#49: Answering More Listener Questions

We apologize for the delay in publishing and the poor audio quality on this episode. Our typical recording system for the show went on the fritz and we were trying to get a response from their support system to no avail. We had to use the YouTube live stream audio, which isn't the best but hopefully still good enough. Thanks!

We’re on Patreon!

We've added a $250 goal for a weekend show! There are tons of support levels, with rewards including a weekly After Show, monthly hangouts, and more. Our top patrons this week are Make Build Modify, Master of None, and Deby Brooke! New Patrons: David Prevost.

Keith Johnson Custom Woodworking :

What's your approach for gluing up long miters? Similar to what you would have on a waterfall table.

I want to make a French cleat wall, only I need it to hang from the rafter in the basement (or what ever them long peace’s of wood are called)

Sean Foushee :

If you needed to glue up table tops but didn't have a domino, would you go with biscuits, dowels, or just use cauls? 5-6 table tops minimum

Doc Darkness :

If you could choose one material to work with, what would it be and why?

With Christmas coming up, what kind of gifts are you guys going to make?

Patrick's WorkShop :

Question for full time content creators how do you guys manage your time with building, editing, social media, and family and friends
