Throw away all those here’s-how-it-must-be-done videos, and just make stuff.

This is the best response so far. I have seen some of Mr. Sellers videos or examples here and I agree with some of what he says, and sometimes I don’t agree with him. The thing is, nothing teaches you how to do something unless you are standing by the workbench doing it. Sure you might get some tips that save you time, or a different way to do things, but in the end we are not talking brain surgery here.

If you have all those videos, I don’t understand why you don’t have something you consider good. You are obviously not a beginner.
