Hey guys – I was a guest on a couple of podcasts last week (I am way behind on timely blog entries.)
First, I joined LJ member Marc Spagnuolo at the WoodWhisperer Guild. You need to be a member to access this podcast where we talk about doing built-ins. We cover several of the techniques, strategies and things to look for as you design and install a built-in project.
If you are on the fence about if you should join the Guild or not, I will say that as a person that makes my living out of the shop, Marc gives great information and I endorse his guild program. (No – he did not pay me to say that but I expect delivery of a new truck from him any day now.)
A couple of days later I joined the guys from the Modern Woodworkers Association on their podcast. The Modern Woodworkers Association is the combined effort of the following guys (in no particular order):
Their podcasts are open for public consumption and they cover all things woodworking. In this episode they talk about the Woodworking In America shows and some general happenings in the world of woodworking. I come in about 17:45 where you can see me looking like a tecnnoboob as I try to figure out how to connect with these guys.
After that we talk about the museum exhibition where I have my prairie chandelier on display, not sleeping to get it done, and the 5 questions they ask all of their guests. You will find out if I prefer thongs or boxers and we also talk about my sharpening techniques that really upset the “woodworking establishment.”
I just watched the video and, even though I participated in it a few days ago, I was surprised at how many gold nuggets there were in the information we cover. I actually spill the beans and share the secret to successful woodworking!
I really had a great time with these guys and I was still energized the next couple of days after talking with them. I hope you enjoy the video and get something useful out of it.
Be sure to catch them this Wed at 9 p.m. EST for their next podcast with guest Andy Chidwick. Andy is an LJ member also showing at the Museum of the Rockies fine woodworking exhibition in Bozeman, MT. He is a great craftsman and teacher so be sure to catch him or watch the video later at the Modern Woodworkers Association.
