On the Stumpy Nubs
channel, James discusses
something that I have also talked about in articles and at Maker Faire talks: the issue of YouTube
makers alienating their audiences with all of the fancy free tools they get from sponsors. I have always recommended that, at the very least, YouTube
makers should think about the tools the average DIYer owns and try to offer a way of doing the project with these more common tools. James has another unique approach. Within the new, high-end shop that he is building, he is including a more typical home shop with more common equipment. He will be making content using only these tools (along with content featuring his more high-end, production shop tools). Great idea!
