About 20 years ago I produced a Woodworking Magazine that was distributed on DVD and contained Video content. The format was very much like a television show with stories on various subjects. That magazine ran for 3 years. I have revived that content and put it on YouTube to share with anyone who is interested. That was the genesis of this YouTube channel.
