Woodworking TV Shows

Just wondering if there were any woodworking TV shows you guys make sure to TIVO or DVR every week. I've got my DVR set to record the Woodsmith Shop episodes on PBS. I like the simplistic aproach those guys take to woodworking.
How 'bout y'all?

Woodworking shows

I also like to watch woodsmith on PBS. If I can't watch it live I record it on DVR. I also like to watch woodwrights on PBS. I use to enjoy watching the New Yankee Workshop, but it no longer comes on my PBS station. I have also signed up for e-mail tips from woodsmith, and get them once a week on my e-mail.

I'm still a New Yankee Workshop fan. I know they are old and somewhat out dated but it still enjoy them. I also like the Woodsmith Shop. I'm not into that new show Rough Cut. Just can't seem to get into it.

I've never heard of Rough Cut. Is that on PBS or some other channel like DIY? I used to watch the New Yankee Workshop but they took it off the DIY channel. I haven't looked on PBS, but I'll check that out today.

I signed up for the same this morning! That's what led me to start this thread...

Yep, I like woodsmith shop too. Lots of clever but simple ideas. Roughcut's good, but I think the guy's still getting used to being on camera. Those are the only two I know of. I've never seen woodwright. I'll have to look it up.

Woodwright and NY Workshop no longer play locally, so Tommy Mac is about it around here... Not too interested in his show although I do TiVo it in case it gets better.

There`s nothing more American than a guy that can build an aircraft carrier in his garage over the weekend.

Rough Cut....(Tommy Mac) airs on a channel called Create here. Its one of 4 PBS channels available off the antenna (don't have cable or sat TV anymore) Its OK, but you better already know how things are done to get anything from it. He's got a web site and a section that goes into a lot more detail on some of the stuff he builds. He also has a forum where everyone drools all over every thing he does.

I do miss Norm. I suppose after all the years and all those projects he earned his retirement. However he still seems to be very involved with the This Old House series and every once in a while he'll make something for the remodel in his shop. You can still watch the old shows at the web site if you ever need a NYW fix.

Woodsmith Shop and Woodwright's shop are really the only two that I watch anymore.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Woodsmith is a good one, Rough Cut is ok, he has good project ideas but seems too hurried and rushed compared to other shows. YouTube is a great resource for woodworking videos too.

I watch woodsmith and woodwright religiously. I really like the woodwright. It shows that if you get the tools and learn a little, the old style can be just as fast and much more rewarding. I watched Rough Cut once but haven't since. I think I've just been missing it.

rough cut seems way to hasty to not show any details in my opinion

nice shop he has though

Not exactly what I have in mind for a Saturday or Sunday morning with a cup of coffee... but I suppose it will get you the information you want. I have used it for specific questions I've had in the past.

Tommy Mac is quite a woodworker and studied formally in one of the oldest woodworking schools in the country but......

He's not much of a teacher though and in IMO his program is rushed and more project oriented than tip and technique oriented.

I watch it but it's not my favorite.

WOODSMITH - I can't seem to find full episodes online. Are they there and I'm just not seeing it or are they not online? All I can see is the previews:

http://www.woodsmithshop.com/episode...s-pegboard.flv

It seems like a lot of the stuff on there is stuff I would be interested in!

I’m actually a Rough Cut Fan. I don’t like the New Yankee Workshop - Norm seems to make everything with tools that I don’t have (and I have a complete workshop) and uses nails far more than I would, though he has inspired countless home woodworkers. I think we should give him credit for that. Woodsmith is enjoyable and I do watch it, often getting little hints that are helpful (we never know it all, right?). But they seem to shy away from difficult joinery and handwork like dovetails. I think the reason I like Tommy Mac is that he encourages the home woodworker to push themselves. It’s been my opinion that many hobbyist woodworkers think they can’t so certain things - like cut dovetails by hand - and in fact they probably could if they tried. Rough Cut encourages that.
Finally - lets not forget Roy Underhill and the Woodwright shop. He’s an absolute master of hand work and history.
