Hey fellow lumberjock’s…I know some of you know that Todd is doing a live stream from his shop….I would like to say for those who did not know, have not seen it or watched it yet….to make the time. He is very informitive…takes his time to explain things and is interactive with his “Audience” every few min. he stops to check his p/c screen…reads your remarks and questions and then takes the time to answer you.

Now how many times over the years of watching Norm and other “TV” woodworkers have they had to rush through a project because of the 30 min time limit and you asked yourself “How the heck did he do that” ?

Well now’s your chance to watch a real pro at work in his shop and ask away when you have a question.

Nice post, Don. It was great to tune in and watch Todd at work. I enjoy watching him at work but it does present a time problem between posting here, watching Todd and trying to find some shop time as well. But Todd does put on a pretty good show.

Hmmmmm, I wonder why Jim…maybe it was one of his first couple of broadcast when he was working the bugs out, last night (My first veiwing) I watched for the better part of a hour and I never lost it once.

Very cool Todd!

I watched for about an hour while working on a project in my shop. Can’t get enough, I guess.

Thanks for the kudos guys.

I have had to learn a good bit about the setup for broadcasting and the best way to learn is to do it.

I personally always questioned whether Norm actually did all the work himself on big glue ups and heavy things he must have had help and as you say he seemed to make some errors which always resulted in the camera cutting away from the direct shot so, a lot of jiggery pokerry going on from time to time but in general his stuff was good.This chap your talking about we don’t get this braodcast in the UK but Norm also is finished here all we got was repeats repeats repeats all the time so I got sick of it.We have a couple of british guys trying their hand but they turn out a junk programme either trying to be stupid and funny all the time or just downright garbage being produced so anyway I hope the new guys get broadcast her in the UK soon but don’t hold your breath eh?Alistair

Hey Alistair
I’ve read a couple interviews about norm and they all asked if he built every thing him self and he said yes. from what I understand there was a guy that lots of things behind the scenes but not the projects.

Funny you mention that Alistair, here on my local PBS Norm comes on at 1:00 pm sat afternoons. Today He was making a roll top desk and so I came in from the shop to watch. It is a two part show that will finish next sat. Anyways…after he made the top of the desk and the top of the shelves, he said he was going to clean them up at his spindle sander. The desk top was very large and I said to my son who was sitting there….”I wonder how he is going to handle that large top by himself on his sander”....the next scene showed him working on the much smaller shelve top and skipped the desk top.

I am sure he did it by himself…as I would have myself…”where there’s a will there a way” as the saying goes. But this brings us back to what we have been talking about…only so much can be fit into a 30 min show format….where as watching someone like Todd or Marc…you see it live as it happens, and have the opportunity to ask questions, or See new ways of doing things you/I/we may not have thought of before.

I missed it last night. I’ll watch for the next one and see if I can watch it. Sounds very informative.

George….he does not have it on all the time. Todd is just starting out and has only done a few shows so far. When he goes live he makes a announcement to let us know here on the forum.

Sorry, I had the opportunity and it was all spontaneous. It is difficult to plan on broadcasting an actual job because my schedule is very fluid.
