I like Peter Parfit, Mat Estlea and Manor wood and Peter Millard.
All are helpful in there advice, down to earth, and appreciate we don't all have mega sized workshops .

I feel like I'm back in school when I watch Paul Sellers, which is nice.

Peter Millard for practical advice, and great presentation style.

My favourite channel isnt British (unfortunately :D )

My favourite British one would have to be Peter Millard's. Chris Tribe is also good (I'm a bit ashamed to say I've have only recently discovered his channel).

All channels mentioned here are worth a look.
Like most things on YT they are for the beginner or intermediate level woodworker.
Also there is quite a lot of overlap among them.
I enjoyed watching a few episodes of the Hands series on YT.
In general, I find documentaries of people making a living by plying their trade more interesting, than what the YT content creators churn out.

edited: Just remembered, there's this Scottish fellow, a joiner/ cabinetmaker...Gary I think his name is... Worth having a look.

All of the above, but I'd like to chuck a curve ball in and say Ben Crowe from Crimson Guitars too.
Very specific type of wood working I'll admit but still worth a watch.

I am subscribed to Manor Wood, but i do find myself cringing a bit sometimes, particularly when his lovely Felder bandsaw gets abused (the bearings spark like crazy!) as if he doesn't really have a clue what he's doing!? But he has some seriously nice (very expensive) machinery!!

I like also the series "hands". Quite old but still very interesting.

Not British but Canadian are "doucette and Wolfe". They are making fine furniture and the videos are really nice to watch (though they stopped posting a while ago)

I also like Paul Sellers (I'm a subscriber on his website). He can have some very strong opinions and be a bit irritating at times, but most of my woodworking knowledge comes from him.

(Not woodworking related but still worth watching : clickspring. His work and videos are top notch)

I used to watch as I'm into building guitars too, he's a very likeable chap but he just talks too much!

"Todays video, how to dress your frets" - 10 mins talking, 5 mins trying to sell tools, 5 mins mucking about.... 20 seconds actually working on a guitar ;-)

If you're into Luthier 'tubers, may I recommend Highline Guitars on youtube, he's very good.

Peter Millard, quite like Stumpy Nubs from over the pond.

He's quite honest and down to earth about things - not to everyone's taste though.

My first Rob Cosman video - I saw his travelling tool cabinet. Every nook and cranny used. Very clever design. Really liked it.... but then the expensive tools name dropping began and that's all I think of with him now.

A few overseas 'tubers I like...

King's fine woodworking - makes a lot of really nice table saw sleds - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm8CRH ... MemitETdbA

Matthew Cremona - https://www.youtube.com/user/mcremona/videos

Nick Ferry - https://www.youtube.com/user/ferrynick/videos

Make Something - good work but the odd annoying advert - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtayke ... o2BsPm-rsw

Worth the effort - not everyone's cup of tea, unusual style but I like him - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxOSP6 ... DWfNHqHCgA
