Roy Underhill is a Traditional Woodcraft Treasure
We all recognize that Norm Abram is a master carpenter and his work on This Old House and The New Yankee Workshop is both technically solid and beautifully crafted, but there are other master carpenters who deserve to be recognized after many years in the workshop and behind the camera.
Roy Underhill has been the host of The Woodwright’s Shop since 1979 and is by far the longest running “how-to” show on the air today. Roy’s focus on hand tools is unique in the current day of power-everything and many would say that his skills in the workshop are unmatched.
You can catch The Woodwright’s Shop on PBS.
