Hello everyone,

First of all, a big hearty thanks for all the wonderful questions that were submitted for Shop Talk Live a couple weeks back. We answered several and still have a few left over for this week.

That brings me to my next question: It looks as though we’ll be having woodworker/actor Nick Offerman (NBC’s Parks & Rec) on the podcast this saturday, as he (and I of course) will both be attending Fine Woodworking Live on the campus of SUNY New Paltz.

If anyone has any questions specific to Nick (particularly regarding his techniques for building with slab wood as featured in the magazine) please forward them to

We may also have Chris Becksvoort on (I’m hoping) so a few Shaker-related questions are A-OK as well.

Cheers all!

If Chris shows up, ask about Shaker hardware.

What materials did the Shakers actually use? Forged iron for hinges? Wood for knobs? Handles?

What styles did the Shakers actually use? H hinges? Mushroom knobs?

Where to find today? Is anyone selling good reproductions?
