YouTube woodworkers: Adam Collins


15-year-old Adam Collins, from Ireland, has been woodworking for just a few years and I continue to find inspiration from his ingenuity and enthusiasm. His projects demonstrate just what can be accomplished with very few resources and a lot of imagination.

Definitely check out his homemade table saw, and router table below. Other videos you will want to watch are his homemade hand plane and workbench made with just hand tools.

I look forward to every new video Adam posts. Please add his channel to your YouTube feed and take a moment to leave him a comment if you like what he’s doing. I can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for the future.


  1. Good job Adam! Reminds me of when I was 15 and made a “mini” and I mean “mini” lathe with a Black and Decker drill and a vise. Oh did I mention their was no variable speed and no keyless chuck. LOL

  2. I enjoyed viewing both of your post about the table saw and router table especially that router lift. I’m thinking that over for my router. Your videos were of good quality however you need to speak up a lot louder; I could hardly hear you talking. Keep up the good work.

  3. A very Clever young man and a fellow country man. Steve well done in hi-lighting this young man he has many bright ideas, it is people like these that we need to encourage. Adam ‘keep her lit bro’
