How time flies!

It’s been a great couple of years filming and sharing my woodworking on YouTube. But as you can imagine there’s always one more joint to film, one more project to complete, one more…..

I know a lot of my subscribers on YouTube are Lumberjacks, so a big thank you for your support.

I’m no techno whiz, but I am slowly getting the hang of social media and with that comes a new freedom to reach more woodworkers. I’m hoping to start posting regularly here – remind me if I forget!

If you make your own tools at all, you might like to check out #TOOLMake15, which I’m running on YouTube until the end of July.

Mitch has come a long way since his first couple of you tube videos, (as awkward as the initially were… Sorry Mitch) I’m definitely not a “Hand Tool” guy but I still watch and enjoy Mitch’s videos as he does an excellent job teaching many of the different techniques and applications of hand tool use. Even for us Power Tool jocks there always comes a time when the only way to get the project completed is with the use of a hand tool. So why not bother to learn the right way and give Mitch’s channels a looksee.

Here are a couple of Mitch’s channels that I regularly watch:

Cheers Scott,

Awkward is the word! I still cringe when I review them.

I must say it’s been really nice to get so much positive feedback about the content over the years. If my delivery has improved then that’s a bonus!

I watched your hand plane restoration video and used many of your techniques to restore my first 7 hand planes. the other 9 are sitting on a bench waiting for some attention. Just want to say thank you for some insights on how to do it better.

My Best,
BurlyBob

Hi Mitch, what do you use to film and edit your films.

BurlyBob Thanks for that. It’s always nice to hear of someone who’s managed to sit through that epic! I want to redo the topic, now that I’ve had some experience in filming and editing. All the best, Mitch

Eddie, I use a Sony HDR-PJ10 camcorder to film. It’s been really good. I’ve shot a huge amount of footage over the last two years and it’s never let me down.
Editing has been a pain, and I’ve tried many over the two years. I can’t afford to splash out on a semi-pro package, which might be where I’ve been going wrong in the past! Currently though, I’m using Sony Movie Studio, which is a little limited on functionality, but seems to be reliable, which is what I’m most interested in.
Cheers, Mitch
