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.

A fairly common theme to the questions the guys get concerns grain orientation as applied to joinery. Woodworkers often have trouble visualizing how and why they should join pieces of wood. Dovetails are probably the most difficult joint for woodworkers to comprehend why the grain direction has to run a specific way. The joint itself has some mechanical hold, which is why we see woodworkers incorrectly joining the end of a board to the side. It’s an easy mistake to make, but one that could cost you the entire project when the joint fails.
