On today’s weekend show, we’re talking about a bunch of stuff as we are grabbing a whole bunch of email questions.
What Are We Talking About
What would you say are the quintessential wood working furniture projects that one could build and be able to say “If I can build these, I can build anything”?
What temperature extremes (cold and/or hot) do you three gents call it quits for woodworking outdoors?

Hello Marc et al, I’m hoping you are willing since I know you are able, to help me with this. I purchased some cherry for a project. As I am milling it I find a fair amount of sap wood and other parts that aren’t as cherry colored as I would like. I hopefully will be able to find enough color match that I like but I got to thinking about the wood set aside. I understand cherry is photo reactive, Shannon correct me here if I got the term wrong. Does cherry darken all the way from the heart to the xylem and phloem? Will the sap wood darken if so to what shade? If not is there a way to color it? Would you try to even out the colors? Now wooden shoe rather be woodworking? Thanks so much
Since Marc has moved back into the lands of seemingly unending winter, he now has to heat his shop. What do you guys use to heat your shops? And sawdust, we all produce a lot of it, have you guys looked into using it as a heat source?
Hi Marc, Shannon, and Matt. How do you handle and dispose of left over solvents like paint thinner, alcohol and lacquer thinner. After cleaning bushes I usually have a quart mixing cup that is 1/3 full of nasty looking solvent. Do you dump them into a gallon container and bring a mixed solvent container to local hazmat center? Just curious.
I know each of you consider yourselves content creators as well as woodworkers. But if you weren’t a woodworker, what kind of content would you create?
If you could only get one would you get a Domino or a mortising machine.
