First, many thanks for your excitement about “The Woodwright’s Shop” DVDs – and I have to say I’m awfully excited myself, because when Roy first came on the air in 1980, I didn’t know I wanted to be a woodworker (I was 12 years old). Now that I’ve gravitated to (predominantly) hand-tool woodworking, I’m delighted that I’ll soon be able to see all the episodes I missed while I was too busy playing soccer and frittering away my time reading.
Second, we appreciate the comments on several woodworking social media sites about the pricing – and we’ve listened. As of tomorrow, the DVDs will be on sale for $29.99 each – and everyone who has already placed an order will get the $29.99 price per (and you won’t be charged until your order ships). Why are we waiting until tomorrow to update the pricing at ShopWoodworking.com? Well, something about computer inventory systems and overnight automatic updates and I don’t know… but the price change couldn’t be implemented immediately, and we wanted to get this information out right away.
Also, Roy and UNC-TV own the rights to this material – so your purchase not only brings you hours of traditional woodworking information and entertainment, it helps to support public television – and my favorite woodwright (I suspect he’s your favorite woodwright, too!).
p.s. We’ll soon have some more information available on streaming video options for “The Woodwright’s Shop” – stay tuned!
