The Highland Woodworker

Post - February 16, 2012

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough woodworking content. You’d think I’d be sick of it after all these years of making my own, but there is just something about a well-produced woodworking show that puts a smile on my face. I was thrilled to see a new offering from retailer Highland Woodworking. The show is called “The Highland Woodworker” and is hosted by Charles Brock, a well-respected furniture-maker who recently produced some of the best sculpted rocker plans I have ever seen.

This is not a typical project-based show. The first episode includes an interview with Roy Underhill, a visit to Whiteside to see how they make router bits, a look at workbenches, a visit to a lumber supplier to learn about walnut, and a look at a new finishing system. The show will be released quarterly and is every bit as good, if not better, than anything you might see on television. Kudos to Highland Woodworking and Charles Brock for producing a great show!

I do have to mention that the show is heavily ad-supported with significant time given to commercial messages. After all, the show is provided by a retail store. There is also an unexpected religious proverb plopped right in the middle of the video that seemed out of place. All in all, a super high quality production from a well-respected source. I can’t wait for the next installment! By the way, if you look closely during the Workbenches segment, you might see my signature from when I taught a class at Highland Woodworking. Look ma! I’m famous!
