So what crafting shows/videos can you watch over and over? Ones that are not just calming but make you say "Damn I wish I could do that."
I've always liked New Yankee Workshop but recently found this one on Youtube.

Ford is currently trying to get funding for a set of books on the subject.

Ford's incredibly talented but him and his entire forum have their heads up their asses

Some of that guys work is shoddy. You can tell hes not a real cabinet maker. Probably came up from carpentry instead. Also more of a jack of all trades, master of none kind of guy. Thats fine and all that. Nothing wrong with it and some of his non-woodworking stuff looks impressive. I can't say that any of his cabinetry work looks "nice" though. All I see when I look at his stuff is cheap wood, exposed end grain, sloppy joints, things being our of square and brads, brads, brads. His "Rolling Tool Chest" video made me want to slap him. Hes definitely from the Norm Abrams school of cabinetry, he just doesn't put in as much effort as Norm does. If Roy Underhill was dead he'd be spinning in his grave.

same. seems like he's not even thinking about what he's making sometimes, just cutting shit up until it looks like something.
even still, a shitload of his cuts are fucking terrible.
like why he even uploaded this to show to the world is beyond me:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqZOx1Wl1SQ&list=TLOovxLxp0mLl3pQXlxsj5suuvtTOXRD8A

the fact that he finished the video like it was a job well done brings roars of lols.

The pointless slow-mo is really annoying me.
In any case, it's not very pretty, but it's a bench.

I sometimes think people go out looking for things to have about other people.

His videos are pretty well edited and his projects are also interesting for the most part and you may be able to learn something about tools (primarily Festool). His humor is a bit hit or miss, but still he’s entertaining to watch

Locally, there's this public channel called Create TV that has a good number of DIY shows touching on various subjects. Most of the time is just cooking though.

Same.
Just watching someone work entirely by hand gets me moist like a kfc towelette.

I always got shit from my teachers and students when I was in highschool for doing most of my stone sculptures by hand rather than power tools.
Its so easy to fuck up with power tools.
That tactile sensation of carefully peeling away nanometers at a time of stone feels fucking fantastic.
