Quarantine Woodworking

I’ve loved hearing about how you all have handled woodworking during the quarantine. I loved this last episode where several of you shared books you’ve been reading. I was just curious, have any of you ever watched/listened to/read Paul Sellers in England? He’s been a major influence in my woodworking. I’m a dentist by trade and am very careful with my hands so I started with hand tools only. As I’ve lost my fear of power tools, he’s really influenced how I approach my work, even with power tools since he’s made me better versed with hand tools. I would love to hear your thoughts on his work. Thanks for a great podcast guys!

Great, but...

I’m really enjoying these. The biggest challenge for me is the differences in sound quality. Two of the last three episodes I’ve listened too had sound issues where I couldn’t hear one or more people, or they were cutting out. The most recent episode required me to turn my volume way up for one person, then get blasted by audio when the others talked. Please work on this.

As for as quality content goes, these are great. I’m even inclined to look through my ShopNotes CD/DVD for some new projects. Just don’t tell my wife. I haven’t finished her sewing center yet that I started nearly 6-years ago...

Almost great podcast

The content is great, as are the hosts. However, one if the hosts, (Logan) has the most annoying habit (maybe it is just my pet peeve) of using the word “right?” in nearly every sentence. Hopefully, this constructive criticism will make him change, or i will just have to unsubscribe.
