Roy Underhill

Roy Underhill is host of the popular PBS show The Woodwright's Shop, now in its fourth decade of production. The longtime master housewright at Colonial Williamsburg, Underhill is the leading authority on old-time woodworking techniques. He has inspired millions to "just say no to power tools" through his continuing work as a historian, craftsman, activist, and teacher. He offers instruction in these techniques at The Woodwright's School in Pittsboro, North Carolina. Underhill is author of six books, all from UNC Press.
