Shop Talk Live 9: Four Finger Swipe


This week, we tackle a frequently-asked question as our editors reveal their pre-Fine Woodworking pasts. Then, Asa delves into the strange non-woodworking mechanics of super-secret iPhone techniques like the "four finger swipe," as learned from his daughter. Later on, the guys get around to tackling some more serious woodworking questions.

Apply the KISS princple to titles. Woodworkers are generally down to earth people and thrive on straight talk not this cryptic rubbish.

Bring back the videos. At least we can go off and try out the techniques for ourselves, then go back to watch again if we need to.

wvwoodshed wvwoodshed writes: This is just a brief comment on the perspectives regarding the cover photo on issue 227. I do not think it should be looked at as the magazine's responsibility to insure photos in the magazine depict appropriate safety practices. The reality is this speaks to the real world attitudes towards safety as a whole. If safety were truly a focus, it would have been an automatic, not something requiring instruction from the photographer. I am also concerned by the hosts position of making excuses regarding unusual circumstances due to the story aspect of the situation. If anything you would think safety would be even closer to the forefront of everyone's mind. Lead by example and never faulter from the intent of your mission. Keep your mind on your fingers and your fingers on your hands!!!!!!!!!

I did like the video as I am in Australia and can not go to any of your forums. It gave me faces to the names
