R_u_s_s – Beautiful Disaster – 5 Stars – Most days this podcast is a total train wreck of Sean laughing awkwardly, Kyle trying to figure out what’s happening, and Grants incoherent rambling.  It’s fantastic.  They do occasionally mix in some genuine woodworking tidbits in there as well.  Brightens my day every time I listen.  Keep up the good work, Gents!

Listener Questions, Email, Tweets, and Comments:

Eric Nielsen – Hi Guys,
Love the show, I have been listening weekly since episode12. The show has changed quite a bit over time, and it has only gotten better. I have a question or possibly a short subject for the podcast – What is your method for getting accurate angled cuts? What about compound cuts?

I have seen Kyle do this 2 ways in videos; a simple jig on the miter saw to set the blade angle, and also the Rockler sled on the table saw. (How is that Rockler sled?) Curious to see what methods Grant and Sean might be using. I am working on some tables with geometric inlays and would like to be able to get accurate cuts down to the tenth of a degree.

The podcast is awesome, keep making interesting stuff an letting us hear about it!
