added a few of my own. When I was 14, I began purchasing a few power tools and started to combine videography with woodworking. I filmed my first project video in January or February of 2013 and a month later I made a little trailer video to promote my channel. In June of 2013, I posted my first project, which launched the Woodworking Nut YouTube Channel!
Q: How old are you?
A: I am 21 years old.
Q: What is the first tool I should get if I am new to woodworking?
A: I would get a decent table saw. Table saws can be purchased fairly cheap for about $200-$300 for a basic one. My table saw is a little more expensive, it's the Delta 13-Amp 10-in Table Saw.
Q: How did you get all of those tools? Did you buy them?
A: I worked as an umpire during the summers and slowly purchased the tools I needed. At first, I bought cheaper tools that could get the job done. Most of those tools were the brand Ryobi from Home Depot. Ryobi tools are great for newcomers because they are priced fairly cheap but work great. Today, I am still working my way up to better brand names like Delta, Ridgid, DeWalt, and other popular brands.
Q: Can I commission you to make a project for me?
A: Sorry, but I just don't have the time. Making a weekly project takes up a lot of my time and if I made projects for people, then I wouldn't have time to make the show.
Q: Do you take video requests?
A: Yes! I love hearing what viewers would like me to make. To submit a request, you can do so in the contact box above. However, please understand that I may only make certain projects that I feel will be a good addition to my show.

I enjoyed making random videos and posting them on my very first YouTube Channel (Not Woodworking Nut). After a year or two of doing this, I discovered woodworking and started watching YouTube videos on how to build simple projects. I taught myself different techniques that I saw in the videos and even
