Listener Questions, Email, and Comments
Scott King – Hey guys, I am a newer wood worker who has been learning to build furniture. I have been building lots of dining tables out of construction grade Douglas Fur lumber and/or common boards. I use a variety of power tools and hand tools, including several hand planes, to build my tables. I would like to start building with hardwoods but I don’t have any experience with them.
Marshall Toy – Any tips on a DIY-level finishing booth. I’ve got a 10×10 enclosed portion of my shop that I initially intended to use to record music. What things would you guys include/use on a budget?
