That’s right Marc…say my name. Great episode. Was pleasantly surprised that another one was published so soon after/during your move.
Listening to the podcast and I have used a wood texture material set for sketchup that has quite a few wood grain/colors to choose from. It might come in handy for your listeners, if they do their own sketchup modeling.

Mark made a comment that he would take warm clothes donations. What are your sizes?
Marc, when you were planning to move, did you ever consider making crates for your larger tools? 2 x 4’s are cheap and they wouldn’t need full plywood sides, but it would prevent movers from lifting tools by the beds or tables. Just a thought, thanks for all the great content.
Nope. After moving several times, I have faith that these guys aren’t going to do anything I can’t easily undo.
After listening to three podcasts in a row, I can’t remember which one mentioned an smartphone app that can be used to decide what lights would be best for your shop.
Do any of you know what the name of that iphone app is?
