About Me

Hi there! My name is Andy MacLellan and I make stuff …mostly out of wood. I also love making YouTube videos and hopefully they’ll help and inspire you to make your own stuff. I’ve made things with wood since I was about 8 years old. My dad was an auto-electrician so I was always hanging about in his workshop ‘helping’. He gave me bits of wood and sharp tools to shut me up to be honest. This fascination with making stuff has stood by me for my whole life. From Lego though to model making and RC. I always had the attitude of “If I can’t afford it I’ll just make it!”.

I’ve done a lot of different stuff in an attempt to grow up, from working in IT through to teaching drums (music is another passion of mine). Probably the one constant in my life, apart from my wonderful family, music and coffee, has been making stuff. I’m now fortunate enough to run a busy little joinery business in the North East of the UK. My YouTube channel is there to provide a little light entertainment for makers around the world.

As I’ve been self employed for most of my life I’ve also got a sister YouTube channel called Andy Mac Drums – this has very little to do with drums and is more about self employment and small business tips… and a bit about drums… but not much. That’s because I’ve got another channel and web site called Beginner Drums which is much more geared around drums. So if any of those things float your boat please check them out!

In case you haven’t realised by now, this web site is for the Gosforth Handyman YouTube channel. If you want to book me for actual work please visit my business page, Gosforth Bespoke Joinery Ltd.
