Do you want to build learn basic woodworking, or build shop cabinets, but don't know where to start? I've been doing woodworking for over 30 years and have been designing and building shop cabinets for the last 4 years, and I love to share my learning with others. If you are just starting woodworking and don't know where to begin, I've got some great starter projects for you to work on that require a minimum of skills and tools. Most of my lessons are online via the Takelessons interface, but if you live near Lexington, KY, I'd be glad to teach you in my shop. My specialty is in designing and building shop cabinets quickly and efficiently. If you would like to design and build shop cabinets or custom drawers for a storage space that you would like to better utilize, you've come to the right place! If you or your child would like to learn basic woodworking (esp. during this COVID season), I would be excited to help you. Please send me a message if you have any questions.

I took this course with no woodworking experience, at all. Paul is a patient yet enthusiastic teacher. During lessons, he breaks down the steps and explains each in a way that makes sense to me. At
