  1. Hi William,

    First of all, I think you are an amazing person and an amazing woodworker! I absolutely love all your videos, your demeanor, and the way you explain what you are working on. All your jigs and everything you make is perfect. I normally don’t comment on videos and nor do I generally subscribe, but you are so fantastic that I feel compelled to do so. I love your instructional videos, so please keep them coming!!

    1. Thank You for taking the time to write me. I really appreciate that. It’s people like you that making these videos are worth my efforts. Thanks again.

  2. Hi William, I’m another fan. I have read through a ton of comments on your videos and I agree with every compliment. I have three things to add: First, it seems that the name William is rather formal for your personality. I wondered why you didn’t use “Bill”, but when I said “Bill Ng” aloud, it sounded like a department, not a name. “Will Ng” sounds almost desperate. OK, I get it. Second, You shouldn’t feel too badly for those of us who have to change saw blades and set-ups as we work. We think of it as foreplay. Third, I’m in the second or third tier skill group watching your videos. I don’t have your equipment or space, but I know you could step into my shop and produce excellent work. So what I take from your videos is a clear idea of the goals. I then try to imagine what you would do in my shop with my tools (after you threw up). I am doing better work because of your videos and I thank you for your grace and illumination.

    1. HaHaHaHaHaHa!! You are a really funny guy. I should hire you to write my jokes. Thanks for taking the time to write me. I truly appreciate it and it motivates me to make more videos because all the effort I put in, is worth it knowing it helps others. Thanks again. Happy woodworking

      1. Thanks for your efforts in making your instructional videos. Being a hobbyist I was thrust into a project which called for a his and her vanity with a 5 drawer chest between them. I did the 7 drawers using your methods and your crosscut jig which everyone comments on how good they look. Never could have tackled it without that jig and the techniques you taught.

  3. I guess all the compliments you get William are getting to be old hat, but I’ll go ahead anyway & add my 2 cents worth. You do incredible stuff & your explanation, camera angles, etc. are great. I can’t believe that anyone has ever posted/ commented negatively about anything you’ve done, so ignore that crap. PLS stay motivated to keep producing this high quality material – I have watched 100s of videos & yours are definitely some of the very best. Thank you for your obvious dedication to the happiness of us mere woodworking/ hobbyist mortals. I’m a 20 yr woodworking enthusiast who can accomplish almost anything if able to use a good set of step by step instructions & plans but am not good at design/ imagination/ functionality, etc. You, on the other hand, have tremendous ability to create project ideas, jigs to make those plans work, etc. – could you sell that part of your cerebral hemisphere? It would be worth a lot to me. I’ve recently built 2 great projects (a bed that looks like a Tiki hut with thatched roof & lights, etc. plus a sandbox), using the Festool Domino XL DF 700& their domino/ connector system – both turned out amazingly well & very solid, without a nail or a screw to be found. My granddaughter took pictures to her daycare & I’ve already got orders for 3 sets – lol. Always looking forward to anything new from you.
