« Part 8: Jack Houweling Part 9 of Video Woodworkers I Watch series Part 10: Jerry Brown AKA Polly Wants a Crafter »

There are not many video woodworkers of the fairer sex. April Wilkerson is perhaps one of the foremost at the moment. I first found out about her from the Drunken Woodworker’s Weekly Woodworking Wrap-up Review.

April’s early videos are simply kinetic showcases for projects she built for her home, but at the urging of the video woodworking community she began making build videos, quite successfully. It’s amazing the ideas she comes up with for projects and the videos are informative and well done.

Her YouTube channel is [here]

April also maintains a blog where she posts detailed tutorials for her projects. Her earlier, non video projects are covered there as well. [April's Blog]

April’s awesome. I love how she shows her build process without too much “fluff” but still keeps the video interesting. My wife loves her projects too, which gives me more shop time when I try to duplicate them for her. (Or at least it will when my shop thaws out this spring…)

Her videos are well made and she has a great personality. I’m less a fan of the projects and construction methods.

I think I know what you mean. I’m more of a dado and rabbet fan, not so much pocket screws.
