Andy MacLellan

The channel was set up by Andy MacLellan in 2016. Andy has always had a passion for making things. His dad was an auto-electrician so he was always hanging about in his workshop ‘helping’. This fascination with making stuff has stood by him for his whole life. From Lego though to model making and eventually commercial woodworking, he’s always had the attitude of “If I can’t afford it I’ll just make it!”.

Andy has done a lot of different stuff in an attempt to grow up. He originally qualified as a recording studio engineer but ended up working in IT for almost 17 years. Music is another passion and he used to teach the drums part-time. The one constant, apart from his wonderful family, music and coffee, has been making stuff. Life is now dedicated to helping others learn through the videos and articles this and his various other websites.

Check out some of Andy’s other channels such as the Small Business Toolbox and the Measuring Up Podcast – the UK’s first commercial woodworking podcast.

Remember pretty much everything in a workshop can kill you. Stay safe and take care folks!
