In this podcast episode, host and editor Justin Fink is joined by editorial director Rob Yagid and design editor Brian Pontolilo. Brian talks about his recent visit with South-Dakota-based master carpenter Ben Brunick. They discuss Ben's honest, do-it-the-hard-way technique, including how he softens window glazes, but not old paint. Plus, more on Rob's roof renovation. The guys also talk about roofing from the top down; working alone; and a range of building materials.

    I know it’s too late by now but when you guys were talking about exterior house trim for Robs dormers it made me thing of a product we’ve used before for some outdoor projects in place of wood. It’s called King Starboard. It’s a plastic material that comes in a range of thicknesses and colors. Only things that make it difficult to use is we haven’t been able to find an adhesive that works with it. And it’s terribly heavy. But otherwise it works like wood.
