Through the time I’ve been a member of Lumberjocks (maybe a year, though I’ve been a woodworker over 55 years), there have been several threads talking about YouTube channels. I absolutely do not want to denigrate or bash anyone taking the time to put videos up, but rather, start a thread listing those that seem to me, to offer value. I’m not mentioning specific videos, but rather the names of the presenters.

Here I go:

Stumpy Nubs
Rex Krueger
Wood by Wright
WoodworkWeb/Colin Knecht

If you really want to feel inadequate, Wolfe and Doucette.

Guys Woodshop
Kingpost
Kings Finewoodworking.

Get a Fine Woodworking membership you can get lost in the video library and watch some real masters at work.

Oof – yeah, D&W is just humbling.

Ishitani Furniture is one of my favorites – inspirational without being as loftily unattainable as W&D.

I really appreciate channels that aren’t overtly/intentionally instructional and have minimal distractions from talking/commentary and/or music.

Youtube channels are funny. Some I absolutely cannot stand, even the persons voice can be like nails on a Chalkboard, some I can tolerate, some the intro bugs me so much I just avoid, some I enjoy most/all facets, Some i like at first but then they become sellout advertisements and then i cannot stand at all. I do like ;

Although there’s not been much new content, I enjoyed Tom Fidgen’s Unplugged Woodworker series a few years back.

For a humorous lean, I like Fisher’s Shop.

Check out John Malecki on Youtube. He used to play for the Steelers, but has retired and built himself a woodworking gold mine. Awesome projects from epoxy pours to fine woodworking. Really entertaining channel too.

Rob Cosman is good for instructional videos.

An interesting one I enjoy is Andy Rawls. He will do videos with zero commentary or talking. Just him working wood. It’s sort of an ASMR thing I guess, but he does nice work.

The art of Craftsmanship is probably one of my favorite but he does things other than just woodworking

wrangler star is another good one but his material has changed a lot in the last year or so.

Ann of all trades is always nice to watch and has a calming presence.

The samurai carpenter has done some really impressive things. I don’t like some of the design but he does great quality

Me chickadee is amazing to watch as well.

I try to watch the ones that are family friendly so I don’t have to worry about having them on with my kids around and these all do a good job.

A friend of mine started up a channel called wrench benders but he’s a gear head not a wood worker although his brother built a really cool little pull behind camper

Not adding any YouTube suggestions, except a personal memo to all: if you are at all suspicious, in the least amount, about the safety of anything, think three times before you attempt it!

Seems there are now several YouTube videos (different presenters) touting turning on a tablesaw! Not only would I question the safety of this, but the sideways loading on the blade might just lessen the life of the arbor bearings! This morning, on (of all places) “This Old House”, had one of the present project house carpenters, free hand ripping a board on a tablesaw, without a fence, and with another pulling the board on through. You want a formula for a kickback, that’s it.
