Friends of the Shop Blog, I want to share with you a new series on our YouTube channel called PopWood Playback. We’ve kept an active channel over on YouTube for years. We have over 1,000 videos posted – but the vast majority of them are excerpts from premium long format videos. Starting this week, we are going to take a more direct approach with our nearly 100,000 subscribers and release weekly videos that share the very best of the woodworking community’s videos. I’ll post the video to the Shop Blog from time to time, but if you want to get this content every week, I’d encourage you to jump over to our YouTube channel and hit subscribe to get those notifications. The description on the first video is posted below!

We’re really pumped about the year we’ve had with our channel at Popular Woodworking. We’ve posted hundreds of excerpts from our premium videos over the years and you’ve show love in comments, likes and subscribes.

Now we’re ready to kick down the proverbial 4th wall and start addressing the community directly.

SO – Jake Motz, one of our video production guys and I are going to host a weekly recap of the best woodworking videos on YouTube every week.

POST – To be featured on PopWood Playback, you have to link to your video in the comments of the previous week’s video. We’ll pull submissions from there and take picks from the editors at Popular Woodworking Magazine.

THANK YOU – YouTube has been an amazing community for us and we really appreciate your support over the years. Here’s to a great year! 👏

ALSO. I don’t want to hear about the messy shop. We’re in the midst of moving things around and it could be cleaner.
