More With RECO-BKLYN’s Roger Benton – 360w360 E.257

In this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking, Roger Benton, co-owner of Re-Co BKLYN (, spends more time with us. During the discussion, he talks more about his design ideas and what jazzes him about his work. We also hear a great story about an incident about which many of us could relate.

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.

I Don’t See That Going Anywhere

Loading a large number of massive tree slabs as part of your job can wear on you. Loading those slabs for the second time after blocking traffic, being pointed at and yelled at by people on the streets, and after your co-worker suggested that you tie things down better, that’s difficult to live down. But Roger Benton is okay with his fellow woodworkers keeping the tale alive. And if you’ve worked large live-edge slabs, you’re going to want to hear how ReCo-BKLYN finishes its creations.

  1. We need some videos from 360 that are worthwhile.
    These chats with guys are nice, but just calling somebody up, recording the call and uploading it isn’t very helpful for woodworkers.
    I don’t care about some guy losing a load off his truck in the middle of Brooklyn.
    Or that he recycles slabs from urban recovery.
    Even the simple videos you used to do with Chuck are better then this.
    It doesn’t have to be Hollywood quality. Just throw the cell phone on a shelf; do something worth watching and upload it.A project video; some tips & tricks. Something.

    1. Eric,
      I hear you. I have been working on the next project, a Pembroke Table. It’s taking longer than I thought. There are about 30 lessons, and more than 150 minutes of video. I’ll send out an announcement soon. Thanks for your thoughts. I promise that more will roll out in the future.

  2. I hope the show hasn’t ended. Are there more episodes planned?

    1. Jim,

      I have decided to end the 360 With 360Woodworking podcast. Producing the podcast took huge blocks of time each week, and the returns – this is a business, by the way – were negligible. Thank you for asking.
