iTunes Ratings

Miter Mike’s Woodshop – 5 Stars – You know I packed my The Dusty Life podcast shirt to show support and wear while you did your podcast, I am very disappointed that I took up space in my luggage…oh well I had a blast with Kyle and Sean, can’t wait for the next one when Brian will be there…LOL.  Keep up the great work.

Daveborg98 – 5 Stars – These guys do a great job at taking what some people can make boring and create great content with it.  There are few things that can take my son’s attention off of his classic country music but this is one show that does.  At 8 years-old, it gives him insight and the opportunity to occasionally teach about not repeating everything we hear 🙂  Keep it up guys.  P.S. Thanks, Kyle, for making my son VERY cautious around the router table as it scares him every time I us it…he thinks it will chew up my pinky at any moment.

Matthew Royer – Completely enjoy your pod cast fella’s!  I’m never sure what I’m going to hear!  Question, how often do you have a sharpening day in your shops?  Is it a regular thing or as needed?  Do you sharpen just what do you need or make a day of it?
Thanks again and keep up the great content.

Elliot Trent – Hey Guys, hope you’re well!  It’s me again from whimsical England.  Just to chime in with a suggestion to get a machine shop to flatten your planes, its by far the best method!  Ray Iles over here in the UK (Ashley’s brother) offers this service.  He will even sell you a restored plane with the sole flattened and one of his after market irons for around 50-60 pounds.  I’ve put a fancy Veritas straight edge to the ones he has flattened and they are among the flattest in my collection of LN and LV!  Great show!!
