What’s On the Dining Table

Drew has been asked to do a woodworking demonstration at a local fall festival and this sparks a discussion about what kind of demonstrations can be done when time and power tools might be difficult to come by.


  • Corey has some advice on shop layout using a low tech method of cardboard cutouts.

Listener Questions

  • Brooke has a question about pre-finishing panels for a bed using Rubio Monocoat.
  • Cory asks about the usefulness of a shoulder plane for truing up his tenons.
  • Kyle asks us how we deal with splinters.
  • Mateo wonders why breadboard ends are so popular.
  • Doug asks about premium router table setups and how much they add to the function. We suggest having some fun with Rockler’s Router Table Configurator.
