Looking for DIY and home improvement recommendations? I’ve created a list of the best DIY and home improvement resources to help with your projects.
I find videos a great way to learn new DIY skills. Check out these channels that I recommended in my 10 DIY YouTube channels you can spend hours on post.
Scott and Nate Wadsworth run Essential Craftsmen – a Youtube channel with tons of videos covering everything from the basics of using a circular saw to how to build a spec house. You should check out their website as well – essentialcraftsman.com.
Mike from Modern Builds focuses on showing you clean, modern furniture plans that anyone can build. The end result is furniture that looks modern but its also functional 🙂
Ask the builder
Tim Carter has been building houses for 30 years and it shows in his videos. He’s a master carpenter, master plumber, master roof cutter and he uses all his skills in his videos.
Home Repair Tutor
House Improvements creates videos dedicated to the common (and not so common) DIY tasks that home owners face. Their videos cover kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, electrical and more. And their website has a lot of great tutorials.
Lowes Home Improvement
Lowe’s youtube channel has over 800 videos that cover just about every topic you can think of.
Home Improvement How To’s
If you need to learn about painting, (I know I do…) check out the Home Improvement How To channel from the Idaho Painters. Their videos cover just about everything could ever want to know about choosing the right paint and how to get the best results.
Makita Power Tools
It’s no secret that I love Makita tools 🙂 So for someone like me, the Makita Power Tools channel is awesome. And even if you don’t share my enthusiasm for Makita, you’ll still learn a lot from watching their videos.
The Sparky Channel may not have the marketing glitz of other channels in this list. But that’s more than made up for by the sheer amount of knowledge you get from watching the videos 🙂 Definitely a diamond in the rough.
If you’ve got questions about floors, laminate, tile or anything else you walk on, Mr Youcandoityourself has the answers.
