When I sit back and dream of all things woodworking this image is what I see. Credit to Nick Offerman’s Woodshop (If you haven’t checked it out you should. Very cool dude!!!):http://photos.vanityfair.com/2015/06/08/55761c49ca2dc24e4d26559d_nick-offerman-woodshop-ss19.jpg But my reality is:https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xft1/v/t1.0-9/11949487_1033562810009910_9120745669717242544_n.jpg?oh=7b17151b4d884f3db85bee18bfe24d00&oe=56A9E967 I’m sure you can see a...
Peter's YouTube Channel Peter's Website I don’t remember when I first found Peter Brown’s videos, but they’re usually interesting. Even though he doesn’t always use wood, he is always using woodworking machinery. I think he buys his supply of epoxy in 50 gallon drums. He likes it even more than Norm Abram! Probably his worst mistake was turning objects from rock salt.
I forgot how I found him, but Stan Sullivan is another one of those video woodworkers that I watch. His narrative is clear and the sound quality in his videos is very good. Admittedly his woodworking is straight forward, but he uses some interesting techniques to get things done. The statement from his YouTube channel reads: ‘Fancy workshop with expensive tools. Not here. Just a garage, basic tools and a belief that Doing it yourself brings confidence and a sense of satisfaction...
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...
Linn 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. Linn 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. Linn’s main YouTube channel, named for her dog, D...
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]
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.
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...
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...
Hello fellow woodworkers. My name is Mario. I am from the beautiful twin island nation of Trinidad and Tobago http://discovertnt.com. I am new to the art of woodworking. I have no formal training. My tools are limited but I am working on expanding my collection. I look forward to the opportunities to learn from the experiences of everyone in this community. In the words of Steve Ramsey; “there are no mistakes in woodworking only skill building opportunities.I have always admired those with th...
