Keep your eye on these ladies - they build some awesome stuff.
April Wilkerson is one of the most popular woodworkers on YouTube having nearly a million subscribers and she has produced over 200 videos. She picked up her first tool in January 2013 because she couldn`t afford to buy the things she wanted to have at home so she decided to try her hand at making them instead. That was a good decision. Her videos help you to learn woodworking from the very basics to more advanced projects.
Ana story started with a miter saw, drill and a 18 gauge brad nailer in Alaska where she lives with her husband and two kids. They had built a house and couldn`t afford to buy furniture. So she took the tools they had and started to design and build furniture which is doable and also affordable. The first project turned out so good that Ana wanted to continue. Now she has built everything from the simple furniture to more complicated tiny houses. I like Ana for her down-to-earth attitude, she proofs that you dont have to have expensive tools to start building your own furniture.
Cristiana lives in Portugal where she completed the First Cycle Degree in Fine Arts – Sculpture from the Faculdade de Belas Artes da Univesidade do Porro and the IX Training Course for Music Perfomers at Casa da Música.

Christiana is the first YouTuber maker I started to follow because I was instantly hooked by her videos. She is not only a good maker but also a good story teller.
