AW Episode #009 – 5 Productivity Tips to Get Your Woodworking Shop Ready for a Busy Holiday Season

Welcome to another episode of the Avid Woodworker!  I am glad you are back, and I am glad to be back behind the microphone and back in my shop.  In case you did not know, I actually record my podcast in my shop.  Using scrap wood and some wheels I salvages from some old chairs, I made a rolling recording studio.  When I am woodworking, I roll it into another room that I can shut the door and keep the dust away from the audio equipment.   It was something I threw together really quickly.  I need to find a day to finish the cart – put some finishing touches on it.  I also need to paint the MDF.

Speaking of MDF, in episode #008, I asked the question is working with MDF really woodworking.  When I was doing some research for that episode, I found out something I did not know, and that was that the MDF slowly released certain chemicals, including Formaldehyde.  But, painting the MDF will seal it so it does not release into the air.  Needless to say, I am looking at all the MDF items in my shop and I am going to start painting all of them, out of an abundance of caution . . . not to mention, I have a couple dozen of half used cans of paint that I would like to use up and get rid of.
