Hi guys,

A comment then a kickback, sorry to combine them but you know, brain dump

Regarding Norm Abrahms, have you considered inviting him as a guest host on the show? Or for Marc as a guest builder for a guild project?

Kickback: in ep320 you had a guy asking about a portable worktable on saw horses. I recently found a collapsible saw horse at home Depot that worked pretty well, it collapses like those camp chairs into a small bundle that fits in a bag, and it claims to handle 1200 pounds

Hugs and sawdust,

I put my sawdust with my yard waste and have never had a problem. My town uses those large, wheel away toter cans for yard waste, so the guy doesn’t actually see what is inside before the truck takes the contents. Maybe that is why they don’t reject it. But I am fairly confident that domestic wood chips are perfectly safe for their composting operation, or whatever it is they do with yard waste.
