WWGOA LIVE! March 2015

I love teaching woodworking, and wish I could come into each of your shops to help you out. I recently did, sort of. We ran our first WWGOA LIVE session, in which folks could ask questions that I answered live. Did you miss it? No problem. We’ve archived the entire hour, and you can watch it at your leisure. Watch for our next session in the near future. I can’t wait for another chance to help you out in your shop.

    How do I make a zero clearance for a skil 3305 table saw.

    Enjoyed your large cabinet video. However if you use an impact driver for driving screws don't you run the risk of snapping the heads off? I use the impact driver to drill the holes and he driver with an appropriate torque setting to drive the screws to prevent snapping he heads off. And, yes, the two units do make the job go much aster. Don

    During this video you mentioned letting your hardwoods "acclimate" to your shop. I've read (or heard somewhere) that after cutting your wood you should place it in a large "trash bag" to have it maintain its moisture content. Would you agree that is a proper suggestion?

    Great first live show George - well done and many thanks to the team for a brilliant start to a great format! Nice to have the family involved - my wife loved Shelia the Shop Dog, and now thinks my spending on "must-have" tools (power and hand) might have some validity, so special big thanks for that! I thought the team had done a great job in selecting questions, although the rather lame "how much space do I need behind my table saw" was probably below the standard I expect from WWGoA, as this is an impossible question to answer: someone may be making jewelry boxes, another may be making an ocean going yacht, but you have to appeal to a wide audience with a range of skills and expectations: so a comment not a criticism. Your piece on the risks of using a thicknesser to flatten a board with a slight bow was well said. Whilst your knowledge and presentation style is strong: apart from the 2 board glue-up, the rest was passive - I did not see any chips flying! I appreciate real live demos are a big challenge, and yours was a live event, but maybe you could cut-in some pre-recorded footage to illustrate a point and also give your stars a few minutes breather! Anyhow, I enjoyed the event and look forward to the next one. Kind regards Charlie

    Very cool--sorry I wasn't able to attend live. Would love to see another live event happen in the future.

    Great forum, one I would watch again. Good use of technology and great selection on the questions.

    How often do you sharpen router bits?

    Is it possible to cut dovetails on a dovetail jig longer than the jig allows? Thanks Joe Tennessee

    On my 15 year old Powermatic cabinet saw with a 3/4" dado set I cannot ger a full arbor nut. What is safe.
