Video Woodworkers I Watch #16: Jay Bates

04-17-2015 11:35 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Jay Bates is another one of those people who knows how to build something. I don’t recall how I originally found him, but his habit of using recycled materials sure doesn’t hurt in the realm of why I watch his videos. He’s also known for a series of videos he made about using Sketchup. (I’ll likely be accessing those since a recent computer crash left me without AutoCAD. It was an old version and likely won’t work on my Windows 8 machine.) Jays current vi...

Video Woodworkers I Watch #15: Lynn Orvar (Darbin Orvar)

04-07-2015 11:47 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

Lynn Orvar has a unique way of doing woodworking. Her shop looks like it was decorated by Martha Stewart and she always adds a flair to her projects. Lynn first came to my attention through a mention by Steve Ramsey who in turn heard of her from the old Weekly Woodworking Wrap-up Review by the Drunken Woodworker. Some of her projects my be termed craft projects, but anyone who hand cuts joinery deserves to be termed a woodworker. Lynn’s main YouTube channel, named for her dog, A...

Video Woodworkers I Watch #14: Andrea Arzensek

03-02-2015 09:02 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Andrea is located in Mexico, but is originally from Croatia. He works with limited tools on his projects, but he has a good imagination and his videos are pretty well produced. Definitely worth a watch. A few of his videos are available in Spanish as well as English. His YouTube channel is here: [link]

Video Woodworkers I Watch #12: Chad Stanton AKA The big Chopperoo

02-09-2015 06:13 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Chad Stanton is a bit off the wall and is the only video woodworker I know of who has a safety sidekick in his videos. Despite his unique approach, his videos do contain many how to helpers to those of us lacking experience in the hobby. His YouTube channel is here. [link] Recently Chad put up a video on the Popular Woodworking channel, but I’m not sure if it was a onetime gig or something that will be recurring.

Video Woodworkers I Watch #9: April Wilkerson

01-09-2015 01:27 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

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 a...

Video Woodworkers I Watch #1: Alain Vaillancourt AKA The Woodpecker

11-06-2014 06:34 PM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

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 doe...

Help out a new woodworker

03-08-2014 01:27 AM by mptap | 10 comments »

Hello to all lumberjocks! As the title says, I am pretty new to woodworking. I have a lot of questions about techniques, tools, and ideas for projects. It seems as one question gets answered another one peaks my interest. Right now I am interested in getting and learning how to use hand tools for joinery, planing, and the like. I don’t have a planer or really any good hand tools yet (I borrow my grandfather’s tools, but even his are limited in the hand tool department). My firs...

When a woodworker wants to make applesauce...

10-20-2013 05:20 PM by CueballRosendaul | 7 comments »

My neighbor had an apple tree loaded with fruit so I decided to make applesauce and can it for the winter. Since I don’t have one of those crank apple peelers, I decided to make my own power peeler with the drill and a spade bit. I clamped the cordless drill down to the counter, and used a spade bit to hold the apples. I went through this full bag of apples in about 45 minutes. Watch the YouTube Video!
