Joshua – Guys and Brian,

    Have you ever started a project without filming it and part way in realized you should be filming? With that you start filming from that point on. How do you go back and cover/fake the beginning part that you didn’t film?

Listener Questions, Email, and Comments:

Dave Barlow – Been meaning to ask about the ins and outs of making beds. I had a few specific questions but can’t remember a damn 1 of them thanks to working so much OT lately. The wifey found a few really good reference pics and I’m about to start reverse engineering it for the design drafts. Y’alls videos on beds and your other project videos that have similar techniques are awesome and have given me a really good place to start. Is there anything in the videos that haven’t been covered that you wish you could add to or may have left out? Anything that you would change?

Andy Eskew – Hi Guys,

Great show! I enjoy listening to your different perspectives. I had a question on how you all deal with differences in wood color, say for a walnut table top? I had picked out several 8/4 6″ wide walnut boards that were all similar color in the rough. Table top was going to be wider than my 15″ planer could handle so I glued them in groups of 2, planed them and then glued them together. After pulling off the clamps I found 2 board to be a lot browner than the others. Unfortunately they were next to each other and caused an offset racing strip effect. I ended up cutting the pieces apart and alternating the colors. I didn’t have enough 8/4 left to replace the 2 off color ones. Hopefully it will look ok when it is finished.
So basic question is just how do you look for / deal with color when making something wide that you can compare board colors like this? Do you have lots of extra that you can replace if needed? Do you plane all first to get a better idea? Do you mix and match and let it go, wood has different colors and it doesn’t matter?
Picture of color mismatch
Thanks,
Andy Eskew

Thanks gents.  Cheers.

Kyle – Delivered the Rubik’s Cube and turning some more tap handles.

Sean – Working on the bathroom remodel, making a vanity, and made a video on edge banding plywood with veneer.

Brian – absent

Main Topic – Being overwhelmed and focusing on new goals

Listener Questions, Email, and Comments:

Matt Gerber – What’s an unnecessary upgrade you’ve purchased and why was it worth it?  For example, I bought some ketchup and mustard dispensers for glue (thanks Kyle) and found the consistent bead and ability to get into tight spaces phenomenal.  Another example is I bought a 1.5 inch wide Japanese chisel and found the iron to rest flat while the handle goes at an angle allowing a straight cut on a flat surface.  Small and frivolous upgrades, but delightful to work with.  What other small upgrades have you guys found for me to spend my money on?

 

Thanks gents.  Cheers.
