A DIY show unlike any other

In his garage workshop, artist and furniture maker Steve Butler creates a collection of clever woodworking objects — from a Swedish corner cabinet to a child’s paddle boat, perfect for the lake or pond. He strives to make each project accessible, both economically and technically, while emphasizing the fun and creativity of woodworking.
