I was actually meaning to post a youtube thread a while ago. These are some channels that I've found are pretty good.

Thomas Heaton - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfhW84xfA6gEc4hDK90rR1Q

He's an English landscape photographer, and watching his process is really interesting. I love being outside, but I don't think I could do landscape photography. I don't have the patience (or time) to spend hours waiting to get just the right shot.

AvE - https://www.youtube.com/user/arduinoversusevil

This guy tears apart tools in his garage (and is apparently making up his own language). He really knows his stuff though, and it's fascinating to see the way these things work, and what sorts of design decisions were made when building the tools.

Essential Craftsman - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzr30osBdTmuFUS8IfXtXmg

AvE tears apart tools. This guy uses them and makes them. His series on the use of basic tools is great. I really had no idea how versatile some of these things are. There's an almost twelve minute long video on the use of tape measures, and the whole thing is excellent.

Styropyro - https://www.youtube.com/user/styropyro

Do you like lasers? This guy likes really dangerous lasers.

Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
