The Guild now has a presence on YouTube. Our channel is a place where we plan to collect edited short form videos to share with the membership and to promote our organization to the wider woodworking community.

Each video will be edited to give it a professional polish. Some may not contain any voice. Others may include captions or voice as part of the recording or even included later as a voice over. Some may include background music and others will not.

We need your help
We want to see how you do woodworking. It could be five minutes on how you sharpen a chisel or a bowl gouge. Or perhaps ten minutes on your favorite finishing process. Or perhaps a 15 minute shop tour. You don’t need to know all the ways to do it, just what works for you. 

Whatever you can do will be appreciated. Raw video does not need to be done in one take. Multiple clips can easily be pieced together. Pieces and parts that we discard will just be left on the “cutting room floor.”

How to get started 
You can record in HD with your own smart phone or camera using a tripod or a friend to record you while you work. Contact Jim Seroskie at membership@gnhw.org so that we can start the collaboration process. We can take most any file format by uploading to a dropbox location or you can exchange a USB memory stick. 

We also have a couple of members who have volunteered to come to your shop with equipment to do a recording session with you. Contact Gary Canning or Claude Dupuis at YouTubeVideo@gnhw.org. One or the other will be in touch and go from there.

Subscribe to our channel
We have created an upbeat 30 Year Anniversary video that you can see on our website home page at gnhw.org. Take a look and then scroll down a little to see the link to the channel. 

We are just getting started. There is some older previously edited material there now but also some videos from long time member Jon Siegel with more to come. 

And please subscribe to the channel. We need 100 subscribers to have our own custom channel address.
