Oct. 2020: Consuming and Producing

October 2020

A list of books, audiobooks, podcasts, and some television.
This also maps my consumer habits, and how my time on Youtube and Instagram leads to shop projects and purchases.

What I am Reading this Month:

What I am listening to this month:

(September included)


What I am watching this month:

What I am consuming

Video game:

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (Xbox)… currently a level 55 Warrior build, about 100 hours in.


Rob Cosman
New handcut dovetail method
you need a shooting board

Matt Estlea:
Tool Duel for shoulder planes, and router planes.
How to build a ramped shooting board.

Cold Brew… my mom and sisters got me a uKeg for my birthday. I love their awful slogan:

A uKeg for every hour. Drink all day, with class.

Beer: Tupps Triple Dry-Hopped IPA #tdhipa (new release… more is not always better.)

What I want:

After youtube vids, I want a Veritas router plane, a Veritas shoulder plane, a Rob Cosman dovetail saw and marking knife.

Heating/AC for the shop.
Drill press that can handle decently thick lumber.
Festool Kapex Miter Saw (… this is just silly… )

What I built:

3 podcasts this month, which is a bit much.

2 Shooting Planes.
I didn’t build a ramped plane. One is 24″ long, one is 18″ long. (I’ll get some completed pics up soon.)

A prototype record box for an upcoming project.
I used the crappiest plywood from Lowe’s to make this prototype. My thought was if I can cut box joints on crappy plywood, then anything else would be a delight to work with.

Tool holding/display area.
A dedicated area for my planes, spoke shaves, chisels, and some mark-making and layout implements. Made of maple ply and maple trim. (This is incomplete, still going to make some additions to it.)
