The Daily Matt No. 1

July 28, 2009

Just a little sneak peek of a new feature happening here at Matt’s Basement Workshop.

Since so much happens between episodes I was looking for a way to get things out before they pass or I simply forgot.

So starting today is something I’m calling “The Daily Matt”.

    Wow…I…wow. I actually have a tear in my eye. I…thank you, Matt. Thank you.

  2. Waid says:


    Did you get a new camera? The latest video quality looks very good. And the lapel mic is nice too.

  3. Vidar says:

    This is SO true! But hey – if you’re doing something RIGHT, of course unsuccessful lowlifers will try to put you down so that they can feel better about them self…

    Love your podcast, Matt, and Wood Talk Online. You guys crack me up every time! 🙂

    Cheers, Vidar (try to pronounce THAT name in the next show!!! 😛 )

  4. Matt says:

    More likely it will cause mental health visits to spike if anything…

    Matt-love the addition to your site! I can’t believe people send hate mail to woodworkers. Ridonculous. It was so nice to see you come out in support of Rob–it reenforces my experience of woodworkers–as a nice bunch of generous people–yet it also makes it harder to believe that anyone who actually follows these blogs/shows/podcasts would be such a [insert preferred expletive here].
    Anyway, thanks again for all you do, Matt

    • Matt says:

      I couldn’t agree more with you Naomi about the generosity and kindness of woodworkers. If only the rest of the world would take a cue…

      Thanks again and talk to you soon.

    matt every day! i’m all…..choked….up….

    seriously, man, ignore the critics. your show is a great service to woodworkerdom. the critics should be reminded that if they don’t like something on the net, don’t click on it anymore. the best response to those guys is no response: if you’ve got the numbers, there’s nothing more to say.

    • Matt says:

      Hey Jim,

      Thanks for the support, really I don’t get them as much as I once did…but it was important to me to help support Rob and convince him to keep his blog and show up and running, so that’s where my rant came from.

      The daily show is going well so far, of course there’s only a few episodes up and running… so we’ll see how this rocketscience idea works out in a month LOL.

      Take care and thanks!

    Great Job Matt! That’s one of the things that I really appreciate about the woodworking cyber-community. Positive reinforcement. You’ve never said or acted like you know it all, but look back to episode 1 of MBW and think about where you were as a woodworker. The knowledge that you’ve gained by being pushed to learn new stuff and get it out there for us must be very satisfying. You even exude confidence that just wasn’t there when you started and you should feel very good about your effort and the affect you’ve had on all of us. Keep up the good work and keep standing up for the right stuff. Honor and dignity have a place in what you do and it shows. (even the stretchy pants comment)

    Checked out that “tattooed woodworker” site. Is that guy sponsored by Philip Morris? The one video I saw looked like a cigarette commercial. ‘not something I want to bring into my house; I won’t be back.

    • Matt says:

      While Rob maybe not everyone’s cup of tea, he still has some good content to check out. But there’s always other shows out there too if you decide not to revisit.

      Thanks for at least giving him a shot, that’s all any of us ask for LOL!

  9. Michael D. says:

    I hope you and all the other bloggers (i.e. Rob, et. al.) don’t despair and give up the useful and enjoyable service you bring! There’s not not options on broadcast or cable television other than Roy U.’s show.

    Pro or amateur, I like to read and watch woodworker video podcasts and blogs to get various points of view, tips and tricks. A laugh now and then is just an added bonus. Do I enjoy each and every show I watch? Not always. but it’s generally decent enough and I ALWAYS appreciate the effort one puts in to make it to not be rude enough to lament about it.

    You should/could do a podcast about your new setup and detail what hardware you use and what software you use to produce your podcast. Some people might be surprised how much can go into one (especially the editing…. oh, the dreaded editing!).

    • Matt says:

      Thanks for the idea. I’ve thought about it in the past, but I’ve had a few requests, so maybe I should listen to the masses.

      We’ll see what I can hobble together…but all that editing!!!
