Meet April Wilkerson, from woodworking novice to YouTube sensation.

In the ten years since the launch of YouTube, the video-sharing website has become the go-to destination for guides on how to do just about anything. Woodworkers are generous folk and many are taking to YouTube to share their skills and help us all improve our craft. Tool reviews, shop tours, project ideas and tips of the trade are all available online for anyone looking for woodworking news and information.

There is a growing community of woodworkers with their own specialist YouTube channels, some of whom make their living from doing what they love, sharing projects and ideas with viewers. One of the woodworking YouTubers is April Wilkerson  Triton Brand Champion for the USA who also provides valuable feedback on product development. April is the first to admit that she is relatively new to woodworking but with a passion for making and a determination to learn and share her knowledge she has gained a committed following for her YouTube channel. 
Triton Tools caught up with April at her workshop in Texas, USA, to find out more about how she has turned her woodworking hobby into a successful YouTube channel that is now her full-time job.
We also filmed an exclusive project build with April which will be posted here on the Triton blog early in the New Year so don’t forget to come back and see how it went.
To see more of April’s work, read up on her project or download some plans, check out her website www.wilkerdos.com  and her YouTube Channel  www.youtube.com/user/AprilWilkersonDIY

  2. It is very pleasant to become a sensation because it will bring fame to you and help develop your business, but on the other hand it is very troublesome.

    5/19/2019 USA Grandpa Bill (Meticularius): Meticularius speaks: As a 71-year-old woodworker, destroyer, and reconstructionist, I feel inspired to say to all global viewers that beside Sir David Attenborough, April Wilkerson is the healthiest and finest on-screen presentation of any platform available to viewers old and young. She brings us herself and her family and her friends as an ambassador of goodwill, personal growth, and victories. If I had a daughter I would want her to be April. Her rise on Youtube is a testament to the American Spirit long heralded since our forefathers. My grandfather, Alexander Hamilton, and his cronies would have eschewed April's attitudes unless she was chopping wood and making soap in a cast iron kettle. April's "I can do this" fostered by her father is illustrative of the healthy relationship between father and daughter, so vivid against the backdrop of so many abusive relationships today. YouTube has the unique opportunity to foster such presentations to assist in growing a healthier America, while unfortunately providing a platform for some pretty sick stuff in obscure corners. I say we owe our children and our grandchildren the quality of April Wilkerson's daily growth as a developing fellow adult. Her journey is in a way our own journey through the wilderness of "Huh?" to the vista of "Ohh YEH!"
