Great news.

Christopher Schwarz is my favorite guest and I wish he had his own show.

Amen to that but I resent the name calling of us that choose to do work with hand tools. I am not a friggin caveman.

One of my favorite shows, was just watching it earlier. I knew it’s been on T.V for a long time but I didn’t know it’s been that long.

I enjoy seeing how things were done in the days before electricity. Roy’s shows are informative and fun.

I typically watch reruns of the Woodwright’s Show on-line, and I met Roy at a woodworking show last year. He is just as enthusiastic for the craft in person as he is on television, and was good enough to spend a few minutes talking with me and my 8 year old daughter. At the end of the discussion he presented my daughter with an autographed demostration piece. On it he wrote “Thank you Claire! Just say NO to power tools! Roy Underhill”

That IS great news. I hope that the dumb-assed PBS station here carries the show.

Roy was one of my original inspirations for getting into woodworking!!! I have been watching him almost ALL of my life. I mean it…I remember watching him with my dad when I was around 5 and then going with him down to highland hardware to drool over tools.

I just wish one of the 2 PBS stations in Atlanta still carried the show. I guess I’ll be watching it in the computers at work while I’m on night shift…...a man has to have his priorities straight! :-P

It’s tongue in cheek, Dude… Read Scwarz and it’ll be clearer. Like this article...

And here I thought caveman was a step up in the woodworkers ladder, guess I have to go refigure. I just
wish they had more shows accessible on the Woodwright’s home page, guess I will just have to spend some
money if I want to see them. Thank you for sharing the good news.

Roy was one of my inspirations to try hand cutting dovetails. I always do it his way, tails first ;-)) Norm used to come on right after Roy on Saturday afternoons here in Seattle. I loved the way Roy would have things done by the time Norm could make the set up!

Wormil, I read Christopher Schwarz blog every time it hits my inbox. He’s one of my favorites. And Yes this is truely great news! Roy is absolutely super. And he bleeds real red blood in many of his shows.

And Smity cabinetshop. Thanks for your link. I hadn’t read that one before.

Lastly, is there any way to very simply forward these fine blogs to another woodworking friend?

Smitty I know how they mean it but too many power tool fans think that its real and it makes it dangerous I dont like the stereo type. I dont know I dont mind anarchist but Neanderthal bothers me and knuckle dragger does too.

I like the modern Hybrid woodworker that i am I use hand tools because they add accuracy to the craft while woodworkers believe that hand tools are slower those woodworkers have not used hand tools they are missing a better finish and in turn better fitting joints and finer finish that hand work brings.
