YouTube has a growing number of DIY, woodworking, and maker channels. To me there are two that set the bar and those are Jimmy Diresta and Frank Howarth. Frank's stop motion presentations are extremely entertaining and his camera work is amazing. Both of those guys are wonderfully creative and inspiring.

Oh, first the sweet girl from Portugal and now this guy!

Hat off and respect, looking forward to spend hours checking his videos.

His videos are very cool. One has to wonder where he finds the time to do all his projects document them and put together the videos while having two young kids.

If any of you have a "machinist bent", whatever you do, don't start watching any ABOM79 videos on Youtube.

There's a whole Youtube community of machinists - Abom79, Tom Lipton, Keith Fenner, Keith Rucker, Outside Screwball, This Old Tony, and others. You can quickly fall down the rabbit hole trying to watch all their videos.

But if any one IS working in the next few weeks it might be dead so you really should have some rabbit holes to go watch and keep you out of trouble. If you like timber framing check out mr chickadee. It's a nice change of pace from diresta noisy vids.

I was hooked when I saw his video of the self assembling table saw. Brilliant.

I haven't watched any of his videos yet, but it sounds like I'll be losing a bit of time in the future.

I've been through all of Shannon's videos at House Improvements, somewhat related.

Nobody even realizes that Frank has a serious stutter at times. It must come / go or he is also editing the shit out of the audio.
There are always people with negative comments, regardless of the subject matter. It's sad but that's one of the unfortunate side effects of the anonymity of the internet and the degradation of a thing called manners.

Regarding the buried shop, I don't blame him one bit and his concept is genius. It wouldn't work well for me given that I need to pull vehicles into a shop, but if I were building a dedicated woodworking shop, it wouldn't be an issue. From his architectural perspective, having a massive outbuilding like many people build in the form of monstrous pole buildings, towering behind a MCM ranch (assuming it's a single story home, it seems most MCM houses are) would be undesirable and honestly, an eyesore. I think the design of his shop, both in form and function, is a thing of beauty. Those long vertical windows and the band of polycarbonate are gorgeous. I think a possible improvement in design would have been to sink a third entrance at the rear to floor level, then dig out an entry and build short block walls to create an apron outside the entrance. It would alleviate a lot of the difficulty he has getting things in and out of his shop. But it doesn't really seem to bother him. I'm also beyond jealous of his Clear Vue Cyclone... I've been lusting after one for a long time now and don't see myself freeing up the funds for one anytime soon. Also barely requiring a mention is my lust for all his machinery... so much quality and heft to everything he has.

Regarding his videos, they are simply a breath of fresh air at the end of my usual stressful day at work. The past few nights I have spent the last hour before bed watching some of his videos (most recently his kitchen remodel series) and the lighthearted way he approaches things is very calming and entertaining. I really appreciate that he shows and mentions his mistakes. It seems that a lot of the content on the internet, whether a video or blog/build thread, usually puts the best foot forward of every project. There's nothing wrong with that, but we all know mistakes are made but we never see them. With an honest style like Frank's, you don't feel as bad when you inevitably screw up in your own projects, knowing you're not alone.

If 'The Ornament and the Tree' doesn't put you in the Christmas spirit, nothing will.

Great find, Ryan, and Merry Christmas, gang!
