Woodchat with the Wood Whisperer: Woodchat Transcript July 18th, 2012

Tonight we were joined by Marc Spagnuolo, the Wood Whisperer for a great #Woodchat. Marc discussed many things with us including his entry into woodworking, the shop he’s building, his free site and plans for the Guild. If you haven’t joined the guild, you really should. Learn everything you can and then get out in your shop and give it a try.

@Black_SheepWW: Hey everyone! #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: Actually we were thinking of puppets to re-enact questions and techniques. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @Tumblewood Great the Poly finally dried. Tomorrow I carve. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Get your woodworking questions ready for some Q&A – got challenges and need answers? Ask @Woodwhisperer #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @lucaspeters he’ll just tell you about ALL my manopause moments. #woodchat

@allenworb: @woodwhisperer, start more content syndication through established networks #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @Tumblewood He’s running new hardware or software. #bugs #woodchat

@superdav721: Marc you have been putting good content in the free site. We appreciate it. #woodchat

@ToddInMontana: @MBWPodcast was thinking I might stop by & install electric cords on your hand planes while I’m out that way #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: Question πŸ™‚ If you’re routing a groove in a table top for inlay (curved), how would you go about it to fit the inlay 2 the groove? #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @Tumblewood I’m thinking Team America style…or just retired muppets. #woodchat

@superdav721: @woodwhisperer do you still live feed from your shop? #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Have the website attacks abated for Marc? #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @MBWPodcast Awesome! #woodchat

@Black_SheepWW: Todd, that would be a good April fools joke. #woodchat

@WatkinsWoodWork: @MBWPodcast Both are good #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @MBWPodcast I’d go team america #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @ToddInMontana I’ll start buying extras for when I cut through them. #woodchat

@ToddInMontana: @Black_SheepWW Oh that would! #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: Props to @Underscorefunk! He rocks the designs! #woodchat

@ToddInMontana: @MBWPodcast yes, that can be a problem:) #woodchat

@allenworb: @woodwhisperer @uppercutwood there seems to be a correlation between woodworkers and digital media people folks. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: John is just a great guy in general, as is Marc. A big reason I like this community is the quality of the people. #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @WoodWhisperer if you were a Festool tool, which one would you be? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Ha! RT @ToddInMontana: @MBWPodcast was thinking I might stop by & install electric cords on your hand planes while Im out that way #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: it’s about 3/16 #woodchat

@WVWoodshed: Where or what is the best method for following along at #woodchat? I am trying to utilize my iPhone!

@FlairWoodworks: Here’s what an inlay kit looks like: http://t.co/bsMndvzf #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @mlehikoinen You could rout the groove, then bend it to fit in if the curve isn’t too severe. #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @uppercutwood that could be shocking with my metal bodied planes LOL!!! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @woodwhisperer How many people in your film crew? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @WVWoodshed From here, with a computer: http://t.co/XwSA87MB #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @FlairWoodworks Thanks Chris … always nice to get a 2nd opinion πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @WVWoodshed http://t.co/GFx6s6Aj #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @MBWPodcast I could help you with that metal problem. πŸ˜‰ #woodchat

@superdav721: @woodwhisperer What type of Japanese Chisels do you own? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Good one, Scott! RT @SMeekWoodworks: @MBWPodcast I could help you with that metal problem. πŸ˜‰ #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @BillGriggs probably the same as at MBW…3…me, myself and I CHORTLE #woodchat

@JimAAshley: I wonder if our facilities dept would allow dog holes in my cube desk. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: RT @Tumblewood: John is just a great guy in general, as is Marc. A big reason I like this community is the quality of the people. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @JimAAshley Call them holes for wires? #woodchat

@Black_SheepWW: @MBWPodcast @uppercutwood Matt, just wear some heavy rubber gloves, you’ll be fine! #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @SMeekWoodworks I think I could sell the safety aspect to the wife if that was the case. “I won’t get fried if I use them…” #woodchat

@Tumblewood: XL700! Duh #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @WoodWhisperer a big hairy domino at that!!! #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @FlairWoodworks there you go… mulit monitor setup requires proper cable management #woodchat

@woodshaver101: how long as marc been he donewoodworking and what training has #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @Black_SheepWW stand on a rubber mat too and I’m all set. #woodchat

@SMeekWoodworks: @MBWPodcast That is a winning argument my friend. So which should fill out the order for? hehe #woodchat

@asliceofwood: @JimAAshley put in an end vise and hidden tool chest? #woodchat

@DustyDeveloper: #woodchat anyway to get the video feed on an iPad?

@Tumblewood: @woodshaver101 Mark, he has a good bio page that covers that. In case they don’t talk about it #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood Tell the story about how you nearly got killed. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: It sounds like @uppercutwood is saying “Ross”. What he means is ROS = Random Orbit Sander. #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @SMeekWoodworks yes #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Can anybody answer this? RT @DustyDeveloper: #woodchat anyway to get the video feed on an iPad?

@woodshaver101: @Tumblewood thanks vic i will have to check it out #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @DustyDeveloper I don’t know if this broadcast over youtube, or just posts after #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @asliceofwood you bet… disguise it as a typical cubicle file cabinet… vise might be more tricky. #woodchat

@sleepydogwood: I almost bought a 608 bedrock at an auction last weekend but got out bidded #Woodchat

@MBWPodcast: A mess up when you’re solo filming is extremely frustrating! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FlairWoodworks @dustydeveloper iPad doesnt’ support Flash, and youtube is currently all Flash #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @WoodWhisperer has been woodworking for 10-12 years. How long have you been woodworking? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @Tumblewood broadcasting on youtube now #woodchat


@asliceofwood: @JimAAshley Hide it behind a tall trash can #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Because there’s nobody to blame? RT @MBWPodcast: A mess up when you’re solo filming is extremely frustrating! #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @uppercutwood well..there ya go #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @MBWPodcast Tell me about it. #woodchat

@allenworb: @woodwhisperer what is the price range of building a separate building like that? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Yes RT @FlairWoodworks It sounds like @uppercutwood is saying “Ross”. What he means is ROS = Random Orbit Sander. #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: @WoodWhisperer miserable … that sounds familiar … then I was laid off and started being my own boss … Love it! #woodchat

@MBWPodcast: @FlairWoodworks Nope…because you keep telling the idiot making the mistake to knock it off and he never listens! #woodchat

@ToddInMontana: @uppercutwood How do you broadcast a text chat on YouTube? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @ToddInMontana text isn’t broadcast on youtube, video is. text + video at http://t.co/Dmt3o9XS #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @ToddInMontana I think he’s putting the text in as the cc language #woodchat

@JimAAshley: @asliceofwood good idea, gotta find one tall enough… or maybe call vise handle laptop bag hanger. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Yes. I wrote a custom app for that RT @Tumblewood: @ToddInMontana I think hes putting the text in as the cc language #woodchat

@superdav721: @woodwhisperer for advanced studies where do recommend starting? #woodchat

@ToddInMontana: @superdav721 I hope you didn’t think I was yelling at you I was merely being emphatic πŸ™‚ #woodchat

@mlehikoinen: Not just practice, but pushing yourself to try new techniques as well #woodchat

@Tumblewood: @WatkinsWoodWork Once I was able to have a hands on class, I will definitely do more. #woodchat

@superdav721: @WatkinsWoodWork I am running into dead ends on the learning. I need new paths. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: The new guild will allow you that #woodchat

@Black_SheepWW: @Tumblewood @WatkinsWoodWork I took a few classes with Jeff Miller and it help out a lot. #woodchat

@superdav721: Thanks everybody, great show, thanks Marc and thank you hosts. #woodchat

@Tumblewood: I would have paid about 120K for my shop..but, I chose to spend a lot of years building. Wish I’d paid up front. #woodchat
