Just a reaction to your last episode, and the 'blen/blunder' of April with the axe handle. I had the exact same thing happening to me last week, when gluing up a carefully hand crafted mallet head in reverse on its handle... (see picture of the glue up with epoxy : https://postimg.org/image/9eznf1o0z/ - dont mind my epoxy made recipient) So unfortunately I noticed it after the epoxy had set, and had to saw the sides to make the mallet work, but now I have a tiny awkward mallet to remind me to check EVERYTHING before glue up... (https://postimg.org/image/meqecfkdz/) Kind of like measure twice cut once, but in this case, it is more check twice, glue once! Anyway, thanks for sharing this blunder April, I feel less alone in my misery ;) Keep up the great work and podcast! All the way from Belgium, Kévin Moulart Leo Jewitt - Hello! I am a listener and enjoy of the podcast. I'm an apprentice carpenter, and amateur woodworker. My question is how do you find inspiration for designing projects? I have a couple cabinet projects to tackle, and am having a hard time designing them. How do you do it? Thanks!

Ricky Chisum - I recently took my first project where I needed to use 8/4 hard woods, I have a few more people requesting for me to make similar items. My 1hp table saw had a very hard time so I am looking to upgrade. I am looking at the grizzly either the 2 hp or the 3hp. The 3hp is quite a bit more money. I have access to either 110 V or 220v so that is not an issue. It the 2hp enough? Thanks for all the great advice!

I would like for you to discuss the differences between the Dewalt planer that Jay has the Dewalt planer that's one below what Jay has and the triton planer that April has. Is this the hold out and get the big one purchase or is this something that can grow with your shop. I don't plan to run any major length boards or thicknesses through the planer. If you read reviews about all these planers they all are great and they' all suck .it's hard to get a good Idea based on reviews. ron rizzo - Big fan of the podcast.

The best solution I have found is using a 50/50 mix of laundry detergent and water. Let the blade soak for a few minutes and with a little scrubbing with a soft bristled brush, then rinse and dry and your as good as new.

Regarding the one guy’s question on bushing “poop” contaminating his friction polish finish on his pens, I have several suggestions.First, he’s likely either cutting the bushing slightly during turning or sanding them when sanding. Either way, that’s obviously where the dust is coming from. You guys mentioned that pretty much.Also, compressed air to blow off the turned tube after turning and sanding is always a good idea regardless. Here’s what I do to avoid this: 1. The best way is to get rid of the bushings completely when finishing. I don’t use a pen mandrel. I turn pens between a cone tipped “dead” center in the headstock and a normal cone live center in the tailstock. After turning and sanding to the bushings, take the bushings off and just hold the tube between those centers. Obviously don’t clamp down too tight as the turned pen tube is pretty fragile. Anyway, apply finish or additional wet sanding or whatever from there. The down side to this is you can only turn one tube at a time, so for kits with upper and lower tubes, they have to be done separately, but I’ve found this to be the best approach over all. Here’s a link to the “dead” center I’m talking about. http://amzn.to/2goZwnw 2. If you don’t have a dead center or don’t want to buy one, another option is to take the turned tubes off the mandrel and replace the bushings from the kit with “nylon” finishing bushings. These are intended for doing CA Finishes, but they work fine for any type of finish. They are non stick and cone shaped so they center the pen tube. Multiple pairs can be used to do multiple pen tubes on the mandrel at the same time. Here’s a link to these: http://amzn.to/2go3qJt 3. Finally, the last option would be to just turn your own finishing bushings out of small scraps of wood. Turn a ¼ to 3/8 tenon to fit the pen tube on a small scrap of wood (pen blank cutoff for example). Then turn another 3/8 or so section larger than the tenon but about the same or smaller diameter than the pen kit bushings. Make a pair of these and replace the kit bushing with the shop made wooden ones (these could be turned from acrylic as well). Then finish the pen blank as normal. Just a few options to avoid bushing “poop” contaminating the pen finish. In case it’s of interest. Kevin "Peter Bako - Listening to episode 23 and you are talking about sharp blades. I'm a beginner woodworker myself, only at it for a few months, but getting to where I need to start to sharpen my various tools. Any tips on how to get started with that? Don't have sharpening tools/stones/etc., so what would be the basics to get started with and any guides to help hold things at the right angle? Mostly have chisels to worry about for now, but also have a few old handsaws that would be nice to fix up. Sandpaper and a flat plate for the abrasve is a good place to start.

I'm am trying to decide between the Ridgid R4512. Or the grizzly G0715P, just wondering if you guys have had any experience on either one? Or have heard some pros or cons?Thanks and keep up the good work. Barry Myers - I've been turning pens for several years and still struggle with one thing: when I use a light-colored wood (maple, poplar, etc.), when doing the final sanding and finishing (I use a friction polish), the grain in the wood sometimes looks dirty because a bit of the metal from the bushings gets picked up in the finishing cloth (I use paper towels or small pieces of old t-shirt material). I don't have a good solution to overcome this other than to remove the pen from the mandrel and replace the metal bushings with something plastic or similar. When turning lots of pens, that extra 2-3 minute changeover for each pen is frustrating. Any ideas? Dave Gilbey - I'm a newbie... so excuse the stupid question(s). What are some ways to prevent tear out from birch plywood when cutting on table saw ( it's a job site saw.)??? Can you suggest ways to minimize?(e.g. Change the blade?... put working side down when cutting? ... painters tape? How much glue ?? I seem to have either no squeeze out or a river of squeeze out... can't seem to dial this in. Suggestions appreciated Can you give some suggestions for creating dados with a trim (small hand size )router?

I normally see this difference while crosscutting on the table saw. Sometimes the stock will pushed all the way through the blade and passed the riving knife and then moved away from the blade, other times times the stock is pushed into the blade just far enough that the cut is completed and then backed out of the blade. I've found myself doing both as well. Is there a reason for one technique over the other, or is one way safer? Jon - I’ve been struggling with decent dust and chip collection on my drill press.

I started a project for a live edge serving board and noticed it had a significant cup running the length of the middle of the board. The material is 1" thick. I was wondering if you had any tips for getting the cup out of the board? Lewi Uberg from Norway - The problem here is that we are just 5 million people, so much of the tools etc. you use (and I’m a tool nerd) is hard to get. In example i only know of 2 stores that sell t-tracks in this country. I've bought somethings from the US, but we use the metric system, so many things that would help me, would just confuse me. What’s your opinions on the metric system? Ian Thatcher - I see tons of people using blue painters tape on their drill bits to mark the depth they want to drill a hole. I have never had great results with this the tape always seems to move on me. I could not find my tape one day and looked through the drawer and found some teflon pipe thread tape and was amazed by how well it works. Everyone has at least one roll of it if they have done any plumbing projects, i know i buy one every time i need to do some plumbing. Its bright white so its visible and it sticks right to the bit and does not move. When i am done with it i just zip the bit through a piece of scrap and it is gone. I have not seen anyone use this before and really want to spread the word. ed gonzales - have you had experience with woodriver planes?

I have several impacts but seem to grab the non impacts lately to reduce noise & still get good results. Scott Schneid - I have a craftsman miter saw that the fence is not straight The current fence is all one piece and it bows in just behind where the blade comes down. Hope this makes sense. Any good ideas on how to build another fence or temporary fence? My thought is if I attach a board I will end up cutting it in the middle which may throw off the squareness. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated. Jeff in Oregon - I've never used a wipe on poly. What are the benefits of that over a more traditional brush on oil or water based poly?

I have a 18 gauge air nailer but I'm tempted to convert to a battery nailer so I don't have to deal with my pathetic 3 gallon air compressor anymore. But battery operated nailers are quite pricey. Also, in the near future I have an entire basement to renovate with all new trim so I feel the purchase is warranted. But I may just be trying to convince myself of that. Just like a new band saw... Chad - I am planning on attending the Woodworking in America convention in Covington, KY next month and would love to get some advice before then.

It seems like most of the stuff that you can do with one can be done with table saw, circular saw, or jigsaw. What are the pluses and minuses to a band saw? Keith Crawford - what type of Epoxy do you guys use/prefer? Either to adhere things, or to fill cracks. Ainslee from Australia - How do you deal with neighbors and noise? Do you worry you are annoying people? eifelpfeil - Have there been projects, let's say in the last year, you wanted to do, but did not dare to? Greetings from Germany. patrickjerome - With family life and shift work life I get limited shop time so tend to rush projects. Does this happen to you? And what do you do to stop rushing? sirguido1 - Favorite non woodworking hobby? thedanhelfgott - How much of your woodworking skills are classroom/mentor taught vs. self taught vs YouTube taught? @jaybates86 (But I also want to know whether you'll go with cheapo pine or $$$ cherry for the arm-war...) Graham Howe - I was recently inspired by Jay's idea for a computer armoire. I designed my own version in Sketchup and then started to work out the price for a solid cherry and cherry ply build. It came out at about $1500 in materials, the reality is that to buy a piece like this would probably be over $5000, but I am struggling with the cost. Why is it that as woodworkers we seem to find it far easier to spend lots of money on tools (when cheaper options are definitely available) and yet balk at spending money on decent quality materials?

Though I am confident with and have a healthy respect for the power of the saw and keep away from the saw as much as possible, I am still a newbie. Would you recommend me use the guard? How long until I "graduate" and can take it off? Paul - I was wondering about "work flow" when setting up a shop. I have heard this term many time but truthfully I am not sure if I understand what it actually is and how to actually look at my space and try to determine how to set it up. Can you discuss what work flow is and how to think about workflow when setting up a shop?  Rob Sloyer - I've heard all of you mention your compressor setups, and it sounds like you all have pretty large, 220v?, 50+ gallon, compressors.

Just a little video like Jay has done about his camera gear/tips and tricks. Derek: My shop is effectively a deck at the cottage with a small building to store my tools. When I work I pull stuff out on the deck and when I'm done I put it all away. This means I don't have a workbench, and I'd really like one. Jay's workbench looks awesome, and I'd like to make something like that. The problem is it would have to live outdoors. Is it worth trying to build a workbench like Jay's that has to be outdoors? What might be done differently in constructing it, and finishing it to help it survive the weather? I'm curious what thoughts you might have on a project like this and whether I should attempt it, or just stick with the saw horses and old door I use now. David Joyner: I'm planning a dust collector install for a new shop. One thing I haven't decided on yet is ceiling vs wall mount for the pipe. From videos it looks like ceiling-mount is pretty popular but I noticed Jay runs his along his knee wall. That looks a lot more convenient. Do you have any advice and, Jay, would you make this same decision again?

In the fifth episode of The Woodworking Podcast we’re talking about table saw dust collection, starting welding, and shop layout. Episode notes: Breaking News: Nick – Finished his TV lift cabinet and now is planning his next project which is his take on a Harbor Freight organizer. He is also experimenting with different ways to showcase his finished projects. April – Shot an updated shop tour and is recovering from traveling to Europe. Jay – Starting on a dining table and is planning on doing a wedge through mortise and tenon sprung breadboard end. Submitted Questions: Chris H - I have a DC question. I have a Rigid TS3650 contractor's saw. This has an external belt drive motor hanging off the back. Dust collection is horrible!! I have tried the Dust "Diaper" er i mean Cutter bag thingy but it was worse than using the equipped port. at the blade. My DC consists of a shop-vac and dust deputy. Any suggestions on how to improve DC on this saw? Magnum Magnetics Saw Stache Ronald Walters YouTube Channel Brian from Minnesota - My question is about welding. I think one of you mentioned doing this for a project for the first time. My wife wants some desks that would have a steel frame and legs, any info you can share about what you used and what you learned would be great! are there welding podcasts? YouTube Channels that include welding: RetroWeld Matt DiResta, Jimmy DiResta, Laura Kampf, I Like to Make Stuff, Make Something Welding Channels: ChuckE2009, Welding Tips and Tricks Anthohy Ryan - I am going going to build a table saw Paoson style http://paoson.com/downloads/en/blog/homemade-router-saw-table--n16 Just wondering what is your preferred size of out feed table? I have plenty of room is bigger better, or should I go something more conservative. I was thinking 2400 x 2400mm (8' x 8') and making part of it a work bench or would this be overkill. Keep up the great work!! Laney outfeed table Nick received an email asking about top regarding shop layout. Nick suggests to think about your workflow on projects, maybe going for a U shape set up. Using SketchUp is a good option when thinking about playing with the layout of your shop. April first found a place for her tablesaw, which requires the most infeed and outfeed, then placed everything else around it. Jay also suggest workflow, with the focus on when you bring material into the shop. Where is it going to go and what tools will you be using first to manage it.

In the fourth episode of The Woodworking Podcast we're talking about dust collection systems. Episode notes: Breaking News: Nick - April hit 200,00 subscribers on her youtube channel! Come see us at The Woodworking Shows in Atlanta, April 2016.  See all of who will be in Atlanta.  I will also be at the Milwaukee show in March. April - Is headed to Germany for some events. Jay - Finished his tool tote and worked with Shawn Stone to build two shop air filter units.  He started thinking about his kitchen table build by getting some wood from Pickens Hardwoods. Episode Topic: Dust Collection & Practice, Practice, Practice April worked with oak for the first time and didn't much care for the scent. The Sapele Jay and Nick used for the top on a cabinet messed with both of our sinuses. We also talk tongue and groove panel doors which brought up a good topic of trying new techniques people haven't tried before. Practicing techniques and/or various joints again and again make for better results surprisingly. April was having issues with her dust collector clogging from the planer which drove us into the ubiquitous conversation about dust collection systems.  If I had to bet, we will be talking about this again. 26:12 thumbs up for a mutual ahh ha moment Chisel steel quality can vary widely, even within one brand of chisels.  Nick's Footprint chisels. April took the leap onto Instagram so check out April, Nick and Jay on IG!  This took us into the deep thinking that is the #hashtag. Jay has been on a therapeutic hand kick.  Let's see where it takes him. Questions From YouTube: Hi guys! I listened to the podcasts today and wanted to share a little gem I stumbled upon. Jay mentioned using cardboard to keep glue off his bench during glue-ups and I think Nick mentioned stud finders at Costco. While at Costco I collect the pieces of cardboard that come between layers of products on the pallets. They let me have it for free, I think because they have to pay to get rid of it (hence them pushing boxes at the checkout). I've found two types there, thicker poster board (think cereal box weight) and a thinner brown type slightly heavier than paper grocery bags. Both are also great for templating. Hope you and the folks listening in find this useful. Cheers! Tracy. And Nick kept referring to Tracy as "he", and probably got that wrong, sorry Tracy!

Episode Topic: #youshould Questions From YouTube: Jake Curry - Hey guys I love the show. I currently work out of a small garage and am pretty cramped for space. I am going to be in the market for a new table saw and was wondering if I should save space and go with a higher end contractor saw or lose some of my space and go with a middle of the road cabinet saw. Thanks for the input guys. Todd Fiebranz - Love you all and watch all your videos. I am also getting into doing youtube myself. I wanted to get into this because of youtubers like you all. I am not just into woodworking. I like the MotoVlog aspect also. Though cycle season is short in Wisconsin. Well I had noticed after I started following Nick that he is also in Wisconsin.

Everyone tells me just be yourself but, It's hard trying to be yourself while on a video. Sort of breaking the ice. Trevor Vera - will you all do a build off, say like the 2x4 challenge, or what could make with minimum tools.
