Ok So I just got an email from The American Wood Shop that they were coming back on the air, with 13 new shows. The Shows look real neat. I’m a supporter of The American Woodshop, And The New Yankee workshop, and I think both these shows are great and it’s its sham that Norm, (The woodworker I grew up with on TV) is GONE!! I thought if there are any The American Woodshop supporters out there I should let them know about the re airing of the show. If you go to the web site you can view clips of the knew projects he will be making in these 13 New shows…

What do you guy’s think of the new shows.??

(Here’s A Link)

I noticed in a blog entry, there were many LJ that don’t like the show… This post is not intended to raily anyone up….. :)

Comments welcome!!!!

I have never seen a woodworking show of any kind, (no TV). Perhaps they will put their shows on a dvd someday…

I used to watch this show quite often.

However, on one episode, he was building a piece that needed shellaced. He took a container of the shellac and pitched it (like a bucket of water) onto a vertical surface and tried to brush it out. I thought there must be a better method- especially if you are “teaching”.

There is a new show i would love to see, but my PBS affiliate doesn’t carry it.

Rough Cut with Tommy Mac.

above is a trailer for one of the shows. I know Tommy Mac is also a Lumber Jock.
I generally like all the WW shows since they are so rare. I do miss Norm on Sunday Mornings, I think my Brad Nailer is depressed too :-)

Not to put Scot Phillips down or you question Delta356 but I watched 3 episodes years ago and even as a new woodworker I knew he was doing every thing wrong. I wish his sponsor would put there advertising dollars in a guy Like Charles Neil who knows what he’s doing.
Maybe in 20years he has learned something :)

(Dave), I still can not get Rough Cut with Tommy Mac. The show looks really cool, but my PBS will not show it.
It sucks. The only two I can get is The Wood Rights Shop, and The American Wood Shop ,But on channel (Create) I can watch old episodes Of The New Yankee Workshop (Norm Abram) which makes my day.
(At Least it keeps my RAS happy) ???

(a1Jim) As I have always told myself every Wood Worker has his own way of doing things and his own techniques, and steps he takes to create an amazing piece out of wood. As all wood workers we have are likes and dislikes and not one wood worker is the right one. That what makes each woodworker his own.

I should check out Charles Neil??

I’m sure Scott is a fine woodworker and is certainly better than I am by a long shot and is a nice guy to hang out with, but part of being a TV host is also to be entertaining. I don’t find it entertaining or relaxing to listen to his voice or to watch him work. To me, the show seems rushed as if he’s trying to actually build the thing in 30 minutes. Unfortunatly that may seem like a personal attack but I could never really get into the show.

For those that do enjoy the show, I hope it has a long and successful run, it just never hooked me like Norm.

Have your say...
