High quality woodworking videos?
March 26, 2012 3:56 PM   Subscribe

Please recommend me more high quality woodworking video content!

Now that I've taken up woodworking as a serious hobby, I am looking for high quality online video content to show me anything and everything about woodworking, especially as it relates to proper tool handling, safety techniques, tips and tricks, and start-to-finish furniture builds.

I have already seen the following:

- Marc Spagnuolo, The Wood Whisperer
- PBS' American Woodshop streaming episodes online
- PBS' The Woodwrights Shop

Please share your woodworking video content with me!

Sometimes instructables has good YouTube links to their projects. ( sorry about that first comment )

Thanks for the comments Mr. Metaphor. Are there any particular instructables that you recommend?

Of course : The New Yankee Workshop. They're streaming a different episode each week, and then it's gone. A bit annoying but it's pretty much the grandaddy of all woodworking shows and covers a lot of the basics of operating machinery and making things. I'd skip past the 'finishing' portion of a lot of them and look to the wood whisperer or read up online for a more modern approach to that area.

woodgears.ca!

It is my favorite special place to nerd out about woodworking.

Some of the print magazines now have nice video sections on their websites (may be behind a paywall depending on site):
Fine Woodworking
Wood
Popular Woodworking
Woodsmith
