    You selected some great channels to highlight. I would add 731 Woodworks and Wood Working for Mere Mortals to my list. I started my own channel after watching others like you did and hope to inspire someone someday. Thanks again for the video and I am now subscribed.

    Hi there. I’m just starting on Woodworking with not a lot more powertools than a track saw and router. I’ve watched a lot of those woodworkers already and I came across this video. I heard your from holland, so am I (de groeten ;)), and it made me wonder; Do you know more dutch woodworkers here on the YouTubes?

    thank you for posting this list. i always love reccommendations from similarly minded people that introduce me to different and trusted channels. although i certainly have a different list, i always enjoy finding new inspirational people. if anyone is interested i have a couple that i would like to reccommend as well. here are some additional channels that inspire me. i am not listing these in any sort of ranking system. so in no specific order…. 1 -his work is seemingly flawless, has a great teaching style. beyond that his PHP charity for combat and ptsd wounded vets totallly inspires me especially as a disabled person myself. 2 hand tool and somewhat ‘rustic’ approach is unintimidating and inviting to new woodworkers, not to mention his sense of humor, the fact that he responds to and respects his subscriberss and the excellent community of woodworkers that share on facebook and during weekly live streams. 3 paul sellers. of course, paul sellers. he has something for everyone from the fresh beginner that is looking for an inexpensive way to start woodworking to the seasoned vet looking for tips and inspiration. 4 worththefort. again as with paul sellers he has something for every skill level, branches out into woodturning as well and his wonderfully instructive, deep dive long form videos dont seem to leave out a thing. and finally 5 im cheating a little by listing these two together but stavros gakos and young je are two amazing hand plane craftsmen that consistantly amaze, inspire and leave me with a sense of awe after watching them craft their beautiful hand planes and other woodworking tools. i hope you dont mind me piggybacking on your video but you ‘inspired me’ as well.
    again thank you for posting, i will definately check out the two channels i wasnt aware of, and check out your channel in the meantime!
