    Craft in America on PBS

    I've become something of a PBS junkie lately, when we moved back to NY we let DirecTV go, and switched back over to cable. One benefit of this was that our local PBS station has 4 channels on the local cable provider's lineup. Including their 'create' network, which features various shows from cooking to woodworking (woodwright shop, american woodshop, woodsmith's shop, rough cut & TOH, but no Nahm) Well today I was watching This Old House, and they mentioned video.pbs.org. Well, I just found that they have the series 'Craft in America' which originally aired back in '09. I Heartily recommend you at least watch the first episode, which features Sam Maloof.

    It used to be carried by our PBS affiliate but I have not seen it of late. I always enjoyed seeing the creative artists that were profiled.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.
