Christmas Trees – 360w360 E.208

Christmas trees are not only a festive sign of the season, they're a good resource too.In this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking the 360 guys discuss what they do with they Christmas trees.

Join the guys twice each week for six lively minutes of discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Chuck & Glen, and sometimes a surprise guest, all have their own opinions. Sometimes they agree and sometimes they don’t, but the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

Christmas trees


While woodworkers often have a reputation for being frugal, few recognize an abundant resource in their own homes. We know that not everyone celebrates Christmas, but there’s no reason you can’t benefit from it in the end. Every year millions of trees are cut down, in the prime of their lives, for the sole purpose of decorating homes for a few weeks. And what happens to those fallen victims of holiday cheer? They’re sent to the grinder long before their time.

We at 360 WoodWorking believe woodworkers are overlooking an opportunity to turn blatant waste into something positive for the world. Reclaim your tree (or those in your neighborhood). Learn what to look for when purchasing, or salvaging, a tree and how you can put it to use in your shop.

We wish each and every one of you a festive holiday season and a happy, and healthy New Year.

  1. Happy Holidays to Glenn and Chuck and families.

    1. And to you and Vicky too, Elmer.

  2. Perhaps we have been into the eggnog a little early?
    Happy holidays to all.
    Thanks -for another great year- Don

    1. Not early enough, Don. Not nearly.

  4. Merry Christmas
    Glen and Chuck
    You guys are really a gift to me. Thank you for putting up with all the questions on
    my projects this year and getting me on the straight and narrow. My best wishes for you and your families . Chuck maybe Santa will drop a Shinto into your stocking this year. Cheers

    1. Kerry,

      With that parting Shinto comment, it’s apparent you’re nowhere near the straight-and-narrow…

      Merry Christmas.

  5. I think the ethyl alcohol should go in the Shellac instead of your Eggnog

    1. Mark,
      Would ethyl alcohol mix well with the Jack Daniels? We’d hate to leave that out of the eggnog!
      Happy Holidays

  6. Seriously dudes, this was a late April Fools joke right?

    1. Chet,
      I think that all the holiday music and shopping finally took its toll on Chuck and me. That, or the three-year-old, bourbon-flavored fruitcake was past its “good by” date.
