2 Episodes on Campaign Furniture on ‘The Woodwright’s Shop’


You can now watch two episodes on Roy Underhill’s “The Woodwright’s Shop” on campaign furniture that we taped earlier this year by following this link.

Use the arrows below the main screen to scroll over to the episodes you want to watch.

One of the episodes is an introduction to the style and a demonstration of cutting lapped full-blind dovetails. The second episode shows my strategies for fitting inlaid corner brasses and campaign pulls.

I wish we would have demonstrated something additional: Roy trimming my hair. All I can think while watching these episodes is: Get a haircut, hippie. And a job.

The pieces shown in the episode are also featured in my book “Campaign Furniture,” which is available in our store and through our retailers. We are almost sold out of the the first edition of this book and we will be returning to press to print the second edition shortly. So if you are one of those people who collects first editions, consider yourself warned.

    I love this “campaign furniture” stuff! Our cramped garage, work schedule and now bad weather have probably put a halt to any larger projects for the time, but I’m looking forward to trying my hand at them this spring. Until then, I’ll be working on projects like electronics and maybe some leather crafting.

    I have already watched them as soon as they were put up. I check PBS daily for new stuff from Roy I think I have seen them all about 10 times. I love the ones with you in them I have learned so much just watching..

    I think these episodes are the first time I’ve seen tools younger than I am on The Woodwright’s Shop 😉

    But which type of hippie are you, the “giggling stoner hippie”, “the drum circle hippie” or the worst of them all, “the college know-it-all hippie”.


    Hope you and your family had a happy Thanksgiving.

    Just watched the first one. “Drop your knickers and think of the fields of England” made me laugh out loud!

    Have a couple of campaign pieces – inherited and looking to make one of the officer’s chair.

  7. Haha, “the flush hardware would keep from chafing your elephant” is not a sentence I ever expected to hear
