    I've watched his stuff for years and I really like his work. Other Favorites are Thomas Johnson Antique Furniture Restoration and Sampson Boat. Sampson Boat chronicles a stem to stern rebuilding of a 100+ year old sailboat. Some of the woodworking is above next level. It's really incredible.

    I will also put in a plug for YT channel "Alex." He is a frenchman in more or less a one car garage running a cooking channel, but his kitchen tools include a tap and die set, plus a circular saw and who knows what else. He is a total nutjob, but I would eat his food no problem.

    The main thing about this channel is the central tool in his shop is not a tablesaw or a joinery bench. The central tool in his shop (makerspace) is his brain.

    EDIT: For instance check this one out between 3:00 and 4:00. Whack job, but I would have dinner with him tomorrow night.

    Doucette and Wolfe do incredible work and are worth watching. The side and arm chairs video was especially good, imo.

    Not woodworking, but Baumgartner Restoration does incredible fine art restorations. Fascinating process and high production value.

    There is a BBC program called The Repair Shop with some episodes on Youtube > https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...+full+episodes <.

    It has also been on Netflix and Hulu.

    Of course, it isn't always about woodworking but it is interesting how so many things are restored.

    I love Alex’s YouTube channel. Definitely one of my favorites. His first videos were cringey, but he learned and improved. For some reason I find YouTube better for food than woodworking, although I enjoy both.

    I watched 1 and that was enough for me. I just dont like any videos where the person has an accent, only because of my hearing. I don'tunderstand wmhalf of what Alex is saying and it makes for annoying video.

    There are a few moments that caused some anxiety in this one. Overall I enjoyed it. I will watch it again with English turned on.

    Best Regards, Maurice

    It looks like a few Fire Fighting Companies still make and repair wooden ladders.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXSoaeHG6B0

    In San Francisco, because of the transportation system having a lot of overhead lines they use wood because it doesn't conduct electricity.

    I didn't know Los Angeles Fire Departments still uses wood ladders.

    I have a few clients and relatives who still have wooden ladders. I will go up them if I have no other choice. Thank goodness I can no longer lift the Douglas Fir double 20 foot extension. If the weight of that thing doesn't kill you the splinters or sinking feeling in the middle will. My former boss in Boston has a triple 24 foot Magnesium. I am the only person to have ever gone to the top of it. He was not paying me enough!

    Here is another, its a little long but has some interesting moments and highly skilled workers. The Chisel Ninja sitting on the floor is fun to see. He works on several of the many steps.

    Can't say what this means, but I've never heard of any of these YouTube influencers. Am I just too old, or you guys too young? I just go to my extensive library if I need inspiration.

    I still have and use my 6' wood step ladder, purchased in the '70s. In steady commercial use that whole time. Know as the 'ironwood' ladder on the jobsite. It's heavy.

    I wonder if your step ladder is actually made of Ironwood. We have small trees Dad calls Ironwood. The wood is very hard, very strong and very heavy. I have made tool handles out of those trees. Our timber surveyor calls those little trees Hornbeam or Musclewood. I have yet to figure out for sure what the scientific name is. It will be interesting to mill some of that wood.

    That's a great recommendation -- Lou did my favorite unboxing / review video on a power tool (Ryobi planer): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_a1HCqK5i-A
