The trouble with TV shows is they tend towards the most basic stuff as they must get a general and broad audience.

I like those how its made type shows but I always want to know how they made the machines on the production line as well as how the product is made. For me how its made should be 6 hours per show.

I think youtube has a far superior range of specialist stuff for whatever thing you are into, you can find more or less depth to suit your need.

Also didn`t Norm build almost everything already on new yankee workshop,"remember to wear your safety glasses".

Unless you can download Youtube videos you can't really organise them like that. I use post it notes and note the name of the channel or the channel owner's name. Easy to find them that way. HTH

You can save the web page of the Youtube video as a bookmark - might be called something else depending on your browser.
Bookmarks save the URL of a web page - the bit that normally starts with https://www. You can then name & sort the bookmark list to your liking.
In my browser (Pale Moon) I right click on a blank area of the page & select 'Bookmark This Page' from the list that appears.

If you wish to see real time video footage of woodworking, you could look at my channel on YouTube. But I must warn you in advantage, I have lousy TV presence (the bloody camera scares me witless), and there is no editing. It is warts and all. You have to be extraordinarily hardy, or desperately seeking a cure for insomnia! :)


Look at Paul Sellers, Rob Cosman, Ishitani Furniture, Doucette and Wolfe, and Peter Galbert (if interested in Windsor chairs).

Regards from Perth

Good advice there Robbo3, sometimes a Google picture saves a 1000 words ;

I've tried the 1,2,3. (hopefully it is large enough).
I've got probably 100 bookmarks of website that have interested me, two clicks and I'm there (click 3, then select it from the dropdown list, and you're done ;)

If you want you can create yellow folders to put the bookmarks inside; , fishing, shopping, bowling etc.

Thank you Rob I'm obliged to that. I watch YouTube on my television from the comfort of my recliner. I don't usually sign in for this and if I want to to sign in I watch direct through my PC.

Derek. Thanks for your contribution. I like all of the channels you mention and subbed to them all. I will check out your own channel too. Many thanks

John

I didn't know that Norman. Thank you.mind you my TV is a few years old now. As I need vertical blinds throughout, a new telly must wait in the qùeue!

John
If your telly has hdmi and USB ports the cheaper solution is to buy an Amazon fire stick - it makes a tired old smart telly into a clever young smart thing. Time your purchase for the £29.99 offers the prices are up and down like a fiddlers elbow.

I don't think he has been mentioned before in this topic but Thomas Johnson Antiqeu Furniture Restoration is really good, I've picked up loads of useful ideas from it. He is a proper craftsman.

Thanks Norman. Yes I do have a firestick that No. One Son gave me. I ought to upgrade maybe; or learn how to get the most out of it!

Would I be right in saying that your class would’ve had more than a mild interest though?
Other teachers were sometimes heard to say that practical lessons had an advantage because children enjoyed them. But I can tell you that what makes our subject interesting is the quality of teaching, the knowledge and enthusiasm of the teacher. Of course we here, I'm sure, all agree that our subjects are intrinsically very interesting. (Why else would we spend so much time reading these discussions?) It would be immodest of me to take all or any of the credit for my classes responses. (Not every lesson was a blinder but dovetails always went down well).

Don't know if anyone's already mentioned it, but there is apparently a woodworking contest type program in production for Channel 4. I imagine something in the mold of 'The Chop', though presumably with all tattoos digitally obscured. "Good With Wood" was the title. No idea if they started filming it yet or not - I expect covid has pushed it back to next year. IIRC the production company has offices here in Brizzle, so I wondered if they'd film it around here.

I feel sorry for the guy who was accused of being a neo nazi, it's the people at the production companies fault for not spotting it and allowing it to be broadcast, imagine how it's effected his life, he probably can't go anywhere now without that label.

That sounds interesting, I'm just across the water from you by the sounds of it. Spent many a day/night in Brizzle.
