Rarely do I find a YouTube channel that causes me to want to watch all the videos they’ve uploaded but Shawn Woods has amassed a fascinating library. His videos almost exclusively feature mouse traps, their construction and use. Some of the designs he builds from can be hundreds of years old. Conversely, he also uses 3D-printed parts as well in some of his traps. His videos are both informative and entertaining.
Mr. Woods lives on a farm of some sort, so he has access to all sorts of rodents and pests. I also enjoy the fact that he’s humane when it comes to the animals he catches. For live traps, he’ll always let the pest go. For kill traps, he always ensures the method of extermination is done as quickly and painlessly as possible.
I’m off to see how a 400 hundred year-old mouse trap works.
