You may have saw from the projects I finished a small simple project.
Looking for feedback on the video I did of the project. What do you guys think of the over all video?

I will be trying to add better angles and more motion around the woodworking instead of flat cinematography with a stationary camer.

But everything will pregress in time.

I hope you like the style, it may be a bit boring to some.

Yep, turn the lights on, and talk, very boring without commentary.

really? no one is gonna go longer than 30 seconds and turn your video off.just look at some of the videos from guys that make there living doing it and take note of how they light and do commentary.youve got a long way to go but its a start.

Too long, 45 minutes for a boardlike thatis too much, the project is fine, light could be brighter as others mentioned, but I wasn’t willing to spend 45 minutes watching you hand plane and rasp a paddle.
I was using the ‘scrubbing’ feature to scroll through to watch it come together in about 2 minutes

‘Shoes,
Go back to my comments in your original post. Read it again. Do it.

While your content is very cool, it’s a majorly long video! Now, if sped it up about 5X, we’d get to the point. Which is how you took a piece of very nice wood and ended up with a very nice piece of craftsmanship. Sure! I obviously love that kind of stuff! Consider the average human attention span is 7 minutes-ish. 45 minutes is off the charts for what I’m assuming is a demo, a glimpse into how it’s done. Hence, editing… Try for 5 minutes.. And TALK to the viewer or hire a string quartet!! I could discuss the finer points, but I don’t want to bore anybody.

That being said, Hey man, nice work! that Charcuterie Board is sweet!

I agree with the lighting needs to be improved. watching many videos over the years I note as the people making them gain experience the learn to short cut the process buy not showing simple things like drawing every line the make and sometimes not every cut. I also noticed you used a track saw to crosscut a board that was less than a foot wide, can’t help but wonder if that the only tool you have that could make that cut? Most woodworkers would use a chop saw, circular saw or radial arm saw.
All said and done it’s far better than any video I’ve ever made since my video count is at Zero.:)
I say if you enjoy making videos keep on doing so , as time goes by you will learn how to make them as you go, just like woodworking.

That was the only thing I have running that would cut it in half, I could not find my hand saw, so that was the easiest route
