Listener Questions, Email, and Comments:

Matt – Homies! Two turning questions… I’m trying out segmented turning for the first time. It’s a really heavy investment in time… Kyle, when you stack your rings on the lathe, how long do you wait between adding layers? If you’re going to turn the pieces as you go, how long do you let the glue cure? Second, and only semi-related… is there any good use for a turning tool when it can’t be sharpened anymore? My first bowl gouge just got to the point where the sharpening jig doesn’t have enough flute to grab onto anymore… thanks fellas!!

James – Hey guys!

 I love listening to the podcast and keeping up with all your projects, keep it up!
You guys have given me inspiration to take on more and more commissions lately and that is awesome! But I’ve been finding out that people hate the word “plywood”. High quality veneered plywood is a great option, as you guys know, for keeping the price down and making stable furniture. It seems, however, that anytime I bring up using plywood in a piece, no matter how I explain it, people look at me like I’ve just insulted them!
I know that you guys use plywood in some high quality builds (Credenza/prism table) and I’m wondering how you go about discussing that with the client without scaring them off.
Whether it gets answered or not, you guys have been a huge inspiration to me, and I appreciate all of your content and advice. You’re helping out the nights and weekends folks a lot each week!
Dyami – What’s a good white stain that will still show the wood grain.
Tim – Track saw v Table saw v Bandsaw.  Which order do you buy them in as a new woodworker?
ManCrafting – Are we going to Atlanta for The Woodworking Show in April?
