On today’s show we’re talking about laminated leg vise chops, managing scrap wood, and loose tenon joinery methods. Plus we do some tool reviews on the Bosch Glide Miter Saw and Veritas’ PM-V11 steel.
Just a quick correction, we thanked Joel Laviolette and mistook him for our friend Joe Laviolette. Apologies Joel and we think you are just as cool as Joe!
