Andy Birkey is our guest this week! 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 to get 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 let's 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.

Federico makes creating your next password the most fun and contemplative part of your day (mad props to xkcd). He also shares a way to convert your 3D printer into a laser printer. um... WUT! Rob heats up some perler beads and ices up his grille cryptography. Also shrink wrap is a wonder.
