Great find. Thanks.

I'm into wooden boats, steam powered mostly, but a bit on sail power too. I read about the total restoration of an old sail boat, not huge, but fair size. They called it a restoration, but the wood was rotted, sprung, and pretty much trash. When they finished 'restoring' the boat, the only original piece of the boat in it was a piece, maybe four foot long, with the date it was built carved in it by one of the original builders, the rest of it was new, from fastenings, to wood, you name it, it was new. I wouldn't call it a restoration myself, but because of that one piece of original wood, they were allowed to register using the original build date. Never could figure that one out.

Our local PBS stations have nothing with woodworking or any such thing as restoration. Haven't watched PBS in years.

I am lucky to have the full series of The Router Workshop stored on my HD. Great watching. Pity that is not still on PBS....
