- A great DVD that's beautifully produced Review by Jon
If you're a member of FWW, you might wonder why you'd want to bother buying a DVD of a video workshop you can watch online so let me help you out. The sheer quality of the production only gets a chance to shine through from the DVD. Picture and sound quality are so much better that I found several questions I had about the build were answered simply because things were so much clearer and I was able to quickly rewind and re-watch certain parts without worrying about any buffering problems. Add to that the fact that the plans and the Sketchup model are included and you've got yourself a very reasonably priced deal here. The only thing I would ask of future DVD's is that the Dobro Guitar music be included at the start and end - if you've watched the online versions, the lack of the theme tune sort of makes the video feel a tad incomplete (hence four starts rather than five).
