In this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking as the Labor Day Weekend holiday approaches and we plan time with our families, I decided to revisit an “Around the Shop” podcast that discussed backboards. It’s solid woodworking information with an eye toward historically accurate work.
Join 360 Woodworking every Thursday for a lively discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Glen talks with various guests about all things woodworking and some things that are slightly off topic. But the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

In this Throw-back Thursday, holiday podcast edition, Glen and former 360Woodworking.com partner Chuck Bender discuss backboard position and placement. During the talk you learn how backboards are used in period work, and why some boards ran top-to-bottom while others ran side-to-side. Plus, discover how they were attached back in the day, and how we work with backboards today in order to accommodate seasonal expansion and contraction.
