This video is about how I made money, and advice I have given others on how to make money doing woodworking. I am centering the video around a project build because that will make it more interesting. It also happens to be a very important project for making money. I actually paid much of my way through college by doing woodworking, and I have also helped many others do the same.
The build itself is a new style of Adirondack Chair that I designed myself. It is very comfortable since it consists of compound curves for the back and seat. Yet even with these curves it is quite easy to build. I have also designed the set of plans to allow the end maker to use any lumber from ¾” thick to big box store lumber that is 1-1/2” thick, and regardless of lumber thickness, it does not affect the plan or dimensions at all.
This is a very detailed build video, and much of it will be focused on perfecting the details of a salable piece. And some advice that can hopefully improve your woodworking if you are a beginner.
Things I used in this build:
I used a Festool sander, but that’s certainly not necessary, I also use my DeWalt frequently

Woodworking From Plans
I love working with wood and when working with wood I have I always preferred working from plans. I advise that you always work from plans, either by making your own plans or by purchasing premade plans. I now predominantly design my own plans but when I first started I found it easier to purchase woodworking plans.Begin a New Hobby With Simple Woodworking Projects
