Hi all.

I was on Legacy Society tonight looking at a show I had missed, and I thought I wasn’t sure I had seen a link about the Society on here. I did a search, and noted links to specific shows, but didn’t see one for the Society itself, so I figured I would jot this down.

If this is old info, sorry.

If you have ever seen an episode of the PBS show Craftsman’s Legacy, and liked it, you can join Eric’s Society, free, see all of the episodes for free, share in discussions, and quite a few more things.

If this is all new to you the Craftsman’s Legacy cover MAKERS, not all woodworkers, but several have been. But the format Eric Gorges, your host, and Motorcycle builder, uses is phenomenal. All I can say is he made Cheese making, edge of your seat exciting for me…..

Sign up to the Society, and get started.

If this is all old info, carry on. Have a great day, and sorry if I bothered you.

It was new to me, at least. I watched an episode this morning—the arcing laminated-leg table build, and it was excellent. Thanks for posting!

I’ve watched many episodes on PBS, not a snoozer in the bunch. The only downside is the feeling of inadequacy from seeing master craftsmen (and women) at work.

I’ve been watching this show from the beginning. The people he has on the show always seem to be the best. My favorite was the “Pen Master” This guy is amazing!

Thanks guys. I think a lot of folks have seen the show on PBS, but after they air, poof a lot of them are gone. I like that he’s keeping the library of his works available.

Since a few of you weren’t aware of this. I’ve run into people who didn’t know you could still watch The New Yankee Workshop. Free even.

https://www.newyankee.com/watch/

Another goodie is The Router Workshop. They have their library intact, but you need to pay for subscription. For someone new to routers this may be a great deal though.

If you have any golden woodworking TV shows you want to pass along, feel free. I think YouTube is putting a lot of these guys out of business.

bandit. I didn’t think to add Uncle Roy. Figured everyone knew how to get him, but you are correct, he has a ton of content available. His go back to at least 2006. Sadly since his passing, he won’t be adding any more seasons to the Woodwright’s Shop.

https://www.pbs.org/woodwrightsshop/watch-on-line/watch-season-episodes/

So that means Scotty will pass him at some point. Both have been on PBS for ages.

Wrong Roy Underhill….a Roy S. Underhill, 88 did die,,but not the one from Washington DC…

Roy Underhill lost the funding for the Woodwright’s Shop show…that is the reason his isn’t on TV…..he is still alive at 69 yrs old…..

Then I bet that old rascal is going around saying rumors of my death…........ Kinda always though of him as a modern day Mark Twain with a saw, and a hammer.

Now you have to wonder HTF does a guy with the longest continuous running show about woodworking lose funding? Makes no sense. Evidently handtools have no firm MoneyMan. If he had been burning an occasional electron as he should have, One of the tool manufacturers would have propped him up. Kinda hard to get money from a company that pretty much went under in the early 60’s. Stanley of today can hardly be called a tool maker.

Kinda hard to say much about what ya can do with UNC. If someone really wants to go there, I guess they would anyhow. Now State Fram, a person could spend money a lot of places for insurance. That old “voting with your wallet” is as effective to make changes, as showing your displeasure.

You wonder if Old Roy was just a wee bit tired too?
