We upload every Saturday a new video because consistency is very important for the YouTube algorithm. Actually I believe consistency is in general life very important, not only in YouTube :)...I didn`t expect so quick answer, it has been a lovely morning coffee chat with you...Cheers, Anna-Liisa

Hello Anna-Liisa,

I'm glad you enjoyed the video link I shared. He is a talented person for sure.

On that note, if I may suggest, really go over your video for content accuracy!!

There is a big difference between "style" and actual "good practice" in craft. In this case woodworking. I would not recommend the methods and approaches at all shown in the video you just shared. It is a good example...once again...of "too much"...in the way of people just "brain dumping" their videos out on You-tube. From a technical stand point he has some expensive tools, he has some wood, and he went through the motions of building (???) something that was just about pointless to build, and with a some pretty dead end methods.

1. If you don't know the wood you are working with...You shouldn't be using it. That is basic common sense. Now folk think it's o.k. to mix and match grain and species with out any real regard for anything...At least that is the impression the video leaves me with.

2. He employed expansion and contraction joinery modalities, for what purpose??? It sure doesn't seem like he knew why and just did it because he either saw someone else do it or thinks the joinery looks cool. All the effort to make it then put in together incorrectly!! Expansion joinery is meant for the wood to be able to move over time...not be screwed, glued and frozen in place.

So, on that note, I could not even give it a grade for woodworking, as it fails completely and could only give it a score on video content...Which is barely average at best...C-...maybe??

Well that's my 2˘ on it all anyway... I will check out your next installment on Saturday...

Regards,

j

Hi Anna-Lisa,

You're welcome.

My information is not very useful to people who post links like you, and there is not much that you can do with it as a person who creates content on the web.

VirusTotal is a tool for everyone else. They want to click on a link, but they do not know whether to trust it or not. That includes the YouTube links that you post. People may want to click on your links, but they don't know whether to trust you or your links.

The VirusTotal website lets people verify links and files. VirusTotal does not give you an absolute guarantee that your computer won't be infected if you click on a link or open a file, but it greatly improves your chances of keeping your computer clean from malware and infections.

Regarding Anna-Lisa's video: I watched it, and was impressed with the video production quality. Making quality videos is where Anna-Lisa shines. They have style and tell the story well.

I wish I could say the same about the woodworking content in Anna-Lisa's video. To be fair and honest, it is a very basic project. The future portends similar basic projects. As others have pointed out, the internet is saturated with these basic project videos. Anna-Lisa needs to focus on finding a woodworking niche that is distinct, unique, and helpful. With no malice or insult intended: Right now, all I see is "Me too."

I welcome Anna-Lisa's efforts and wish her well. She wants to produce woodworking videos, and Woodworking Talk is the right venue to announce that, regardless of motive. She has a lot of work ahead of her if she wants to succeed and earn some money as a YouTube video producer. Others have pointed out how many similar videos are already on the internet, and Anna-Lisa's videos must compete with them for viewers.

I hope Anna-Lisa's videos evolve into something unique and special on the internet. In my opinion, they have great production values, but the content needs to change in order to find the right audience.

Thanks for this constructive message. I have to admit I agree with you. These are our first four projects, the content is indeed rather simple. We have very tight budget, so this is the reason we decided to take small and simple projects as a start. To get used to filming and working as a production team. So far we have filmed 10 videos and published four videos and the next video we are editing has finally the quality of filming we are expecting. We are learning every day! The next project we have is still very simple but a video after that has some interesting problems we solved for us, hopefully someone will find it also valuable.
I also believe that the forums like this one here, are a good place to collect valuable info and opinions.

I have started a very difficult journey and I am very thankful for every competent comment.
With that all being said I hope you guys (I assume you are all guys, correct me if I`m wrong, please) will not mind if I`ll post here more videos. So those who want to take a part of our evaluation process can do it.

Hey!

Thank you for this critique! I will let Hannes read it.
Actually it`s a she, Laura Kampf, I think you were talking about her video.
I like Lauras style, she is very inspiring woodworker but she`s also quite young, she can still learn about wood :)
Her goal is probably to entertain and inspire and entertain which she manages to do very well. I definitely wouldn`t want to copy her but find our own way.
