What’s On the Bench
- Marc is editing Matt’s sofa table videos and has a public service message about woodworking plan scams.
- Matt is making base molding.
- Shannon is thinking about outdoor furniture.
- Mark shared a video about a portable saw mill.
- Shane shared a video called “The Birth of a Wooden House”, very cool stuff!
- Eric called in to say his daughter loves to listen to WoodTalk and now wants to build a chair.
- Joe wants to know when Matt is going to get his own bio.
- Tommaso likes his drill press mortising attachment because it offers greater capacity than his bench top mortiser.
- Wil recommends using screws in the unseen side of a piece in place of painter’s pyramids when finish both sides.
- Brian has shipped furniture all over without wood movement issues. He says you need to worry more about it getting damaged in transit.
- Richard asks: you are all prolific woodworkers, so how much of the furniture in your homes have you built? I’d be interested to know what proportion of your furniture is your own work, what kind of pieces you’ve made for the home, any sets you’ve built or are working on, things you would like to add to the home collection, as well as whether there are any pieces in the house that you (or your wives) perhaps wish you hadn’t made.
- Chris is looking for a low odor finish so he can finish in his apartment workshop.
- Phil and Steve have questions about milling up logs into lumber.
- Brian got a Lie Nielsen block plane and wonders if he is supposed to grind down the blade to be flush with the sole.
