If you're interested in seeing some inspirational, how-to, or just plain informative videos about woodworking, then I strongly suggest you go to http://woodtreks.com. The site describes itself as:

“Woodtreks” are video journeys for woodworkers, wood artists, and collectors of fine wood crafts, art, and furniture. Be inspired, learn how-to, and discover master artisans & their work.


The first thing you'll, notice in the site is the professional-grade production quality videos that Keith Cruickshank has put together. Luckily, it's not just the filming quality though that'll draw you in. The content of the pieces are top-notch. He interviews fascinating people like furniture maker Craig Vandall Stevens and many more.

In fact, I would go on a limb to say that that there nothing close on television or cable that provides such a deep and rich experience for today's woodworker. Please let me know if you think otherwise, I'd love to see what else comes close. Don't get me wrong, there's plenty of great video blogs out there too -- but I haven't seen one that has the breadth with various artisans and craftsmen profiled.

The site went live in June 2008 and has posted many videos shortly thereafter. It's currently on a small break as Keith relocates his shop. Let him know how much you like his work -- it'll help ensure we all get more great videos to watch in the future!
