On today’s show we’re talking about boiled linseed oil explosions, ripping chains, and our featured topic: woodworker guilt!
What’s On the Bench
- Marc is focused on installing a large exhaust fan and venting his dust collection outside.
- Matt is still working on trimming out baseboard and casing, slabbing, and introducing his wife to spoon carving.
- Brian has a plugin suggestion for Shannon’s website issues.
- Kevin tells us about how he uses lower speeds on his sanders.
- Both Stein and Aaron have important thoughts on bringing kids into the shop.
- Jason Burr is wondering why he has woodworker’s guilt.
- Luke wants to know if he should modify his saw to accommodate a wobble dado.
- Matt – In a recent episode you answered a question about applying finishes in an apartment workshop. You mentioned safe finishes, including Linseed Oil. Paul Sellers, in his video on restoring wood planes, states that BLO has very real risk of spontaneous combustion – not safe! What are your thoughts?
- James – Thanks to the “new” Matt I am interested in chainsaw milling! And being the good woodworker I am, I want to over analyze every aspect of it. So tell me, what is the difference between a crosscut and ripping chain? Thanks guys, keep up the great show! PS – Don’t worry Matt. I won’t tell my wife you are the reason I want to spend more money!
