no previous part Part 1 of Youtube videos: Another element to Woodworking series Part 2: What i have learned about Video View numbers »

So i recently began making videos and posting them on YouTube. I didn’t really have high hopes for the channel because i know very little about making content that people may actually want to watch. I also was concerned about shooting videos slowing down my production and causing more headache than it is worth. But none the less i began the video journey. To my surprise, i have found the added element of making videos to be a motivator. I am now constantly thinking up new and unique projects to record and post to YouTube. Shooting video adds another element to the build process and takes out a lot of the monotony that occurs in typical projects, especially projects that i have built 10 times before. There is still a lot i need to learn however. I am still not great at editing, marketing the channel, or getting the best possible shots. But this too has kept me motivated to get better and push myself in the shop.

Please take a look at my Channel and let me know what you think. Let me know what you like and don’t like, The video style is still forming and evolving.

I think it’s great! I just started making videos this year and the filming and editing is fun and challenging. Growing a channel is also very hard work I’m learning. One thing I have noticed is there is an audience for every style. Just have to find them! Cant wait to see more of your videos. I liked the jewelry hanger project.
