Its not just TV, though that’s the worst. Its books too. Time-Life carpentry books instructing people to cut the skirt for stairs to fit the risers and treads (nosing and all – completely impossible) instead simply dropping the skirt behind the risers and treads. A book on sharpening that I read in the 70s instructing the reader to “never touch” the back of a chisel because they are all set from the factory. More recently, know-nothing Mark Durginske’s laughable book on band saws with all the nonsense about coplanar wheels. Books on finishing that recommend shellac finishes on table tops. It just goes on and on.
