Woodworking Workshop
Weekend Watch: The Projects of Liam Barclay

The purpose of the Weekend Watch column is to introduce up and coming YouTube makers to our audience. Most of the people we profile have been posting videos for a year or so but still have under 1,000 subscribers. Here’s your chance to get in on the ground floor on what looks like a very promising maker and his channel.

Liam Barclay only has two project videos on his page so far, and only 100 subscribers. But his projects are gorgeous, one, a beautiful, organic/Art Deco-looking white oak and maple desk, and a “Portal” garden tension bench.

Liam has full construction details on the garden bench on Instructables. There is also an Instructable on his oak desk. And Liam has a website where he showcases his work.
