    New Wood Works shows?

    Anyone have a clue as to when Wood Works with David Marks will air again? Do they even make new ones? I have no idea. All I know is that I have DVR and use to set it up to record Woodworks on the DIY Network but now when I search for the show it doesn't come up. Does it only air during a certain season or something? Thanks in advance

    I believe they stopped filming Wood Works shows several years ago and have been running reruns all this time. As for what it will air again, I'm afraid I can't help you there.

    After seven seasons, DIY decided not to fund any more episodes. As it was, David had to buy all of the materials for his projects.

    Hey thanks for the replies guys. Yep I did some research on the subject on the DIY Network website, they have a forum there. Apparently they've cut this show out to allow more room for Cool Tools, Hammered, shows like that... That stinks cus I thought David Marks did some really cool stuff and those other shows are kinda annoying. He gives you some really cool ideas and uses a lot of exotic woods. It doesn't look promising that DIY will even air this show at all anymore. There were a lot of angry people on their website with this matter. Hopefully if enough people complain they will bring it back or at the very least some re-runs

    ...Thanks for the input Bill. That's an interesting bit of info, and a real bummer on his half

    I enjoyed his shows as well. Learned some new wood names, saw some good techniques, and that router mortiser was something else. Too bad he didn't have the sponsors that the Norm had.

    The difference is Norm (mainly Russ Morash) has had PBS backing for more than 20 years. Sponsors get tax benefits by contributing to PBS. David was at the mercy of plain old commercial television.
