Highly Entertaining and Informative

I love this show for its entertainment value, approachable-ness (sp?), and the insights to common woodworking conundrums that even I, a fledgling woodworker, experience frequently. Awesome show all-around and I pray every night that Marc, Shannon, and Matt never quit.

New listener!

I’ll be honest: I had bypassed this podcast for a while, because of the sponsor. Which makes me a horrible snob, but so be it.
Then I noticed that Shannon was one of the hosts. Shannon has become a favorite YouTube host, because my interest is mainly hand-tool woodworking, and I’ve learned a great deal from his teaching. I clicked on my first episode, and I’m hooked (currently on my fourth or fifth ep. in a row).
I still can’t quite tell (yet)who is talking when (I’ll get there), but it’s all worthwhile, and the banter is (so far) an added treat. Keep up the good work; I’ll be listening!
