Episode 34 / Opposable Thumbs (Yep! That’s the Challenge!)

June 19th, 2018 | 1 hr 10 mins

Our guest in this episode was… Andy Birkey! Central Illinois in tha house! We learn a lot from Andy about gothic woodworking, church furniture design, and working with clients. We also hear from Andy about Buddhism and working on getting rid of anger.

Thanks to Nik Kantar for giving us our listener-contributed challenge! Rob goes for a semi-murdered-out… something… and then gets in a pickle. Andy shines some light on Opposable Thumbs. We’re dying to know the tales Andy’s compound miter saw could tell… Taylor lets the Eaaaagle’s sooooooar…. Like they’ve never soared… before…. from rocky coast…

We also couldn’t help but ask Andy about his experiences with the Shaper Origin handheld CNC router.
