    I’ve missed the Q&A! Thank you! Every now and then I watch the old ones.

    Would be good in the Q & A – or in a later blog post – if you could let us know where you are with books ready for shipping:

    Essentials book
    Other upcoming books

    Question for the Q&A
    I have great success sharpening my cross cut and rip saw but when it comes to my back saws not so much. I can’t seem to get them to cut smooth and not grab and catch, any ideas?

    In your opinion, what is the most important skill(s) an apprentice carpenter should master to increase overall success in craftsmenship. (Ex. Tool maintenance, plane work, cutting, drafting, etc.)

    More of these Q andA would be great

    Dear Paul and Joseph,

    The Q&A today was really good! The content was excellent, as always. Having a dialog in studio made everything more dynamic and enjoyable. It was even more efficient, with Joseph selecting questions from the chat, while Paul was answering.

    Nevermind the little sound problems. It happens even in big radios and televisions (I’ve worked in both). Going live can be full of surprises. You all are a very good team.

    Thank you in particular for anwering my questions! I benefited from them!

    Great job again!
    Looking forward to the next Q&A!

    I am listening to the live broadcast and they have gone through all the preshow (?) questions but I did not hear the questions that I had submitted.

  8. Noel Rodrigue on 12 November 2020 at 8:11 pm

    Can we have a link for a replay, please? I missed the call while on another one.

  9. Donald Lawrence on 12 November 2020 at 8:28 pm

    Any answer to my original question about the combination wet stone that Paul said he used for years would be appreciated.

    The Q&A was very good. I’m sure once the audio issues are worked out it will prove to be a great opportunity to hear from both you and Joseph. I would like to hear more about his musical instrument builds. Thanks again.
