I recently discovered a very interesting YouTube channel that focuses on LEGO building techniques. I found the tutorials very helpful and enjoyable, so I thought to share them with you. The name of the channel is Back Room Builder, and is run by a LEGO fan who goes by the name Durazno33. The channel was only started this spring, but already has a good number of tutorials. Below I will show you some of my favorites. 🙂
➡ BACK ROOM BUILDER – HOW TO MAKE: Many of the tutorials by Back Room Builder focus on small creations using very clever techniques. These are some of my favorites because they don’t require a lot of parts, but the end result is impressive. These small builds can be incorporated into larger LEGO models to add interesting details. From the tutorials you will learn how to make a realistic looking LEGO palm tree, various lamps, a ceiling fan, a chandelier, a medieval well, furniture pieces, and more. You will also learn some other useful techniques in this series, like how to make a display-frame for your minifigures using LEGO plates. I have included all the currently available “how to make” tutorials in the video playlist below. You can watch them all in sequence, or select the one you would like to see by using the drop-down menu in the upper left corner of the player.
➡ BACK ROOM BUILDER – TIPS & TRICKS: While the “how to make” videos focus on small standalone builds that can be used by themselves or added to larger creations, the “tips & tricks” videos are about building techniques that are part of larger LEGO models. So for example, you will learn how to build a cottage roof, castle windows, fences, modular sections and more. I have included all the currently available “tips & tricks” tutorials in the video playlist below. You can watch them all in sequence, or select the one you would like to see by using the drop-down menu in the upper left corner of the player.
➡ BACK ROOM BUILDERS – MILS TUTORIALS: These are more advanced building techniques for LEGO fans who work on large collaborative displays, but you may also find them useful for your own creations. MILS stands for “Modular Integrated Landscaping System”. It is an international LEGO building standard that allows multiple builders to build their creations separately, and then bring them together as a cohesive display. It is used for the large displays you see at LEGO shows and conventions. The videos in this series show you how to make the basic element of the MILS module as well as provide some tips and tricks for building them. I have included all the currently available MILS tutorials in the video playlist below. You can watch them all in sequence, or select the one you would like to see by using the drop-down menu in the upper left corner of the player.
I hope that Back Room Builder will continue adding more tutorials to his YouTube channel. They are enjoyable, educational, and friendly. If you have some suggestions or requests for future tutorials, feel free to ask in the comment section below, and I will make sure Durazno33 sees them. And you can also subscribe to his channel for updates. 🙂
