Dave Talks #2: What, no woodworking? A tour of a disasterously messy shop.

07-11-2016 03:51 AM by dbhost | 8 comments »

In today’s video I answer the viewer question from my last video. What, no woodworking? My regular readers / viewers know why, but I illustrate in it’s full ugliness a very dirty shop that is simply too hot, and too dangerous to work in. Native Texans laugh at me for not handling the heat, to which I say Guilty! What can I say?

Yes it’s cheap, and most of the time it will warp as soon as it is removed from the stack, but it can also be dangerous. Acording to an employee at Owl Hardwood in Lombard, IL, there is an instance where metal was found between the plys. The consumer that bought it found what appeared to be a utility knife blade while he was ripping the sheet on a table saw and in doing so, destroyed his blade. No coments if the person was injured, but I would not want to be around when pieces of ca...
