Re: Shop Talk Live 17: Behind-the-Scenes at Lee Valley Tools

I to think the podcast without video is seriously flawed. It is way too difficult to sit in front of the computer listening to audio only and remain engaged the entire time. I think I miss about 50% of the content as my mind begins to wander. Woodworkers have creative minds that need stimulation. Some like to pretend that they can listen wile performing another task. But it simply is not possible. It is just background noise till you move your focus back to what is being said. I would like to think the folks at FWW would value there efforts a bit more than allowing them to becoming background noise.

What is the issue regarding keeping the video?

Is there a way to receive emails when posts are made to this topic?

I would love to go. But, with a baby on the way money is tight.

Re: Post and Beam Blanket Box

Nice work. I love the deep color. What is the finish? I see there is some slight splotching on the front. Does it stand out much in real life? I love cherry. But it is always a crap shoot with the splotch.

Re: Shop Talk Live: Episode 2

Where should I go to find future episodes of Shop Talk live? I spent about ten minutes browsing the site and could not find it under any of the categories. I did not recall the name of the show so I finally found it via searching for the keyword podcast.

Re: Huge advances in woodworking technology

Correction:

"Now with the new head 3/4" is really pushing it"

Should have read.

Now with the new head 3/4 of a revolution is really pushing it.

Re: Huge advances in woodworking technology

I just installed a Shelix head in my Dewalt 735. I am a bit disappointed. With the original HSS blades. I could remove a full revolution of the crank handle worth of 6-8" wide oak in a single pass. I think it is just over 1/16". Now with the new head 3/4" is really pushing it. Then the worst part is. Anything but the lightest pass results in a board that is thicker in the center than at the edges. There is so little steel in the head that it flex's. So a narrow board of about 4" that is sent through the planer either on the far right or far left side of the planer will result in a board. That is .010" thicker on one side than the other. Can anyone else confirm this? I have checked the planers bed with a precision strait edge. There is a .002" depression in the center of it. But this does not account for the .010" tapper I am getting.

Re: Surprise landing: Stanley's new Sweetheart chisels have arrived

If you look at the two photos in the Amazon link below. It looks like they are marketing the Bailey version as Sheffield steel with other components made "globally". Perhaps the leather roll and wood handles?

Re: Tommy MacDonald and WGBH pursue a new woodworking show

If you can tame Tommy's ego, I think he will make a great host. I think that aspect of Tommy's personality is a bit off putting to many woodworkers. Who are mostly a humble lot.

Focus on the nitty gritty of woodworking without skipping all the details. Woodworkers want to follow along and "live vicariously" in order to build confidence and motivation. See The WoodWisperer for a solid format.

I don't know if they have the pocketbook for something like this. But I think this is a great opportunity for Woodcraft or Rockler because they can represent all of the tool manufacturers instead of just one mega manufacturer. This will eliminate the need to tailor the projects to showcase any particular manufacturers machines.
