Had a chance to watch it last evening. I had heard of Wendell Castle before but never connected the dots as to his pedigree and accomplishments. It is a great interview and really puts into perspective the partitioning of design vs. building. I can't wait for part II. Hey guys take a peek at Neil's interview at www.furnitology.com.

I like Neil's show because it not only does it show contemporary furniture building but he gives you the in-depth history of important designers. It's a great podcast and I would recommend it to anybody.
I agree with all of the above. I have been a big fan of Neil and his show from the first episode. He has really well done content with solid woodworking advice. He also has a unique way of teaching furniture making history & design. I also enjoy how his passion for woodworking and furniture making just pops out of the video.
His Wendell Castle interview series is absolutely wonderful.

Neil, You did a great job, Know what you were talking about and were able to get Mr. Castle to open up to you. You could really see him relax in the second part. I have to say its probably the best interview I have ever seen from a woodworking point of view. Way to go Neil, and thanks for opening my eyes a little bit more.
Well today I saw Wendell Castle's 3-seat stacked cherry settee (from the organic series?) at Minneapolis Institute of Arts for the first time. Who knows how long it's been there but this is the first time I've noticed it. I have to say Neil that it was much more interesting to look at it after I had watched your interview with him. Thanks for that and keep it coming... Oh and today I just found out who Wharton Esherick is. Wow.
