Brian – Went to the National Maker Faire in D.C.. Made progress on the credenzas.
Main Topic – Our most/least enjoyable process.
Listener Questions, Email, and Comments
Neil Dorin – I’ve been binge listening to the podcast over the last few weeks to catch up since I just discovered it recently. Love the podcast. I love how relaxed you all are and how you’re all so willing to share your triumphs and mistakes!
Any tips or tricks other than busting out the orbital sander (which is what I ended up doing)?
Shane Smith – I love using the bandsaw for everything, but the only one I have now is an ancient Craftsman 10″ three-wheeled one. I would love to get a larger one with a fence and the ability to use blades past the Craftsmans’ 1/4″ max. What would you recommend for someone on a budget? Let’s say, $500 for example (no idea if that is reasonable or not). Advantages and disadvantages at various price points?
CardsFan_270 – 5 Stars – Real Dudes. Real Talk. – As a woodworker, start here. Brian, Sean, and that other dude give honest, down-to-earth takes on woodworking in 2016. Not just how to make stuff, but how to approach being a maker and woodworker. Do yourself a favor and go listen. Then, when you are done, go support them on Patreon.
