In addition to the usual Let's Plays, Mumbo also has several tutorial and demonstration videos on machines built in Minecraft. He is notable for the recurring theme of placing Boats and Hoes, based on the music video "Boats N' Hoes" from Step Brothers, in the chests of many of his tutorials.[5] There is no specific series for many of his tutorials and demonstrations but notable ones include:

Hermitcraft 2[edit]

Mumbo designed the town square at the center of town. It is a giant circular bowl depressed into the ground. He built a temporary Iron Golem farm high in the sky above spawn and has since created what is known as the Iron Foundry, a design by Tango Tek, that produces over 1700 iron per hour.[7] He cleared out a jungle and built a hostile mob farm over it. The farm uses giant dark platforms with water periodically flushing them out. The mobs will die of fall damage over a hopper system. This was actually causing quite a bit of lag, because it was loading in and out so many mobs, so he re-designed it to be turned on and off using a wireless redstone signal, activated from his AFK platform.[8]

Mumbo has also opened a shop called the Redstone Consultancy, where he designs and builds redstone contraptions for other Hermitcraft members. Some projects include a door for ZombieCleo, an item elevator for Biffa, an elevator in monkeyfarm's giant skull, a design for a Wither Skeleton Farm with Xisuma, and an elevator for iJevin. A running gag of the Consultancy is Mumbo always messes up on the first try, and has to modify or rebuild the contraption. His prices are very steep, but he does usually supply all of the materials.

Mumbo's general schedule for releasing HermitCraft episodes are full episodes in the weekends that are like visual diaries on the server, and bonus episodes midweek where he talks to his viewers.[9]
