36 years Roy Underhill has been airing the famous TV woodworking episodes called The Woodright’s Shop and much to my surprise he’s still producing new episode. Never has any episode been free on the net and now I’ve discovered much to my surprise it is. I think this could be in retaliation to the piracy sites but whatever the reasons are it’s free to watch and the resolution is decent.
For those who’ve never watched his episodes before it isn’t a step by step woodworking show but a summarised version of whatever he’s building at the time. What I like mostly about it is the historical aspects, Roy explains and demonstrates in his 26mins long videos of both trades i.e. Joiner and Cabinetmaking, the era, what type of tools they used, what type of joinery was employed and so forth.
I think this is probably the best find I’ve made yet until they invent a time travelling machine and record episodes out of the 18th and 19th century this one tops the list.
