This week, we have a special guest host with us: Shannon Rogers from the Renaissance Woodworker.
What’s on the Bench:
Shannon is putting the final touches on his workbench project and is enjoying his time with his new Lie Nielsen tongue and groove plane. Marc is back from his classes at the William Ng School. Matt is trying to figure out how the heck he is going to get that new granite-topped tablesaw down into his basement.
