Guest Questions

Cory – Cory asks about our prefinishing routine on removing dust from the surfaces and keeping dust out of the finish between coats.  Check him out on Twitter.


Matthew Royer – Completely enjoy your pod cast fella’s!  I’m never sure what I’m going to hear!  Question, how often do you have a sharpening day in your shops?  Is it a regular thing or as needed?  Do you sharpen just what do you need or make a day of it?
Thanks again and keep up the great content.

Elliot Trent – Hey Guys, hope you’re well!  It’s me again from whimsical England.  Just to chime in with a suggestion to get a machine shop to flatten your planes, its by far the best method!  Ray Iles over here in the UK (Ashley’s brother) offers this service.  He will even sell you a restored plane with the sole flattened and one of his after market irons for around 50-60 pounds.  I’ve put a fancy Veritas straight edge to the ones he has flattened and they are among the flattest in my collection of LN and LV!  Great show!!
