  1. I have never taken psychedelic drugs before but I feel like that Woodshimmer video could be close to the feeling. I was not ready for that at 8am.

  2. Look up “The Furniture Guys” or “Furniture to Go” on YouTube – they always had an upholstery segment on the show. Real traditional, using horse haaar and tacks. This is also where I learned about a “spit coat” of shellac for finishing.

  3. Guests at the Embassy Suites during WIA in 2013 got a first-hand demonstration of oily rags spontaneously combusting. Most of us (except Marc) were dragged out of bed by fire alarms at 2am. Turns out the culprit was a pile of oily rags in the kitchen. Luckily, they were only smoldering and hadn’t flared up, so we were all able to make it to Roy’s morning presentation.

  4. Hey Guys, I just wanted to comment on Michael’s rust question. I live in Florida, about 2 miles from the water. The humidity here is always sky high. That being said, I have a wall hanging tool cabinet, and I have no issues with rust on any of my tools. Every once in a while I rub wax on my tools, maybe once a year. Also, I did Paul seller’s can with a rag saturated with 3 in 1 oil. I just rub that over my main tools every couple weeks. Thanks!
