I Like To Make Stuff

One of YouTube’s biggest DIY channels I Like To Make Stuff is all about…. making stuff. The aptly named channel run by Bob is very very easily to follow along with, the projects can be done by pretty much anyone. He works with all kind of technologies, from the old school like wood working to the new school 3d printers. If it can be made by people you’ll probably see it at some point on this channel.

Inspire To Make

Need some inspiration for your next project but prefer to just go about making it your own way? This channel is all about some good music, a cool project and some awesome cinematography. Watch and enjoy.

Brian Oltrogge

One for people who love diy metal work, leather work, 3d printing and casting. There isn’t much this man can’t prototype and make. Awesome channel

Darbin Orvar

Linn’s channel has a industrial focus to most of the projects and she doesn’t skimp on the quality, you wont find short cuts here that’s for sure. Her projects cover all kinds of different areas from small tool boxes like this to knives, lamps and even note books. You wont be wanting for a greater diversity of projects here.

Chris Salomone

Chris spits out some beautiful projects and is about as understated as the come. He narrates his work and gives loads of details all the way through, from the products to the methods you wont be wanting for much here.

Get hands dirty

Cristiana from portugal is an absolute gun at making things, she takes on a mixture of DIY projects, some tech, some wood work and some metal. This is a great channel for seeing some real innovations and awesome solutions to every day problems.

Home Made Modern

Projects for just about anyone of any skill level to jazz up your life. They always share all the details in plan form for the builds so you can follow along.


If you’re looking for insane levels of hand craftsmanship then look no further, his shop, his methods and his style capture the essence of working materials in an old fashion ‘hand crafted style’. Beautiful shop and beautiful work.

The Samurai Carpenter

While he mainly focuses on wood he occasionally does something in stone or metal like the project above. Very cool channel, great for getting ideas.


Here’s a man who’s a true artist with wood. He’s a professional woodworker and this channel is his outlet for personal projects. The difficulty is probably a bit beyond the average DIY’er but its amazing to see what can be done.

Shop built

Looking to up the quality of your shop and build a few projects along the way? Shop Built is filled with useful projects that will help you get organised and get working.

Peter Brown

From the description: “Just a geek with a full set of power tools! I do woodworking, wood turning or whatever piques my interest at the time. My hope is is to have one part woodworking and one part crazy. I ‘ll try my best to make something interesting. This is just for fun, please don’t do what I do in the shop.”

Matthias Wandel

Matthias is a meticulous wood working’ engineer’ whom builds just about anything out of wood. His channel focuses largely on tools and tool improvements but you’ll also find some pretty neat builds for stuff around the shop and home as well.

KingPost Timber Works

Joey is fairly apt at making some very complex pieces of furniture/art from scratch. Very friendly guy and good channel to learn a thing or two from.

Matthew Cremona

From harvesting to working to building this channel goes from tree to bench with all of the steps involved. You’ll probably find more information and neat tricks on this channel that any other when it comes to working with wood. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough for those looking to get into wood working.

Crafted Workshop

Johnny Brooke is a wood working mad mad who tackles just about every kind of project that has wood in it.  From full on cabinets to chopping boards you’re going to find something you enjoy here. Oh and the detail and film quality is superb.

The Rehab Life

No words are spoken in these videos, just a relaxing tune and some clear written instructions. The channel focuses on low cost and i’d say an industrial look, many of the projects turn out beautiful.

DIY Pete

Doors, Coffee tables, garden beds and so much more. Pete is a super friendly guy and gives out very clear and easy instructions to follow along with. Great channel.

Marius Hornberger

This channel is all about shop work and some of the awesome DIY projects that go on around them, you’ll find him improving machines and making little and big projects all the time. Great channel if you’re looking for ways to improve your workshop.

Modern Builds

Beautiful projects that you can follow along with, not only are the videos great watching but the build look stunning. He makes just about anything that goes in the home so you’ll find something for you.

DIY Creators

Hard to beat this channel, sick projects to help take your house to the next level and all the the cost of the materials you use (well and tools… but everyone needs those right). Glen always lists all the materials and tools used in the videos to make it just that little bit easier to follow along. The film quality is superb and it’s worth watching even if you don’ plan on doing it.

This old tony

Master of the CNC and lathe, Tony brings some very cool projects to life with an enlightening sense of humor, you’ll never quite be sure where the jokes will come in but they’ll get you when they do. Most of his projects focus on metal work but he’s been known to knock out the old wooden sword for his kid.


Keep your dick in a vice! A linguistic masterpiece of a human and one with some integrity at that. I mean just take a look at his description for a taste “This channel has awesome Patrons. We have no need, nor any inclination to do corpo shill vids. If you are thinking you’d like me to review your fantastic new banana peeler, I invite you to please fuck off.” So what does he do you ask? Well he ah teaches you how to discern crap from not crap and learns you a thing or two along that way about tools. Seriously though he shows you how tools work, some crap, some good and all with a dose of comedic joy.

Cottage Life DIY

Cottage life DIY is all about building those things that make living life a bit more fun, from floating hot tubs and saunas to mini golf courses on the water. Great entertainment and some really cool concepts.
