Bob and Rick Rosendahl(father & son) had a TV series called "the Router Workshop" on our public broadcasting stations(PBS) for 14 seasons. The show was sponsored by Oak Park Enterprises LTD(Bob's company) which produced and sold many of Bob's jigs, accessories and the Router Workshop router table. Bob toured the USA and Canada with woodworking shows where he demonstrated his "Keep it simple" method of routing. Rick was a woodshop teacher and joined his father for the TV show.

Bob's jigs were unique and many versions of them are now offered by other companies. The Oak Park style box joint jig, the router table miter sled and the EZ Link system are examples.

Oak Park stopped producing their woodworking products a few years ago. They still have DVD's of the TV show and a couple of very good books available. Project E-plans are still available for purchase.

Grandson Mark is the founder of Routerforums but is longer involved.

Our two local public stations don't have any decent shows for WW or anything related.

John, they should carry Rough Cut, Woodsmith Shop and The American Woodshop? Write an email to the station if they don't.

Hi Esko,

many of us 'oldies' have been fans of Bob & Rick for many years and we sometime forget and quote them in a post.

Our Fios cable service has a lot of odd channels in the 800-900 range and a careful research a couple of months ago turned up several woodworking shows I had no idea were on. May be different in your area. You could also try a google search and then visit the websites of the programs where they usually have a channel guide.
