 Shop Talk Live 12: Special Guest Nick Offerman

On this week's edition of Fine Woodworking's very own podcast, we answer your woodworking questions as we record from Fine Woodworking Live, the magazine's first-ever live event.

Special Guests Including Woodworker/Actor Nick Offerman
Although he is perhaps best known for portraying the deadpan Ron Swanson on the NBC's hit sitcom, Parks & Recreation, Nick Offerman is a diehard woodworker. We'll be grabbing him ahead of his appearance at Fine Woodworking Live to answer questions and talk shop. Plus, Nick is joined on the show by one of his favorite FW contributors: Christian Becksvoort

Woodsyman Woodsyman writes: Nice listening. Here is my problem. I need to stop playback periodically and every time I stop it, it starts back up from the beginning. Very annoying. Need to be able to pause these podcasts and start again from the paused point. Also, it would be nice to fast forward through some of that stuff I've already listened to after attempting to pause. Fix these and you'll get the coveted 5 star rating. Thanks.

MisterBear MisterBear writes: Regarding the safety of polyethylene glycol (PEG) in filling wood, polyethylene glycol is is not ethylene glycol (antifreeze stuff), and is non-toxic. It is used medically as a laxative, and if you have had a colonoscopy, you have probably drunken it in the "prep". If softening at 100 degrees or so is undesirable in your application, you could try a higher molecular weight.

I have a new Android 4.0 ICS tablet - but can't seem to find Shoptalk Live no matter how I search.

My podcast viewer is DoubleTwist

How do I subscribe to STL?

Thanks for any help...

I bought H-hinges and a couple latches for a version of Mike P's Chimney cupboard - quite nice for the $$. Come with black screws, too.

There were humanitarian concerns as well in terms of ambulances, ships for food and medicine and building materials for reparations. Not everything was used for bombs or bullets.

Sorry about the delay on the streaming link. I had a two hour drive back from FW Live - arrived home to find a sick baby that pretty much kept us up all night. Ugh.

Anyhow, enjoy the show!!!

Best,

Hopefully direct link will be posted later today...

Ed.. its great you post on iTunes for those that use it - but there are at least some (one?) of us that won't 'touch it with a 10' pole' - so please keep up the FWW direct links!
