Listener Questions, Email, and Comments:

Dan Howard – First off, great podcast! I have been binge listening to get caught up…

Brian  I just wish I would have discovered it sooner as I just moved from my townhouse basement workshop in Baltimore as well, except I landed in Northeast PA.

To get to my questions: 1.) I was gifted two cherry burls, one is small that I will turn into a bowl, the other is 3ft wide and

2ft tall, any recommendations what I should do with this? Also, how should I handle them, should I allow them to dry out prior to working with them? 2.) where do you source your West Systems Epoxy and what type of hardener do you use? I have not been able to find it in rural PA (the price seems steep from what I found online).

I appreciate what you three are doing and keep up the great work!

iTunes Reviews

JeffBull-2789462850 – Great Content and a lot of heart – 5 stars – This podcast is both informative and insightful.  I love listening to it while working in the shop.  Great stuff. PS, Dear Kyle: Last episode you said “bring it on”.  Ahem.  The illustritive illusionist illustrated illogically illiterate alliterations. 🙂
