winter is odd for us too. hang in there.
I've been following your channel for a many years now and you inspire me. I graduated with furniture making 10 years ago but sadly have been unable to make it professionally. Woodworking is my hobby and passion and without channels like yours it wouldn't be possible for me to learn and develop my skills at home in my free time. Thank you for your hard work and sharing your knowledge for free. You help to keep my passion alive. Thank you and please don't allow your channel to become a pressure. Kind regards, James.
lol people are butt hurt and unsubbing why because of what a clickbait title? or him not putting out enough content? you should be grateful he even started a youtube channel in the first place. To many of you people who unsubscribe to channels because they aren't putting out content fast enough for you. Also, who cares if he did one clickbait title get over it and yourself. This is what his first clickbait title? and y'all are freaking out like he's going to become a wranglerstar with the clickbait. Y'all need to seriously learn some patience and understand not every person can do a vlog style channel. Y'all also need to have respect for him and understand he too has a life and a family to take care of. So quit your b**ching and if you can't then I suggest a therapist to help you learn patience and respect.
Next time you are feeling down just remember that at the time of this video over 600,000 people think what you do is awesome! You inspire people. You make people want to get off their asses and go make some cool stuff. Keep your head up SAMURAI. You are an inspiration.
Hang in there buddy!
hey dude, have you tried tormek wet grinding and honing?
Is it possible to do both? If you stop putting out video's (or create less free content) how will you find people for your school? I love what you do, please try and keep some of it free for us that only wish we could do what you do.
Yo samurai, mad respect love your vids and I don’t say that lightly I’m a carpenter and I shake my head at most videos out there but I’m always trying to sharpen my skills yours are the exception keep it up
who else came here for the comments, and hasn't watched his vids in awhile to feed the clickbait?
Came across your "asian" gate video and kinda got hook . so in response to your request to "help a brother out" i'm sub scribing. you seem like a really cool guy.
Just posted below from a work computer, I am not DP, i am Chris NPeace
Hey Dude just started listening to you about ten days ago, so clips from 2-3 years ago to current. I am a novice woodworker but been around construction for many years here in Bermuda. I like very much that you keep a 100% real, whether it be about your work or your life. It is unnatural for one to share their vulnerability, this is something I have picked up on pretty quickly listening to your content, I will pray for you bro.
Someone please explain to me how this title could be considered click bait? It is clearly a perfect example of a TITLE. Obviously people have questioned the lack of videos and he is addressing those questioning.....(hence the ? at the end of the title)
With the SAD issue, how come you don't set up a timer, for normal day hours, sun rise to sun set, and hook it up with an ultrabright LED array and a heat lamp.... keep you warm and lit up at the same time.
Dude, are you related to Matt Carriker, from Demolition Ranch?
I love your videos. Very inspiring. I know youtube isn’t supporting artists like they should so I’m happy to sign up in patreon to support your efforts. All your videos have already been well worth it. God bless.
OK, trolls. Everyone in Alaska knows about s.a.d. It either affects them or someone in their family. Full spectrum lighting can help among other things.
Seasonal something or other disorder. Is that a real thing or code for lazy. I never took you for a special snowflake gernerational waste of space, but I guess true colors come out along with your new money making sceme, or school as you call it.
Welcome back. I totally know what you are dealing with during the winter!
Hey Jesse, nephew here. Sorry to hear about your winter, hope to see new videos soon!
My Dad (who went through two World Wars and was a really nice guy) would say - "Get over it".
Prayers. Please pray for your pace. I have some similar problems and hurdles. Life is better for me when I go at a super manageable pace (as defined by me). The Samurai is a personae. The man is what feeds and defines the family. You're doing great, amigo. Keep it up.
Just make project videos please. Stay with what got you here. I see to many channels lose their way.
Just say goodbye and we will go. I will miss you. Later. You have been slow lately. yes or no? You are a great wood worker and it is hard to say good bye.
So many people here think that you owe them something just because they've been enjoying your videos. If they can't understand that everyone has to deal with difficult things in their own lives, and that your channel is not about THEM, they should just stop watching instead of offering their "opinions" on what they believe are your motivations or character. When certain people go on RU-clip I think large parts of their brain shut off and they forget that you are still a human being, among other things. I don't think those are the type of people you want around you anyways. Keep your head up and don't let those types get you down. There are many more of us who will support you whether or not you're feeling well, and in whatever you are doing. All the best.
Since you're probably making somewhere between $30K - $60K a year from youtube, my guess is that you will be providing content as long as you can. Like most content producers I would imagine that the income has created a financial dependency that becomes difficult to live without once the lifestyle has been changed to consume it. On one hand I hope for the best for you and your family, and I sincerely mean that, and on the other hand I say, cut the crap.
Please do. Your ego is nearly unbearable.
I unsubbed I don't like to see an old stream on youtube with a clickbaith title. Samurai I hope you get enough work with your carpenter work but for the last year your channel is going down. Wish you alot of real work and not the youtube bullshit.
you're a great carpenter and hilarious on film, keep going.
More money over at Twitch
I hate clickbait titles
Aw'right you legend of a man!
Have u ever made a drum? Bongo or anything like that?
You will live forever. Good luck.
Maybe it's time to move to Florida west palm beach is beautiful all year hailing from frozen balls Canada you should be able to wear shorts all year round.
Can‘t understand a thing...
Be curious to know what meds helped you, i get that crap and hate it.
You should start with online courses only have a look at Steve Ramsey. He's made a very decent income offering a beginners course . after 10 years on RU-clip contributing free woodworking diy how to project videos.
"Steady in the gale" Understand completely!
I always think about our ancestors how they made it with just guts and will That gets me out of my funk
You need a holiday in the sun. Perhaps Japan. Leave the camera at home this time. See you in a couple of weeks when you have some vitamin d supplimented via the sun.Samurai rocks.
Sorry can barely hear.
Does anyone know if the Samauri tool vest is on the market? Like for sale?
Praying for you brother, you are not alone. Looking forward to who you become because of this!
Take care my friend, Samurai. Health and family are always most important. It will be a shame to see less Japanese carpentry on the air, but you could also be encouraging others to fill your void. Best wishes mate! From down under, but a former long term Japanese resident.
THE MORE YOU CALL SOMETHING YOU HAVE YOU KEEP IT THE LAW OF ATTRACTION STOP SMOKING POT AND DRINKING.
HIGH DOSES OF VITAMIN B AND EXERSISE HELPS WITH DEPRESSION
Stop drinking in the winter.
Come on you need to get out in the winter and snow shoe with your kids and wife. Playing in the snow helps and keeping yourself busy is very helpful.
Creative people always struggle.mood swings and other stuff
keep Your head up!
Sound didnt work for me to see video
Wont miss your D bagginess
He just wants more money from people
Peace! Happiness! and Health! Brother...... we are here with you
Winter sucks. Get a sunrise system alarm clock and light panel. Light therapy works. And regular trips to the Hawaii
Samurai! Can you do a hot tube video?
You put your heart in to your work... That takes it out of you. We
It's tough... Just do what you can do...
Don't medicate... it's a cope out! You can win with the Samurai Spirit!
Take your time, we'll be waiting! ;) Can't wait to have you back, on your own terms, of course!
Good luck with your endeavors. I unsub clickbaiters, so gotta go.
I can relate! Big fan of this channel!
turn up your volume please
Ever since you went live stream is the moment you lost a lot of your good viewers. And please don't make you leaving turn in to a long Hollywood death scene. You are good, don't get me wrong, but your paying customers in the REAL world need you.
Take care. Love your work. Very inspiring :-)
Good to see you back Sir! Keep up the good work.
If I was to fly over from sydney Australia is there local accommodation available and would you provide transfers... ?
What meds help, have PTSD and depression.
I hear you have been doing a job for someone in the states. My truth to that man? I figured that’s where you’ve been.
Bro move to Texas, sunny days and you don’t have to shovel the sunshine!
Good luck with your future endeavors, I enjoy watching your videos.
Depression is a killer. Take care eh!
Haven’t watched in a while . Just made a router sled to plane some bowling alley slabs . Thx for tips in those videos .
You gotta look after you and yours. Your stuff is top notch, try to hang in there mate.
you rock buddy
If you can't live up to Samurai on youtube, you should quit. Follow your dreams or whatever.
a white guy from canada calling him self a Samurai
Shaun Kennedy point? thanks try again..
I do think you need to take on some outside contracts. It gives you another income option plus it forces you to get out and about.I'm sure there's plenty folk out there that would pay a premium for you.
HEY MAN! Glad to see you. Been watching you for a few years. So excited for the school thing. I've been waiting to sign up. I hope to be your first youtube/online student.
Take care dude.
Not only is the Samurai a master carpenter and wise he is also courageous and brave, it takes a lot of bollocks for someone to openly say they have been struggling with their mental health, thanks Samurai you make it easier for me and I'm pretty sure lots of other people to open up and seek help👍 God Bless You and Your Family 😊
click bait worked for me ... all the way to the unsubscribe button . I got to 7 minutes and you openly state hat the title is click bait and it felt more like a sales pitch for your future courses than anything else. Your choice, I wish you good luck but this channel isn't for me any longer.
sorry you can't handle a clickbait title or him not putting out as much content must be hard to not get exactly what you want all the time and only think about yourself and not the people actually creating the stuff you obviously liked watching or else you wouldn't have subbed in the first place. millennials nobody can seem to please you losers
Don't forget what got you too the show.
Hey bro! Sending love from Sweden.
Keep it real... thanks!
SAD is brutal Brother. Hope you get to a good place!
SAD is real, and it’s insidious. You said you’re medicating yourself; I hope you don’t mean you’re taking meds based on guesswork. If you haven’t already, please see a professional.
The Samurai is back! Best of luck with your new endeavor.
Bro get of the meds. There not good for you. Stay busy. Good luck , Stay strong for your family.
Jas, that's like saying trench coats should be outlawed as people like to wear them to hide weapons for school shooting.
Almost every modern mass murderer in the US was medicated by "professionals". Your point is wrong.
Ya, don't listen to a highly trained medical professional but to some faceless internet expert and stay off medication.
Frank Y I knew a guy who listened to someone who was encouraging him to get off his meds...
just make something for crying out loud.
Never quit, you inspire me!
Love your channel mate but you got to look after yourself and family first so when you post I’ll be watching take care from 🇦🇺
Hope to see another project like Flower for Florence or the chest for your wife one day.
Thanks for opening up about SAD. A brave and honest thing to do... and an encouragement to fellow sufferers. Bless you buddy.
The sun is a natural way to deal with seasonal depression. We in the north don't get enough Vit. D in the winter.
When are you just going back to having videos on you making bits and bobs?
Nah, I didn't think you were leaving YT. I thought you simply died.:-D
