How Camp Anneewakee Systematically Skirted State Inspections
"Thank once maybe twice a year people from the state would come out to do like an inspection or something. This is terry a former patient at the ana wakey campus in rock mart. The all girls facility. She remembers her time. How the staff would handle visits from state agencies. That were meant to check on the treatment center and how it operated with anna wakey now being a licensed medical facility. It had to be recorded the patients who were getting the proper treatment. They were supposed to and i remember the first time when they came out they picked like three of us. Girls should be the one to answer any questions and so they took the rest of the group like way way out into the woods like a mile out into the woods. And i can remember when the first inspector lady came. One of the group leaders told her. The girls are out on a work project about a mile out in the woods. I guess they just knew that the inspector probably wanting to hike out a mile that we were available though there were like three of us and we were told even before the inspector came if they asked if we met with a psychiatrist to let them know that we did and that we had thirty to forty five minutes sessions at this point in time in a wiki was sold to the parents of its patients largely as a medical treatment center with daily therapy in. Reality this therapy was greatly exaggerated often amounting to no more than a few minutes at most within actual therapist. I don't think my parents realized until. I got out that i really didn't get the help that i needed. We would see a psychiatrist. I i want to say once a week might have been every other week we would literally like get an a line and go one after the other and you only get a few minutes and they were just right on a clipboard in they would literally look at the clock and say okay.

"wood" Discussed on Wood Talk
"To get hired later if you can say. I'm a graduate of this program or that program rather than working for ten years. And no i don't know i don't really have a certification or anything to show from. It means certainly a lot of people. There's a lot of people out there in that situation who have been hired. But if you're new to this and like wanna get a job a cabinet shop or a mill shop or something like that being able to say i'm a graduate of this program or that program will get your foot in the door and i speaking specifically because that's what we're doing right now is doing a lot of hiring in the cove world. We had a lot of layoffs. And unfortunately we've had to now not unfortunately fortunately had a higher a lot more p- back and some people weren't available so we're actively hiring and that's one of the things we look for as no just working in a garage or i watched it on. Youtube doesn't really fly when you're looking to bring this person injured already up and running production environment and one other thing is don't like if you do a program like this. Don't totally ignore the stuff that you could find online. They're still great resources out there One trap of formal education. Is you go through a system and that system teaches you away. There's other there are other ways. And i've had experiences with people who have that formal education who truly believe. There's only one right best way to do something. And that's not the case right so i think if you go through that always tried to keep that open mind of other people's methods for doing things And you could certainly discuss those with your instructors. But i think it's good to keep an open mind. Remember that there are always multiple ways to get things done. Good point Dan emailed this and said i recently fallen down the hand plane rabbit hole in watching restoration videos a lot. Make them look new and shiny. But what if. I just need them to work and not be pretty. Does the other stuff make a difference. This is a great question because it does seem lately that the restoration thing has been to not restore it to work but restored so that it looks like it just got out of the box and if that's your thing cool but if you just wanna make it work now it doesn't have to the things you need to pay attention to are the actual like the moving parts and the plane in function. Where the wood shavings go anywhere where there's going to be would shaving content contact through the mouth you know Crossed the blade over the chip breaker across the lever cap. All that does need to be pretty. It needs to be polished so that it won't catch shaving and caused things to clog. Certainly the soul of the plane does need to be well maybe not pretty but wanted to be flat and in the process of getting it flat. You're probably gonna make it pretty but you know typical bench plane. The sidewalls aren't really used. So if there's some patina there's as long as it's not active rust blooms that are going to continue to eat your plane. You're fine The japan the paint. That's on the top. That is there to help prevent rust. So if you have chipping paint in certain places you need to be conscious at least pay attention to it But if the naba the toad is kind of as long as functions okay and it's not broken shifting around on you perfectly fine Yeah so think about rust and think about the function of the plane. And if you find. The plane is not functioning properly. Maybe you didn't go far enough in making it pretty you might be having some clog points or some pitch points or some out of flat points but other than that. Get back to work as soon as possible. That's always been my philosophy. Good.

It just gets a little soggy and doesn't taste the same though. I usually prefer the oven. and. Make sure the nails are out of the woods to. Know Ferris objects in there at the same time, you'll know real quick radiofrequency drying is essentially this if you buy. Vacuum kilns are big thing but a lot of atkins combine RF vacuum kilns. So you're you're bombarding the would with waifs, right? They are microwaves or longer slower radio waves and what that's doing is exciting the molecules inside the wood and essentially heating it up, and that's what am I. GonNa Wave Does it pretty much what you get that that wonderful kind of super bike lava hot center. In that in that hop pocket. Hold it. Right next to it. Right. Right. Next to the call so. that. That's what's happening..

"Like yellow paint. This is SHELLAC. This is yelling me and then I started kind of. Reverse engineering, retracing my steps, and and I realized that I had not waited I. Gone mixed it like a volume metric thing. I applied a little I. Put a little powder. Let me back up normally when I do flakes I figured out. If I if I fill the flakes to a certain level in the Mason Jar, and then I. Fill it up with alcohol that ends being one just like it's so simple ratio. Action many. Many many times making one cut in the same Mason Jar. I know that if I put this this line I even have sharpie on their fish lakes to the flakes to this line filled up with alcohol one time cut I stupidly did the same thing. Well think about it flakes. Versus flour and I still don't know what the ratio what it was, but it was like eight or ten pound guys yeah, so yeah. I use totally ruined the project and stupidly again because it was well, it's done Williams. He's talking about he does know what he's talking about for the record. I'm the in this situation. So the second coke went on, and that was when I had to put the brakes and realize there was really nothing I can do. I had to take it back to the raw wood. There was just the I could not think of any fixed. There was no. Let's grab alcohol and try to dilute it no. No that didn't work I mean at that point. If you even just getting off the surface with alcohol, it just kind of becomes a slushy mess. You know you're just gonNA. Wipe it and rub it around. Getting it off would take probably a gallon of alcohol. Yeah, so I. Grab some hand lanes, which also this project happens to be the first time that I've had to reverse a high glue joint. Because it was, it was easier because SHELLAC powder. I mean it was almost like instead of I was using slack. It was like it was using a DI. Di is finely ground pigment in some sort of solution in when the solution flashes off. You're left with the dirt on the surface. So this was the same like the the inside corners crevices were like fluorescent yellow. This terrible so I actually heated up the high glue and removed a couple of pieces off the front of the clock and everything just like you get in there with a hand lane and clean off. It was a mess it was. The was the nuclear option of just remove it all. Go back to the raw wood and.

"You know every three years like you said sure, and for some people that's enough. They just want a utility and I sometimes get customers when they wanNA piece of furniture bill. To table something simple, not real fancy, and it's like okay. I can build that that. Am I gonNa love building, right. You know you still do it because that's what the customer wants. And you hope to talk them into other fancy stuff, so let's go to things that you've built If somebody's at a dinner party with you, and you say no, I'm Mark Spagnolo. I'm woodworker. They go. Show me a piece. What are you gonNA show him. Oh. Let's see I I. Don't really consider myself a really good designer in in a sense like a lot of people. They Wanna get their own style. They want to build furniture. That looks distinctly their own, which is really really hard to do. I've kind of come around to the the sort of mentality that I'm. My legacy won't be the designs that I've come up with. It'll be my teaching so I can just build whatever I wanNA build and build things that I find challenging or fun, and maybe put my own spin on it, so I would actually. If I'm trying to impress people, I would show them pieces that I think are visually the most impressive in one of those would be something like a loose rocker all right I. I can't do much improve what? What Sam Aloof did with chairs, but I sure could have fun building one now. They may not even know who Sam Aloof is. They may not have ever seen a sculpted rocker that I would show them this and say it's not my design. This is a Sam Malouf designed a piece, but check out the the way this is sculpted. Check out the way these curves work, and that's very imp- impressive piece to show people if they've never senior work before. That kind of lets them know. Excuse me the caliber of what you know. What kind of woodworker you are and I've got a bunch of other pieces, a lot of the most I feel the most visually impressive things that I've made happen to be seating chairs chairs I think are a little bit of a next level woodworking project so typically. That's the things I would I would bust out any chair that I made Nice Nice. You mentioned Sam Aloof. Take us through some of your other. influences. Who out there today? do you pull inspiration from? Of course, my my mentor David Marks is probably an will always be the biggest influence in my woodworking. That's kind of what got me into a into woodworking the first place when I got out of college I was like anti would so grown up in in new. Jersey, we had a house that had a lot of wood paneling at Oak Wood paneling that was stained. So I grew up thinking of wood and wood furniture as anything that was either pine or stained Oak, and I was not a fan. I was just like this. This is not what I want in my home, so everything was like metal and glass in my apartment when when I finally was able to get my own furniture. So to be so inspired to not only want wood furniture, but to want to build something would. It's a big deal and it was really. David marks designs seeing the things he made using some exotics. That is what kind of made me go. WHOA! WHOA WHOA this. This is not my mom's furniture here. This is a whole different ballgame. So, I got super excited about. That aspect of it. So then, the David Mark Stuff of course is is a huge influence. Then you dig back a little bit and you go okay I like David Marks. But who was he influenced by? And you go back and see you know. The work of James Curnow the work of Sam Bluef- and you can go back steps even further beyond that and and find you know seeds of inspiration for for people who are creating furniture today these days a lot of times. You know it's my instagram. Feed I follow a lot of talented individuals on Instagram, and some of them, I have the pleasure of working. Working with Phillip Morley A, he does great work. We got him in the guild as an instructor. Jewelry Birmingham is also fantastic woodworker you know even even my close friends. People like Shannon Rogers at the Renaissance Woodworker Matt Cremona at while he's macaroni everywhere, so he doesn't have a goofy name for what he does other than his own. AM so like it's just what the the other people who were kind of doing what I do. They also influenced me these days, but the thing is sometimes I feel guilty for not going back enough levels right so I'll go back I look at David and. Who did who influenced DAVID SO GO BACK TO CRA Nov you go. There's a couple of their names in there that I can't recall But how far back can you go to find out like in spires Sam Aloof you know was. It was like the work of a what's his name S Rick? I, believe who who who got Sam to start to. sculpt two different pieces of wood to make them almost look organic like they're all like they are joined at a right angle or some angle close to a right angle, but somehow they're sculpted in a way that they almost look like one piece of wood. Where did that idea come from and I? Kind of feel guilty that we don't always go back deeper to find out and credit. Those other people who inspired the people that are inspiring us. And with the Internet being what it is a huge collectively between all of us, we get to watch. People work whereas you know in the distant past..

"Creative cloud description. Then you know my netflix subscription and. I don't want another subscription and I panicked me because I have come to rely upon that as our Porsche design modeling tool. In which case I suppose I should just pony up and get the subscription, but yeah. It might be at opportunities. Have learned something else. Yeah it's. It's a challenge. I think for a few people who actually use. It's going to be disappointing. You know if they can't four free take this. and. Manipulate it and do all the changes. They WANNA make to it on, but I don't I. Do not think the sketch file is necessary. Just think about every plan that's ever been distributed pre two thousand six, and they will never come with a digital model that you could play around with. That's not the way things where you play every project in a magazine. Absolutely no. It's an exploded drawing an parts list. and. Interesting I would like I'm looking for a blog post or something that explains these new prices. I, don't see anything. Where when did this come up? I got an email about it. Okay. To dig that up I'm trying to even think how I got on their email lists to tell you the truth, but. Yeah googling like new schedule pricing must seeing anything on new pricing. Maybe there was such an uproar that. Backpedal backpedal change. Change their mind. I doubt it because. There's gotta be enough uproar about. The current web version, and how hard that his actually get anything done with that Committed this whole big subscription model thing. Okay! That's pretty cool. Good question though. Not Me. That's me, okay. Hi! From will says when I lived in Pennsylvania. My father in law had a really nice shop with all the bells and whistles anytime he wants to do. What working shop was at my disposal, as I started getting more and more into woodworking I'm find myself, wow. I find I'm getting tired of Ham Planning and joining everything star. Shannon. Join everything. He's GonNa. Planer I've in the market the purchase either join to replenish foreshadowing i. have time deciding whether I want to stop face planning or whether. Whether, I want square boards. I know both joint planner have their benefits, but if you have one as the first big tool purchase, which will be the most of my would get as rough Saad. I'm GonNa say Planer because that seems like edge joining aboard a lot less work than face planning. Like, that's a serious. My time saving and you can edge joint with the. Tools you have. A router with the straight edge, get your most of the way there and assuming fairly proficient already with ham planes. If their rider edge isn't totally perfect, you can get you closer with the whatever plane you have. Come. But. Definitely a plainer on that one. Show all right next one here. Actually. Our last one today is from Ray Ray Gilmore. He says I was perusing the worst for Guild Group Age, the other day and found an interesting question Ryan Lund was needing to build an archway for his wife. From Cedar is Cedar capable of being bent to a point of at least making ninety degree arc, so that you can connect to together to make one eighty degree arc. I've never really paid attention to how manufacturers do this type of thing. Could you make a panel and just a range the arts and cut the ARCS in the least wasteful way? How was this done? So I can't answer how this is done necessarily. has done several different ways. Just going to cover a few guys if you can think of another way that I didn't list here, let me know. So of course, if you need to make that bend, you could Stephen Cedar Wood. Steam Bend just fine. How severe the bend while go! Watch my video on my adventures in steam bending. It's it's quite quite an experience. Let's that way. Learning what the would will tolerate. How to pre treat the would if you do it, all using air dried versus kiln dried. There's a lot to it. But I've seen some insane. Ben's that people do when they know what they're doing. So I I would think it perfectly possible for them to to make that bend. One hundred eighty degrees into two portions I don't think that should be a problem at all. Bent lamb nation is of course. Another option you you saw the would into submission, and then it will take just about any shape you could possibly want. Laminate need a band saw ideally, if you have a planner or better yet, drums standard to get those little lamb nations nice and cleaned up, and you put them all together with glue between each layer. Your shape and you're done. You mentioned cutting from a solid panel. That's my least favorite. I mean most of the problem I have with that his green direction, so if you have a panel where the grain one runs, one way, and you've got an arc. That's making a hundred eighty degree turn. You're going to have some week. Portions of that trim material where the grange just like directly across perpendicular to the material itself. It's going to be very weak. It also probably will look very good always better like when the green actually can follow shape you're making. Tends to look better in its stronger. So as a alternative to that in easy way I think an easy let not not the easiest, but it's easier than some of the other methods is to do a segmented. The I was gonNA say segmented ring. It's not a full ring, but you basically break up the shape into segments as many as is required for you to to connect a bunch of straight boards with miter cuts on the ends to Kinda build the shape, and then once you have this rough thing together. Then you take a template or whatever it. plopped that on top and make your arch cut out of it. So you know most of the time I think. If you look at like millworker or something, you're probably going to see the segmented version done a lot of the time. Yeah, what's Nice about that? Is it kind of like? It's not perfect rain continuity as it goes around, but it's definitely better than the panel method..

"Now nine and make them to the artisans who used them and really anything in between remembered reflect those of anyone working with wood so pull up a chair and join us and today I wanNA introduce you to Gloria Wilson of Milwaukee Woods cereals and what it's like to sell her items that gift shows and gatherings we will also attempt to describe what you do but I think you should describe what you do it joy that I get is making something out of something that maybe someone threw away it's funny you say that for for the longest time when I was a younger woodworker more and more woodworkers and in my later years I have really discovered the joy is that part important to you it's it's really important to me our outings were going to the city dump and you pick up something that worked and so I kind of always carried that with me just kind really do some very fine work so how did you get started in wood then as I got older I got a job company and they started to offer a program for women to bad deal so I I took that and I absolutely loved it now we're sitting in Oregon and then moved here in the battleground Richfield so let's talk about the items that you build sometimes I'll see something like I want to show and Packwood and I thought well it also Kinda neat so I'd bring him home in a new dish you know CNC out it's your ideas just kind of just kind of happen and it's like is all that would is so beautiful and and you can't buy that anymore the old for an old plywood ideas are they're always changing it's it's never really the same so I want yeah go ahead and play your website if you want I my dot com do you do you post on Instagram instagram's well and in the creation toy what that means so I really liked that because that's kind of who I am I just I love to make things and it may be I've built a lot of earns for people and aid and just kind of happens do you do a lot of commission work fathers and it was it was hard process because you can you know from start to finish maybe maybe I should use the word not hard but emotional it is very very much you do get that way but the one for a family member Oh yeah let's cue that one that one is so as far as woodworking there's there's so many I mean I've erling engine that's not really woodworking but it's it's in the trade of machining nations in my shop in it was one of the most amazing projects engineers gorgeous yeah it's really that's a very the team but yeah when hi school robotics team and I get a lot of joy out of that the main focus I mean they take time to do a lot of community building a project working with kids at the Middle School at my son's Oh fine you know watching these kids you know the spark in there is she was the robotics team over in Oregon and I it kind of incorporating it into the design build process and we're meet the dog this week and kind of see where their efforts are going and twenty five pounds so so it's going to be an interesting kind of going through videos and seeing what other people are doing but it's also helping that's going to be the best that's great because you know the design process she's a huge you don't I did figure it out yeah sometimes it works it and I must say there is a decided lack of sawdust anywhere evidence and and it's you know it's I I will say I did clean up most of it I do like like building displays and things like that I'll Amaral those years and so I was able to apply what I learned in light years and the CNC and I'm going to be f it it's such a perfect medium unranked sometimes I do if there's a logo or something I need share of course any kind of expansion is or any sort of new tools coming in you know like I I could probably upgrade table saw but you know it's it's blade and and that's kind of what I like about it to douse safety blade on it and gas got a good good diablo blade on there and I and I I would like to have a bigger laser the laser I do have wow that is yeah but it has opened side so I'd rather have a a two by three with one hundred that's kind of what it's it works great for what you're working on and then you go oh I should have bought a little bit bigger so hopefully taking steps I need to get the one that fits the best yeah Asian and go by people's opinions in what their experiences are boss has been great customer service so tell me about some of the projects you're working on right now well gearing the new thing they're a little display for bamboo out of the old vintage plywood just a lot of the view your is it your biggest sales it is yeah it's it's it's crazy mark it's it's it's not work though for me going inserting don't we all don't now I've talked to a couple of people that sell in the solar situations aw admire it some of them by some of just walk on by sure tell I get a lot of joy out of watching people pick up something that have with people and sharing the passion of woodworking and no you probably initially it was like Oh man no one's GonNa during my gift yeah no that's one of the things that I've enjoyed about machine started making signs and Sigua can't have too many of these the SALOM I get so much more that I've I've sold stuff on it see and stopping ever do all these other things and it's a lot of running around and and there's like data yes they're ready to share it with and let's yeah it's fun and I so I'd like to be able to take that item that I made that I spent all this time as a gift or something like that and rather than just you know wrapping putting it or box writing oh this person is adopting saying and it just makes it feel you know ecorse on Luthier Work Down Angie being the tones of wood and how that how they make that sound is is little pieces matters and you wouldn't think it'd be like because if I build a sounds science yes fascinating I love to do that but yes kind of five years ago it was from a cat but I still had to do a lot of work golfs yeah that's one of my bucket list items was when I I told myself when had pamphlet tyler finds something around either side of half to build that you would rather not right it's it's what I want to build and what I is to be as I can choose not to yeah yeah I think what I was what I was trying to frame money in my pocket yeah and again it's not about the money so much either and But I still I enjoy that because you're always changing it's a nostalgic thing as well because a lot of times you know it's it's a law that is an emotional decision so I get a lot that's GonNa go off and be actually be functional and appreciated yeah now with Sir I haven't done any of those but this really.

"Part of this was because I used to live in Arizona and it was like no matter. You got a few days before that thing just loses all moisture and it doesn't matter In Denver it's also very dry. So Am I just in a unique situation that I can continue to build things With no repercussions and I just get decent. Would from a supplier try to mill evenly on both sides and hope for the best to am. I setting myself. Up Disaster for not testing. The would I don't think so. I think you're fine. I think that that getting a moisture meter is like when you start to tie your own. Flies fly fishing. It's not necessary. Just a whole lot at whole snake. You'll be just fine. You know and maybe ignorance is bliss in that particular case. Yeah well anything. I'm willfully ignorant of this one. I know what testing does I know. I know how to do it and I even have the tool to do it. I just haven't seen enough of a reason to do it. You know unless I've gotten something from different supplier that suspicious or like some dude pulls up in front of the House and goes I got one once I like. Well I should probably see what the status of this stuff is before building their house. Honey come from what we say wearing trench coats. I think it's it's It's definitely a double edged sword because it does make you more aware of like that would is always changing moisture content. And I think for sure it'll teach you this fact this because something is you know. Killed writer air dried two percent. All the means that one point is life was that that percentage? It doesn't mean anything that is still is at the percentage so as soon as it comes out of the kill whatever sins are picking up moisture again you kinda realise off a biased boy was kill android yesterday and it goes. Stick it in my shed. It was six percent came on the killing but in like three or four five weeks. Whatever it's at ten fifteen. I Dunno whatever. Your equilibrium is for that time of year. You'RE AT SO I. It's kind of an interesting play. Like you actually really start to understand a lot more about the would but I think most the time is not super necessary. Like the stuff that I do. I don't check my my would for its moisture content except what is drying. Because I know like the stuff I'm using is it's mostly all stored in the house. So it said indoor equilibrium. All the time. Yeah sure WANNA board as go. Grab them aboard. It's the same as the same content as a piece of furniture. I finished and it's been the house for five years so I don't have to worry about this but if you're doing wrong like production or you're doing you're buying stuff from a shed somewhere that has been sitting out for a while then you maybe you. WanNa consider it but if you're getting fresh stuff let's let's talk about like in. Mark's case I mean if you're building with the thought of would movement in mind seasonal in mind whether you have any season move or not it shouldn't matter you know unless you have dramatic differences like I'm working with thirty percent would you know moisture content on this would write. It really is long as you're thinking about this and building jaunary that will allow for expansion contraction. It shouldn't matter all that's kind of the way I see it and I think also the mill you're milling habits. You know. I try to. You know to tell people this all the time. As long as you are milling from both sides. You're kind of stacking the cards in your favor that as it loses additional moisture. It's going to do it in a way. That's fairly even on. Both sides may not always be great. But you know if you're only losing a couple of percentage points in terms of the moisture and you'd build it evenly on both sides. Chances are the ports going to kind of stay flat. I hope yeah. Yeah I mean from what I've seen. That's that's my personal experience. Yeah if you're within percents find new star getting like four or five six percent exactly it then starts getting like holy crap is piece. I cut that was expecting to be three in our like inches. Wide is now. Like five and seven eighths bumpers over the top of my head but like isn't as big as it was before or is bigger than it was before because it's always picked up moisture so. I think about it like if I did get a a load material from Austin hardwoods. It's my stuff and I did test it and I go. Well this is. This is at twelve percent little bit high. Maybe I should just wait long. I'M NOT GONNA wait. I got barely enough time to get done what I need to get done like I got other things to do. I guess books to sign waiting for it to dry eagles science and you know what I mean the loan. That's just going to build this thing. Things got to get done so I'm just going to be careful millet properly. And if it loses moisture shrinks a little bit then. It's going to do what it's going to do but I've yet to like. Hit a wall going crap. Wrap this could have been totally prevented by you. Know taking a moisture content. Reading at some point in this process rang if you're doing like DRAWER FRONTS INSET DRAWER FRONTS. It can be very beneficial You kind of know where you're at like how much GonNa get things like that. That could be. I think. That's one use case where it's like. I could see that being like a significant reason to actually check it. See No were going to go to a Muslim time. Like probably not matter whole lot. This'll good tangent us. All right so I think that really wraps up the show now. Here's the deal if you want to continue sending US questions Were not giving any guarantees about frequency or anything like that. We are shooting for a quarterly type schedule. But it would be great if we had some emails and things to pull from a lot of these emails. I pulled some from my Friday live questions. I don't know where you guys got yours. But these rapid yeah okay so the minute a year ago so the contact form for the scrap in the contact form has gone. But if you want to send us an email or send us voice memo will still play those if and when we do another show You can still send those two. We'll talk online at gmail.com.

"Not Bench shoulder plane is something that you're GonNa have far more use in Than definitely so sorry. Well look you guys. Don't like Jack which makes you crazy. So yeah hate them. Get A router plane. What's Lucia have all show on debating the the pros and cons of router planes versus shoulder planes? That'd be fun you'RE GONNA lose no most like most likely but still make. I'm going to make an effort and that's all I have a shoulder plane. I'm GONNA throw at. You are pretty heavy so all right Matt Europe. Oh from Kevin says. Hey Guys Kevin here from central Virginia. I have some stacks of lumber that had gone sticker distort a barn to air dry for three to four years. The barnes dry inside has good airflow. Now I'm ready to add some storage racks in the barn and get these piles off floor. Question is do. We need to maintain dickering when I moved to new racks. Some of US lumber will probably live there on the racks for several years. Before it's used. Thanks for your input. Now you do not need to. You can dry stack them. Which is Shannon is there? Is that like an actual term like without stickers sports together called dry stacking I've always called it did it stacking dead stacking okay. Mic Stack may be used to but dead stocking ally have heard I call it sticky stacking sticking stacking sixty six in fact if you go to the Patriots package of lumber update become a patron. You'll see a post for patrons only there the talks about dead stacking. See Now you can take my answer. Go Buy some more answers. Whatever you WANNA do answers for three or you can pay for the same answers. I think one of the the real risk because there are a lot of folks that try to keep that ventilation going as long as possible. The risk of keeping stickers in there for too long especially after it starts at a has become a drive a level as you can actually get sticker stain over time depending on what species. You're using the stickers themselves. You can actually end up getting stain and that is nasty stuff that goes deep into the board like. There's no amount of planning that. Were removed. Bad Sticker. Staying answer is cut it off so now your boys are only eighteen inches long and a quarter inch thick got her took that acord down. One quarter got rid of that. But yeah the stickers can be a problem over the long haul All right next question here from Robert. He says I'm doing my first. Bridle joint four inches wide. Maybe another eighth inch proud on the ends Concerned with getting the inside faces flat using my band saw in thinking about how to cut it a thought of cutting the pieces. Long and plunging. A mortis either with a mortar or router. And then cutting the end off. Would it be worth the effort or just a waste of time and my possibly overthinking the joint okay? I don't think you're over thinking this at all There is a particular piece that I've built a two of them actually a coffee table and a dining table that have fairly large bridle joints on there and one thing. I've discovered with doing that because with links to move if you are cutting very wide bridle joint. Let's say you're doing it either. I don't know maybe at the table saw you could do it as long as it's not too too deep maybe with like attending Jig What I found is when you make that cut even though you would think the tending Jagan the table saws like the more accurate way to nail this versus a band saw the increased curve with removes enough material that once you make that I cut. If there's any potential for movement in that board a can either starts a separate or fall in on itself and what happens when you do that it's no longer going to be an accurate cut. Excuse me so when you flip it around to make the second cut to complete the bridle joint if those pieces move closer together the two halves of that The cut that you just made. It's going to register incorrectly and you'RE GONNA wind up with this really whacked out crappy looking bridle joint. The reason I like to use the band saw here is because it's a thinner curve so I can make my to outside cuts to establish the wall and have it removed so much material that is going to cause a lot of movement there so I can actually get pretty true registration on news. I who cuts and then just remove the stuff in the middle and that's actually how I've gotten better results. That still depending on the temperament of the would you still may have a little bit of movement so it might not be perfect So the method you're describing if if you do some tests and you determined that the wood is not cutting very cleanly the blades no cutting clean enough or the would moving after the cut. You might consider what you're talking about if you can actually get the router through that piece and you have bits long enough to essentially make like a through Mortis it and then cut the end off. That would be a pretty good way because now the wood is intact on both sides. As you're making that mortis and that might be a cool trick to try it. So I'm going to say I'm going to give thumbs up on that method. It might be over thinking it might be overkill if I definitely think you should try though if you have determined that the other methods are not working in the woods you're using is kind of collapsing in on itself when you make those cuts so it might be worth a shot and I love the way you're thinking Because I never even thought about that method but that sounds like it could be a way to do it. That's all you know. I think we We the the lumber company I worked for bought a milk house and I've been spending a fair amount of time up there just as the marketing guy taking photographs and films and things and the door shop has one of those multi router Setups and as I'm thinking back because we actually have to build the rails and stiles. They're how should I put them? There almost composite were there glued together to create like false quarter sawn material. So you take a bunch of thinner strips and glue them on the quarter face and then skin them so you've got some sort of interior species that's glued together to make a quarter sawn very stable board and then like a three eighths inch scan on the outside to make it whatever species the door has so as they do all that stuff together then the next stage in the line is the multi router and they they cut mortices on everything and then it goes over to a chop saw and it cuts the end off now at hanging about it. I think that's what they're doing house. Cutting that long mortis and then cutting the end off to create the bridal because the bottom joints They use bridles on the What's it called the kick plate at the bottom of the really wide Rail of the bottom. I never thought about that. That's a good idea very cool. Good thinking very cool way to go. Robert this is from corky he attaching Freight fifth talking about changing. Face frames a few nails as possible suggestions. The show see. Here's a guy who hasn't heard. That nails are acceptable. Use As many people hails or bad more nails in his better. Yeah this is This is also interesting and this is a happy coincidence. Didn't mean for this to happen. But when I was at the Milwaukee House recently I was watching how they do it. Frankly one of the easiest things I mean isn't this one of the reasons. Biscuit joiner was invented joining plywood together and like joining stuff to ply white. You know Biscuit joiners fantastic but you was still depending upon the size of the face frame. You actually just a couple of you have to put a bunch of biscuits and to keep everything in line. The Milk House was up the other day they actually run of almost a full length curve and then they stick eight inch hardboard in that. Kirsch and they've got a jig setup on a on a plunge like track saw and it's just a it's basically a a like a bolt on base to track Sol. That's got blocks on either side so and sits on either side of the edge of that case and it is a nice flush fit. So it's really really stable and they just dropped the tracks all down plunged into the side of the case. Run the tracks all the length and then plunged back up and you end up with a really controlled way because you said the depth on the plunge saw to get a constant depth and then it just kind of them what shallows out of the end because of the curvature of the blade and it's real easy to just rip off along Strip of quarter-inch hardboard and just tap into place and it provides support on face frame along the entire length of the vase frame and it makes them like super rock solid and they just slap a little glue. Tap IT in place in the good to go. I just thought that was Kinda Kinda slick like you do the same thing with like a trim rotter but I mean that track saw just circulation is so much faster. Plus there's the you know the the full blade coming in you gotta a rotary blades hanging out too far. I mean I don't know how deep actually make it but I just thought it was kind of a cool option to do this now. We're biscuit Turner worked as well or Domino. Why not going to get a free dominate. The world has given US permission so use it or or rot nails spend probably more in rotten sales and you will on a dominant but really to all right. Good good all right. Dale says I recently purchased some Red Oak one of the big box stores as careful to find to risk one by four as being an amateur woodworker. I'm trying to fall a good working woodworking advice. I place the boards of my shop in Tunis litter at check to the moisture of these boards. With my cheap meter Anna reads zero percents so check the moisture of the wooden furniture in my home and re seven percent assuming the the would meter is in. The right is in the neighborhood of correct. What do I do to get water into? Nearly newly purchased would thanks for not quitting. You're welcome back. What back baby back baby. Well see my sarcastic you answer to this. Is this going to be? Put the wood in your house for a bit and we'll pick up the moisture The Dell do it. Let's come at the equilibrium. Meter is probably a piece of junk actually reads their percentage of things. That's right 'cause lobbying unless Zona then it gets closer to possible. It's a negative percent pretty much water. It actually sucks the water out of the meter malfunctions little wine and a gas so well he even says it's his cheap whatever meter so yeah it is are the same species from like one to the other. I mean there's not a huge variance there but like with this too late if it's a cheap pin meter like I wouldn't WanNa be checking the stuff my the furniture in my house little holes in the table. I don't worry about it is to finish the hammer. The pins in there right. Those are the good ones. If you WANNA get a pinch hitter get the slide hammer because appeal all you understand about the pin meters. The only read is deep as you get those pins so few only touching the surface in your barely inventing the wood. You're literally just reading service moisture. Which isn't really all that useful. Yeah she really wanted to do. It does get down deep the center and get a reading there which is the advanced guard and it sounds like they're sounds like they're shooting a gun. Oh Yeah in March and that close to Baltimore. Common sound just another day at the shop. So can you usually which is just like cut a couple inches in off the end get across section and then jam it right into the center of the end grain. Would that be accurate more accurate than surface yet? It depends like we're talking about furniture in his house now or absolutely. Why not come at Labor right off? Oh man okay you gotTa Domino. You could put it right back together. Not Proven that it can be done. We'll we can fix still worry trace just a little pile so you think this is just the crappy meter situation. Yeah I think so. I mean if you bought it from a big box store and it's Reading Zero Somehow I. I don't know how you get it to read zero and then you get into your house and to reach seven. Yeah that doesn't that doesn't the numbers are so out of whack here or I don't even I don't know maybe the maybe the first digits missing actually ten percent but the displays broken. It's just that bad of. There's there's a lot of IFS going in this scenario here. Italy reads it only one digit side of the decimal point. Actually ten point. Oh yeah suspicious to me. I would probably worry more about the meter being inaccurate than worrying about the would-be to wetter to drier something. But if you're really worried about it. Let it equally. Bright liquid equilibrium whatever lukasz illiquid liquor. Cabrera's if I'm liquor going there yeah so hold up now. Here's the thing I'm GonNa. I'M GONNA make a little confession here. I can't remember the last time I've jammed. My little. Delmenhorst pins into a piece of wood now..

"I'm ready to buy a couple planes. Which one should I in fact like as I was typing us and then I'd like something popped up in my facebook notifications and there was something in mark skilled group on facebook asking exact same question. I was like okay. The fates have spoken. So this is we're going to do if you are power tool guy and you're looking to get into hand tools. You have to ask yourself. What does that mean? Like getting handles what? You'RE GONNA cut more joining me by hand. You'RE GONNA mill lumber by hand. How do you what is getting into handles mean for you because what tools you're going to buy really depends on that and I see this happening all the time and then I say that is the first thought is I want to get a hand tools? I need to go buy some planes and I see this like I have the money to buy three planes and I'm thinking Whoa. Whoa WHOA slow down there jerky what are you going to do with those planes? Because how many our guys do know are suddenly have caught? The urge to mill all their boards by hand which. I don't think so seriously like very funny as hard as people make it out here but I have a player. I have a twenty inch. Planer folks because there are times when it's real easy to shove the thing through and have it come out pretty imperil on the other side when the camera's on. Heck I don't even bother turning on it. It's one of those things where milling while I think. It is a great fundamental skill and can help you solve problems when sometimes either. The capacity of the machine won't work. Or maybe you're in a weird kind of inside corner and you need to flatten the surface. Having that plane skill can be really useful. But I don't know I mean if you're thinking okay maybe I want to get in hand. Plane are hand tools and that means cutting down some sandy okay then the answer is biased. Moving point that's that's your first tool. I don't think you need to go out and buy Jack Plane. And then join her plane. Anna smoothing plane just by smoothing plane. Maybe you can just buy a block plane. I think it's moving. Play would give you more use as far as cutting out the sanding but if your answer is well I really WANNA do more. Like hand cut dovetails. Well then the. The answer is by dovetails. All don't buy a plane. Don't buy Jack Up tailplane. I have one of those. It's a great tool to have but probably one of the least use tools it's great for Megan sliding dovetails wikileaks. Like I just did. But yeah it's and there's the other example like I was afraid to show it on camera because people like well what have I don't have signing up tailplane then in the answer is by domino. Just quit just quit. Just quit. Just give up so the the answer to this is not just immediately jump into planes. I personally think that planes get way over hyped. I think saws are way more valuable in handle shop power till shop hybrid shop. Whatever then a plane. There's a lot more things you can do with saw like if you're brother-in-law cuts the base of the credential three inches wide. How do you fix it? You grab a hand saw and you saw the part. That's what you take with a cross got sled no problem every go so this is not. There is not a stock answer to this to Tony. Steve Bill Mike etc. Do you need to answer your question with a question to yourself on exactly? How do you plan to integrate hand tools in your shop and probably the answer is how do I plan to integrate? Handles in my next project is if you just start thinking. Generally you know the hype and the marketing and all the shiny fancy tools out. There will distract you. We get our tool acquisition disorder. Next thing you know you've bought seven Sol's and five planes and it's that's just ridiculous so think. Think hard about how you WanNa do it before you start answering the question. What tool to get and if I may I did write a book called a what was it called. Hybrid woodworking essential. Join me I just you know what I've been saying. Repeatedly essential woodworking on essential woodworking non. So part of the point of hybrid working was to address like one version of an answer to this question is I've got power tools. I want handfuls. What do I get And I have a whole chapter focused on that if your perspective is. I don't want to replace everything I want to enhance what I'm doing. And that's where the answer comes in very similar to what Shannon said. It may not necessarily be here..

"With this one. The big stuff fist. Good up some things really suck. And that's the stuff we stay away from that sucky stuff. Let's keep the Internet gray gray seriously. If we were like a barbershop quartet I would want matt to be like the unexpected low end guy. He'd be the guy going. You're want that to Shannon will be over. Yeah it'd be perfect reverse pull off at ten okay. I'll do it so this is what I'm GonNa Complain About Today. So I posted a video of the credential recently and I it. It brought something to my attention. Is that over time? The sensibility to certain tools or techniques can kind of change and having done this for a long time I was there when the domino was first invented and was probably one of the first people to show it. I was in the room. I was in the room when the germs. I understand a Dang thing saying it was only my idea but what do you think hair mark or something? Isn't that what they say? And I'm like I don't know doesn't make tendons all right. Let's do it so you know. The Germans always consult me on on what they're working but yeah so. I showed this tool on youtube right. And it's it's almost Vilnai's D- to an extent because it's like it's such a a shortcut and it has the nerve to actually be a good joint that it's frustrating. It's not like it's not the easy target that let's say a pocket screw might be right or some other form of join ARY that works but might be considered and with joint tests and things like that shown to be inferior. It's actually a pretty. Decent Mortis in ten enjoy. It's just that it's done with sort of point and shoot methodology of a biscuit joiner so I start deciding much. I'm going to show this tool in my projects because if you don't have one and you WanNa make the same thing. Do you just check out and not pay attention. Because it's a domino shown so over the course of the years I have thought my instinct to continue to use that tool Just because of the feedback being anytime you show it. Oh well let's see if you've got that but if I don't have one I can't do it. Well that has changed and it's changed so much to the point. Where in the credential project where? I don't use the domino more traditional mortar Santana joints? I actually now have people saying why. Didn't you just use the domino? So things have actually. The pendulum has now swung. And of course what I'm doing. Here's generalizing. I'm considering the audience. A person and that person that person has changed their mind and now it's okay to use the domino so much so that multiple people have given me that piece of feedback to say. Why aren't you using the domino's? Don't you know how easy it is? You could have just done this. And it's like really. I had no idea it was that useful of adjoining toll. Maybe I'll consider using it more. So yeah that's that's the that's the thing I hate this week. Is that the changing sensibility. And it's always the from the approach of like you're an idiot for not doing it this way or you're an idiot for not showing us how to do a traditional mortis intended wiring using the domino. And your knitting but for other reasons. I'm just the media for different reasons. So so that's the thing. It's the changing mentality on this stuff. But it's a good thing the way I look at it though is if you're if the audience is kind of giving me permission to use the domino more homeboy watch out because I'm going to start using it and and it's going to be awesome because I love all you. Did you use the domino on the credential? The only reason I used it was for repair. Which is kind of what brought it up so it was just GonNa say well. Perfect use case when you have to cut that stretcher short just plow mortis in the ingrain. That's exactly and that's that's what I think was the logic behind some of the the people use it for that. But why don't you just use it for the whole base and it's like well because the audience has trained me to believe that. I'm some kind of a jerk if I pull out the domino to do more dissenting joints but I guess enough time has gone by I won't say that it's ubiquitous but the people understanding that it exists. And if you've got the budget you can go buy one. I guess the sensibility has just changed. And ultimately I've got a lot of videos out there showing other ways to make join Arri and Mortis and ten and joined so maybe it is okay to start using it now. I don't know so I was curious with you guys. I don't know if you thought of anything that fits into that category of a pendulum swinging in the complete other direction. Over the course of time with the feedback yet nails okay to us. Now as long as they're fancy cut nails as long as they're cut nails that came. You know that that have names that are difficult to pronounce They are totally okay. I get questions like. Why didn't you nail that together and I'm like where am I where am I? This is not my time years. Nail nails are totally? Okay. In fact encouraged now which. I don't get me wrong. That's awesome. I love me cut. Nail it really really well but I just I can remember thinking there is no way in. Hell I'm going to nail something together and post it anywhere. Because I'll be crucified hotmail the. Oh hello is this the Schwartz effect is this because he was the first person I saw really start talking about cut nails again but you know now you know violence B.'s. Taken up the charge and he's got a book that just came out and use the nails in there. I mean fact of the matter is males like ring. Nails ring shank nails they suck by they. Don't hold it all I think when Schwartz started talking about you know there are other kinds of nails folks. You don't have just have to use. These people actually started using them in realizing. Wow these you can't get these out like I have to burn this nail to get it out of the burn. The board to get the nail suddenly realized this is legitimate. Join ARY but it just blows my mind that they are now not only acceptable but the same type of thing. You're talking about mark. Didn't you know that you could just nail? That's right what are you using? That mortis intended for. Are you wasting your time? There's no doubt I still think mortis intended. Will you know beat up a nail in a street fight any day but sure? Well it's a weird thing I mean as as people who are producing content to hopefully entertain and teach the audience. You have to at least be somewhat aware of the flow of where things are going. And what's Okay and what's not okay or or maybe specifically going against that flow if everyone's going in one direction you WanNa go in the other direction to be unique so we have to look at these things but it is weird. When for years you've trained yourself to say like The audience is not going to be receptive to this. I should not show this technique and then suddenly it's totally okay now and it's like we should like. I'm still apprehensive about it. Someone's going to get mad. It's a weird thing. Yeah I'm just waiting to do any market until scroll saws are considered stupid and market Jew Chevrolets or the way to give off. That's going to happen man it's coming. Yeah Okay I want to be a trailblazer anymore. I'm just before we leave this topic. Matt do you have anything to add to it I'm kind of the same? Both you was a domino. Which is kind of interesting timing? Because on a tool cabinet in the guild. They got the same questions. Like why are you doing with this? Like Morrison Tannin's wants using domino. I'm like good question I don't know why. Why did you bother to mix would into that a poxy poor I mean? Why didn't you just use all boxing? I could have. I could have the next one. I think we need to come up with a deal worth like join the guild. You get a free domino. If we can make that happen. That will be great then. We don't worry about teaching mortars and tendons anymore. There's no excuse everybody's got a domino but it would be one of those like crappy cable provider deals. Where if you're already a member you don't get the deal. Yeah treat you knew better than the old customers. Love that all right. Well let's move onto email. Excuse me believer not a hour and fifteen minutes into this Shindig. We still have lots of e mail to answer. So let's get to it because I could eat lunch. I gotTA subway in for me Italian. It's going to be good all right. Let's go to Jordan's question he says. I'm closing on a new house at the end of the month. So I'm going to be doing my first shop move. I know you posted youtube videos with tips from your previous shop moves but are there one or two tips that you would highlight as contributing to a successful less stressful shop. Move also any suggestions for picking qualified movers to move the heavy stuff so that second part of the question is part of the biggest tip is really finding qualified mover. So this is a company who either does commercial moves As well as residential or a company that does something industrial. They're familiar with these large machines. Now if you're looking at a residential company maybe that's what's affordable and and that's what you're looking but specializes Residential the thing to ask them is what other stuff they've moved so have they moved pianos. Have they moved hot tubs things? That are just ridiculously large. If they have experienced with that stuff they should have no problem. Moving your table saw your band saw things along those lines so those are the questions I would ask is. What are they familiar with if they can? You know if. They say that they can move that big stuff and if they come to your shop which they probably will want to do is send someone over just the double check what you've got If they agree to do it and they have experience with it. I don't see any reason as long as it's a reputable company any reason not to trust that they could pull it off as far as packing and things like that. Those videos show some of the preparation that I did But with regard to the bigger tools anything you could break down take off the toll take a little bit of weight off its offense or you know some component that you can remove anything that's likely to break if it gets pushed up against something else minimize the footprint and the break ability of anything and as as long as you break it down an individually wrapped these things so that they're easy to carry That should help the movers as well Clamps things like that. Get a couple of roles of that shrink wrap stuff Stretch wrap really get a couple rolls of that because if you could take two or three clamps and bundle those together That makes transporting them that much. Easier as opposed to keeping all the stuff loose so just thinking terms. You don't want everything to be perfect but think in terms of just simplifying some of these things by bundling them together and pre removing things that are likely to break and then again those videos. I've got a couple of them out there. You might catch up on catch on some things that I may not have even mentioned in the background. Take a look at how some of the things were wrapped up in. Maybe that will help you out. Very cool as a classic would talk awkward. Pause fantastic now. That hope mail channel went to work in the shop. Marquis talk you something you do when I talk. That's right this time actually while you're talking but go ahead this question actually. It's funny because I've gotten this question like six times in the last couple of days to the point where I can't remember to ask it anymore. So I'm just going to say it's from Tony Steve Bill Mike etc some some variation on the same team..

"To this. You know good once was a segment. Now it's a show but you gotta you gotTa have your roots good. Why Pay Twenty Bucks for it? And I'd like to have and let it be known that I offered to pay mark for it but you just send it to me you can have. I WanNa talk about White Oak today. Because I've actually gotten a few comments just in the last couple of days about people saying well. What is the deal with white out? What's the deal with White Oak? I'm intrigued now. What is the deal? A lot of people having trouble finding it. Why is it that white is a browns okay? I'm sorry so there have you. Don't get this on your own. Show people interacting getting away. Actually get to educate stupid. Shannon Y Y Oka- defined well people that are finding finding that it's really really expensive. And yes there is an emerald ash borer. And that's you know there is a blight going on there but I don't think you can actually call not emerald ash borer powder. Post beetles apologies. What are you talking about our posts? Many bugs bites. Keep track of them all the powder post beetle which you can't really call a blight. I guess you could maybe call it. I don't know it's it's always been there powder. Post beetles have always been going after oaks because it just though the rich Tannin content. They're very very tasty to those bugs. Certainly there has been greater outbreaks those causing a bit of a supply issue but the interesting thing about oak is it actually is in high demand from very old industry. And that's the all of the micro distilleries that have sprung up out of nowhere That rely upon oak to make barrels to actually make their whiskey. They need the Tannin's actually to make the product you know. If you just distill. Whiskey is doesn't taste the same till Ted soaked up some of that good lushes cannon mansion. Don't they just as an aside? Don't they Like burn scorched the inside of the barrels as part of the flavor posting. Yeah I don't drink and I know nothing about liquor so but I. I thought I knew that I took the tour. The Jack Daniel's distillery I know all about it okay you can learn Philipson now fifty minute tour. No it's it's it's an absolutely integral to the process. The TANNIN infusion and torching the inside adds additional flavor to it but also wine is the same thing. They need the OAK barrels to To Age properly age the wind and give it the finish that that fine wine can have matt would know more about this being as he is Gary v. Wine clubs subscriber. I just drink it. I mean it's I might add this grape juice. It's it's particularly interesting because you know there's always been the demand for wine barrels and there's band certainly demand from the bigger distillers like Jack Daniels. They have their own coop. Ridge that makes their own barrels and things I think technically it's a separate company. But it's it's right there and all they do is make barrels for the Jack Daniels Company. But now there's like there's a micro whisker distillery in practically every major city in the US. Many of them in fact. And there's been this incredible demand for these barrels and the coopers that are making these barrels suddenly like what happened you know we were bringing in like a truckload of oak a month now. We're like seven truckloads a month of Oak and certainly when the demand for truckload quantities. Goes up that just goes right up the supply chain to the sawmills themselves and they didn't and the the oak never makes it downstream to the distribution yards to the retail yards. Certainly not the retail yards. So as you go to a lot of these retail yards. There's a lot less oak on the shelves. Because there's just it's not even getting to them. It's not even an option for them anymore and so it's kind of like. Oh that sucks but at the same time. How cool is that like this? Blossoming industry has created a reverse of coffee trade and. Apparently I was reading something other day. That said one of the most secure positions in the United States as a cooper what's real and most people don't even know what a cooper is. Yeah that's weird like there's such a demand for for Cooper Cooper's person makes barrels. I don't think they actually call them. Cooper's their the barrel making companies they have. Here's bill workers. Yeah you're going to be a hipster wear skinny jeans and a barrel of oil. You're going to be a cooper Tom shares. There's one particular company that I can't remember there in the Mid West somewhere but they have job postings for like eight different no workers in their shop and they're looking for experienced people with cooper skills. It's like what what year is it like. This is so cool. The hand to guide me love of course. They're not making the barrels the same way they make him in Williamsburg they have mechanized a lot of those processes. But the you know the principle is still the same and it sucked up a lot of lumber and combine that with powder posts and things like that there. That is why you can't find a whole lot of oak on your shelves. Well sorry but go get some whiskey instead. Yeah you can console yourself with a couple of shots there you go. Don't cry just drink more than all right. That's pretty cool So because this is a once in a while thing of course every show we're going to stuff every segment we possibly can into the show so we're going to follow up.

"Website. It is soundcloud. It's on stitcher. It's in Google play. As of this morning they proved it as of this morning so it might not be showing up until tomorrow still waiting on apple to get their button gear but you know you can add the RSS feed to your pod catching APPs. Whatever they are. It's you can find that on the website again lumber update dot com. And you know. Let me know what you guys think when you hear. That sowed it's It's going to be a Lotta Fun. Awesome still wear that. You've got the domain. I don't know something about dino rate by already did by several months ago but still I was just like it's crazy that that was available lumber update podcast because Taken but now but the funny thing is there is. I have an instagram account. I haven't really talked about it because I'm not actually sure I'm gonNA use it much because they do have a renaissance woodworker instagram account and have a mcilvaine lumber instagram account. And it's like what will I really post on the lumber update? That'll be so much different than what's on those two accounts and do I really want to manage the third one but I figured I might as well just go ahead and grab the Dome grabbed the name right now. That was taken. So that's great on. Instagram is is taken but lumber update dot com domain was not taken a real cow with actual stuff. Look at wouldn't let me wouldn't let me take and I searched for it and I can't find an account on that says not eligible but it won't let me find yours. Lumber upbeat show. Updates show is what the instagram account is. There's only one post on there but yeah I can't find this lumber update that's weird. Yeah wouldn't let me do it. Weird conspiracy I will follow this. I'm the second follower. It's come after you. I suppose I suppose I should say this. I feel very weird and awkward saying this But the urging from my fellow co-hosts here there is actually a pager on page for the lumber industry. Update I feel very weird launch marked at US. Talk about it for you I could do. I could talk about it okay. So if if you don't want to enjoy for free you can pay for it and I don't know if I can. You know what I mean in the in the grand old days of podcasting what seven eight years ago it was like you gotTa have like a bunch of shows that well first of all there is no way you know to monetize monetize. Monetization was the old like get sponsors or run ads on the show type thing. There were certainly no subscriber type model. Hey pound that was the best donations That was it. But you certainly didn't even mention it. For what twenty episodes thirty episode if at all if at all it was definitely it's like no no no this is not you know this is not allow you would have to earn. It is what it will come down to. Yeah so you know I was not planning on doing this at all and I just kinda texted these guys on a Mike you think I should do a Patriot page and both of them are like you idiot. Yeah of course why not? It's like this is so as Marx editing. The show the state of podcasting today is launch patron page then launch. Your first episode. That's it that's how it's done. It's there and I've got some patrons to you. Have Seventeen patrons right now and you can sign up for the poplar level at two dollars if you just want to support the show. And he'll say thank you for Oh you say thank you by giving him two dollars then for Cherry you get five dollars a month you can you like the show and you want to shoot. Oh look he actually Throws me under the bus here? He says you like to show and want to make sure I don't quit or mark makes me quit. You're a scholar and a good person and I'll be sure to thank you at the beginning of the show five. Everyone should sign up just for that level of just because of that right there. That's a good one. So Yeah I actually episode one under the bus about your ex thickness with. Yeah that's what I'm waiting beam. It's going to be a theme that I'm not listening until it comes in my overwatch APP so I waited for waiting to enjoy it all right well. That's really good man. I'm glad to see it was by popular demand. No doubt about it. If you want to support Shannon over there it is actually a patriot dot com slash lumber update and then lumber update dot com. If you want to go to the website and look macaroni just started following you at lumber. Update show wow. It's exciting. I'm there now I'M A. I'm a a real life boy. Follow as well. I'm a little hesitant to click at that five dollar level though something about it bothers me. all right so one last announcement we have here in. What'S NEW AWF s? That's the big wood working. Machinery Trade Show happening in Vegas July Seventeenth through the twentieth and not by intentional. Sort of things. This wasn't planned. We all happen to be going for different reasons but all three of us will be at the show in Vegas so you can probably maybe some kind of a meet up. Probably not at a strip club because that's inappropriate as tempting as it would be. That's bad you need your meet up in Vegas Nada District. Sometimes I think that's against the law the Motley crue sort of the movie that they just the dirt something there. Yeah so that's where my mind's in the gutter at this point after watching but we are not like the the folks from Motley crue real little cleaner than that but you can still hang out with us if you want to. Maybe we'll go to a buffet together. It might be unless we are still a motley crew. Yes exactly just not yes. Vegas twin seventeen through the twentieth in July. Really I mean can you think of a better time to be in Vegas? When it's like ridiculously hot out. It was terrible last time. It's going to be going to be awful so I'm going to be there for Taipan I'll probably be at their booth for a couple of days. I think they're going to do something similar. Only with the new book times if you WANNA. I'm guessing like here's the old book. Yeah it's the old book still good still works from the library's like circulation. Okay you know what you just reminded me of something. I was actually going to make a joke about it. Being out of print and have an aversion to sh we probably should mention news. That happened a couple of weeks ago. It's not in here but the The whole chapter eleven thing for F and w media and that is the publisher of Hybrid woodworking so. There was a little bit of a moment where I was going like. Well what's going to happen with my book now like you know? So so yeah. They did file Chapter Eleven. And that is that is the version of it where they are going to stay in business. But it's a restructuring to help them manage their debt and deal with this situation that they're in So pop woodworking to my knowledge isn't going anywhere at this point But they are obviously having some kind of financial trouble. But I don't know what that means for publishers. Sorry for Authors. You know like if they have your booklet. What's the future of books and royalties and all that stuff when you have a company that's like dealing with this stuff money Mahmudi man? I need my forty dollar check. Let's go royalty payouts. Yeah it was. It was big news though and I saw there were few update articles. Chrish wars wrote an article based on his experience. There Robert Lang wrote some articles. So if you are interested in learning more about that go to their websites and look at their blogs They posted some interesting stuff with inside information about how this happened. Why it happened. Pretty informative stuff but it's a it's sad to see stuff like that can't say it's too surprising but it definitely was saying to To hear about athlete give us some insight until like how the publishing industry works the whole disconnect company up to be gobbled up in the features. You can get our money out later exactly. We don't really want to where it belongs. As long as someone buys US thing for details and how frustrating must've Matteo? Yeah your problem now. How frustrating must have been as someone working there you think of Schwarzen- and lying doing their thing they're and just be someone else dictating. What's being sure? I'm sure yeah I mean. They had mass exodus over there so anyway all right. So let's get an aura kickback. We don't have any official kickback. But the the the the big kickback. That we can't ignore was the outpouring of of of support from people who were sad to see the show leave And just in general saying look I get it. I understand but we're really really sad. It was one of those things where I think three of us are going like. Hey where was all this love while we were doing the show? I thought you guys hated us. Surprise surprise they actually liked the show. But if you go to the the most recent episode the one where they quit We had sixty three responses on that show from people. Just you know. Various levels of depression anger appreciation. There's all sorts of reaction bargaining begging yelling at Shannon for not doing a show all kinds of stuff. So yeah I mean. It's definitely good. Reading actually makes me think of. I think. Probably seven maybe eight times now. I've been told that I should have matt and mark as guests on the ladder. She update and then they can become regular guests and we could maybe talk about some woodworking sure steady just number two so very general woodworking show. That sounds great. It's a brilliant idea. I haven't done that. Someone should do it but yes seriously. Thank you everybody. It was really great reading. It was a painful reading in a lot of ways because I get it I understand it. I've got some shows that I listened to as podcast that if they were just suddenly taken out of my podcast feed. I'd be like well. What now what do I do now actually relied on that every Friday. I wanted to hear that show So I totally get it and hopefully this little taste once in a while. Hopefully this is enough to to to sort of wet your appetite a little bit and have you looking forward to the next one. If it happens yeah because rotten promises for. Everybody wanted to to vilify mark and blamed the the breakup of the ban on mark it took. What was it mad about right? Well yeah absolutely thirty minutes. Maybe thirty minutes after the show was published before markets. You want to put something on the calendar. I like just can't let go is making a huge mistake. Why why am I feeling regret over this? And here's the thing though. It was The the last few months when you look at it and I've had a couple of people right and say well you know what you kind of were right about this in terms of what what you said which is basically. This show takes up a lot of mental space and even if the time invested to physically produce the show. Even if that's not that big of a deal everything that goes into thinking of the ideas for the next show what we're going to talk about in the planning and all that stuff. There's a lot it was just one too many things and what wound up happening was again. I some of this was having my brother-in-law Jason here helping me that got my productivity through the roof but it gave me a little bit of an opportunity to refocus and I've been putting out more free content on all platforms including Youtube Than I have in years and part of it is being able to just simply work through Fridays And not have to stop to record the show for two hours. You know so. It actually has on all of our friends. Shannon's got a new podcast. You know like we have more time and more mental space to focus on all the time adding new projects. Yes we can quit later So so yeah honestly. That's what it was for me. And that's why doing the show on a very occasional basis. Let's call it. Quarterly is something that I absolutely can commit to and I would really enjoy doing So I don't want I don't want anybody to think of this as us being kind of wishy washy and how we're handling the show. I want I want. I want people to feel like if I tell them. The show's over that they can trust that. I meant that but in reality it's like I want. I want to do the show periodically. I Miss Doing it but I definitely do not want to do it weekly if I knew we had to do this again next week. I might not be as excited to do the show this week. So that's kind of basically..
"wood" Discussed on Wood Talk
"It's not just rails. It's rails with a curve rails with sculpted profile. Like so much had happened to them. That at this point I was I was ready to throw the project out but you know then you sit down you collect yourself you figure out okay. How do I solve this problem? So it was taking a handsaw to a perfectly finished and constructed base to cut it down and Redo the rails. Like what else do you do but fix it? So that that that was one of those deconstructed tables and run back in Michigan case float above it. Just design opportunity comprise exactly so yes. So it's been a learning experience for me. Managing another person in the space but productivity man is through the roof. Just just not even so much just having another body but being responsible for someone else who's now being paid to be in the shop which means I can't just come inside and fart around on the computer. I've got somebody waiting for me to tell them what we're doing next. So it's kind of just in terms of discipline Making for so much more productivity in the shop use me so we got that We got the credentials done. Were moving onto the hall tree. Which is kind of. I'm keeping up the pace but we got the book thing. That's kind of a distraction. So Book Stupid Book thing so the hall tree is kind of going on at the same time and then we'll resume that as soon as we get through the lion. Share these books but yeah. That's about it for me. It's been been a busy couple of months but again like the. I like the videos in your story of Jason Stuffing Books. Look on his face. Like I didn't sign up this there is GonNa be working in a shop. Yeah there is a bit of that you know. Look at every day he comes in just like. I'm so sorry a little bit of resentment I do. I do feel bad because like this sucks. This is a tough thing. It's obe like one of those things that you just even though you haven't done much physically by the end of the day when all you've been doing stuffing envelopes and stuff like that you're just brained it like there's there's your brain function is like a fifty percent at that point. It's weird but anyway I'm super thankful you know because it's like obviously the book campaign was really good. It went well So I am complaining about something that I shouldn't be complaining about because it was great and I appreciate everybody Jumping in this this more than ever. I mean central joyner was cool but seeing people's posts when they get their books like the community support on this was through the roof So just a big. Thank you to everybody. Who bought a copy of the book? I really really appreciate it. Even though I'm going to probably continue to complain about the packing was just my fault but I seriously do Bottom of my heart appreciate everybody's support on this side. It was a cool thing to say and I think that's about it for me on what's on the bench. The director of marketing may wants like a case. Study right up when this is all said and done comparing the previous book with like corporate support and the bootstrapped version. I really would love to see them. Harrison there it's a very different thing and also add five years to it and you know a whole different marketing methodology than what we did last time. Just in terms of how many people we can access and It was a very different experience than the first one. But in the end it's still just me and my family stuff and books and bags and sending them out kinda crazy all right. So let's get to what's new so we've had a little bit of time go by some things have changed I one thing I wanNA just make sure people know we do a Friday live. Show every Friday Certainly no substitute for would talk. But it's Nicole and I discussing woodworking answering woodworking questions talking about community events things like that. So that's every live and it is every Friday and it is a live show that we also make an audio version of so if you are looking excuse me to fill that massive black hole. That's a that's a current events. Relevant joke I just made their black-owned you guys hear about the whole. Yeah the whole picture. It's a it's a big deal it's just it's exist and nine sign was right. This is what this comes down to. But if you're looking to fill that void that is one thing you might be able to do with Friday live. It's an hour roughly an hour long show. I put an audio version ups. If you like the whole audio podcast thing. That might be a way for you to listen to the show. If you're interested in that and of course the book is for sale is the other things if you wanna go to a single join. Ary Dot Com. If you're interested in the book we were just talking about You can go get yourself a copy. There were still at this point probably a week or two out from sending out new orders. But you can place your order. It'll be in line once the preorder out the rest of them. We'll go from there Let's see what else Matt. What do you got to talk about? You got some. What's new stuff. Oh yes I was. Recently a guest on the maker might podcast. Which was formerly called the Green Woodworker podcast? That was the first guest on the Green Green Woodworker podcasts. And then don back again for the first official episode of the new name show same show different name checked me out. We talked about that. Everything has changed over the last two years with with me since the last time we spoke which is kind of weird. Things are a little Harrier Harrier little gray hair new places you know going away from where you want it and showing up where you don't. That's my life right. Now that's cool. That's cool how was how was your experience as a guest on the show. Did you ask you to be a CO host? Now actually total aside and I know we've talked about this just very briefly in the past. How many requests have you gotten to be a co host on a new podcast since we're talk- ended Four I think four for Shannon. You got three okay you got four. You want to know how all requested do my own thing to do your own. Yeah yeah that makes sense to you. Know How many I've gotten euro none. I guess I made it pretty clear that with this was my fault. It's no one's even thinking about asking me to be on a show. Yoko not going to bring him in my car. We actually want this thing to succeed. Why would we have him on it? Oh man that's classic. Okay so do we should do another show just so that we can come up with a title mark. Is Yoko Yoko the showman that's good okay? So maker minded podcast Yoko Ono. That's a good song actually We'll we'll check that out. I have to do if I'm subscribed to the green woodworker. Does it just shift over to make her mind? Yeah changed the name Okay Cool. No that explains how. I'm subscribed to that show. I've so far behind and so many but I saw that he was gonna go up to look it out. I was like Oh. It's already in my windows. I subscribe to this. Okay Paul his answer. I appreciate that great. That's customer service right. They're answering questions. Before you even know you can't get anywhere else. Only AT MACARONI DOT com. We'll speaking of audience shows. I think the The big announcement here is Shannon's. Oh well you know other than not having a baby and mark publishing a book and the podcast. You're the talk of the town. Maybe yeah well. We'll hope we live up to the hype. It's it's it's it's good it's GonNa it's GonNa be a lot of fun. I still have a bit of trepidation on the lumber industry. Update just because you know. How long can it run? You know this. Is this the show that is GonNa last forever ago last fifty episodes who knows? It's just kind of an experiment at this point. The good news is there will be five shows etc shows have been recorded and it was kind of like you know. I'm hoping that in some respects. It'll it'll have a similar format to wo- talking that there will be questions that I can actually answer. I just checked the Google sheet a couple hours ago and gay. There are twelve questions in there that you know that has helped so but got four other episodes to put out so hopefully. By the time I'm out of episodes in the can there will be plenty of questions to answer. I mean I've got plenty of topics and things to to talk about but what I don't want to do is have that. Show be just me talking about one particular topic the whole time. If it does that it'll be a shorter format I do have some some kind of what I consider baseline topics that need to to cover just so that we can have conversations later and not have to go stop every five minutes ago. This is what I mean by this. I mean by that. So for instance the next show. That's GONNA come out as a two is all about grading number grading I specifically episode. One was like common terms and I specifically avoided all talk of grades. Because that's like a whole other rabbit hole so you know the ideas the first couple shows we'll kind of lay that groundwork so that we can have conversations about some of the stuff that comes in from the audience but the response not want. What's the word I'm looking for? The urging since when talk ended to launch that show has been so intense at a kind of had. So like if I don't do it I might get death threats or something so really anxious. It's it's great The funny part was just how many people were so concerned that I might not have the jingle so thank you mark. Jingle told Shannon if he looks at his stats. He'll probably see that most people just cut out after fifteen seconds. They just want to hear the intro because my fix or just waiting waiting for that last out my day. So yeah it. It's IT'S FUN. It kind of takes me back. Because when the Renaissance woodworker started in two thousand eleven. Where you're going with this. It was audio only. Yes and that was what we did. Well I mean unless you are named mark we were all putting out audio podcast facility. There's something kind of nostalgic about just standing here talking into the microphone in you know with without other people there because I mean I've been doing this show for so long. You know three of us just having a conversation but doing the lumber podcast especially with my Shall we say tendency to drone on GonNa be interesting. I'm almost asked you. The question is it weird to sit there and just talk by yourself for half an hour. I'm like wait a minute. I Know Shannon. No it's not weird. That comes very natural to him.
"wood" Discussed on Wood Talk
"I've really I mean I. I did call my show. The Renaissance woodworker right. Because I do a lot of different stuff next to the Chevrolet right. Now is a Miller's fall boring machine because I'm going to play with some timber framing I think nice. I wanted to do it for a long time eventually. I WANNA frame my own shop. But I think I'm going to frame like an open. Walled kind of a pavilion type. Deal for honor posts and regular rafter structure and like a raised deck that I can put like some chairs on or whatever got a spot in the corner yard because it just had a tree taken down this big open spot that I could put like a you know a deck about eight inches off the ground and have host center framing above it. Just been kind of playing around with that idea and I saw Jim Body of tools at the Brown tool show recently and picked up a boring machine. So I'm GonNa have some fun with that. That's exciting as cool. Yeah Yeah I don't know maybe I'll build a yoga deck. That's what I call. It could do yoga. Nothing wrong with that man. Nice place the MEDICI. Do some light exercise that be good. Well the that's true because I have like no place in my house to do. Yoga always bumping into stuff. So I need to go outside. I go whether permitting you'll be fine but I mean this is. This is kind of how we do things I'm sure market and you've talked in the past about how one of the problems of kind of producing content as maybe you don't get to challenge yourself for take classes yourself but you know you have to you find some time to do it. So of course everybody's wins are going to be. I'm already hearing questions in the HINDALCO. Wins are going to be a timber frame semester. And it's like that would be cool eventually but like I got to put some time and so you got to choose. You GotTa get to a point that you can guide people like you don't necessarily want your very first attempts at these things to be like. Here's how you do it because you don't know how to do it yet. So we'll call this handle. School are indeed. The market is eventually. I'd love to do something in the school. It has some market-oriented and I certainly know there's lots of people interested but let me spend some time. Let me screw a bunch of stuff. I in the same thing with well timber framing. I think okay. Everyone quote we now. It's early April Shannon. Said he doesn't think it's going to be that difficult famous last words. This it's more than tenants. Mortis intendant just on a much much larger scale. That's becoming a big piece of material. You gotta work a lot differently than you normally would but you can't really like fit the pieces together you've got to have more accurate lay out and you know because the first time you fit together. Maybe last time He. I'm not listening to that anymore. But from a tooling perspective. Even is very different. Tooling in in just scale timber framing. You know I've got a slick big giant Chisel you know I've got some heavy duty chose. Let's go to one half to two inches all that I've had for years and years. I'm using a brace and bit but I'm just using two inch. Augurs instead of three eighths or three quarter and joggers I could use an adds a bunch. That's that's my tim. The toolman tailor moment when the ads comes out oh awesome. So I don't know I'm I'm really kind of looking forward to it. The hardest part right now is just like staring boring machine and going. Don't don't do it right now. You got other stuff to do Dongo on the backyard. Started cutting down trees and you know hewing them into cancel things that would be. That'd be bad. Finish the lingerie chest. I come on to finish the bedside table table finish. Something else. Coleman literally actually finish it you know maximum four projects. No more no more than four. You gotTA finish worn down. There's no putting on a project down in that shop. I shop thing. I don't want you putting up youtube videos. Well because I don't there's no room to move our well. I guess I'll jump in Bubba. What do I have going on lots of things? Speaking of no room to move. I've I've got no room to move because of Paletta of books so it does look pretty ridiculous. It is it is ridiculous. Your Whole House your to your pictures. Remind me of that scene in the Santa clause when the list shows up. Oh Yes all right guys take these things back yeah it is like that and we're a small business. It's hard to get all these books out and it's I thought it would go a little faster but it's going slow. You know the thing is with the show. It's hard this is going to be something we talk about him. What's new but it's hard for me not to talk about this book thing because it's my life right now Signing books carrying books moving books pack and books and you would think that the whole autographing all these like. That would be the big problem. It's not it's stuffing them into envelopes and in putting that envelope in another envelope and making sure each corner is protected with tape. It's this process that is insane and we needed to do it because it helped us accomplish our goals marketing wise. What we were trying to do but man we will never do this again and I think I said that's not the first time I've said those words a lot about I just loved that. Matteo is stuff. Books yes stickers. That was awesome. He loved it. He keeps asking me for more. And then what happened was Signing my autograph in an eye stuff in a little thank you card and a little sticker And initially I was just signing so I had him take all the sign books and stuff those things in it and he absolutely loved it. He earned a couple of his favorite show. That like. It's like two bucks an episode on Amazon so he earned a couple episodes of his show but then now I started signing them in ice stuff that just to make it faster stuff those things in as I'm signing so there's nothing for him to do and he keeps coming in and he's like what can I do. What can I do and everything is just kind of hard for a seven year old to pull off so I'm trying to find jobs for him but he was into it. He actually enjoyed it at a lot of fun. I don't know I think I'd rather have his autograph than yours. A lot of people have asked for it. He's pretty good at writing his own name now. So if they asked limited edition I mean you got ten thousand of these books with your autograph on it. You know there could be a hundred with. I know I know my autograph pretty much meaningless at this point because it's on all of them. So yeah that's what's been going on is is is just tons of books. We're about halfway through. We probably have about thirty five hundred more to go and we go out of town in about a week and a half so we're just hoping to get all that done before that happens but yet me Matt and I were talking pre show lake. You realize just how long it's been since we've done would talk because of all of the things that have gotten done between then and now between the official quitting and the official return So yeah I went to jewelries. Guys Know Jewelry Birmingham was on that That show on Spike TV. One that show on Spike TV He was on it. He also won. Yeah not just on it but one it he. He's doing a hank chair project in the guild so I spent about three or four days there with a crazy schedule. Here's a guy who likes to work like I like to work like especially when I'm out of town which means until I like I'm about to fall over. That's how long your days are. We got this this project done. Three three days of filming. It was fantastic Anyone who followed my stuff on instagram. When I was posting what an amazing picturesque almost doesn't look like it's America like you know what I mean. Yeah well that's how I spent half of my time there. I look like Court County Ireland or somewhere in Wales or something New Zealand. Right like the landscape there is in those vineyards and stuff is just absolutely beautiful. Green Rolling Hills So his shop. He definitely wins. The like. Who's got the COOLEST shop environment contest? So but it was cool. I mean he's a very just. His approach to his craft is very interesting. He's self taught so a lot of the ways he he will accomplish something. You might not have seen before so I was really anxious to capture those moments and try to translate that into an instructional set videos but really good guys family was amazing and the best part they had a doberman so it was like. I felt like I was at home. It was great but olive. I will never olive. She was the Best Obi Let's see what else. Excuse me Brother-in-law mentioned that before so my brother-in-law Jason now is working for the business fulltime. And I've actually got for the first time in twelve fourteen years of doing this woodworking thing actually have help in the shop and it's It it it's great in every possible way except for one thing. Which is my attention being divided too much right like so. You're building a project you got. You got a new guy in the space. You're trying to make sure he's doing the right things. He's as safe as possible. You're trying to not just tell him what to do. But tell him why you're doing it because I want him to get good at this stuff so I don't have to constantly watch everything But I'm also filming and documenting and there's just it's just one too many variables so I've made more like ridiculous blunders on projects than I ever have an thankfully it's not a safety thing making sure that both he and I are safe in the shop but I might forget some just stupid detail that like. Oh my God. I can't believe I made that mistake. So the most recent project that we put on the website is the credential and we made a giant blunder on the base. The base was just to to the pieces. Were too big everything ever so like you think like oh you. The whole measure twice cut once thing like never was that truer than in that moment But the thing was I told him to cut it to a certain part and I don't know whether I gave him the wrong number. Or He missed measured but he cut the rails too long and then we proceeded with the project. The next thing you know. I'm like this base is three inches too big for the rest of this cabinet and I just sat there for a few minutes going on my God like this so much work had gone into the construction of this base. It's not just rails. It's rails with a curve rails with sculpted profile. Like so much had happened to them. That at this point I was I was ready to throw the project out but.

"Don't you I mean like we all talk about this study tool chest now man things that work of art but man us not functional? I have no desire to do anything like that right. Everything with its specific place and everything is just packed. In there I ended up reorganizing mind like four times and I had to reorganize it like while I was working out of it because I would never think that's not in the right place until I turned in the middle of project and went where the heck is my hydro spanner. And because you know everybody needs a hydra spanner in the middle of a project right of course and so the the the less regimented the less structured. It was the better. The mortgage is most around right. Just kind of having a big open space that you can do with what you will you know. I think the number one rule is prepared to change it in like two years yeah. It's almost a micro representation of a shop in general or you. Just kind of the the more flexibility. You have the possibly move things around the better because you could just improve your process over time. So yes same thing with the toolbox. Some tools are GONNA come and go. Something might break something gets replaced. You gotTa have some flexibility. There agreed okay cool. That sounds good man channels. What do you got going on speaking hand tools? There's a transition that yeah well. It's funny that you say that because one of the projects I'm working on is hybrid project. Oh really yeah. I've I've been meaning planning wanting to put built INS and my master bedroom for years and years and years and just so many other things needed to get done beforehand and finally was like okay now we can move onto those and I have no desire to break down a whole bunch of plywood using your hands all who can do it. I can absolutely do it. I don't need to prove that to anybody. That's one of the reasons I hung onto that festival. Taxol you know so. I've actually discovered that the biggest pain in the butt is like shifting from handles to power tools and then back like the the actual shop setups tend to be so different that ended up having to like knock everything down and then like deconstruct the shop and reconstruct the shop. And it's just it's a lot of time and breaking down stuff and moving stuff over and so I'm at the point. Now where I've got. All of the essentially the carcass pieces cut and I can essentially put the tax away. Put it back into mothballs for Awhile. Hibernation Pretty Much. It lives next to the furnace in the room next door to you. Take it out next time. It's grown into a t seventy five. Sorry Stupid Joke. All right go ahead. That's been kind of fun because you know built in. Have that whole other. You saw mark when you're doing the home theater. There's just this different level of carpentry skill really because nothing is square. Nothing is plum. You're building I the way I've always been built since before is essentially build like bookcase and I'll build separate bookcases kind of separate modules and then slot them up against the wall. Tach them together. Attached to the wall run trim around them and everything. So I'm I'm taking this case Built Square in. Stick it into a space because in my master bedroom. There's like this little perfect alcove. It's like the architects said. Someone's eventually I don't WanNa put built in bookcases. Here go ahead and put this. Alco here like the perfect shape and size but nothing is square. I mean house built in nineteen sixty six. So there's been a fair amount of settling and all kinds of things that have happened in the in the time. Nothing is square. Nothing is flat. So I've got these Nice Square cases in all kinds of wonky gaps. All the way around them and it's like all right. This is GONNA be fine. See some scrubbing in your future. Yeah but then at the same time. It's like well how much describing to WANNA do. And can I just like build up a molding over that go? That'll work just run this legislative here and that'll be the first step in some architecture molding and then I'll run some crown over top of that but that's been kind of fun just to you know anytime you take that carpenters go out of the shop. That's always the fun part. Well I say that with great sarcasm because when you're so to working in a shop and then you're like upstairs and you turn to reach for that pencil or reach for that tool that usually just hanging on the wall. And you're like Dang it walk out of the bedroom and down the hall and down the stairs and you get back up to the bedroom. You realize Dang it other tool that he's always just within reach is now totally out of reach. Dang it wrong. It's the same thing they can't write case into the wall and I realized wait. This is not the right bedroom. Where is my beautiful white wrong? The neighbors are really a man. I really appreciate you putting these jokes in beautiful out. I was confused in my house. So I got that going on. And then we've talked in the past about how like having multiple projects in the shop is just kind of a disaster and it never works. Well I got four of them going right now and I don't know what I was thinking because I'm actually at the point where I'm getting confused because I'm I'm I'm I am filming. This built in thing. I actually plan to put that on my youtube channel because it is still there. It's just feeling neglected so whatever. I have no idea win I'm going to do. I'm just kind of filming it. Mark Style all edited nine months or something that I filmed in. Why is that much time later on your travel trips? You know like you Daryl period trip jury trip and all that no guilt guild style. Okay that makes it killed style. The placate the planer brackets. That's that's a good point. That's Pretty Yeah stabbed him? My par- problem you're big fan. I appreciate that you're doing the algorithms. We're like oh you like everything. Mark does that just like I literally like everything you post because you know be supportive. Yeah I do the same thing. That's why we're we're top fans of each other all get stuff you post all right. Miss Anything I want to see this stuff show it to him tell algorithms work. Well what are the other projects going on? I've got a chest of drawers that building. Worst project ever right. Yeah especially because I haven't gotten to the George yet I project over us like doing Full width sliding dovetails right now. Which is a royal pain in the you know what but at the same time like that's when you need that high five shots when you slide it in and it fits in your like yes. Isn't that really what Instagram is? It's the modern virtual high five. If you post a picture and it's like like it please. I need a high five back but in high. If that's what she says yeah I felt it. I felt that several times. I bet you did oh boy. Hey that chester drawers. That's going on. I'm actually calling it a joint keeping with the theme. It's a lingerie chest because it's in the form of laundry tall skinny. Yeah with with curves on all the right places while the work have been doing. I think it's time to show that stuff awesome lingerie triathlon shoppers card. Victoria's secret now. I'm ready lace boxers. Try that the throne comfortable Matt. I have my vacuum bag out and my vacuum press and I'm going to be pressing. The need for the drawer fronts Hopefully the next couple of weeks or so when it get to that. Because it's going to be full. Vineyard drawer fronts with vert the green running vertically nice full full overlay drawer. So you're just looking at the the veneer front should be kind of fun cool and I've got a frankly. This is an embarrassing project. Because it's been going on for so Dang Long. It's a bedside table for the hand tool school actually. The lingerie chest is an apprentice project for the school but the bedside table was one that just kind of kept getting off for other things other semester projects and things like that and then it was like oh right built kind of like mark if you got like six guilt projects on and realize you never produced one that you plan to do six projects as bad news so yeah. I'm I'm really kind of wrapping that up I just have one left to build and do some stringing and lay on the top and that will be done so that's kind of. I'm sitting here staring at it. It's like pushed off into the corner of the shop and like there's some George stuck in some parts laid across the top just random parts kind of all shoved over to the corner because like when you're filming projects like I can't have this project in the frame because just confusing so it's like shove everything off into the corner and then in the other corner because on the bench right now is a lingerie chest in the other corner. Stacks of in years and tiny little scraps of boards. Because I'm doing market tree on my Chevrolet. The last time I recorded talked about how? It's not quite as easy as it looks like. It's it's very different feeling going from using a afraid saw by hand to having this thing on a carriage that restrict your movements in it's just from body mechanics perspective's very different feeling for me but I'm having so much fun with this thing now like I'd anywhere I go. I see patterns and I'm like Oh take a picture of that. I want to do that and market so I've got my camera on my phone's just filled with random close ups of fabric and like artwork and beard stuff. I WANNA Make Marjorie. Outta of that someday so I I mainly just doing. I like practice projects you know. Here's one little like a leaf or something like that or form and just have done. Some bull type work Doing some piece by piece type stuff. Real simple nothing. You know. Twenty thousand pieces eventually. These things will just end up like hanging on the wall and the shop little decorations. But you know it's just it's a lot of fun and I keep getting ideas of how I could integrate this and other projects on I keep hearing what's his name. Paul shirts in my head Talking about Oh. My furniture is really not that exceptional. But when I put Mark John it it's really. It's really like one of his videos. He talked about how I was having trouble differentiating myself. It's like anybody can build a cabinet you know. And how do you make that cabinet self are enough money to actually be able to pay your mortgage in a sea of cabinets? White noise put a little leaf and flower top. Suddenly ooh now. Your your cabinet is worth like four hundred dollars more than the next guy you're selling and left and right and it's no different. It's sin cabinet but there's just a bit of market sure on top and it's like yeah here you now getting all kinds of ideas. It's it is a lot of fun so that I guess technically that's not a fourth project but it's something that I'm it's splitting my time..
"wood" Discussed on Wood Talk
"To use this analogy but I'm using it anyway. Highschool students didn't say high school I wasn't I wasn't drinking in high school. This is like college. Let's let's bump it up years all right. Let's keep it. Pg Too while we're at it so I don't know this was something where when we quit. Officially I said well what what can be the harm. If I put it in the calendar and say let's try to maybe do a quarterly update show. A few people even asked for that and also you know what that's reasonable because it isn't like I don't like you guys and it isn't like well sometimes. It depends some when she talks too long. Sometimes I question our friendship but most of the time though I'm like no you know what I actually would look forward to talking to these guys for an hour and just catching up. So that's kind of where this is that the show still is not going to go back to what it was before. So don't don't get your hopes up about that but a little update show like this once in a while picking up where we left off and just seeing how. Everybody's doing what they're working on. I think that's perfectly feasible for us to pull off what it. What do you guys think? Sure perfect all right. Let's move over. Hey Shannon says so. That's what we're going to do so I was just going back and reading. All the booty call texts that I got from you about baby how you doing tonight. You're not dating so let's let's just get right into what's on the bench by the way. We're not really doing anything with patriotic upbringing. Any of that stuff back. We're doing the show because we love to do it and it's just going to show you even got to pay us to do it. What is this podcasting in? Two thousand nine hundred and we're not asking for money and that is that worse still. We're so backwards. We really are all right. So what's on the bench? I'm GonNa let met Take the top spot here. Because I think what's on his bench. We'll maybe not on his bench. What's on his changing table? Maybe is probably the biggest news. So what do you got going on the third head changing table since twenty fifteen baby? That's an investment man. That's a good deal. Still working out still working still Crotch figure changing table that I made Almost four years ago still working out again. Beautiful baby daughter. She was born Well we get like two weeks ago to acquiesce ago. Something like that. She still has that new baby smell. Although she's like growing ridiculous at least she came out Just under seven pounds. She's over eight now already. She's packing on. Oh Yeah it's like in the newborn outfits which were like super big honor and now they're starting to fill out like they grow fast sometimes man. It's Chris we're too because like when they come out and you're like holy crap. This thing is a tiny your free. I forget like how tiny babies are right and I go. This is a tie-up thing. Then you like inside a person. This is all inside of you. And then GE- thing you know they're running around under little getaway sticks and you're chasing them around and their cereal all over the house. The dogs barking. It's a whole thing. That's my life and number three. So were you guys super excited about the boy girl thing matter much to you or was this a a big deal to finally girl at the little bit bigger deal now that we've had two boys and we're likely to kind of girl. Although like I I really wanted a girl like the mortgage thinking about it like towards the end of the pregnancy. I was like I don't know if we really want to grow them. Reason girls a lot about a lot of ah boys. I know a lot about their plumbing and stuff I think about you know lady bits and how. How do I talk to them eason? Which is weird thing about Talking to kids like one whole is like a hold skill itself. When you're like it's a little different talk until like little girls the mole boys or like what you do with them I mean. Can I be violent with her than with my boys absolutely serious question? I have absolutely sounds like she's GonNa Outweigh you so anyway. Well that's the girl right there. Right congratulations due to To you and Lindsey. That's fantastic have. I'm trying to think back have you? You guys had all three kids during the span of would talk or was yeah. Did you have your first for? Oh wait have jr. I think before you think it might have been before the show six months before heading on some before started. Gotcha 'CAUSE I I've had all my kids during would talk. Which is kind of Weird Dawson running for salons venue long running show while Kuhlman at so good. She's she's a beautiful little baby and wish you guys the best with that But now you're outnumbered so enjoy that the the odds are against you now three against two. It's not that bad though. 'cause like she's the first one actually seems to sleep right. Just this ridiculous like Max woke up three times last night. I is still does that. It's my seven year old doesn't show it's kids. I don't know what the problems kids and then Louis atmos- leaving me alone. Yeah that's awesome. Good man he might forty-five-year-old wife does that all the time. Does she ask you like to read a book? Get Milk Three. Am Arabia book reading. Glasses of milk Shannon. She gave me some milk. I gotta go potty all right so baby talk. We can do this all day. what else. What else going on so I put a bill that Samuel inherited. We talked with on the last episode. I think we're making fun of you for going to April's place to build a sawmill. I don't know like this is how bad is like. I don't know we'll move records last one right now. Anyway we didn't I went to Texas. I both now what am I saw? Mills was April and that was it was a fun experience. It was quick really quick like it was like a five or six days As their the billick five days it's crazy to get like the thing up and running and like cutting and five days is it was a ridiculous experience and told the different than like the experience that I had going into a thing like. I don't know what I'm doing my cigarettes. I go to just go through me like here's a plan. Here's how to do it. Here's a steps put together and get a cutting totally different experience and it was really cool like for me personally. Like oh there's another one of my son those out there in the world right plans. Has anyone else even started the project? Yeah there's a lot that are in the process of being built right now. Okay as far as I know April's I was actually running but people tell me on instagram now is like there's the bed and there's the carriage and it's coming together like Oh this is this is for real. People actually can build hit well. That was an amazing show of teamwork for the amount of time. You guys had put that thing together. It was a sight to see. It was so great. It's like being able to work with some like really awesome people as big. I don't like a lot of things that we do. We're like alone like we work alone so much so often. There's no one there to share in the victories with going into high. Five yourself market go. Hi Five Nicole but sometimes being dependent as you guys are doing like the care that you do like did southern cool in the shop that you've never done before. She woke up perfectly. You will high five me sarcastically. It's never genuine high five but I could get a high five a Foam Lake Jones and for one. I could get get it out of her. She's not she doesn't mean it says real nice. Well it's very nice to have other people there to share in your victories. That's like one of when we talk about like working for yourself and being self employed like one of the things like I do. Miss from traditional employment is that sense of teamwork where you have a team of people around you. Joel Kind Sheri- in Victories. Which I guess if you grow your business enough so having employees then manipulate the cool boss said like high fiber buddy or give him a little slap on the. But that's allowed. That's my favorite kind of boss. Work Work Teaching slap in boss. Yeah I get you get a little more into this later but I've got Nicole's working in the shop now and I know what you mean. There's a point where you hit a victory. You don't WanNa do that little victory lap in a project and normally it's like me you know what we actually got someone who get there. You can kind of celebrate that victory together. Yeah and I think that's really cool about this. Build was like going back and now watching the videos of at all like April did a really good job adding it down to like a super watchable couple videos things so four videos nearly fifty minutes long super watchable is a lot. There's still a lot of detail thereby how to put together and everything. But the way that she approached the edit it was it was all about showing the teamwork the camaraderie between us all and it was just so cool to go back and watch videos and be like I remember those moments those moments joy this kind of like hogging like holy crap like what made that I cut and it worked and we're all like holy crap. It worked as a big group hug it was. It was a great day and as being able to see that really creative. Let's go holy Guber will be here? Close Uber Guy Standing. Just a frame high-fiving with you as well. I'm on the clock is that's cool. Whatever do what you want? I'll send you a bill. It's all good so that was That was an experience and then back here. I guess building this Hansel cabin for the last few months and that's been really a lot of fun. I have been really enjoying that process. Just being in the shop doing some cool fund. Join ARY and I got to do some experimentation. I've never done any nearing before so I got my cellphone's vacuum back things and I gave that try not even close to as difficult as I thought it would be Like at all. I'm like this. Is it like why I've been working for ten years? I saw mark dude vacuum bag thing like I dunno one episode. Was You did that? You made your own or some stupid thing like that like. I never thought that it'd be that easy but it's like stupid. Easy slaps on glue on it putting the bag done to for the most part. I'll tell you one of those like air mattresses from the pool and just cut one open exactly and then just to suck on a little nauseating whatever works for you. Had A a vendor list used to use that that what was it roar roar rocket or something like that. We're the hands at the pump. Yeah I mean you know. Necessity is the mother of invention. You get it done cool. Let's glad to see it was another the project itself super-popular in the guild people love those shop projects. And this one is a doozy. So how's it working out in terms of your grand plan and organization and stuff you wanted for this handle cabinet is what you were hoping it would be yeah. I spent a lot of time with the planning process so I think I I. What about this like not trying to pigeonhole myself into to many small details so though I designed it to be oversized so as plenty of room to expand as later things are relatively modular like the doors are just blank canvases and you can attach whatever tools you want to and I guess the interior of the cabinet is like the to the Plain Sills? Can Be Changing replaced. Whatever you want so I I did keep a kind of open ended for myself as well as others up. I want to build that that have different tools than I do. Want to change things up a little bit. But I didn't seem to be working pretty well. I'm doing to hold his now and as putting things into the cabinet. I'm like this thing is kind of empty. I thought I had more tools than this. I'll go shopping kinda key though..
