When Stumpy first appeared on You Tube his ideas were much bigger than his production budget! But these episodes introduced a new way of making a woodworking show, and some of the most popular homemade jigs and machines to come out of a small shop! From 2011-2013 Stumpy created a mix of segments including woodworking tips, tricks, tool reviews, and his own brand of twisted humor. This video podcast greatly evolved throughout its run, growing from a handful of loyal fans to over 16,000 subscribers in just 40 episodes- the fastest initial growth of any woodworking pod-cast! In 2014 it was shortened and renamed "The Stumpy Nubs Workshop", where the homemade jigs and budget saving ideas continue. Here you will find each of the 40 original BCWW episodes. Not all of them were pretty, but they remain as popular today as when they first aired! NOTE: This page includes a LOT of videos. Give it a minute or so to load and then you will be able to easily navigate from one to the next simply by clicking the title bars. SEASON ONE (Shown Below) SEASON TWO (Click Here)
