Listener Questions, Email, and Comments:

Tawnya Rhib – Hey guys,
First off I want to thank you for not butchering my name while reading my review (I’m T. Rhib).
I really appreciate the time you all take to make the podcast and put YouTube videos out as it’s really helping me learn more.  I’m a beginner and started making some furniture to furnish my house and am hoping to one day be half as good as you three.
I have two questions, one about wet sand paper.  I recently saw wet sand paper at Rockler and was wondering when would wet sand paper be used and do you guys use it?  My guess was it would be used between finishing coats but thought I should ask before testing.
My second question is about table saw blades.  I was given a Ryobi BT3000 contractor table saw by my in-laws and I know this blade needs to be replaced.  Its looking pretty rusty and I’ve only used it to cut pine and plywood (like I said, beginner).  I’d like to upgrade the blade so I could start working with hardwood and was wondering which blade I should get. I was looking at Rockler’s “red blades” and there’s quite a bit to choose from.  The only things in the works right now are a dining room table and some built ins around my fireplace.
Thank you in advance, your advise is greatly appreciated.  You guys are rock stars!
