How Do You Like Your Woodworking Videos?
Poll - June 2, 2016
The world of online woodworking has changed a great deal in the last decade. I recall in the first episode of The Wood Whisperer where I stated one of my primary reasons for starting an online video series: because there just weren’t any options for woodworking education and entertainment at the time. That couldn’t be further from the truth today! People from all over the world are now sharing their woodworking through online video. From the brand new hobbyists to highly skilled and experienced professionals, all kinds of craftspeople are making content for the masses to enjoy.
Along with the variety of people comes and equally variable selection of editing styles. Some videos are incredibly fast-paced with no instruction. At best they inspire you without taking up much of your time. At worst they leave you feeling like you just got off a roller coaster and didn’t learn a thing. Some videos are incredibly slow and detailed. At best they teach you intricate details you need to know to become a better woodworker. At worst they bore the heck out of you and waste your time.
So what’s your preference?
