Note: This episode went out live on download services including iTunes on Tuesday, April 25, instead of Friday, April 21, due to a technical error.
In this podcast episode, FHB editor Justin Fink, design editor Brian Pontolilo, and editorial director Rob Yagid discuss cabinet and drawer hardware, window sheathing and flashing, and DIY roof replacement. Also, latex paint is better than oil paint, plus the odd things Justin has in his personal shop. And please, let’s step back from the discussion of the advantages of lead-based paint.
