Listener Questions, Comments & Smart Remarks
On this episode of the ShopNotes Podcast, we're diving deep into the mailbag to answer listener questions and respond to comments that we have received recently.
At the start of the year we made a goal of finishing a project by February 20th. As that date fast approaches we check in on the progress of Logan's nightstands, Phil's radio cabinet conversion, and a late entry by John. Will they reach their goals on time... tune in to find out.
Start at the Finish
In this episode of the ShopNotes Podcast, Phil, John, and Logan are discussing the go-to finishes that they use on their projects, plus some finishing techniques that they would like to try out sometime. And, as always, they give an update on the woodworking projects they've been working on this week.
A Madness to the Method
On this episode of the ShopNotes Podcast, we're talking about our personal go-to methods for standard woodworking techniques. Whether it's cutting mortises with a mallet and chisel or grabbing a handheld router or cutting tenons at the bandsaw or handsaw, we all have our standard mode of operation. We're discuss the when, where, and why we do the thing we do, so tune in!
Tool Hoarders Anonymous
On this episode of the ShopNotes Podcast, the guys discuss what strategies they take to avoid becoming "tool hoarders." It's all about workshop organization and knowing when to buy a new tool or get rid of an old tool in this daily struggle to stay clean.
As the World Turns
On this episode of the ShopNotes Podcast, we're talking about Logan's latest trip to Las Vegas to take a woodturning class with Jimmy Clewes and discuss everything else that has turned up in the last week in Woodsmith-land.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I look forward to each episode and enjoy the informal nature of the program without much useless chatter as some other woodworking podcasts. I can appreciate the effect of the pandemic on the show and the remote structure but please mute your cell phones. Someone’s beeps and/or vibrates during airing and I think it’s mine. Since I’m usually listening while driving, this can be a distraction.
Way too much bull sh1# and not nearly enough woodworking. Sad that the podcast of a woodworking mag is so lacking in woodworking. Hey guys, do your shop gossiping elsewhere. Good luck!
The Logan Show
I tried, I really did. I have listened for over a year but can't take it anymore. I had hoped for an educational audio podcast from an established wooodworking publication, but it's just three guys jabbering on about themselves. They pick a woodworking topic but it's just their personal stories without any meat behind it. I do not question each member's expertise as the magazine is professional and educational, unfortunately it does not translate to the podcast. My biggest issue is that the show is three-quarters Logan jabbering on about himself. He pretty much takes over each podcast he is in, hense the title - "The Logan Show". I had hoped being a woodworking magazine podcast that there would be more education and perhaps some Q&A. It has become tiresome and time to move on.
