Steve Ramsey shares woodworking projects that are ideal for beginners and those who do not have the money to set up their own workshop, “Aside from a few inexpensive tools […] all you need to be a woodworker is the desire to explore your creativity and make some fun projects.” In this video Steve creates a razor holder created through bending wood:

    Hi Art, thanks for sharing your favourites with us. We wanted to do a quick round up of our top 5 but you’ve picked some good ones yourself! Frank Howarth’s channel in particular is great as he puts so much work into the production of the videos as well as the woodwork projects.
