Peter just might be the coolest woodworker in the world. He works in the 17th century (almost literally) and his work is inspiring. I just can't seem to get enough of his stuff.
Adam Cherubini
http://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/arts-mysteries-blogs

I have learned so much from Adam. I think his his work is vastly under appreciated. Working in the 18th century style, Adam has made a wonderful committment to illuminating a period that is almost unknown.

Chris Schwarz and the company he launched to redefine woodworking. Drink the KoolAid....you know you want to... ;)

Josh Clark is hands down the best vintage tool dealer in the world. If he can't find it, chances are they never made it. ;)

Andrew Lunn's work is beyond words. He raised saw making to a level that no one ever has before, or may ever again. If you love saws, his site remains the most inspiring place to visit on the web.
Country Workshops
http://countryworkshops.org/

While it was Peter Follansbee and Roy Underhill  who first introduced me to country woodcraft, it is Drew Langsner's work that I have become drunk on. Drew's first book opened my eyes to the wonders of what a simple hatchet and knife can do. 
Blackburn Tools
http://www.blackburntools.com/

My friend Isaac Smith is quickly developing a fantastic reputation as not only a great saw maker, but a skilled designer and engineer of saws, saw related tools and much more. A must see for the saw enthusiast.

I have been doing business with TGIAG ever since Dom Greco started cutting 1095 steel saw plates in his garage a couple years ago. He and his partner are dedicated and personable. TGIAG is my source for saw steel, saw tote templates and supplies. I can't say enough good things about them.

Jarrod Stonedahl's work speaks for itself...truly breath-taking! His spoons are drool worthy.

Robin Wood

The name says it all. There can be only one!
Mike Abbott
http://goingwiththegrain.org/

You could say I have a green fetish. Its pure, its natural, everyone is doing it. And Mike is English, which makes him at least 50% more cool than you and I.
David Fisher
https://davidffisherblog.wordpress.com/
The first time I saw David Fisher's bowls was the day before I started teaching myself to carve green wooden bowls. But his work is so gorgeous that it also makes me want to take up sewing.
