If you’re a fan of woodworking you’ve probably heard of Jason Hibbs, but did you know his net worth is a tad over a million dollars. This makes him the richest self-taught woodworker on the planet. He and his wife Cara are the proud owners of a well-appointed home in Portland, Oregon. Their latest purchase was a lawnmower made of metal and plastic, but you’ll never guess what it’s called. They also have a young son named Iver, but that’s another story.
To get a glimpse into Jason and Cara’s life check out their YouTube page. You may also wish to follow them on Instagram. While you’re at it, you’ll be happy to find out that Jason is a tinkerer at heart. Besides building some pretty sweet furniture, he also dabbles in carpentry. The most impressive thing is that he’s not only a jack of all trades, he’s a tinkerer to boot. Taking the time to craft your own masterpiece is a worthwhile feat, but figuring out the best tools and materials to use is the key to a lifetime of woodworking enjoyment.
One of the coolest things you’ll see in Jason’s garage is his tool box. You can even watch his machining process in action. He’s not afraid to let you in on his secrets.
