Great show!

Love the show and the magazine. I started woodworking to help with rheumatoid arthritis and you guys have been in my ear and in my sight since. I have learned lots from the magazine and if it doesn’t teach me something I am looking for, you can be sure they have talked to the people involved. I got into French marquetry after listening to your interview with Patrick Edwards. Thanks so much to you guys! Keep it up!

Really good right from the start.

Everyone but Mike has changed, but it has been remarkably consistent in being high quality. It’s fun to listen to and a real motivator to get out there and make something.
