Op de amerikaanse UNC-TV hebben ze het programma The Woodwright's Shop met Roy Underhill. Een prachtige serie, met veel humor, waarin te zien is hoe onze voorvaderen hout bewerkten tot allerlei gebruiksvoorwerpen, meubels etc.

De filmpjes zijn alleen te zien met Real Player, die je ter plekke kunt downloaden

Message from Roy:

Knowledge is one thing; understanding is another. Wood responds to the hands of man in somewhat predictable ways. And the response of wood to the steel blade forms patterns in human behavior. We are creators and teachers. The confidence of humankind is based not on superior strength or speed but on our abilities to shape the materials of our environment and to communicate our experiences. With each swing of the axe, each joining of the wood, you build and preserve within you the living memory of this timeless trade. The satisfaction you gain is well deserved.
