HTT005 – Kids in the Workshop

On today’s show, I discuss scraping chisels, drawer slips, bits for boring into end grain, starting the cut with a hand saw, and working with kids in the shop.

From the Shop

  • Nothing new has gone on in the shop since I finished the candle box.
  • I’m asking for some listener participation for the next episode of the podcast. Leave me a voicemail or send me a voice memo and tell me how you get motivated to get back out into the shop when you’re in a bit of a slump.
