« Part 3: Dominic Bender Part 4 of Video Woodworkers I Watch series Part 5: Frank Howarth »

I believe I first found John's channel on YouTube while looking for videos about clamps. At the time he had just made a pretty decent bar clamp and a superb hand screw clamp. His projects aren’t so much furniture as jigs, shop made tools and clever experiments involving woodworking and some metalwork. I like John’s no nonsense attitude to the grief he’s received from the YouTube trolls. He’s a fountain of information on thinking a process through and doing things in a fairly efficient manner. He also maintains a blog that has many projects for which no video was shot and with more information than you’d believe.

Agree, his YouTube videos are worth watching.

I agree. I’m having fun watching his belt sander build.

He’s definitely come a long way in his video skills, but even his early stuff is quite watchable.

Been watching John for a long time now. Before retiring from carpentry, he was a super busy fellow between his job, woodworking videos, house remodel + videos, blog, sketchup plans, plus some other side activities he would occasionally mention. I honestly have no idea how he found the time.

John started an internet forum for people who enjoy making things, wood, metal, electronics, whatever.

I’ll definitely have to check that out. I don’t know how John finds time to do all these things.
