The Channel

Jer Schmidt / Jer’s Woodshop

Real Name(s)

Jer Schmidt


Jer has designed some of the best tools I’ve seen, paired with his own storage cabinets and work benches. Just remarkable and astounding!


He’s done a ton of upgrades, including:

➜ A wall mount for his camera

➜ A rack for his offcuts

➜ His storage drawers made from scrap

➜ Building his own dust collection cyclone

And he continues to do well for himself!


Seattle, Washington


Jer has always had an interest in woodworking and loves to take on unique projects. After starting his YouTube channel in 2014, he continued to scale and show us what’s possible.

Net Worth

Guys building their cabins and showcasing their progress on Youtube are typically wealthier than we imagine. And so, at least for now, this is my best estimate…

As of 2024, Jer Schmidt has a net worth of $920,000 USD.

He owns a house, car and woodshop, plus a ton of equipment. That certainly helps him buy all the tools he’s ever wanted, or build them if he prefers.


It’s also surprising how much he makes with his channel. The following (like my net worth estimation above) is actually my best estimate, based on his current channel and social media engagement metrics. 🙂

Jer Schmidt makes $6,000 per month on YouTube.

He does this through:

➜ Ads that play on his videos

➜ Affiliate links to products he uses (although I think he should use way more links!)

➜ His dozens of Patreon members

It’s clear that he’s treating his channel like a real business.


I haven’t really seen him collab with too many other people within this space.

Big Moments

During his journey, he has built:

➜ The world’s most impressive rolling pin

➜ A basket weave bowl from plywood

➜ Some of the most impressive hardware boxes that I’ve seen

And he continues to create remarkable things in his woodshop!

Future Plans

Jer Schmidt hasn’t been uploading much to YouTube these days, but wants to continue his woodworking journey for the rest of his life!


I think he’s single and doesn’t have a girlfriend or wife.


What can we learn from his #cabinpreneur journey?

➜ Use the tools you already have

➜ Stay humble and work hard

➜ Start with very simple projects

And be willing to have a go!

My Thoughts

Jer has inspired me as much as many prospective woodworkers out there. I hope he continues to create for years to come!
