Surprisingly good

I never liked that term “Maker”. That always conjured up images of grad school engineers 3D printing useless gadgets. I have a heavy background in CNC programing and machining. The shop I’ve been working at bought a Komo router so I’m working with wood for the first time since high school, something I never thought I’d get into. I like to be creative and over-complicate every project I do to make it as good as possible, so some of their DIY basic ideas seemed dumb to me. I don’t plan on following any of their designs, but it’s a great way to find out about new techniques. I don’t care so much about fine woodworking (you can spend a lifetime perfecting that) so it’s cool that I can get a brief overview of everything and expand and experiment with what’s attractive to me and my capabilities

Great people, great info, great listen.

Been listening to you guys for a couple of months and still trying to find good makers to follow! You do a great job of giving info of people who are the show with you but would definitely love if you slowed down/ restated or spelled out some of the makers especially on the obsessed with category and which channel to find them. You mention people who make stuff that sounds really great ex Korean guy that Chris mentioned in the breakfast video but I have no idea how to spell that or find him. Love listening to you guys!

I can’t help but imagine....

First off your podcast is fantastic! I started from the beginning and I’m currently on episode 25, I’m ambitious to catch up to the current episodes. Im trying to absorb in all your great info and dry humor...As a beginner woodworker I appreciate your guys approach to appeal to the amateur woodworker. Other podcasts or materials make it seem you need to use expensive hardwoods to be a respected woodworker. You guys give me confidence that it’s not all about the hardwoods all the time. Once a maker always a maker! I do have to mention something that I noticed since the first episode. To be honest I didn’t know who Chris was before the podcast (sorry Chris) but I have to say I can’t help but imagine Micheal Cera’s face on Chris’s body every time Chris talks. They sound EXACTLY the same!! Thanks - Anthony
