Wood Talk #154 – Woodworking in America 2013

A special edition of Wood Talk recorded at Woodworking in America 2013 in Covington, KY. Making this recording even more special is the fact that it was the first time all three of us were in the same place at the same time.

This episode is focused solely on our experiences at Woodworking in America including our favorite classes, cool products on the vendor floor, and a recap of our meetup that took place on Saturday at the Keystone Bar & Grill. Special thanks to everyone who showed up for the meetup!

    Is that Shannon as the 3rd person? He sounds so different than in previous Woodtalk episodes.


      His voice was pretty hoarse from all of the talking. Also, I think he uses a mic at home that doesn’t quite capture his full vocal range.

        There were a few times listening back to our recording that I’m not sure which was Shannon and which was me!

    So what was the greeting like between the 3 of you? Akward hug or cool guy handshake?


      How about non-awkward hugs? :) Frankly, it was as natural as meeting up with old friends. Matt and I have met before but this was a first for Shannon and me.

        It’s always awkward for me to hug Shannon…my face is between belly button and nipples.

  3. Phenomenal show guys! Really helped take the sting out of me not being able to attend this year. You’re all really great friends!

  4. Hey guys, this was a great post show. I will admit that I was nervous meeting you guys, but when I walked in the room at Keystone Bar & Grill. My first to meet was Matt I felt very comfortable. It was great that you all took time to talk with all your fans. I’m looking forward to attending again next year.

      The pleasure was all ours Tom! Thanks for coming out to visit.


      Nice seeing you Tom. Glad you could make it out to the meetup. Matt’s not nearly as intimidating as he look on the web. :)
