Hello, I live in London, ON and I have not been able to find your show on our Rogers Digital. Is it only shown on satellite or in conjunction with another program? Thank you. (Dan) Nagataman

Welcome Dan. Many of our Canuck members who have cable get WTVS, the Detroit PBS station. If your cable company provides you with this station then please send an email to WTVS and request the show be carried again. WTVS has "cut"(pun intended) some woodworking shows since they do not get enough feedback from the sawdust makers. I had to resort to watching the Router Workshop on WFUM, the Flint PBS station; now they have dropped the show as well. Viewing the show over the web is better than nothing but is still not the quality of a PBS broadcast. Reruns of the shows would be an asset since many members have never seen them. You will find all the PBS woodworking shows listed at pbs.com as well as a link to the individual stations. Tell everyone at Possum Lodge hello and keep your stick on the ice.

Hello Dan. Welcome to the router forums. The "Router Workshop" is shown on many PBS stations. This is where to look for is on TV.

Mike, you're close enough to the border to know what a cultural wasteland we live in here in the Great White North.. :)) The Detroit PBS was the only one that carried The RWS on Canadian cable here, and I'm assuming London (2 hours east) didn't even get that.

Hmm... Dan, do you get any Buffalo stations thru Rodgers? Might check one of them to see if it is a Public Broadcast Station.

In any event, welcome. This is a great place to put your feet up and do some reading.

It's worse than you ever imagined Brian. Most of my relatives are from the Manitoulin, some in the Soo and Sudbury areas. This is how I knew about Canuck cable carrying PBS. If you have never seen it the lumber mill on the Josiah Henson farm (Uncle Tom's Cabin) is worth a look. The museum gives insight into the woodworking craftsmanship of the runaway slaves. I was impressed with their building skills and the assortment of tools they hand crafted. Only thing I can't remember is how far it is to Dresden, perhaps 1-1/2 hours NE of Windsor?

Man, it's getting to be an awfully small world. My Mother is from Falconbridge, which is almost a suburb of Sudbury now... got relatives all over that area. Dad had uncles who farmed on the Manitoulin. And the first time I saw Josiah Henson's boots, I think they came up past my waist!! And I don't even want to THINK how long ago THAT was!! And you're just about right on with the travel time, give or take 5 minutes.

I joined this forum when it started and the URL was put on the Australian ubeaut woodworking forum. The program isnt shown here in UK unfortunately. Woodworking has always been on the Discovery Realtime digital satellite channel with NYW being the main show. The channel has deteriorated to being mainly fishing and property programmes. This week NYW has been relegated to 5.30am.
The URL for Thewoodworkingchannel was posted on the Discovery Realtime forum on the longest running thread which has complained about the poor programme choice on the channel over the last 3 years.
I have finally been able to watch the Router Workshop on my PC.
Seeing the techniques in use is worth books full of text.
:D
