I would imagine that just about every woodworker out there is familiar with Roy Underhill. His PBS show, The Woodwright's Shop, is a true classic work of art. I am not an "off the grid" woodworker like Mr. Underhill, but I learn something every time I watch his show, and I am always inspired by his approach and philosophy.
And speaking of philosophy...
A friend of mine has been going through back episodes of The Woodwright's Shop and came across an episode entitled The Spirit of Woodcraft. I'd highly recommend watching it. This episode raised Roy Underhill up another level for me (i.e., St. Roy).
Forget the woodworking...Roy Underhill is one of the great philosophers of our time!
