I am an avid watcher of YouTube videos, but I don't hop around for channel to channel, I tend to get hooked on one channel and watch all their videos multiple time until I find an other channel to obsess over. 

Well, for the past few weeks I have been enthralled by Jimmy Diresta’s channel. He is a New York City based crafts man, who can make just about anything with his hands. In his shop he makes table, lamps, dog houses, bells, tools, signs, and anything else you can think of.

As some one who loves knowing how things are made of put together, his videos are addictive. Now I know roughly how to reupholster a chair, or make a stool, with the help of the right tools. Watching his videos has actually inspired me to try my hand at making some furniture in my own shop.

I absolutely love his work, so I thought I share some of my favorites.

This was the first video I ever watched of his, and I was hooked from the start. The fact that he speeds up his videos makes it seem so much more interesting for me, especially be cause I have little patience, and because to get to see the pieces finished. The sounds in his videos remind me of my own shop, and my childhood. As a kid I lived on the construction site of our house while it was being built and I could always hear the sounds of work being done, it’s a strangely comforting sound to me.
