Hi Shawn thanks for the invite back into your shop. Loved the long sander you made up.I’m going to make one or 2 to use up the paper from my drum sander , Great idea simply made. There is a reason why you cannot thicknees short thin wood like your doing and I’m sure older wiser wood workers will show you how to do it saftley. i like that you leave your bloopers in so that the begginers can work out what went wrong and what they should do to avoid to making the sam mistakes

Pay attention, kids! This is how not to do woodworking!

As a new woodworker I am bound to make mistakes, and I make a lot of them. I am not always going to do things the proper way because I am still learning the proper way. I decided to do this podcast not to teach but to let new woodworkers learn from my mistakes. I always welcome constructive criticism. Constructive criticism helps me and the woodworking community grow and learn. We are all here to improve our skills. Negative criticism does nothing for the community and really has no place here.
So keep the constructive criticism coming.

Hi Shawn I agree with you 100 percent, we can all learn something from each other. Your shows have given me some great ideas on woodworking, and also show that you dont need a huge shed full of expensive equipment and 30 years of experience to make some pretty nice projects, as you have done.
I have been a hobby woodworker for a lot of years now and have made a lot of the same mistakes as you, and I believe you have done the right thing by leaving them in your show for others to learn from.
Thanks again for your time and effort in producing this show.

Have your say...
