25 of the best YouTube channels for woodworking
I got into woodworking a couple of years ago and probably like a lot of you, I started with watching YouTube videos as my entry way into the hobby. I worked heavy construction back in the day, so I have decent tool skills, but never really worked in a shop or had access to skilled teachers (unless you count 7th & 8th grade shop class 50 year ago)! So, I started watching a lot of YouTube and found out very quickly that it takes A LOT of video watching to find something that’s useful. Especially if you have a specific project in mind or are trying to learn something specific.
I know most of the folks creating videos on the platform are really trying to be helpful, and might provide a trick or two, but it can be a challenge finding the right people to watch and trust. So, I thought I’d share a list I created of the most followed woodworking pros along with some of ones I’ve found that show and share some key skills and the ones I follow for expert advice:
Top YouTube Channels dedicated to Woodworking I like
|I like to Make Stuff||Make Something||
|Jimmy Diresta||Ana White||Frank Howarth||John Malecki|
|Mathias Wandel||Leah Bolden of See Jane Drill||Woodwork web||Scott Brown Carpentry|

There’s a wide variety of styles, types of projects or furniture they work on, design ideas, and how they offer advice, so even with this list it takes a lot of watching. I even put in a couple of Epoxy Resin providers that I used on a couple of my furniture update projects, and honestly I just like their colorful videos.
