Best Woodworking YouTube Channels...
« 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 

Woodspezi

HOLZ und MEHR

ZwurlTech
 
The Woodgrafter

I also occasionally check back in with/refer to:

PP's New Brit Workshop

Stephan Pohnlein's channel

Paul Marcel's Half Inch Shy   

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.

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.

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).

Awesome suggestions everyone! Without a doubt though, the best YouTube channel
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.

Quick poll - How many of you just listen to the audio while on Youtube - why?

Lots of great channels already mentioned. Another I found recently is Bevelish Creations, fairly new channel.  Plenty of nice tools - uses some Festool stuff and all the usual suspects such as woodpeckers, incra, sawstop etc..
