The Judge

Paul Jackman

Paul Jackman, aka Jackman Works. Is an artist, woodworker, and video creator located in coastal Massachusetts and most known for his nearly 400,000 subscriber YouTube channel Jackman Works, social media content, and, more recently, as "The Engineer" on the Netflix show Making Fun.

He can make anything, but he's probably most well known for high-end reclaimed projects (often from pallet wood), oversized recreations of everyday objects, and satirical and irreverent build videos to go along with these creations. His fast-paced videos are meant for anyone, but he especially hopes to inspire a younger generation to use their hands and just start making stuff.


The Prizes

Incredible prizes that even the most discerning power carver will enjoy, not only a comprehensive kit but it also includes the new Arbortech Power Carving Unit and so much more!

Getting Started with Power Carving

Power carving is a type of wood carving that uses power tools to remove wood more quickly and efficiently than traditional hand carving methods. Power carvers use various tools, including rotary die grinders, reciprocating saws, angle grinders, and sanding tools.

Power carving has several advantages over hand carving. First, it is much faster. Power carvers can remove large amounts of wood, which is ideal for large projects or for creating rough cuts. Second, power carving is less physically demanding than hand carving. Power tools do most of the work, so carvers can focus on guiding the tool and creating the desired shape. Third, power carving is more gratifying to those with low patience levels. We know because some of us are that way too.
