This video marks my one year anniversary with MAKE. It has been a great year! I have added over 20,000 subscribers to my YouTube channel and added over 30 new movies to the world.

Creating these movies is the best mental exercise for me. Having to create an object and tell the story with visuals only is the challenge each week and it keeps me inventing constantly. In the video above I call out my top five favorites videos and some of the inspiration that went into them.

Thank you MAKE and the maker community for supporting my video series. If you’ve got ideas or suggestions for future videos and projects please let me know in the comments below.

Below are the links to my favorite videos of the past year. Here’s to another great year:

In each episode of DiResta (every other Wednesday), artist and master builder Jimmy DiResta (Dirty MoneyHammeredAgainst the GrainTrash for Cash) lets us into his workshop, to look over his shoulder while he builds whatever strikes his fancy.

    Thanks for the awesome videos! I love the synergy of the proper tool with technique while not being afraid to break out the hand tools and elbow grease. My favorite so far is the hatchet but there are many others that are close seconds. Thanks again!
