Encore Presentation: Save the Woodshop

Encore Presentation: Save the Woodshop

Asa Christiana, editor of Fine Woodworking Magazine, joins Adam and Ray for a podcast about woodworking basics, making furniture, and why Adam can’t find a decent stuffed cabbage in LA.


Show Summary

Adam and Ray welcome Asa Christiana, editor of Fine Woodworking Magazine, to the show. The guys look through Asa’s plethora of magazines, and Adam discusses the importance of giving out good swag. The guys also talk about Asa’s experience in West Africa, and why American society seems to ignore the wrencher/builder gene. Later they look through pictures of furniture that Asa built and talk about the zen of heading into the woodshop.

The guys then respond to a video question about a couple of hanging drywall problems. They also discuss a couple woodworking related emails, and jump to the phones. Calls include fixing a cutting board, repairing a porch, and a flooded driveway. As the show wraps up, the guys break down the difference between happiness and satisfaction.
