I don t find the Woodsmith Shop PBS show or their website videos to be very useful. Their designs are often overdone, and even their shop projects are about twice as complicated (and twice as heavy, and twice as expensive) as they need to be.

I like Marc Spagnolo s videos, and I ve purchased guild projects from him before. They re very well done. Check out his free videos.

Jonah, interesting and true. But that is what I DO like about them. Quality, overbuilt, and more technical than necessary. If I was cranking out furniture there would be simpler designs to get the job done. But the craftsmanship and technics are what I care about. I like the project videos for the bits of information or techniques you can learn in them.

Marc’s stuff is great. Best overall resource IMO.
