  1. Thanks guys, that was an interesting discussion. I appreciate the comments about the Bosch 4100. That is the saw I own. Some other woodworkers think you have to have the biggest and best to get anything done. The Bosch isn’t the best saw, but I can make furniture. And the quality of my furniture is limited by my ability, not the saw’s.

    1. Bruce,

      Having used Glen’s 4100 at the shows two years in a row, I wouldn’t hesitate to grab one for my shop. The saw continues to amaze me with it’s accuracy, flexibility and all around gutsiness. And you have the right attitude – your tools shouldn’t define the quality of the work you do. It’s the technique, not the tool.

  2. Excellent opening podcast.
    Really interesting hearing how you both got your start.
    Each segment was great.

    This is going to become a steady component of my shop sessions.
