Great information and amazing entertainment

I have been loving this podcast for a while, and I have been going back through the many previous episodes for a while now. The information, tips and tricks have been so helpful in my own woodworking, and the hosts are always as entertaining as they are knowledgeable. I recently took a long road trip, about twelve hours each way, and in hour ten of the return trip I came across “Think like a hand plane”. If you haven’t gotten to that yet, then you haven’t yet lived.

Like having buddies in the shop while I work

I love listening to the FWW Podcast while I’m working. It’s like having friends in the shop who give me great tips. Hearing their “smooth moves” helps you realize that even accomplished woodworkers with decades of experience are humans and make silly mistakes now and then.

Feeling part of the conversation

There are a lot of good woodworking podcasts out there and I’ve learned a great deal from them. This one is different because the cast changes and questions get answered but somebody that really knows the answer (most of the time). The thing I really like is the easy flow of conversation. Just good friends talking shop and discussing answers. The laughter and banter are real. The knowledge is very real. And yes, I signed up for Unlimited! Money well spent! Keep doing what nobody else does as well.
