Do you mean the epoxy king? He's capable of a lot more but getting stuck in whats popular for views.

The engaging and enterprising Leo, from Sampson Boat Works, uploads 20 mins of woodworking (and more) every other Saturday. It's a great channel to start from the beginning if you have an hour or six sometime.

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.



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 - 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 - small custom cabinet/built-in shop.  Usually works with plywood/valchromat.

SQUARE RULE Furniture - Similar to Kobeomsuk.  Solid wood furniture, joinery, etc.

WOOD DESIGN - 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.  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.

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!

Wow, a almost 2 hour video making a cross cutting sled, must be something special.

I can’t remember the guys name, but he’s an elder Chinese man who works with just a few tools and makes interesting stuff. It’s more folklore woodworking, then ishitani style.

Just found (recommended to me by a english mate) a NZ carpenter. pletty good stuff different that what Im used to.

Scott Brown Carpentry has his own you tube channel.

Another good one is freebird carpentry English guy lots of good info on his channel to

When I started renovations and then getting into woodworking I didnt understand a lot of the american terms as a NZ'er (Kiwi) it was quite refreshing as  he would explain teh equivalent terms.
He's getting quite a following now

I have seen and enjoyed most of these, some for quite a while.
Toolify and The Poplar Shop both had different channel names a couple of years ago.
AvE is fantastic, not woodworking, but tool reviews. He does make references to "dead tree carcases" occasionally....lol
One I didn't see on the list was Bourbon Moth woodworking. He's a bit kookie, but entertaining.
