I started my shop cleanup this weekend and recorded my first video for my YouTube channel WilmerWoodWorks. Like everything, there is a bit of a learning curve. First, I used a cheap camcorder that we have had for years and I knew the audio quality wasn’t going to be good fortunately I have an audio recorder and microphone that I was able to strap on. Well, I forgot to test the microphone and the first one I chose didn’t work. It would have been awesome if I knew that before I recorded all my video with blank audio recordings. So, I had to boost the audio from the camcorder when I edited the video. Lesson learned CHECK AUDIO & VIDEO FIRST!
The day went pretty fast. I did get to clean my work benches off but didn’t get to do a real inventory of what I have or what I woul like to move so I will have to do that possibly Thursday. Here are some photos of what the shop looks like now.
I think moving forward I will try to keep to this general schedule:
- Monday – Blog Post
- Tuesday – Post Video on YouTube
- Wednesday – Blog Post
- Thurs – Rest
- Friday – Blog Post
- Saturday – Record Video
- Sunday – Edit Video
We’ll see how I can work with that work load and if everything goes smoothly maybe I can add additional videos weekly down the road.
