It's often been said that "Seeing is believing." That would help explain the immense popularity of Woodworking Network's video library that was greatly expanded in 2010.

What was most popular?

A six-pack of videos shot live on the show floor of the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta dominated the Top 10 standings of Woodworking Network videos posted in 2010.

The much-watched IWF videos, led by No. 1 Guhdo, included Grass America, General Intl, Keystone Wood Specialties, Accuwrap and KCD Software. Each of these videos features interviews of representatives of the respective companies by WWN personalities about their company's newest products and trends.

The other four WWN Top 10 videos have a kitchen theme. This includes, the Kitchen iPad, Custom Cupboards' Robotic Workcell, House Beautiful's Kitchen of the 2010 Year and Back to the Future Kitchens, a look back what the kitchen of tomorrow was imagined in the 1950s. Incidentally, the related feature article on Custom Cupboards was the most viewed item on Woodworking Network last year with more than 7,400 clicks.
