What’s on the Bench?
Marc recently had a class at the William Ng School with Darrell Peart and was able to visit the The Gamble House. He also had an opportunity to get some hands on time with the John Hall frame he plans to build soon. Matt is in a late winter slump and is waiting for motivation to get back in the shop.

Kari Hultman’s video was so cool. It makes you feel like a complete idiot when the guys with axes and bow saws are like 100 times faster than you.
Thanks for the shows guys!
If I were to be swinging an axe around like that guy with the shoes…I’d be missing a few appendages!!
Why do i always hear Tom’s tits instead of Tom’s tips?
That’s because you sir, have your mind in the gutter, lol.
I have been without a shop for about fifteen years. I’ve kept all my woodworking tools stored away all this time, waiting for the oppratunity to live in a place that offers a garage or outbuilding to have a workshop in. Finaly, the day arives. I HAVE A SHOP ! I stand ther, looking at all my wonderfull tools: Table Saw, Router Table, Power Miter Saw, ect… I have materials… ” Now What ? ” I ask myself. It’s been so long that now I am stumped as to what to build. So, I make my wifa a shelf for the bedroom to put a small T.V. on. Oh’My God that was fun. Life is wonderful again….
I am loving this Marc Adams interview, however I wish the guy intereviewing Marc Adams followed up with questions on him and his father. That was a deep story and I wanted him to do a Terri Gross on him to dig deeper…I can’t imagine my dad dying after influencing me on wworking.
I was looking forward to seeing a picture of the monster pattern bit you mentioned. Any chance you can point me in the right direction?

Whoa that baby is AWESOME! Knock-your-socks-off indeed! Thanks for the link man!
A few weeks ago you were trying to bring up woodworkersclassified.com but the site was not coming up. My apologies for the problems you encountered, I had to move the software to a new server due to configuration issues. We are back up and ready to get new listings and buyers You can register or not, Ads are free, post videos, pictures and show where you are on the map. How cool is that? Soon we will have other content as well but for now I want to see if we get the traffic base to support more work on my part I have put in about 100 hours to get it running error free. Time to cruise for a few weeks.
