6 Week Scrap Wood Challenge

Live Now

As we all need to do our best to stay at home, we wanted to create an experience where you didn’t have to go the hardware store or the lumber yard… so that you could use limited wood, tools, and supplies, and still have an exceptionally positive woodworking experience during these difficult times.

The 6 Week Scrap Wood Challenge has been designed to create an online woodworking experience, were you can build alongside YouTube’s top makers, without having to leave your home or shop.

Starting on Friday, May 1st Neil Paskin will kick it off with the first of 6 Scrap Wood Challenges. That Friday, Neil will release an in-depth, step-by-step woodworking tutorial that will show you exactly how to build the same project that just went live on his YouTube channel.

The following Wednesday, Neil will be posting a video answering a curated list of questions that you may have had about the project during the building process.

Then, on the following Friday, another maker we will release their Scrap Wood Challenge LIVE on The Makers Mob, with a subsequent question period to follow that Wednesday.

Just because we are encouraged to keep our distance, doesn’t mean that we can’t still encourage one another online, connect with woodworkers from all over the world, and learn from a community that truly wants to celebrate your success in the shop.

…And of course a BIG THANK YOU to The Makers, Neil Paskin, The Samurai Carpenter, Jimmy DiResta, Jon Peters, Frank Howarth, and John Heisz for giving of your time to make this happen!
