Topic tags/keywords: fine woodworking podcast shop talk live

Hello everyone,

I’ll be brief.

I’m the fellow in charge of Fine Woodworking’s biweekly podcast, Shop Talk Live. Every week we answer questions posed by readers of the magazine and I’m currently preparing for this Friday’s recording (for Saturday release).

I’m just in search of woodworking related questions to pose to my fellow editors on behalf of the woodworking community during the podcast.

Should any of you have anything you’d like answered, we’d love to see the questions:) You can email them to:

shoptalk@taunton.com

Many thanks and best to you all,

-Ed

Well, I’ll jump in here.
A discussion on fasteners would be appropo. Screws (what type), nails, brads, dowels, glue types.
Whacha think?
Lots of applications, yet little general info about what works the best for the particular app.

Bill: Thanks much – I’m adding that to the potential list:)

Chris: EXCELLENT idea. I’ve got to look into this. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it earlier. There are a couple of podcasts I currently listen to that are on the platform. I’ll definitely be checking it out! Thanks!

There are a couple more in there but I can’t recall at the moment – don’t have my iPod on me:)

I’d like to hear a piece about the established and upcoming boutique handplane makers. Or handtools makers, for that matter. Blue Spruce, BadAxe, etc. There are some incredible ones around now, many of which I’ve never heard of, I’m sure.

A finishing topic would be good for a podcast … soft woods, hard woods, open pores, closed pore …

Hide glues are becoming more popular. Lots of legend and lore there for a podcast.

Ok, here goes, how do they bend the handrails on stairs? Always wanted to know this.

I have noticed a relative absence of information on the web regarding bedroom dresser construction. I am building an arts and crafts bedroom set, and would love to hear about joinery options. The dressers will have 1.75” square legs, with divider frames between the drawers ( so you see only 3/4” edge grain between drawers). Specifically I would like to know how to join the divider frames to the legs.
In the past, I have used faceframes which hide joinery well. Since I don’t want to see the joint, dados and sliding dovetails are out. I am debating among mortise and tenon, face frame size biscuits, and pocket hole screws.
Thanks,
Willie Sandry

How to improve on jointer push paddles? See my submission to Methods of Work on this topic.

Why Adam Carolla?

I have seen him on either HGTV or DIY or some other show like that.

IMO he has little to contribute to woodworking and his comedy is lacking.

I would like to see one on fasteners too. There so many options today including some badly made ones!
