I'd love to tell you we're starting a new build project today or I had a new tool or two to share (which I do, but that's for another day) but instead this is just a quick "heads up" of what's happening and NOT happening with the show. Unfortunately the warm days of early summer draw me out of the basement and in to the fresh air and sunlight. But luckily for the show, coming in the next several weeks, that same fresh air and sunlight will be SO HOT I'll be retreating to the basement to enjoy the rest of my summer months. So new content is just around the corner, I swear! Off on a tangent...in honor of Father's Day I have a couple of great titles written by Jack McKee of www.woodshop4kids.com. "Woodshop for Kids" & "Builder Boards" are two books filled with great ideas and projects to help you introduce your kids, grandkids, nieces or nephews...whoever they are...to woodworking. Because Father's Day is next weekend (as I'm posting this) I'm offering copies of these books to one winner next Sunday. How do you get entered? Either email me a picture of the project you built with your young woodworker, or a description of it, or even leave a comment about it in today's shownotes at the website.
Matt's Basement Workshop, hosted by Matt Vanderlist, can be found at www.mattsbasementworkshop.com and is the first and longest running woodworking podcast. Since 2006, the show's primary focus is on sharing experiences and educating woodworkers, with an emphasis on the small shop/home woodworker. Tool reviews, hand tool and power tool education, project builds and answering audience questions. The audience interaction is what makes it fun, online and in person. If woodworking is your passion...stop by and say "hi!"
