Internet Sucky Stuff
Marc’s experience being a “novice” and getting conflicting advice.
Our goals for 2020, this is almost like a New Years show.
- Marc – Try some new things like steam bending and CNC.
- Shannon – Integrate marquetry into a furniture project.

Thank you for the great comeback podcast. Like it as always.
Thank you #Rockler for help bringing back one of our favorite podcasts. You guys rock.
Let the battle for wood working podcasts begin! You have 1 year to beat the pants off ShopTalk live and retake your championship belt! Que the “Eye of the Tiger”……. plus with the news of Shannon and these triathlon’s….looks like Ben and the crew have some work to do over there! Glad to see you guys are back and look forward to it all – thanks for all you guys do.
What’s Shop Talk Live?!
I just listened to this podcast and Mark was talking about steam bending and the problems he had. I had never steam bent wood, but I just watched a interesting You Tube video by a gentleman who has a coach building shop. He explains some of the problems with steam bending and shows how to eliminate them.
His You Tube channel and the name of this episode is:
Engles coach shop
The episode is: Steam bending wood 1″ thick kiln dried Ash.
Take a look and I think you’ll find the answers to some of the problems you had. Good luck!
By the way, great podcast!
Hi Guys, I have been eagerly waiting to listen but can’t access the new episode via iTunes. I keep getting an error message. I tried deleting the podcast and then downloading the episode again several times but no luck. Thanks for all your great content.
Sorry about that patty. I think there’s something going on on Apple’s end. I have heard a few reports of download issues from other people so you’re not alone, but the problem doesn’t happen for everyone. I tried using the podcast app myself on my iPhone and the episode downloads without issue. So hopefully this will just clear up on its own.
The gauges Shannon talked about, were they from http://www.klensmide.se? In that case, they were from Motala, Sweden. And yes, they are legendary nice.
