Main Topic – How Our Schedules Have Changed

Guest Question: 

Ty Moser – What are the pros and cons of content creation?  Do you grow in your own work?

Listener Questions, Email, and Comments:

Joe Pierce – Since last weeks episode didn’t have any emails for Sean to read, I’ll try to help.

My next project is to build a 6 person dining table from pecan, I have way more than I will need for the project and it is all 5/4 rough sawn. I’m not entirely sure how the base is going to look, but I’m thinking trestle or some variation.
Do you dusty guys have and tips or hints to help me out in my first large table endeavor?

Rebecca Orange – Hey guys,

I am employed full time and plan to continue my day job until its time to retire. I have become ever more obsessed with woodworking and learning as much as possible for the last year and a half. I very much want to sell projects on the side to help supplement buying all the best tools and having some extra cash. What concerns me is the few people out there who are sue happy and the potential of losing money in a lawsuit. What is your opinion on LLC, INC, etc.(I don’t know the difference)? Also is LLC even something I should be doing as I don’t plan to be a factory pumping out items, I still want to keep the enjoyment, just selling a few items here and there. Does this make sense for tax purposes as well? Will I end up having to pay more taxes than what I make if I am not selling items?? I greatly appreciate your help and advice!

  1. Hey Brian,
    (repeating my comment on youtube)
    Thanks for the great shows.
    Have you investigated any more into the depth of cut issue on the mega dado/box joint sled?
    My guess is it is problem with the key, but you would have to make some careful measurements. Maybe the hot glue doesn’t give a consistent offset depth.
    Another possiblility is that the screws attaching the fence spread the plies a few microns.
    Drill couple of holes in the sled deck and measure the distance to the top of the saw table.
    I would love to hear a follow up on the Dusty Life Podcast .
    I hope you get those internet issues ironed out so you don’t miss any more shows.
    All the best.
