Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #18: The WoodWright's Shop & The Highland Woodworker... I dunno about this...

04-29-2012 11:57 PM by StumpyNubs | 44 comments »

As an owner of three strands of Roy Underhill’s mustache hair, which I bought off eBay and keep in a frame above my bed, you can imagine how excited I was to hear that Popular Woodworking has signed a deal to offer the original early years of The Woodwright’s Shop on DVD. Actually, more than just excited, I peed myself a little. I love his show. To me it takes everything great about woodworking, and all that is good and pure about television, and wraps it up into one saw-dusty pac...

11-11-2009 04:31 PM by acanthuscarver | 11 comments »

With the publication of my article entitled “It’s a Secret” (click here to read the article online) in the November issue of Popular Woodworking, I started getting lots of email with comments and questions about the subject. Evidently so did the magazine because they started forwarding the emails to me. All had a common theme…”we want more!”.

Spotlight on LJ Member Tom Fidgen

01-19-2010 09:38 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 5 comments »

I used to subscribe to just about every woodworking magazine out there. I have cut back to only a couple total now but I still peruse them all at the local book store.
