GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Joe Cesaro has become somewhat of a cause celeb on YouTube.
According to the Greenville Journal, when Cesaro was furloughed from his job for five months due to the coronavirus pandemic, he took to creating woodworking videos on YouTube. The result? More than 800,000 views and 21,000 followers.
Cesaro told the Journal that he learned most of his woodworking skills by watching YouTube videos. When he was laid-off, he got more serious about his hobby and began selling wood products he made to support his family under the name Lincoln St. Woodworks. He also got more serious about producing videos about his craft, which blend woodworking tips with his sense of humor.
In the accompanying video here, Cesaro leads a tour of his woodworking shop in a single-car garage. It's had 55,000-plus views and counting with more than 2,000 likes vs. 15 dislikes.
Cesaro told the Journal he is focused on reaching 100,000 views of his woodworking videos.
