I can hardly believe it! Now, through YouTube (YT), cob building is more accessible than ever. Many of the YTs on this page were produced by user redpharmacist, who is actually David Sheen, also AKA Ashan, and I want to thank him for interviewing so many of the people of great energy and optimism who have inspired the modern return of cob building. The YouTubes from Ashan are excess extended interview footage from a full-scale documentary he plans to release in January of '08, so obviously that will be a milestone. Please enjoy his cob videos below, or go see all of his vids by clicking here. Also, thanks to everyone else who, like Michael Blaha, produced YTs or self-hosted vids on cobbing!
