I don’t know how many folks are aware of our little audio podcast, Wood Talk Online, but I figured I would post it here at Lumberjocks once in a while. The show usually contains industry news, voicemails, sweet deals, community happenings, and a whole lot of “shop talk”. We also do the show live and have a bustling chat room that tends to distract us now and then. :) Check it out!

This week, we have a special guest host with us: Rick Waters from the The Splintered Board Podcast and The Sawdust Chronicles.

What’s on the Bench:
Rick is working on his workbench. Matt is busy caressing his new Steel City granite-topped tablesaw, and Marc is sharpening his tools and complaining about it the whole time.

We have a great roundtable audio clip from the folks at Popular Woodworking magazine concerning the new format due out in March. We are VERY excited about this!
