« Part 4: David Marks, Michael Cooper, Peter Brown, Ray Mowder, & Zac Higgins!!! Part 5 of Behind the scenes of my shop and YouTube channel series Part 6: THE WOOD WHISPERER, Chad Shimmel, Ty Moser, and Sun City West »

BIG NEWS on my west coast interview tour! I contacted Marc Spagnuolo, aka The Wood Whisperer, and he agreed to let me meet with him for an interview!

I heard from him just this morning and he said we can meet on Wednesday. I would really appreciate your input!!!

Please let me know, what would you say to Marc if you were given the opportunity to meet with him one on one?

I go into a bit more detail in my most recent update video (below).

In the video I also talk about meeting Braxton Wirthlin, Chris Kerschner, Bill Livolsi, and Matthew Morris.

AND I also talk about the fact that I am staying in the house where Van Morrison recorded some of his biggest songs!!

One thing I forgot to mention in the video is that I stopped by my LJ Buddy Mark Wilson’s house when I first arrived in the LA area last week. Unfortunately, it was late and I didn’t have a lot of time to stay, but it was great to meet Mark and to see his cool turnings right up close!

Ask if he would prefer the Saw Stop versus his Power Matic. I chose Power Matic and I am OK with it. I see a trend of video woodworkers having a Saw Stop; which makes me wonder….

I’ve followed Marc from the beginning. He’s done it all and is the model for YouTube woodworking. I’d ask him what more does he hope to accomplish?

When you told me Van Morrison Lots of music went off in my head! LOL! Did the walls whisper? It pays to have friends like Marc Laub who you should interview when you get back?

Like Klaus said “Take some beer and let him talk…” but make sure its a beer he likes???? :<)

Last but not least we have more snow and blizzard back home. Oh yeah it’s going to be in the teens for the next five days.

IMHO I hate to see INK all over someone who is trying to talk to me.
It is very distracting.
I know I am old and crotchety..
PS i purchased his shop apron and love it.
