WharfedaleWood – Good Stuff – 5 Stars – I don’t have many woodworker friends and I mostly work alone, so I like to pretend these guys are my friends as they chat about life in and out of the shop.  Fills one of my lonely 40 hours a week at work.  For the remaining 39 I feel…abandoned.

TheTothTothTruthDotCom – Kyle Toth Must Read – 5 Stars – Hey Guys, before I read this I have something to tell you.  I’m throwing in the towel.  The Dusty Life ain’t for this gangsta no more.  Grant, I don’t need you to lie for me any more.  I really didn’t go to Boston to attend North Bennett.  North Bennett stopped paying me for every mention so I don’t feel it’s a huge deal to spill the beans.  Sean, I dropped out of my classes with Alaska Bible College to pursue my passion for breeding Golden Doodles.  Hayhayallday is actually the woodworker behind all my good projects, and I’ve been subcontracting tap handles to China for years.  I had to move to another state because my friends in California were starting to figure out I’m a fraud.  There, I feel better.  Ok, so let me read this review and it gets awkward and I start crying or you try to ask too many questions.  Great show, Guys.  Keep it up.
