It would be easy to say that Denis Rezendes is NOT your typical teenager. But I think there are a lot of young woodworkers out there, and it’s time we started giving teens like Denis some credit. He’s posted his first instructional video at Lumberjocks.com and I really enjoyed it.
It is so basic, at a little over 12 minutes long, yet it is packed with good information for the young woodworker. As someone who has spent a few hours in front of the camera doing podcasts, I can tell you it can be nerve-racking. Only someone who is comfortable with the subject matter can be comfortable in front of the camera. Denis looks like he knows his stuff — either that or he’s a natural.
If your teenager is interested in woodworking, steer him to this video first. Then buy him a couple of tools!
