Ok here it is….we have waited and waited and then that great day came when we finally got the news…..the Woodrights Shop is finally going to be released on dvd!!!!! Before I even review this first installment I want to say in my opinion this set may only be for the diehard Roy Underhill/Woodrights shop fan only, in regards to if you are wondering if the marked down $39.99 to $29.99 price tag is worth your money for each double disc dvd package.

Hi friends, if you were thinking on dusting off that old rusty brace and bit this would be a fine way to start if your thinking on pulling some of the plugs during your shop time.
