What’s new/ what are we working on?

  • Zack:



Eric Osterhout

Are there any tips you have for working Live oak after it’s dry? I have a planer and hand planes. I’m really concerned that there will be some crazy tear out. Also since this is some pretty dense stuff running around 2700 on the Janka hardness scale I’ll most likely be tough on any blades.

Salvage Yard Design:  I really want to get into a bit of leather-work, what would be a good starter kit of tools and a good resource on stitching? Cheers! Travis

WB Fine Woodworking: n an earlier episode Zac mentioned a website he was involved in that had free music for videos. I thought I bookmarked the site but evidently I didn’t. What’s the URL? Thanks.

Theduc: what cheap tools have you got, that you have found to really liked. My example is a cheap 2$ in closed magnet that I use to pick up little steel bits off the work bench

Joke of the week

Tony Oltmann: Someone asked me what I did for a living. I told them I was a YouTuber. They told me, “sorry, I’m not following you.”
