Roy Underhill biography, net worth, wife, daughters, family.

If you are looking for a master carpenter then you simply can’t do better then Roy Underhill. Known for his extraordinary skills on the wood, Roy has served as a carpenter for over three decades. Fame followed later as Roy was asked to headline a new show entitled The Woodwright’s Shop. Roy takes a hands-on approach in the series and answers how-to questions for his viewers. The series first aired in 1979 and recently completed its 37th season making it one of the longest-running series in reality TV. Roy has been a focus for all 37 seasons and we are sure to see a potential 38th on our TV screens pretty soon. 

Early Life:

Roy Underhill was born on the 22nd of December 1950, in Washington. Roy received an artistic heritage from his mother who was a talented artist. On the other hand, Roy’s father worked as a federal judge in Washington. The youngest child of the family, Roy has a brother and sister above him. After finishing high school in 1968, Roy applied to the University of North Carolina. And while Roy is now known as the master carpenter, he first wanted to make a name for himself in theatre arts. So, he graduated with a degree in theatre directing. He continued with his studies at Duke University and graduated with a master’s degree in forestry.

Pursuing a career as a theatre director:

Fresh out of college, Roy journeyed to Colorado and gathered a theatre group called Homestead Arts. The group failed to gather the attention of the viewers and was shut down in no time. Roy then moved to Mexico where we joined a socialist commune. The commune claimed that they were making plans to change society. After a while, Roy realized that the commune was not his cup of tea and he moved back to the states to continue his education.

Working as a Woodright:

 Roy’s skills as a carpenter first came to light after he did a presentation at Duke University. One of his professors suggested that Roy should display his skills on television. Impressed with the idea, Roy set up a shop by the name of, The Woodright’s Shop. The shop garnered attention and customers were flocking to order things from the shop. Roy later approached the PBS broadcasting company with an idea of broadcasting his skills on reality TV. While his idea was turned down at first, he turned up the following year to shoot a pilot episode. 

Things escalated from that point on as Roy was beloved by viewers around the world. Roy was contracted for two seasons in the beginning but the board changed its mind after seeing the popularity of the show. The series wrapped up its 37th season with a potential 38th on the horizon. 

A happy married life:

Roy has been married to Lane Underhill for more than 50 years. The pair met during Roy’s days at the University of North Carolina. Lane has been a big factor in motivating Roy to work for his dreams. Lane is a singer who performed mostly in the taverns of Colonial Williamsburg. The pair are parents to two lovely girls, Rachel Underhill and Eleanor Underhill. 

While there is very little information on Rachel, Eleanor loves the spotlight. She is a part of the country band, Underhill Rose. The band has four albums credited to their name.
