Shop Talk Live 45: Taking the Fun Out of Fine Woodworking
This week we welcome our new editor, Tom McKenna onto the show, and get the scoop on his background, where we're going, and more. Plus, we tackle a variety of woodworking questions this week--beginning with tips on working with furniture-grade plywood, and moving on to bandsaw wisdom, how dumpster diving can get you into trouble, and more.
Should we Straighten Up?
Finally, we admit to perhaps getting a little too goofy from time-to-time on the show, after a listener complains of too much humor. That said, a bit of fun helps make the time go by that much faster. Is it true? Do we need to stick to woodworking technique and steer clear of the gentle jibes, subtle humor and inside tidbits that make the show what it is? We try an experiment with the introduction of a brand new segment at the end of the show that might just "take the fun out of Fine Woodworking."
