My favourite channels
I like makers mostly

Dainer Made
Aussie pallet upcycler
You get that distinct Aussie humour and an almost pathological dedication to process - you need lots of pallets to make stuff.
I don't even like half the shit he makes, but I enjoy watching him do it


The Handyman
Cocksure American, which I can live with, cos he can DO ANYTHING
Good editor, good content
An amazing breadth of knowledge and almost flawless skillset.

Blacktail Studios
Maybe my favourite channel
The guy makes very high end furniture - mostly tables - from expensive wood and epoxy
I like his delivery and he has a dry sense of humour. He's good, but understands that every vocation is a learning process.
And he has a dedication to getting things right - like he'll spend 4 hours filling and sanding a flippin' table.
He's a very good content producer, good editor etc. And uses AMAZING tools like an artist.


Odell Complete Concrete
Some Texan guy that does driveways and walls. Mostly concrete walks and paths though.
He has a very enjoyable delivery. Almost lazy, but a lifetime's knowledge behind it.
I have watched him build this wall many times.


Shawn Woods of Mousetrap Monday
The guy is a hunter that tests every single mousetrap there is
He has a very laidback, homely/folksy style. But the passion shines through with his own added innovations and his clear love of what he does.

Releases native species, feeds invasive ones to wildlife.
One of those people that reminds you that country people probably have it figured out better than us city folks who are too far up our own holes most of the time to notice.




Ireland desperately needs a home improvement show.
Not that wankology with the architect and people with shit tons of money putting in all glass rear walls so they can be in the Irish Times Weekend magazine.

Someone on TV showing you how a pro fixes a toilet, or stops a door squeaking, or change a light fixture.

Sweet.
Have to do up a list. The amount of diy, gardening and restoration videos we have watched almost every evening the last 6 months is probably weeks of hours at this stage. And if I've learned anything it's that I need to buy more tools

RTE are obsessed with opulence, dermot cunting Bannon and €100k extensions.

OOOOOHHHHH
This motherfucker
Wristwatch Revival
Another example of something I would never ever do, but could watch this guy do it for an hour

Watches are bonkers. I would love a really good watch. This guy is an utter watch nerd. Just a hobbyist - it's not his job.
I cannot get enough of people with a quiet, dedicated (and infectious) passion

The aspiration to respectability is a curse. Particularly in Ireland and England, and particularly RTE.
Listen to Brendan O'Connor's Italian recipes at the weekend or Claire Byrnes upper middle class lifestyle shit.
These people can't even hear themselves and what spas they are (I like Brendan and Claire). But they expect half the country to pay for this kind of keep-up-with-the-Joneses shit.


Personable canadian woodworker and general all round delightfully nerdy dude

Great stuff
If you had the few quid, would you not build yourself a workshop like that and work in it forever, subsisting off of tea, biscuits and marmalade on toast?
Make cool little bits and pieces for loved ones and die happy.
