The Woodright's Shop...

The Woodright’s Shop is a woodworking type TV show that has been running on PBS in the states since 1979. It is hosted by Roy Underhill and covers a range of projects and heritage type wood craft activities and, if I’m honest, is just so thoroughly addictive – I often watch it online for hour after hour. Check it out here:

This is the only one of Roy’s projects (with the exception of spoon carving, of course, which he does with special guest Peter Fallansbee) that I’ve actually had a go at. It’s supposedly a carpenter's tallow box that closes with a very simple but clever secret locking mechanism. Mine is made from olivewood and I’m sure will look even better with age and use.
