The Woodwright's Shop with Roy Underhill on the web


One of our favorite woodworkers is Roy Underhill of The Woodwright's Shop on PBS.

He's been a guest at several of our sales and he's taught classes here as well. He's talented, entertaining and we like his style.

I just discovered this week over on the Toolmonger blog that PBS has posted all of Season 26 of The Woodwright's Shop on the web for free!

Check it out here.

You can see some of Roy's books here.
