You started woodworking in 2010 and already have your own school...impressive.






.
Actually there is no one in egypt teaches the worldwide techniques of woodworking
they only work with strange techniques from my way of thinking i see the techniques a little bit retarded .
there are no hobbyist woodworkers in egypt so my school helps the hobbyists .
and i consider myself quick learner and good teacher
thanks man for ur support

Looks like a well equipped shop. I like the looks of your pocket hole machine. For some reason I can't picture Egypt and lumber. So just what do you have to do for lumber?

Welcome Mohammed!

Nice shop and nice projects!

Don't worry about the mess. A clean shop is an idle shop :)

I don't do Facebook but I will be following you on YouTube.

Be sure to post lots of photos of your work.

Welcome from the state of New Hampshire. I always like contacting people from around the world so it will be interesting to read your posts. I am not implying you are different from me... but our backgrounds are. Even our British friends use different words to describe work methods (obvious things are measurements and tool terminology).

To make things easier for you to communicate... please try to include pictures of what you are trying to do when asking us questions. We have a saying - "a picture is worth a thousand words".

On your you tube you have a machine that put the angle holes in the board ends for the screws. I have a jig that does the same thing but with a step style drill bit and call them pocket holes. What do you call them? It sure looks a lot faster and easier then my pocket hole jig.

your intro... charming

Here's some tips, not about woodworking, however. :no:
Stop apologizing about the language, the grammar, not knowing the name, or word for things...just roll on and keep talking. We will get it eventually. :yes:

Don't move the camera so fast. Slow down everything and it will be easier to get what you are talking about. Just relax and be "charming" like an Egyptian.

Nice of you to give credit to "famous" woodworkers like Norm, Mathias, Marc etc.

We like photos of things, projects machines, jigs etc. The more photos the better and when filming video, stop and keep explaining what the camera is showing. Get someone else to operate the camera. It's too much for you to do by yourself, and you should make a "practice" video to see how it goes.

Good Luck to you with your work and with the You Tube Channel.:thumbsup:

I find it very interesting that you have a passion for woodworking which is so deep in your history. My wife is Egyptian she moved to the US in 2004. We got married in Egypt in 2011. I loved that the Egyptians invented dovetails, mortise an tenons, an ect.

I hope you make contacts with designers in your area. But I know the political situation is bad now. But hang in there work will come with the improvement of your skill. Good luck an my god bless you.
