I decided to start a series about the video woodworkers that I enjoy. The vast majority of them are on YouTube, because that’s what’s available to me. They are put up in no particular order, so there are really no favorites.
First up is Alain Vaillancourt, AKA the Woodpecker. I guess one of the things that attracted me to Alain’s channel was that he produces his woodworking videos in both English and French. He’s located somewhere in the Montreal area, but does take ‘vacations’ to a cabin somewhere near a lake. I think I like watching woodworkers who have some adversity in their hobby, whether it’s limited space, limited tools, or limited skill. Allain has been working in a windowless basement for many years and stores some of his tools and wood in his house. Perhaps it’s because I’m aware of language issues, but I find his accent in English interesting.

Last year he announced that he was going to build a nice semi-traditional post and beam workshop on his property. You can see the journey of his shop build on this playlist that I’ve created on my YouTube channel.
