magical.

  154. Happy birthday Paul. I really love your videos and blog posts. You are an inspiration to us all. While I haven’t built many of your projects your designs are wonderful and I feel I learn a lot just watching your techniques.

  155. A most happy and birthday 🎂wish to you Paul and thank you for that quiet voice heard as I work the wood, it’s magical.

  158. Paul, Happy Birthday! You are the bomb! The nuclear option—top of the heap. Thank you VERY much for your magnificent contribution to our craft.
    Bought your book for Christmas, and the commenters were RIGHT, it is outstanding. Warmest regards to you and your team.

  159. I wish you the Happiest of Birthdays Paul. May Gods Blessings & Holy Angels be with you and your family. Thank you very much for your generous spirit of sharing all your knowledge. May you be able to work your craft as long as you live Sir.

  160. Happy Birthday Paul,
    Being near 68 in a few months, I know about how it goes. I have learned a bit and hope you keep your health, woodworking and family and faith foremost.

  161. Happy Birthday,Paul. I wish you had been around in 1973 when I started to do woodworking in NYC. My information came from English woodworking books and where does one find “deal” in NY ? After embracing machinery for decades I now live in the country and with your help and enthusiasm am working more and more with hand tools. Better on the ears. Thanks

  162. Happy Birthday Paul and very best wishes to you, your family and your team. You do inspiring work and I’ve learned a lot of useful things from your blog, youtube etc . I wish I’d met a woodworking teacher like yourself when I was at school.. I’m particularly glad that you maintain the hand-tool skills and craftsmanship that has been lost in so many places under the pressure to get rapid results regardless of quality and durability. Wishing you health, happiness and enduring, durable, wealth.

  163. Happy birthday Paul,
    And thank you so much for teaching us so much. I never dreamed that working with my hands could be so fulfilling.

    Love your work

    Dominik from Germany

  164. Happy birthday Paul, and many more to follow. I’ll be 71 on the 6th of February. I found your blog about three months ago and haven’t missed a day since. Your inspiration and informative knowledge has been very helpful. I’m still in the process of building my work bench, hope to finish by my birthday. In a way it will be a birthday present from you. I’m still reading your books, watching your videos, and looking forward to your next book. I’ve purchased some tools to get started per your suggestion, and plan on following your guidelines. Hope your birthday brings you all the joyful memories to build your kindness further into the future. Take care and thanks again Paul. Your friend from Brunswick, Ohio in the USA. Bob Lenart.

    Best wishes,

Happy Birthday, Paul.

  175. Happy, happy Birthday Paul! I wish you all the health and happiness this coming year and I am looking forward to all the time I get to spend learning from and enjoying your awesome content. You have had such a great impact and been a huge influence in my life the past 3 years since my Dad passed away. You have honestly kept me going and I am forever grateful. I hope you enjoy your special day.

  176. Happy birthday Paul! Your teaching has given me a lifelong skill and purpose, setting me on a path I never expected. I owe you much.

  177. Happy birthday Paul!

    Just like many here you have been a great source of woodworking knowledge for me, and there are no words that can express the debt of gratitude that I and others owe you for the wealth of knowledge and skill that you have passed on to us.

    Hand tool woodworking has been a big part of my life since the start of lockdown here in Sydney Australia last March 2020. Before then I couldn’t even cut wood with any saw. Now I’ve made a few of your dovetail boxes, a couple of wooden mallets, your tool drawer organiser and even my very own workbench based on your videos.

    Thank you.

  178. Happy Birthday, Paul.

    Since starting to watch your videos, I’ve made, and then given to our local Visiting Nurses Thrift Shop, about 75 dovetail boxes based on the ones you make. They sell quickly and help support their worthy organization.

    Thank you,

  179. Hope you had a great day Paul, doing just what you wanted to do. Keep enjoying life! We enjoy having you around.

  180. Happy birthday Mr Sellers, thank you for all of your help and more than anything else keeping us sane during lock down! Happy new year, Elliott.

  186. Happy birthday, Paul!

    I’ve been a fan since the very early days, even before YouTube and Woodworking Masterclass videos, which I have subscribed to all along.

    Your teaching style and methods resonated with me immediately. You’ve completely changed my woodworking approach and techniques for the better. Thank you.

    All good wishes forwarded from Gatineau, QC, Canada.

  188. Happy belated birthday, Paul. I want to thank you so much for the work that you do and the love and skills you share with us. I have enjoyed making a number of your designs, some with modifications, and learned so much. I owe so much of my skills and confidence in woodworking/furniture making to you; it all began with a nine-day workshop in Greenwich, NY a half-dozen years ago.

  189. A very Happy Birthday to you Paul from the USA. I’m an expat following in your footsteps, but in Oregon and more recently Colorado.

    You’re an inspiration, a joy to watch, and it’s an honor to learn from you.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge, skill, and wisdom with your videos and blog posts. Hope your 71st year brings you much happiness and joy.

    — sending you the best from Oregon, United States.

  199. Sir Paul ; Mine was the 16th. I’m now 74. My Dad learned the trade back in the 1920’s when he arrived from Norway at the ripe old ae of 16 ! He learned from Norwegian and German cabinetmakers in Brooklyn n y . I learned from him what I have been watching you also do. Variations of course.
    One thing bothers me immensely about your placement of your planes face/blade down. Dad would have, SHOT, me if I hade done that. I Always set the plane down on its, SIDE, so the blade would not be damaged on the workbench. I have most of Dads tools including even a 24″ Stanley Joiner plane. Oh, the stories ! That is my 2 cents. Otherwise, YOU, know your business ! Thank YOU , Leonard J. Muller 40 Russell Road, Greenfield Center n y 12833
