    Paul Sellers Blog

    I read PS's blog from time to time and thought that others who have not visited his blog might enjoy reading some of his thoughts on woodworking.

    https://paulsellers.com/2018/12/ther...ough-of-us-yet

    It reminds me of my period of woodworking development when James Krenov began writing his books. Paul Sellers and James Krenov's final projects did not appeal to me that much but they inspired woodworkers who were questioning the value of making special things in wood.


    I like Paul's idea about the internet making things available and at the same time difficult to filter what's best.

    Take a look.

    The date says December 10, 2018 but I'm pretty sure I've read this same commentary almost verbatim in the past.

    Yep, some of those same sentences and paragraphs are from his book.

    Re: Paul Sellers Blog

    Young people today appreciate quality and hand made goods far more than my generation and those older. I don't believe woodworking is in any danger of going extinct in my lifetime.
