The Wood Whisperer

Got a chance to hang out with TWW yesterday as he had a release party for his new book, The Hybrid Woodworker. He and his family grilled out for the guest, allowed us to tour the shop, amd answered questions for over 3 hours for us amateurs like myself. He even had a raffle where everyone that entered, won something!
Very down-to-earth guy.
For those of you who haven't, I urge you to check out his website, The Wood Whisperer. Entertaining and educational.

Actually, he didn't. He did mention that he gets a lot of tools as demos which is why he tries not to sound as if he is plugging for them because he knows they are expensive.

Very cool. He seems like a nice guy from the videos. With Norm retired he is my favorite woodworking video craftsman. Wish he had enough sponsors to not have the paid guild. I can't afford it and would love to see more of his shows.

Yes one of the sites you can learn from since Norm went. Don't want to be rude but I find a lot of them gibbering idiots. Oh , that probably is rude.

If it doesn't feel safe, it probably isn't.
