Sean and Trevor both have suggestions for a cheap alternative to Marc’s fancy bench matt. A yoga matt or this silicon crafter’s matt.
We all make joinery mistakes and the guys talk about their most boneheaded joinery mistakes and how they fixed them. Plus they talk about some pretty common joinery issues like:
- Tenon too small or too large
- Gappy joints
- Inconsistent dado/groove depth
- Sliding dovetail too tight
