Gosforth Handyman

Wherever you are in the world, a very warm welcome to Gosforth Handyman! I’m Andy Mac and my aim is to give you as much information as possible to help you fend for yourself in the world of woodworking and slightly more advanced DIY. On this site you’ll find everything from product tests through to woodworking projects. There’s even some videos that might help you set up your own little workshop.

My aim is to pass on some of the tips and experience I’ve picked up over the years of making stuff and running businesses. Whether you’re an experienced trades person or just enjoy some weekend do-it-yourself, hopefully you’ll find this site useful, entertaining and perhaps it will even give you some inspiration to make something for yourself! For me, a break is always accompanied by a cup of coffee so put your feet up for 10 minutes, don’t forget to Subscribe to my YouTube thing and #drinkcoffeemakestuff

Links to Tools & Products I Use

I’m often asked what joinery, carpentry & woodworking tools are used in my videos so I’ve put together quite an extensive list to help you find some of them. These orders are all handled directly via Amazon / Ebay etc.:

Obviously some of the tools I use are old and you can’t buy them any more, so I’ve tried to find equivalent newer models where possible, or models I’d consider purchasing when my tools finally give up the ghost. Hope you find this useful!
