tv2nite.jpg(Monday, February 19th, 2007) Rather than gnash our teeth at the dearth of programming tonight, here’s a more constructive suggestion: Check out your local library’s stock of DIY videos.

Libraries usually have a number of PBS shows (TOH, Woodwright’s Shop, New Yankee Workshop) on video and DVD just waiting to be watched — all for the price of a library card.  Sometimes they will even procure videos that you suggest, making them more responsive to your needs than the Discovery channel.

All times are central.

  • Trains and Locomotives: Midwest Trolley Tour Part 1 (RFD-TV, 5:00 p.m.)
  • Chop Cut Rebuild: Smokin’ Pipes (Speed, 6:00 p.m.)
  • Unique Whips: It’s Electra! (Speed, 10:00 p.m.)
  • Trick My Truck: Robert Pike’s Lock Down (CMT, 10:30 p.m.)
  • Trick My Truck: Mike Shaw’s Dragon Slayer (CMT, 11:00 p.m.)
  • MythBusters: Shattering Subwoofer (Discovery, 11:00 p.m.)

Enjoy.

    I have to second that about the libraries–my local system is incredibly accommodating when it comes to suggestions for things for them to purchase. They have a certain portion of their buying budget just set aside for patron requests–so it may be worth checking with your local librarian. Maybe they have access to and will purchase a neat video that you can borrow–particularly if it is craft or woodworking related.
