Listener questions


  1. Chad Martin website -”Love the podcast Gentlemen! It's the perfect length and great how you stay focused on the content, so thank you for the breath of fresh air in woodworking podcasts! I am curious about your opinions on roughing gouges. I'm still pretty new to turning and there are so many different tools out there it's hard to keep them all straight and when it's best to use them. So since the roughing gouge is the first thing every project needs (in most cases) what is your preference in size to start with? Is there a scenario where a different size is better than another? Are there roughing gouges for certain woods or type of project (spindle vs bowl vs segmented pieces)? Thanks again, keep up the great work and I'm looking forward to every new episode. Chad”


  2. Pat Lap - Hi guys! Here is some questions for you guys: - Were you woodturners before YouTube? - How the social medias changed your life as woodturners? - Do you think YouTube will last? If not, what are you going to do to show your skills? Have a great day! Love the podcast!

  3. Lou Call website - “Hey I really like this podcast, it's nice to listen to you guys. I love the youtube videos you guys put out. Maybe a topic you could discuss is what is the process of video, editing and publishing your videos. I've tried and fail to make something worth watching. I look forward each week to listen to WTAPODCAST. “

    RE: Episode 22 You all had great info. Jason touched on something that I find…. annoying? He’s right, the smaller guys on YouTube and Instagram get kinda pushed away by the algorithms (?) , And he’s right, we are missing out on some great content! I find on Instagram that my favorites are folks that don’t upload too many posts, but by not posting as much they are barely in my Instagram feed. Also, it’s great to be active on social media, but many post about the same project waaay too much (“another screw going in!”) So it’s all about quality, not quantity for me. Same goes for YouTube videos I like to watch, short and direct, under 10 minutes is best for me, but if I really need to learn something, longer is fine. I have found some great content creators by checking out who is leaving comments. I found Cammie’s Garage this way and I like his style, methods, and editing. You guys are great at all this too and great company through these podcasts, thank you. Leo

      100% agree with you, Leo! It’s hard to get ahead on social media when your content gets buried, or not shown to 80% of you’re followers. It’s got to the point where I’m tired of posting hahaha. – Braxton
