Top 5 YouTube Makers

If you, too, prefer YouTube over the ol' TV after a long day at work,  but you're looking for something a bit more engaging than "Funny Baby Compilation #3" (one of my daughter's favorite), I present to you a list of my top 5 favorite YouTube Makers:

(A "Maker" is someone who creates things. Usually out of wood or electronics, but not exclusively.)  

 

Colin Furze (4,255,268 subs as of 2/16/2017)
This channel is the home of crazy inventions, brilliant world records and constant disregard to health and safety. I guarantee you will not be disappointed with the videos uploaded as there some of the best and most original on the net and it is TV shows that copy me not the other way round. Thanks and hope you have enjoyed the ride.

Are you a "Do IT Your Self" kind of person? Or maybe a woodworker/maker? Welcome! Here you will find everything from money saving tips, woodworking projects, jigs and completely wild contraptions. I have been building and designing since I was old enough to swing a hammer. With a mind for out of the box thinking and an unusual mix of art full design and engineering interest, you never know whats going to happen next. with a brand new posting scheduled - Money Saving - Mondays, Tool Talk and Tip - Wednesdays, and Freestyle - Fridays. Come Hangout! It's a fun Ride!

 

The Ben Heck Show (558,926 subs as of 2/16/2017)
Join master hacker, engineer, and tech hobbyist Ben Heck as he tackles new and fun interesting projects each week. Whether he's combining a PS3, Wii U, and Xbox into one mega video game system or building his own pinball machine, Ben shows you step by step how you can take on all kinds of electronic projects. Ben also shares useful tips and answers your questions about 3D printing, microcontrollers, circuitry, modeling, design, and much more. What should Ben build next? Let us know!

 

I Like To Make Stuff (1,102,224 subs as of 2/16/2017)
I like to make all sorts of stuff, with all sorts of materials. I have lots of projects including woodworking, metalworking, electronics, 3D printing, prop making and more! These videos are my attempt at teaching, inspiring and empowering others to make the stuff that they want to have. Hopefully you'll see something here that will inspire you to make something that you're passionate about!

Someday I hope to make someone else's Maker list... when I get my act together and get some cameras in my shop. Let me know on Facebook or Twitter who your favorite YouTube Makers are and if you agree with any of my favorites.

Peace in friends.
