A few weekends ago I got restless — Norm’s project was a rerun, Bob’s old house episode was even older than me, and there weren’t any other good woodworking shows on. Trying to get my fix, I came across Woodworking Online’s podcasts and the new Woodsmith Shop show.
Woodworking Online’s in-depth podcasts (33 of ’em so far) feature different aspects of tools and woodworking — they’re actually recordings of seminars done at the Woodsmith store in Des Moines, IA. The different presenters do a good job of going over the concept of tools and demonstrating their use.
Woodsmith has recently branched out beyond just podcasts with Woodsmith Shop, a public television program that’s available in some parts of the country. Each episode features different woodworking projects, and you can download free plans to go with each episode.
Unfortunately, I’m going to have to satisfy my woodworking video addiction with podcasts and free online plans until I can get to a TV market that has the new show. Have any Toolmongers had a chance to see it? Post in comments if you have.
