Title: Best Woodworking YouTube Channels...
Post by: JPCleary on March 08, 2019, 08:32 PM
Similar to the PodCast question earlier, what woodworking YouTube channels do you follow?

Ooo, this is going to be a good thread!

I only recently started periodically revisiting a few channels. They are:

Weekendowy Stolarzyna (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtQ_c9b4GO4rYc97Svpsemg/videos) 

Woodspezi (https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCAw_WXM3TOmaWjW80d0ROHw)

HOLZ und MEHR (http://www.youtube.com/user/jgmueller2009/videos)

ZwurlTech (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl4uHyw3rRbK5YLDeYmCmeA)
 
The Woodgrafter (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7-37W8WFlJctvbNM6cwcTA/videos)

I also occasionally check back in with/refer to:

PP's New Brit Workshop (http://www.youtube.com/user/StoneMessage/videos)

Stephan Pohnlein's channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/pipolinoaustria/videos)

Paul Marcel's Half Inch Shy (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHqY4hrEdIAHj7d9P5M6PXA)   

Perceptive viewers will notice a certain bias in my choices. ;)

Not youtube for which I have had no subscriptions, but https://vimeo.com/channels/carlhansenson/43766099

A few years ago, I visited their showroom, but did not have enough time to also drop by their workshop which has been moved. I felt happy for them when I saw some customers there, finalizing their orders for the elegant high-end pieces.

Inspiring for the kind of furniture work I do.

Mike Farrington and Peter Millard go straight to the top of my list. Woodgrafter is all Festool and has taken the reigns of Paul Marcel. Mike's Woodshop is genuinely enjoyable but not as focused 100 percent on woodworking as he is a plumber with other tool reviews. He's a really nice guy. Obligatory Dave Stanton and Peter Parfitt.

"Dave here, how ARE you?"

Someone I recently found is Mitch Rudman from High Falls Furniture in Vermont.  http://www.youtube.com/user/hffcom.  I found his way of making tapered table legs to support a bottom shelf very simple and clever. 

There is Jay Bates, Shop Nation, Wood Whisperer, Tyler G from DIY Tyler, Matt Cremona and, if you live in CT like I do, Philipe Do Carmo.  There are so many more...

I think it depnds on your style and what you like making.  I find all these videos have something to teach and even if I pick up on tidbit of knowledge, I learned something.

Nice suggestions...definitely looking forward to checking some of those out!

So there was this young kid's channel I came across sometime in the last year but I can't remember his name to be able to search for it. It was very Festool focused and I remember he was working in a very small shop space.

I don't know if this is ringing a bell for anyone, but if you think you know who I'm talking about tell me who you're thinking of...

I think I know who you’re talking about.  I can’t think of his name off hand.  I remember a video he made of making an MFT top with his LR32 set.  Worked out of his basement in Europe somewhere if we are talking about the same person.

I have a bunch that I check on sporadically.  These are some of the ones I prefer.

Matt Cremona

April Wilkerson

The Poplar Shop (used be on the FOG soured on Festool and moved on). No new content really, but a lot of his stuff is good for reference, especially cabinet making within the Festool system

Jonathan Katz-Moses

Guy’s Woodshop

Bent’s Woodworking

Wood Whisperer

I had the pleasure of meeting Kriss (the guy in those videos) at a Festool Connect event a few years ago.  Brilliant mind and wonderful attitude.  He will be a success in any avenue he chooses.

He hasn't been real active here in a while and if you scroll down to the bottom of this thread he spells out why:

It was a high burn out occupation...the whole youtube video sensation in the past decade. Eric Mr Big Erock ended up disappointed and changing direction, but most likely in a way that was good for him personally. Paul Marcel seeks to join the circus. Dave Reinhold surfs. Kreg McMahon, will always be Kreg McMahon. Bryce does what Bryce is comfortable with at Bryce's pace.

The whole social media insanity of the past few years has kind of cycled through and I think it is cool that all of these guys kept track of who they were personally and professionally, and kept moving their own lives forward in spite of any feelings of online pressure.

Personally, I follow guys who are legit doing it all for a living, and because they love it. Guys like Tom Bader @tjbnwi. Thats where I learn the most.

is the one with my face plastered all over it - http://www.youtube.com/burnstools

I'm particularly proud of the 6+Hour live stream I hosted during our Open House Sale last December [blink]
People have been asking me about doing a podcast which is why I posted the topic.

I started watching Steve Johnson - Down to Earth Woodworks (http://www.youtube.com/user/downtoearthwoodworks) when I was looking to make an outfeed table for my SawStop.  I like that he takes the time to explain things, is well spoken, humble, and he has a lot of various series I've found value in.

Interesting fact, after contacting him with some questions, I discovered he lived only a mile away from me!!  He's given helpful suggestions in building my basement wood shop and is the one who introduced me to Festool.

I found jennieanddavis  ( jennie and davis)

I really liked them. They are not on the how to build stuff but more along running a wood working business lots of info on pricing , build quality, batching, getting finding and holding on customers etc.

they just moved to Tx its a entirely new area to them as they are from ND. So it will be interesting seeing how they are starting from scratch.

Oh a young cute couple to I might add.

If you are into metal working check out Alec Steele, just search for the name. Kid is barely 21 and makes the most insane stuff from metal and is so smart.  Has almost 2 million followers.  Highly recommend his channel.  Does a little woodworking.

Aye, This Old Tony is great, well edited and a funny guy.

I can't watch loud people for long and much prefer the chilled out ones with the easy delivery. 
Although Alec Steele is no doubt knowledgable, he still kind of gets on my nerves so I don't watch much of his stuff.

I liked Neil McKinley but it seems he's got sick of Youtube messing about so took a fair bit of his content away.

While researching the MFS I stumbled upon this prolific French YouTuber (in French with modest subtitles but lots of Festool-specific focus and, specifically, some unique jigs, genius workarounds and brilliant alternate uses for various Festool accessories):

...I mean, c'mon, how about the following for thinking outside the box (jig for holding guide rail at an angle in conjunction with OF1400)?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxJyiCgyTL8

...another good representative example (using two guide rails in parallel with rods to guide OF1400):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAEa6gftYjY

...and yet another good representative example (using MFS Routing Slide as an impromptu free floating table widener for OF1400):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvC6olwe2AM

...and one more representative example (simple dust collection workaround when using the MFS Routing Slide and MFS):

www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ4PkrJryLs&feature=youtu.be&t=62

...and, finally, one more representative example (using aluminium angle to improve clamping options in regards to the MFS):

Over the last few years, I have found most on this list are Thumbs up... 
I would also like to add a few of my faves to the "great ones" you have all posted.

Rex Krueger - Woodworking for humans series is excellent.  My favorite Youtube chanel.  Frequent vids and excellent communicator.
Next Level Carpentry - Matt has been a carpenter for decades and is sharing much of his workflow and "how to" for those of us who weren't carpenters for 40+ years.  Long videos and incredibly informative and good to watch.
A Glimpse Inside - Chris is very well presented and his work is solid and aligned to what my abilities are.
Third Coast Craftsman - excellent tool work and teaching.

I have hundreds subscribed but I find these along with Sellers, Ng, Farrington, Estlea and a few other are always the ones I look forward to and watch as soon as they come out.

Thanks

There’s many already mentioned..
To a more technical approach there’s Building Guru, who does technique, tool tips, use and reviews. I find him/them experienced with straightforward no nonsense advise.

Building Guru:

And Laura Kampf, who’s approach is more European/Scandinavian style, combined with practical ideas and engineering.

Laura Kamph:
http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRix1GJvSBNDpEFY561eSzw

AvE: Not very woodworking, but for those who like how ie drills and various «tools» looks  like inside, with massive mechanical learning in a very humorous way. Beware; he is not meant to be taken very seriously, but he has many good points in his “reviews”. Season that with “creative” vocabularies, “word wrenching” and a good portion of wisdom - and it becomes very entertaining with some learning  [big grin].

Tips From a Shipwright with Lou Sauzedde is a great YT channel about boatbuilding but you'll pick up some tips you can apply to anything. I've been watching for about a year now.

They are just starting their third series building a skiff.

This is the intro to the first series on building a work skiff. Second series covered building a sport dory.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C22Crc7XHoI&list=PLzlN3A2DLgNwE2RCpQ9vKCmeOwvKCRRjF


There are some additional episodes covering how he's adapted tools to accomplish specific tasks such as progressive bevel sawing on his monster Navy surplus Crescent shipsaw which is a tilting arbor bandsaw.

For me, the best woodworking YouTube instructional videos are like this: https://youtu.be/5-B1G49Lphg?t=3

To the point, no verbal fillers, no loud background music, and no clowning around.

I watched the video and the next suggested video was
KS60 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DtRczpyV6c)
First time I see a video of the KS 60, saddly it's NANA. To those that own one can you tell if it deliver the same accuracy aand clean cut then the KS 120?

Just catching up here. Terrific thread, especially appreciate when FOGgers post not just links, but descriptions of content and quality of video. Having looked up lots of stuff to solve specific problems, the great majority of people who post “fix-it” videos have abysmal video and audio quality, to the point of being unwatchable. So I really appreciate semi-pro or better technical quality, among whom I would include Dave Stanton and Peter Parfitt.
While I appreciate humor, more straightforward demonstrations of processes ranks highest. I would put Festool’s Brent Shiveley near the top for that.

I think I’m going to check out some of the German and French YT videos to brush up on my language skills (of a half century ago!).

Woodro LeeHyun.
Exceptional craftsmanship and design not to mention an incredible overhead router machine.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RgkJc9BfRQ

What I like about Woodro LeeHyun, Ishitani Furniture, Kobeomsuk etc. that it's all about the craft. Their tools are not "inconspicuous" product placement, they don't do "tool reviews", showcase the latest Woodpeckers gimmicks, or interrupt videos trying to sell you stuff - something that sadly has become a defining feature of US based youtubers.

Along the same lines,

JennsMistake (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwP3-YxYpWeeeo7_-MUyj5Q/videos) - not production house like the above (technically new hobbyist), but thoroughness and research of proper techniques with cheap tools is edu-taining to watch.  Been using a few dominos of late without a domino.

ViTTEN (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRBbCjUgtS7QOGxkD0c89yg) - small custom cabinet/built-in shop.  Usually works with plywood/valchromat.

SQUARE RULE Furniture (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJkUhZ4Zlk6HTmeV-M4q06g) - Similar to Kobeomsuk.  Solid wood furniture, joinery, etc.

WOOD DESIGN (http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxIu58e9tuENg3EWgQFTfnw) - No talking.  Just laminated furniture.

What no Diresta love

Jimmy Diresta is a Maker, not a Woodworker. : )

I subscribe to over 500 YT-channels (yeah, I know…), most of those are woodworking or at least mostly woodworking.
The ones I enjoy most (which to me is a matter of enjoyment and learning stuff) are Ishitani, Adrian Preda, Andy Rawls, Dorian Bracht, Lemongrasspicker, Boris Beaulant, Frank Howarth, Get Hands Dirty, GuysWoodshop, Jackman Works, KingPost, Marius Hornberger, Mike Farrington, hffcom, Kobeomsuk, Mr. Chickadee, Olivier Verdier, Pask Makes, Seoulboy, Shaun Boyd and The Samurai Carpenter.
I did not mention channels that release less often or have ceased to release video's (there are a lot of these, some of them worth watching).
mr chickadee 🐥 is good. Diresta had his cat 🐈 ripping lumber 🪵 on his table saw. lol there’s also chris salomone, I met him Pre-Covid on an Rockler event in Torrance. He’s a good guy, not the same level as the top dogs, but still holds his own. He makes good concise videos and the vids are interesting...

Seeing that I only know or recognize the names of a handful of YouTubers mentioned in this thread (I can count almost all of them in one hand) made me feel relieved. In fact, among the handful, only Thomas Johnson Antique Furniture Restoration is bookmarked (which I check once every month or two months, about how often he produces a video).

I indeed spend more time on woodworking than watching woodworking! [tongue] [tongue] [big grin] [big grin]

A lot of great links so far.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned Tom McLaughlin's channel (http://www.youtube.com/c/Epicwoodworking/videos).  Some of the content is project-oriented, others are more q&a or technique sections.  You get a very good sense of who he is from these videos.

This 10-year-old video isn't a full channel of content, but still worth watching: Making a Jarvi Bench (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3utt2Y5aH0&feature=player_embedded#at=89).
Title: Re: Best Woodworking YouTube Channels...
Post by: ChuckM on November 15, 2020, 01:13 PM
Tom M. is even better than Tommy Mac on those Rough Cut videos. However, I avoid Tom M.'s own production because it is too long for me, and he takes too much time to get to the point (which is common among YouTubers). Of course, to be fair, his own production doesn't enjoy the kind of professional scripting and video-editing as he did with the Rough Cut. Other woodworkers, of course, may find his length just right or even not long enough!

The Sampson Boat Company. Leo is rebuilding a 110 year old English pilot cutter and his skills are just something else. He does joinery on a large scale which is just amazing to watch and is at least as good as the Japanese temple builders.
