Important News from Colin Knecht about WoodWorkWeb!

Nothing ever stays the same, things constantly change and evolve and so it is with Colin and the woodworkweb website and YouTube Channel. After 15 years of videos and 95 million views, Colin has decided he wants to change some of the woodworking topics he has been making the past few years and catch up on some of the woodworking builds he has been wanting to make for a long time ...

Colin also wants to do more traveling, which means he could easily be in your neighborhood sometime in the future, attending one of your woodworking guild meetings or a local wood show or other events. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to keep updated on his latest builds and locations. The good news is the channel and website will continue on, just at a bit slower pace than in the past. Colin is deeply grateful for all the support, views and all the comments, and communications from his followers and subscribers who have all come together to help inspire him to be a creative and dedicated woodworker helping to reciprocate his knowledge and ideas to the woodworking community.
