Listener Questions, Email, and Comments

Guest Questions:



Tyler (@thewoodworkingstudio) – Love the show, Boys.  If you had $1,000, $5,000, or $10,000 what would you buy with each amount?  Would you buy one big thing or a bunch of smaller stuff?  Again, Love the show keep up the banter.

Dusty Travis – Hey guys,

First off, I just want to thank you for naming your show after me- its a great honor!

All kidding aside, I am in the planning stages for an urn that I need to make for my grandmother, who recently passed.  I am using some wood that I stashed when they had to cut down the tree in her backyard that I grew up playing in, so it has great significance to our family.
That being said, I do not have large enough pieces to just turn a solid piece, but rather will have to mill what I have into boards and do a segmented piece.  Can you guys recommend a program, or some pointers for calculating the segment sizes to make sure that I’m not wasting a bunch of wood for the final piece?  Thanks for your help!

McDrummin’ – If You Ain’t Dusty, You Ain’t Trusty – 5 Stars – Quite possibly one of the most fun podcasts to listen to.  Every episode is an interactive auditory experience.  Definitely over 10 words.  Much support and stay dusty.  Allen
