Just wondering if anyone has any youtube channels that are good for tutorials? It's been a long time since I've touched any woodwork at all, but I feel like I need a refresher over the basics, i.e your mortis and tenon and dovetail joints.
Somewhere to start off and work my way up.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! See most helpful response
The Bunnings Warehouse Youtube channel is my first choice for excellent step-by-step D.I.Y. tutorials, though I might be a little biased!
In regards to Youtube channels which delve into details on various timber jointing methods, I'll leave that up to the community as I'm sure they have plenty of favourites.
As a suggestion have a look at this you may have a laugh as well
My god,that's a lot of videos. I'm sure there's some stuff in there.
Looks like he also makes some pasta in the workshop too...
I like Dave Stanton some basic stuff and some advanced.
flowershow guy shows a now retired furniture and glass restorer as part of his stream not basic and they are from New Zealand.
Twitter is probably where I follow the most people who make some ******** amazing stuff that makes my fitting a dog door today look tame, we also have long standing jokes around certain people, I feel privileged to be able to interact with them.
Dave looks like he has some good stuff, real basic. I'm after a refresher on the stuff I would have learnt 25 years ago back in high school.
And the Steve bloke with the Masterclass looks like he used to do stuff for Channel 31 but that closed and he's kept it running in his shed on youtube which is great to see. I'll look into these for a bit!
Steve was on 31 for about 12 months don’t know why he was taken off. l do like how he has simplified a few things. As for the other person haven’t looked at his stuff as of yet.
There's a chap in the UK that has a great web site and demonstrates good use of hand tool. I’ll chase it up and put the link up.
Just found my bookmark a fellow woodworker put me onto Paul Sellers, he is good. Plenty of good tutorials.
It looks like Channel 31 was taken off air at the end of 2016. It was a self-funded network. But looks like he's still going strong on youtube with a decent following and making a bit of coin with subscriptions. I imagine given he's running the show he can change the format to how he likes it. I've watched a live stream and an ep so far. I just need to not fall asleep on the couch while watching.
Paul Sellers videos look good too, I'll add them in the subscription.
Some that have educated, entertained and inspired me:
The wood whisperer
Izzy Swan (He likes jigs. I like jigs.)
Stumpy Nubs (how cool is that name?)
For top level craftsmanship, look up "William Ng Woodworking"
I hope some of these can educate, entertain and inspire you. Happy woodworking!
