Just like all of you I’m always on the lookout for a good show that will help to inspire or teach me something I can use in the shop. There are quite a few woodworking podcasts available on iTunes and I’m probably subscribed to all of them! The problem is finding time to sit down and watch them all.
The other day I was perusing the list of shows and noticed one I hadn’t seen before. I’m sure it was there all along, I just hadn’t searched for anything new to me in a long time. I’m so glad I decided to take a look!
Over the years I’ve had a few questions come in from listeners about various marine topics. Nothing as major as “how to make a boat” but a number of questions regarding marine grade lumber or finishes. I’ve always had to claim ignorance, but tried to help point them in the right direction so they could find someone who might have a better idea.
Well now I know exactly who to point these people too, Andy Miller of the Boatworks Today podcast. Andy is just the kind of guy you want on your side when it comes to building or restoring all things nautical and even all around woodworking for that matter.
Andy’s introductory video is posted below (I embedded it with his permission from his website). The videos are full of great information and so far have covered more than just boat restoration. In fact, one of my favorite build series so far has been the Xylophone he built for his daughter for Christmas. Although, the Pizza Paddle has definitely made an impression on me…probably more to do with the ending of the video and the calzone it carried to and from the oven…
Don’t just take my word for it, checkout Andy’s introductory video below and then do yourself a favor and head over to iTunes and subscribe today to download the rest of his videos. By subscribing you’re guaranteed not to miss another episode. Of course you could just head over to his website at www.boatworkstoday.com and learn more about Andy and the show.
