The Woodworking Podcast –
The Woodworking Podcast is a casual conversation about woodworking with host Nick Ferry & Bob Kloes. Discussion is pretty much anything & everything woodworking related. From woodworking tools & equipment, tips & techniques, joinery & methodology and shop layout. Pretty much anything is fair game. The Woodworking Podcast started shortly after a 3 hour long video chat between Nick and fellow woodworkers, Jay Bates & Matt Cremona. Nick figured if we are spending this much time talking about woodworking, why not make the conversations available for others to listen in on and get the community involved. So The Woodworking Podcast was born. At that time, Matt was about to start co-hosting WoodTalk & all involved thought it best not to have Matt have to split his time between the two podcasts. At that time, April Wilkerson was invited to be on the show and her and Jay stayed on for 36 episodes spanning roughly 16 months. Jay & April left the show & Nick took a short break from making episodes until Bob was brought on as a co-host in late 2017. The community support and encouraging feedback is what keeps making the conversation going. Speaking of feedback, if you have any topic suggestions, would like to recommend a guest host, or have questions you would like answered on the show, please fill out our Contact Us form & maybe your idea could be on the next show.

I have been into tools and tinkering as far back as I can remember. I started woodworking when I was 12 and started a woodworking/craft business less than a year later with a friend. It wasn’t anything special and didn’t last too long. We mostly made small items like oak shelves and candle holders. I was the type of child to get a r/c car or toy and want to take it apart right away to see how it worked.
I was lucky enough that when I moved from middle school to high school my shop teacher transferred schools too. So I ended up having the same shop teacher for 7 years. This was nice as we had already built a good rapport. If not for him I most likely wouldn’t be as into building things as I am today. When I was in 7th grade my mother actually called my shop teacher to have him tell me not to pursue woodworking because it was too dangerous. Luckily he didn’t listen to her. Now with kids of my own I can see where she was coming from, but with the right appreciation for tools and what they can do, I don’t see them as any more risky than most other things in life. The use of uncommon common sense is key.
I love to learn new techniques and methods in any form of creating things. I believe that people who tinker, have brains that are like sponges and are always wanting to learn more about the things around them. Can I design that, can I build it? Well, there is only one way to find out! Find me at nickferry.com
