  • Breaking News:
    • Nick – just got back from New York and finishing loose ends on projects
    • April – finished the fence, working on a lathe stand now
    • Jay – is back in the shop working on a painting easel
  • Submitted Questions:
    • Brian Glendenning – I need to build some shop cabinets, but have never built plywood cabinets before. I have the tooling for all of: pocket holes, dominos, or rabbets and dadoes. Which technique should I use? Would the answer changes if I was building cabinets for the kitchen rather than my shop?
    • thedanhelfgott – Are you guys involved in any local woodworking clubs or is the YouTube community your “club”?
    • austin – How do you guys make money working in your shops? How do you choose projects that will make money and how do you market and sell your work? I’d love to make money with my hobby but I’m not sure how to go about it. I don’t know about marketing or sales and I don’t know what people want to buy. help!

Episode notes:

  • Thank you to the following contributors:
    • Christopher Mann
  • Instagram
  • Breaking News:
    • Nick – Water heater – desk
    • April – Finished lathe stand, designing outdoor shower and folding outfeed table
    • Jay – Finished a new clamp rack. Like most other shop improvmeents, I should have done it sooner. Preparing for WIA and Michigan trip
  • Submitted Questions:
    • Greg – I am on the fence as to whether or not to buy a band saw. It seems like most of the stuff that you can do with one can be done with table saw, circular saw, or jigsaw. What are the pluses and minuses to a band saw?
    • Keith Crawford – what type of Epoxy do you guys use/prefer? Either to adhere things, or to fill cracks.
    • Ainslee from Australia – How do you deal with neighbors and noise? Do you worry you are annoying people?
    • eifelpfeil – Have there been projects, let’s say in the last year, you wanted to do, but did not dare to? Greetings from Germany.
    • patrickjerome – With family life and shift work life I get limited shop time so tend to rush projects. Does this happen to you? And what do you do to stop rushing?
    • sirguido1 – Favorite non woodworking hobby?
    • thedanhelfgott – How much of your woodworking skills are classroom/mentor taught vs. self taught vs YouTube taught? @jaybates86 (But I also want to know whether you’ll go with cheapo pine or $$$ cherry for the arm-war…)
    • Graham Howe – I was recently inspired by Jay’s idea for a computer armoire. I designed my own version in Sketchup and then started to work out the price for a solid cherry and cherry ply build. It came out at about $1500 in materials, the reality is that to buy a piece like this would probably be over $5000, but I am struggling with the cost. Why is it that as woodworkers we seem to find it far easier to spend lots of money on tools (when cheaper options are definitely available) and yet balk at spending money on decent quality materials?

In the third episode of The Woodworking Podcast we’re talking about #YouShould.

Episode notes:

  • Breaking News:
    • April – Lost her voice at last week’s Rockler event in Florida. Finally got her dust collector going.
    • Nick – shop projects – gotta get shop in gear – tambor door
    • Jay – Made slight improvement to the workbench leg vise, tool talks, editing last video from the Nick trip, XCarve finally leaves the shop, want to make something with dovetails.
  • Episode Topic: #youshould
  • Questions From YouTube:
    • Jake Curry – Hey guys I love the show. I currently work out of a small garage and am pretty cramped for space. I am going to be in the market for a new table saw and was wondering if I should save space and go with a higher end contractor saw or lose some of my space and go with a middle of the road cabinet saw. Thanks for the input guys.
    • Todd Fiebranz – Love you all and watch all your videos. I am also getting into doing youtube myself. I wanted to get into this because of youtubers like you all. I am not just into woodworking. I like the MotoVlog aspect also. Though cycle season is short in Wisconsin. Well I had noticed after I started following Nick that he is also in Wisconsin. So In your Second Pod Cast you had mentioned that you(Jay) will sometime be coming up to Nicks shop. Will you guys do a Meet and Greet in Wisconsin?

Rank #4: TWP5: TS Dust Collection and Shop Layout

Podcast cover

In the fifth episode of The Woodworking Podcast we’re talking about table saw dust collection, starting welding, and shop layout.

Episode notes:

  • Breaking News:
    • Nick – Finished his TV lift cabinet and now is planning his next project which is his take on a Harbor Freight organizer. He is also experimenting with different ways to showcase his finished projects.
    • April – Shot an updated shop tour and is recovering from traveling to Europe.
    • Jay – Starting on a dining table and is planning on doing a wedge through mortise and tenon sprung breadboard end.
  • Submitted Questions:
    • Chris H – I have a DC question. I have a Rigid TS3650 contractor’s saw. This has an external belt drive motor hanging off the back. Dust collection is horrible!! I have tried the Dust “Diaper” er i mean Cutter bag thingy but it was worse than using the equipped port. at the blade. My DC consists of a shop-vac and dust deputy. Any suggestions on how to improve DC on this saw?
    • Brian from Minnesota – My question is about welding. I think one of you mentioned doing this for a project for the first time. My wife wants some desks that would have a steel frame and legs, any info you can share about what you used and what you learned would be great! are there welding podcasts?
    • Anthohy Ryan – I am going going to build a table saw Paoson style http://paoson.com/downloads/en/blog/homemade-router-saw-table–n16
      Just wondering what is your preferred size of out feed table? I have plenty of room is bigger better, or should I go something more conservative. I was thinking 2400 x 2400mm (8′ x 8′) and making part of it a work bench or would this be overkill.
      Keep up the great work!!

    • Nick received an email asking about top regarding shop layout.
      • Nick suggests to think about your workflow on projects, maybe going for a U shape set up. Using SketchUp is a good option when thinking about playing with the layout of your shop.
      • April first found a place for her tablesaw, which requires the most infeed and outfeed, then placed everything else around it.
      • Jay also suggest workflow, with the focus on when you bring material into the shop. Where is it going to go and what tools will you be using first to manage it.

Rank #5: TWP4: Dust Collection Talk & Smelly Oak

Podcast cover
Read more

In the fourth episode of The Woodworking Podcast we’re talking about dust collection systems.

Episode notes:

  • Breaking News:
  • Episode Topic: Dust Collection & Practice, Practice, Practice
    • April worked with oak for the first time and didn’t much care for the scent.
    • The Sapele Jay and Nick used for the top on a cabinet messed with both of our sinuses.
    • We also talk tongue and groove panel doors which brought up a good topic of trying new techniques people haven’t tried before.
    • Practicing techniques and/or various joints again and again make for better results surprisingly.
    • April was having issues with her dust collector clogging from the planer which drove us into the ubiquitous conversation about dust collection systems.  If I had to bet, we will be talking about this again.
    • 26:12 thumbs up for a mutual ahh ha moment
    • Chisel steel quality can vary widely, even within one brand of chisels.  Nick’s Footprint chisels.
    • April took the leap onto Instagram so check out April, Nick and Jay on IG!  This took us into the deep thinking that is the #hashtag.
    • Jay has been on a therapeutic hand kick.  Let’s see where it takes him.
  • Questions From YouTube:
    • Hi guys! I listened to the podcasts today and wanted to share a little gem I stumbled upon. Jay mentioned using cardboard to keep glue off his bench during glue-ups and I think Nick mentioned stud finders at Costco. While at Costco I collect the pieces of cardboard that come between layers of products on the pallets. They let me have it for free, I think because they have to pay to get rid of it (hence them pushing boxes at the checkout). I’ve found two types there, thicker poster board (think cereal box weight) and a thinner brown type slightly heavier than paper grocery bags. Both are also great for templating. Hope you and the folks listening in find this useful. Cheers! Tracy.
    • And Nick kept referring to Tracy as “he”, and probably got that wrong, sorry Tracy!

    • daddywoofdawg – What is the sizes of screws and bolts that you seem to use the most (keep stocked).I.e You lost all your screws, bolts,So you had to restock,what sizes of screws and bolts would you get when you went to the hardware store? The reason i ask is I always seem to never have enough or have the right sizes,So I wanted to start stocking some different sizes, that will cover most projects.

    • Gary: Ever give any thought to having an automatic and/or timed drain valve for the air compressor?
    • John Martin: The three of you talked about your PC station, desktop, will it be possible for you to give us some kind of quick backstage tour showing your editing equipment, room, softwares ? Just a little video like Jay has done about his camera gear/tips and tricks.
    • Derek: My shop is effectively a deck at the cottage with a small building to store my tools. When I work I pull stuff out on the deck and when I’m done I put it all away. This means I don’t have a workbench, and I’d really like one. Jay’s workbench looks awesome, and I’d like to make something like that. The problem is it would have to live outdoors. Is it worth trying to build a workbench like Jay’s that has to be outdoors? What might be done differently in constructing it, and finishing it to help it survive the weather? I’m curious what thoughts you might have on a project like this and whether I should attempt it, or just stick with the saw horses and old door I use now.
    • David Joyner: I’m planning a dust collector install for a new shop. One thing I haven’t decided on yet is ceiling vs wall mount for the pipe. From videos it looks like ceiling-mount is pretty popular but I noticed Jay runs his along his knee wall. That looks a lot more convenient. Do you have any advice and, Jay, would you make this same decision again?

    • Andy Lynch – Do you have a specific price point in mind per item you make? I have noticed that even simple shop projects seem to be using very nice plywood or hardwood. What do you consider when selecting materials or projects? Do any of you have a video that has gone ‘viral’? What would you consider this threshold to be and would you ever build a project to specifically have this effect? (Steve Ramsey has mentioned doing just that and it was hit or miss). Do you believe it would be worth trying?

    • Jason Browder – I am a beginning woodworker and I am going to build an L-shaped computer desk so one side will be for my computer and the other for the kids computer. I would like to know what woods I could use for the top of the desk. With 2 11 year old boys it needs to be somewhat tough. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also I live just south of April so if she has any suggestion on where to go to get some good wood I would appreciate that as well.

    • Hey Jay-Pril Ferry (three in one) ! Just a reaction to your last episode, and the ‘blen/blunder’ of April with the axe handle. I had the exact same thing happening to me last week, when gluing up a carefully hand crafted mallet head in reverse on its handle… (see picture of the glue up with epoxy : https://postimg.org/image/9eznf1o0z/ – dont mind my epoxy made recipient) So unfortunately I noticed it after the epoxy had set, and had to saw the sides to make the mallet work, but now I have a tiny awkward mallet to remind me to check EVERYTHING before glue up… (https://postimg.org/image/meqecfkdz/) Kind of like measure twice cut once, but in this case, it is more check twice, glue once! Anyway, thanks for sharing this blunder April, I feel less alone in my misery Keep up the great work and podcast! All the way from Belgium, Kévin Moulart
    • Leo Jewitt – Hello! I am a listener and enjoy of the podcast. I’m an apprentice carpenter, and amateur woodworker. My question is how do you find inspiration for designing projects? I have a couple cabinet projects to tackle, and am having a hard time designing them. How do you do it? Thanks!

I was planning on getting a Wen unit but I don’t want to hang it from the ceiling. Will it be as effective on a cart like Jays or under my assembly table? I’m tired of all my chachkies getting dusty. Joanie doesn’t like it either.Jon

    • Lewi Uberg – Hi, Big fan! Let’s say I was planning a trip to the us from Norway with the family. To vacation, buy 20% of what they sell in Rockler. And if possible meet some of the YouTubeers I like to watch. Do you think it’s ok to just ask?
    • Ricky Chisum – I recently took my first project where I needed to use 8/4 hard woods, I have a few more people requesting for me to make similar items. My 1hp table saw had a very hard time so I am looking to upgrade. I am looking at the grizzly either the 2 hp or the 3hp. The 3hp is quite a bit more money. I have access to either 110 V or 220v so that is not an issue. It the 2hp enough? Thanks for all the great advice!

    • Jay – Trying to find my happy thought so I can fly like Peter Pan.
  • Submitted Questions:
    • Chris – I just got my first table saw! Hooray! I noticed that none of you use the guard on your saws. Though I am confident with and have a healthy respect for the power of the saw and keep away from the saw as much as possible, I am still a newbie. Would you recommend me use the guard? How long until I “graduate” and can take it off?
    • Paul – I was wondering about “work flow” when setting up a shop. I have heard this term many time but truthfully I am not sure if I understand what it actually is and how to actually look at my space and try to determine how to set it up. Can you discuss what work flow is and how to think about workflow when setting up a shop? 
    • Rob Sloyer – I’ve heard all of you mention your compressor setups, and it sounds like you all have pretty large, 220v?, 50+ gallon, compressors. Can you guys talk about compressed air in a little more detail? What compressor do You use, why, and what would you do the same Or differently if buying today? What air tools do you use and for what tasks? What advice do you have regarding compressed air, compressors, and air tools.

  • Submitted Questions:
    • Ben – Question: How has being a woodworking content creator changed the way that you work in your shop for better and/or worse? For example, knowing that there are armchair quarterbacks and trolls ready to pick apart any POTENTIALLY questionable thing in the comments, do you find yourself being more safety conscientious? Do you want to use tools and techniques or learn skillsets you wouldn’t have if you didn’t make videos? And the follow up: do you work differently when the cameras aren’t rolling?
    • Paul Foster – My question is with regards to sharpening chisels. What are your thoughts with regards to sharpen method of a hollow grind (as you would get from a grinding wheel) vs grinding a flat angle (as you would get from using a sharpening stone) on chisels? Do you have a preference? Do you think there may be an advantage from on technique over the other?
    • David Gunn – having u 3 in one shop, what was most fun; biggest surprise; & biggest adjustment to working around the others
