Essential Craftsman started...
in 2007 as a blacksmithing 'hobby' business. With the close help of Cy Swan, Scott made a lot of really neat things and installed them in the local community. You can get a look at some of these items in our first ever YouTube video, which we made and posted in 2008. At that time Nate was in school out of state and there simply wasn't time to continue making YouTube videos.
In 2016, Scott and Nate took another run at putting content online. Fast-forward to present day, and our videos have received over 150 million views and have inspired hundreds of thousands to think differently about work, tools, and craftsmanship.
Creating this content is very satisfying, and we see it creating a positive impact in our own lives and in the lives of our viewers. The feedback has been enthusiastic and overwhelming, and we hope to continue producing content for years to come. If you're a fan of our YouTube content you will really love the additional content available only in the Essential Craftsman Academy.LEARN MORE HERE
