Question Asked:

I really like the regular popular guys like Steve Ramsey, John Heisz and Third Coast Craftsman, oh and that guy who makes the expensive kitchen counters and tables out of huge, expensive tree sections, I can't remember his channel name.

But I was really looking for someone who makes interesting things using more traditional tools. There is quite a lot of workshop one-upmanship on youtube. Who can afford the most expensive machines. I mean really how much skill do you need to push a piece of wood through a $10k industrial planer. My mother could do that!

I know there is skill in knowing how to use the tool and planning and organizing your work. But I kind of would like to watch someone who does everything with their hands. A huge table saw is all very expensive and impressive, but cutting a straight line by hand to me, takes real skill. It must have been amazing to watch craftsman from a bygone era create some of the beautiful antique furniture you see. And then for it to stand the test of time. Created all with hand tools. That really is some amazing skill. Beautiful inlays, done so accurately. It's mind-boggling really.

I really love that youtube channel with that European guy, I think his name is Uri Tuchman. He does everything by hand and the results are mind-blowing, what a clever fellow.

Would be amazing to find a woodworking channel that is similar to his were everything is done by hand. Have you ever tried to cut a dovetail joint by hand, without a jig, a machine, a router, a guide?

And the dove tail joints you see on old furniture are perfect, amazing. Now-a-days feels a bit like cheating, to be honest.

Anyway, let me know your favorite woodworking youtube channels. I will always support any youtube channel that is putting out good content. I actually have a tv in my workshop and just put these channels on for background noise, whilst i'm tinkering.

Thanks folks.
