Shop Talk Live 30: Super-Smooth Handplane Tips
On this week's edition of Shop Talk Live, we offer up a sneak preview of Fine Woodworking Live 2013, with news that show-goers may have the option of participating in a "Build-Off." Plus Mike Pekovich and Asa Christiana explain handplane iron angles, the benefits of jointer/planer combo machines, and why a 4-in. jointer just doesn't belong in a woodworking workshop.
Brand New Shop Stumper
Also this week, we debut a brand new audio Shop Stumper. Here's the deal: if you can identify the woodworking-related sound I played on the air, send an email to email@example.com, with "Shop Stumper" in the subject line." We'll randomly select one listener, from among all the correct answers received, to be the recipient of a brand-spankin' new set of Rockler Bench Cookies!
The winner will be announced during STL Episode 31. Please note: DO NOT post your answer in the blog comment section below. Any answers posted their will automatically be disqualified. Email only, folks.
