God has gifted me with many “hands on” skills and it is my calling and purpose to share those skills by teaching others. Whether it is to seek a career in carpentry, become a general contractor or improve one’s DIY skills and knowledge, the motivation behind THA is to help others successfully learn how to work with their hands.

  1. Fantastic video Steve, I'm a 22 year old student teacher looking to pick up a hands-on hobby to escape essay and writing hell. This was one of the most uplifting and encouraging videos I've seen on youtube in ages, thank you so much for your awesome work!

  2. Help! My question is simple, how, exactly do I begin? This isn't the video for someone who knows nothing (zero) about this stuff. My late grandfather was a builder (among other things), and I've recently come across his old material. There's a lot of wood, a few different saws, a bunch of other things and a drill, but don't even know what all of this stuff is. I know I need a new door for the root cellar and I would like some raised garden beds, but I don't know what this stuff is, how to turn it on, how to use it, or even if it's safe. Help please.

  3. Recently became interested in woodworking so thank you for the video! And thank you for acting out the retired grandpa puttering in his garage. I really needed the visual on that one. 😂

  4. I have a couple of basic tools. Decided to start with some simple projects: a box, and a simple plant stand. Get to the orange store, and … I have no idea how to select my wood. What I think looks acceptable to work with will clearly need planing. How do I select wood? (No penis jokes, please.)

  5. I'm 25. Female. Born and raised in the city. But woodworking looks like fun and it pairs well with my other hobbies, so I thought, why not? Just a little scared of accidentally losing a finger.

  6. I used to woodwork a lot when I was in my 20’s. And for some reason, I stopped. Now that I’m in my mid 50’s, I started buying tools and lumber for projects again and picked up where I left off 30 years ago. It feels like an old friend just came through my door.

  7. Everyone drinks Malt on Monday,, Wine on Thursdays because of the sake on wendsday start our Fridays with Mimosas . NOW what I do on Saturdays makes no sense . So Sundays I go sprint 🏃‍♂️ and all day drink healthy Bloody Mary's with cucumbers 🥒 vodka extra spinach 😋

  8. Absolutely brilliant! I have great respect for the art of carpentry. I've always nurtured a 'secret' desire to learn some carpentry skills and have my very own little workshop, but being a lady sometimes means that people might not take you seriously if you try to step into this very male dominated world of construction. You are a GREAT teacher! Very inspiring! 👏👏👏👏

  9. This video is great. I'm sharing this with my middle school shop kids. These are the things I've been trying to explain and you put it together so nicely. Thanks for your efforts.

  10. Great style of comms, no unnecessary music or gimmicks, clear & concise with excellent on-topc information – I always learn and retain a lot from this presenter.

  11. I'm a 68yr old retired RN. You won't find me sitting and knotting. I want to do woodworking! I can't find local woodworking classes. I just found this and I'm excited about it. Very informative. Thank you, so much!

  12. I wanted to become an Army officer. Watching your videos, i want to become a Carpenter. From Pakistan (Asia)

  13. This video helps me to determine what i'm going to do before i do my project, still learning for woodwork thanks for this sir.
