Episode 49 – Time

49_TimeIn this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking, the guys talk time. Whenever we’re out talking or doing presentations, and we bring up topics such as how to save time in the shop, we generally get the same response. We’re told, “This is my hobby. I don’t really care how long something takes.” To which we reply, “Do you ever get enough time in the shop?” During the six-minute discussion, many ideas come to light. After listening, if you have a comment, please leave it below.

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.

  1. I say that I’m a freezer hunter and not a trophy hunter. At this point in my life (as well as every other point I can remember), I have built things for their functional utility. While I want them to look nice, spending a year or more to make an art piece is not my priority.

    1. Keith,

      Taking the time necessary to build a project properly, to me, is always the best way to work. If a project is involved enough to warrant a year’s labor, so be it. But to spend a year on a project that should take days tends to be morally defeating for most people. I’ve taught thousands of people woodworking, and with only a few exceptions, most want to actually have something to show for their effort (and quite often to justify the expense in time, space and money for their hobby). I still say, work as efficiently as your curiosity allows – sometimes it’s just nice to get into the shop and explore.

  2. So we agree there’s never enough time in the shop and we want to get things done. How about some discussions on those ways to save time in the shop? Always open to suggestions!

    1. Ben,

      There are a few topics coming up about timesavers for the shop, but we’ll brainstorm some others for the next recording session.

      Thanks.

  3. Time isn’t an issue for me in my shop unless things are going really good out there and I don’t want to stop. Then, time runs way too fast.
