Finally, after 20 years of wishing, hoping and praying, and a month of waiting for the delivery, the package arrived today. Seasons 1, 2, 3, & 20 of The Woodwright's Shop. Roy has been my woodworking hero for a long time and I'm so glad that they are finally putting The Woodwright's Shop for sale on DVD; at least the first 28 seasons. The four episodes I just received are the only ones available now, with more to follow later this year and next year. Many thanks to Roy, Meagan Fitzpatrick, and Popular Woodworking for making this happen!
Roy is a treasure trove of knowledge and an icon of hand tool woodworking. He has worked tirelessly for 32 seasons on The Woodwright's Shop and for years prior to the show teaching the craft to others. Then, in 2009, he opened The Woodwright's School in Pittsboro, NC. I was fortunate enough to take a class with him at his school last year. He is the most friendly, down to earth person you'd ever want to meet, and a great teacher. I hope to get back down there again soon.
Can't wait to get into these. I foresee sleep deprived nights in my future.
