Episode 13 – Interview with Vic Tesolin author of The Minimalist Woodworker

There are many people who are reaching out in their own way during this current crisis caused by the spread of covid-19.

Lee Valley has made project resources available top keep your kids (and your spouse sane), while Bad-Axe Toolworks is another example of a great woodworking company that is reaching out with a very special covid-19 special and resources to download.

However, one of the big hearted gestures I wanted to highlight is Vic Tesolin’s offer to make a chapter of his book available to anyone who wanted to stay at home and beat the boredom. Join me as we talk a bit about his book, and what he’s up too.

Episode 12 – The Joiner and Cabinet-Maker

This fascinating account from the early 1800’s was marketed as a book for young people seeking a trade, it’s clear it was written by a knowledgeable joiner who was able to put together an incredibly compelling narrative. With the inclusion by Lost Art Press of a range of supplementary material, this complete package is a really compelling book that will transport you to the start of your apprenticeship and help you finish your first projects!

Episode 10 & 11 – Rex Krueger and I discuss Country Furniture by Aldren Watson

In these episodes I had the absolute pleasure to discuss one of my favorite books, Country Furniture by Aldren Watson, with Rex Krueger – YouTube woodworking rockstar. We discussed all manner of woodworking related topics, but don’t worry at the end of the second episode there is my usual detailed review of the book. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording this.
