Hey guys! Long time listener, first time emailer. Err, something like that. Anyway, I'm still on my third run through the previous episodes, and am up to episode 95, with guests Lizzy and Ashley from Sawdust Junkies. I really enjoy going back and hearing tips and info again that I've forgotten or missed before. That, and hearing all of Jeremy's hopeful and missed target dates of finishing his wife's table. Don't worry Jeremy, right there with you, I started a bed in September 2016, have since scraped what I started, and back to designing. So, hearing this episode gave me two thoughts. First, at the time, Drew mentioned YouTube had taken a backseat to commissioned pieces. Understandable. Have any of you ever considered offering a small discount on a piece, with the trade off to the client being that the build could be recorded for your respective channel, as well as obviously being a longer build time? Not something you could offer to every client or every piece, but maybe on something you haven't recorded, or for something that brings you a new or difficult challenge. Second, possibly a show topic, do you think we (woodworkers) should study the different types and styles of building before designing and building? Are there any worth a thorough study? Or do you think it's enough to work on improving joinery and just build what we think looks good? Thanks for keeping the podcast going, I know all of you could easily be putting the time into other things. Robert
