On today’s show we WILL NOT be discussing what saws a beginning woodworker really needs. But we just might talk about taxes, the future of woodworking, as well as a butt load of content from the magazines, blogs, and forums. We are NOT live today!

Email us at woodtalkonline@gmail.com or call and leave us a voice mail at (623) 242-5180 or Skype us at WoodTalkOnline. You can find all three of us on Twitter as @renaissanceWW, @WoodWhisperer or @MBWPodcast.
