ShopNotes Podcast 112 — An Official Apology to John's Mom

By: Phil Huber
Thoughts on rescuing, reusing, and repairing furniture. And an update on John's 30-day challenge.

With Logan recovering his trip to Las Vegas ... John and Phil shoulder the podcast for one more week.

John gives an update on his 30-day cleaning challenge — who's ready to join him? Will it go to another month? Where does it end?
