TM reader Ned writes: “The Woodwright’s Shop was the original woodworking TV show on PBS, and now they’ve posted streaming video of season 26 on their website. If any Toolmongers don’t know who Roy Underhill is, then by all means watch a couple episodes and you’ll be hooked. Then call, email, and fax your PBS station and ask for them to add The Woodwright’s Shop to their lineup since it’s rare to find it broadcast anywhere in the major media markets. It beats reruns of Router Workshop any day — just take a look at episode 2612!”
Episode 2612 is indeed a treat, featuring a New York shop that still uses 19th century belt-driven power tools. And you thought you need that $3,500 table saw to make fine furniture.
