I don’t really know where to put this so I guess it goes under skill as I am looking to increase my skills. Does anyone have any woodworking shows they watch on Amazon, NetFlix or Youtube?

Lot’s of good ones on YouTube. Many woodworkers began watching New Yankee Workshop on PBS in late 80’s and “reruns” can be found on YouTube. Also, are you more interested in hand tool work or power tool work?

A quick list I like that are more instructional are Wood Whisperer, Rob Cosman, Matt Cromonia (sp???), and Paul Sellers. If you start watching any of those, YouTube will suggest others. There are many more that are more entertainment or idea generating.

+1 on hotbyte’s list. I’ll add Dave Marks to the list. His series on DIY network called Woodworks is full of valuable tips. Even if the project doesn’t look like something you want to build, there are likely techniques that make it worth watching.

If you’re into turning, you can also check out Mike Waldt, especially if you have any interest/curiosity around off-center turnings.

YouTube is the place. Too many to list. Just plug in a few search terms, and they will take you there.

WoodWorking for Mere Mortals is OK, but I’d really suggest….........”MicroJig, maker of the Gripper”

I’m surprised there have been no posts from LJers plugging their own channels.

Charles, I know it can be frustrating — on the very rare occasion when I’m positive I’m right — to be drowned out by noise. So, I can only imagine how annoying it must be for a real subject matter expert such as yourself.

It’s a shame I didn’t discover this place earlier.

I’d recommend John Heisz of iBuildit.ca. The style he now uses makes me feel that I’m hanging out in his shop while he talks about his projects and builds them. A no nonesense kinda guy.
