Are you talking about Roy Underhill for logs to cabinets? My wife is particularly into his thing. I've thought it would be cool to try making guitars with only hand tools, quiet and peaceful after years of power tools as a carpenter. By the way on the last show of Roy's that I caught he talked of a Scandinavian woodworking teacher he credits with great influence on modern teaching methods and one of his catch phrases was pretty much your MEF signature.
How about Craftsmans Legacy on PBS? A motorcycle shop up in Saint Johns has a sign out front with a picture of the same tattooed hand that he has. It's called Hammer In Hand, same as the production company for the show. I assume the same guy.
