This month, woodworkers from around the globe are participating in the now-annual 2×4 Challenge, as organised by Brian Gidney at Summers Woodworking. You’ve probably heard of this or something similar; the brief is to make something using one single length of 4x2in softwood, 8ft long. Entries are beginning to filter through, with the deadline now only a fortnight away. While I’m unable to participate myself this year, I would like to instead share the following video:
Before going too far, the woman’s name is Linn and not Darbin, which is actually the name of her dog and also her business. Her channel is one I’ve only very recently begun to follow after YouTube recommended it to me under their What to Watch page. I’d like to help to raise awareness of her channel because even though some of her videos are less-wood related, it’s distinct that she holds a great skill within the world of working with wood.
If I filter through the seemingly-endless list of channels I’m subscribed to, there are very few of whom I would declare ‘professional’ woodworkers. Please don’t get me wrong. There are some incredibly talented people out there, sharing their content without an asking price. Beside the obvious ones, there just doesn’t seem to be as many professionals sharing their wares and I look forward to seeing Linn’s channel develop.
At some point, I’ll expect you’ll also be able to visit Brian’s website and see a complete list of all video entries to the 2×4 contest. Best of luck to everyone who is taking part and thanks for reading!
