50 Episodes of the MWA Podcast

We are excited to have reached our 50th episode here on the MWA Podcast!  We started the podcast as a review of Tommy Mac's book 2 years ago and just kept going.  We could not have continued without the support of our listeners and thank you all for the wonderful support you have given us.  For our 50th episode the thought it couldn't be more fitting than to go back to the beginning and bring Tommy onto the show.  We hope you enjoy the show and thanks again for listening.

Goings on in the MWA
  • The woodworking shows have finished this year’s rounds and are already planning the next tour.  I hope you got a chance to go if it came nearby.  Word on the street is they’re adding more cities next year.


  • There’s a Lie Nielsen show in Charleston, SC this weekend too!  March 28th & 29th at the American College of the Building Arts in the old city jail.  Sounds like a cool location and  Tom Lie Nielsen himself will be there and may be bringing their new plow plane along.  Also appearing will be Master Carver, Mary May, and Caleb James, plane maker and chairmaker.  Plenty of tool porn there for sure.
