Perfect solution for Newbies, Weekend Warriors or Experienced Woodworkers!

Hello Fellow Woodworker
You will be surprised to know that this damaged VHS tape from 2003 and this disappointed angry woman, were actually indispensable in helping me develop a one-of-a-kind woodworking system, that not only rescued my woodworking dreams from rotting away, but made woodworking one of the most rewarding pastimes of my life. How?
I will fill you in on the details shortly, but if you keep reading, you will soon discover how by using this same novel system you too can...
I strongly encourage you to read this page to the end, so you do not miss any of the juicy details.
Now, even though I am sure that you may have a strong passion for Woodworking, the reality is that most of us woodworkers have embarked on woodworking projects that have ended in frustration or failure and sometimes even in disaster. And if that has happened to you, it's not because of a lack of effort on your part!
The good news is that there are really only a handful of issues that may be holding you back from realizing your full potential, and producing the amazing, high-quality results that you deserve for your efforts.
The most important issue is one that may surprise you!
Hello, my name is Crispin Thomas, Creator and Owner of Sawdust-Addict.com, but I was not always this pumped up about woodworking.
As a matter of fact, even though I loved the dream of woodworking, I almost ditched this rewarding pastime out of sheer frustration, because my results were so demoralizing, and my years of determination yielded not much more than just, sawdust!
Even though I worked for many years as an Engineer in a small TV station, I was always captivated by the idea of transforming rough lumber into beautiful furniture or other functional items. However, probably like you, time was always in short supply and my workspace was never big enough!
My Worst Woodworking Nightmare
Allow me to share with you a quick story about one of my early attempts at woodworking that almost ended up ruining my marriage!
This was around 2003, my wife and I were married for about 10 years and we needed to replace the vanity in the bedroom. Of course, my wife wanted to just go out and purchase one, but I volunteered to build one!
After all, how difficult could that be!
Now while I had tried to build small items in wood before, this was going to be an item that would be used every day and should have been a kind of show piece, something we could both be proud about!
It goes without saying, she was very skeptical about my woodworking talents, and did not like the idea one bit. But I insisted.
So, I looked up some plans online, and came up with a design that I liked. I got the materials together and set aside a weekend for my grand project and got started.
The results were... well it was just terrible!
I remember saying to myself “What was I thinking?”
I had made some really poor choices in materials, and I realize now looking back, that my joinery techniques were still at “infancy” stage.
As you can imagine, this led to some, let’s call them “disputes” with my wife, and for a long time afterwards, she did not let me forget how much time and money we wasted on that experiment...
...and of course, my confidence in my own woodworking abilities was at rock bottom!
So you see, I was allot like you, or actually I was worse off than you, but it was this very experience, this journey through all the embarrassment and pain, that led me to discover the number one problem that we all face as woodworkers...
... and it may surprise you!
It was this frustrating journey that led me to discover and perfect a system that allowed me to conquer my low woodworking self-esteem and approach all my woodworking projects with confidence.
I am sure you too will have the same results, but without going through the pain and embarrassment I had to endure.
And it all started the day I realized that the main problem that we face as woodworkers isn’t what we think it is...
The fact is that we have been led to believe a lie! But How?
Norm was an extraordinary teacher.
When building a project, he would give the most comprehensive treatment to each project, including the history, the thinking behind its use… the art and the science of the piece.
He would explain in detail why he chose the materials he did, the type of joinery he used, material preparation, assembly, and final finishing.
In order to fit Norm into my schedule, I would set my VHS VCR to record the 30-minute episodes when I was not at home, and watch them over and over during my spare time during the week.
The impact on my woodworking was nothing short of revolutionary! Without even realizing it, Norm became my virtual trainer and mentor!
Almost overnight, I finally started having results I could be proud of. Even my wife would jokingly accuse me of secretly buying expensive furniture and pretending to build it myself! 😊
So what had changed?
What had changed, is that I was now following a methodical step by step system, instead of my lame haphazard approach from before. It sounds so simple but it’s the honest truth.
For example, if I started working on something but did not plan properly, it was extremely frustrating to have to stop to leave and go to the hardware store, because I forgot to pick up a simple but important item, like the proper length of screws or a drill-bit or something like that.
And when you are a weekend warrior and short on time, it’s the worse feeling to have squandered an extra hour or more that you could have spent on your woodworking project, on something that was totally unnecessary.
So the lie, was not a deliberate “conspiracy”, but the truth is that you do not need to have the latest and greatest tools and the most tricked out workshop to get amazing results. And simply having woodworking plans or watching YouTube videos alone is just not enough.
Free plans cannot give you all the details and they just assume that you already have all the skills you need.
In the case of YouTube videos, there simply isn’t enough time to show you everything you need to know in a short video that compresses days of work into just a few minutes!
As a result, your projects will never give you the joy and satisfaction you worked so hard to achieve.
What we all need is a consistent and reliable coach and mentor rooting for and guiding us, even if it’s not someone standing next to us!
The good news is that once you recognize the truth, you open yourself to the real solution. That way you can regain your confidence and the respect of those around you who really matter.
Everything was going well for me until this happened!
So, with my VCR now broken, it was clear that I would need a much more bullet proof system, that was more reliable and comprehensive than just my growing collection of VHS tapes, to sustain the momentum I now had...
Something that I could even share with other woodworkers like us, and that would put the latest online technology to work for us.
For example, let me share with you just 3 simple but powerful tips that that I discovered along the way.
Don’t be a Hero, Get a Helping Hand.
What do I mean by that? Well, even though you and I thoroughly enjoy working alone on most aspects of our woodworking projects, there are times when fatigue and other factors can rob you of your joy.
If you do find yourself in a frustrated situation where you are single handedly performing all sorts of woodworking tasks ranging from lifting heavy lumber to cutting and sanding, getting a partner or a workshop jig to help with some tasks is the sensible and safe thing to do.
Finally, and this is the most important step because if you do not do this, then the other tips we have covered so far will not work well.
This is your absolute need for accountability and for a proven system that you can rely on.
One that has taken all the hard work off your plate, taken all the doubt and questions and lack of confidence all out of the way, giving you a step-by-step blueprint to take you from where you are to exactly where you want to go, and then further.
So literally after years of development and marrying my woodworking and professional skills, this is what I want to share with you now.

I'm naturally curious and a tinkerer by nature, I also have dabbled and played with wood for a few years, but never felt that I had the skills necessary to handle pieces that could be displayed. I don't have a lot of woodworking tools just a mixture of some basic power and hand tools. I have worked at learning how to use them for basic operations, but I am always looking to improve my skill set.
I found the Woodworkers treasure chest site to be easy to navigate and the information available very useful to someone such as myself. For example, I found the calculator converting metric to English units easy to use and it makes laying out a project that has metric units very easy to do. In addition, the most valuable tool to me are the tutorials and the search function it has. You can very quickly find useful information on tool usage, joints, glues, jigs to make repetitive cuts or cutting wood joints easier and even on finishing techniques. The plans that are available to use can be downloaded or printed, are easy to follow, have good instructions and well dimensioned, and, if nothing else the plans can give you ideas on how they can be modified to meet your own ideas.
If you, like me, are willing to work at improving your skill using the tools given, then I think the Woodworkers Treasure Chest can only help as I'm still learning every day as My wife is constantly coming up with projects for me.
This is an outstanding service for the small cost involved. I would recommend it to any woodworker or woodworker want to be...
I retired from education in June of 2017. I needed an outlet for myself to remain active and productive. I have always enjoyed woodworking and have tried my hand at various projects. Most have been workable but not very good.
I have expanded my projects to some much better finished projects. Wood projects just tend to of a better quality that what are purchased at the store.
Since I live in a subdivision governed by a homeowners association. They have some very strict regulations in regard to the design and construction. This is making the shed a challenging project to meet the guidelines while keeping the cost at a level I can afford.
This Treasure Chest is providing me wind the tools to plan and put a workable plan together. Thanks for including me in this elite group.
Hi, from Down Under. Thank-you Crispin for inviting me to join. I live in Port Huon, Tasmania, Australia. I retired here from Alice Springs.
I'm a supervisor at the local Men's Shed(call the Dog House) in Geeveston. I enjoy making thinks with my hands.
Since being down here, I've gotten into wood, in a big way. I like small thinks: jogs, a folding table, jigsaw, hat rack, coast rack(for home), hand doors for friends; I'll put together some pics to post on a couple of days.
The Woodworkers Treasure Chest is bound to be a valuable asset for me. One of my quirks is, I do my project in sketchup before I touch any timber! It gives me time to look at it, modify before starting.
From what I've looked at so far this is quite impressive. I intent to continue using the Woodworkers Treasure Chest well into the future.
Because I want to give access to Woodworkers Treasure Chest to more woodworkers like you, for a limited time, I have also discounted it even further, as I didn’t want the price to be a barrier to you taking action today.

And if you think about it, this is a tiny price to pay to save yourself so much more in terms of your wasted time and effort, disappointing results and ruined materials!
