Re: UPDATE: DVD Giveaway: Fine Woodworking 2011 Annual Collection

This New Year is said to be the end of world (according to all the hype about the Mayan calender) This year I am instead going to focus on getting out to my shop more and organizing it and removing all the clutter that so discourages me to begin something. So it will be the end of something in my life (procrastination, and fear)....but.... it will also be the beginning of something(to live a fuller more productive life and having fun discovering new courage to "build") Winning the DVD series would certainly contribute to this new found enthusiasm but not winning it will not harm my resolution.
I enjoy your Magazine and have fun out their people! Let this year be the end of the world as you knew it and the re-birthing of something new and fresh in all your lives!

Re: My Basement Toy Box

I like you set up ! How much space? I noticed you have numerous shop vacs around your tools and you also have a portable dust collector ,how is this working for you and how did you decide what potable/shop vac size to use for which machine? Are they all hooked up to an automatic turn on switch when the machine is turned on? Also , I noticed an interesting sort of deflector design behind your miter saw, does that work well for you? And finally your shop being in your basement do you have trouble with the dust migrating to the rest of your house and is there forced air/return through your house furnace? I appreciate your time to answer all my questions, Thanks! If you would like you could e-mail me your response to .
Thank you for posting your well thought out shop.

Re: More Details on the Carlos Osorio Tablesaw Lawsuit

STOP this MADNESS... Bob Budda got it right you people... sure the risk increased when the poor fool removed or worked without the splitter and blade guard... so how many of us commenting on this have been similar "fools" at one time or the other... not to mention the years of experience most of us have and still work in this risky way for convenience or just laziness. THE POINT IS the 'company' DID NOT utilize the technology when it was offered to them, not for our saftey, but for the bottom line. BAD...BAD Big Business !! Their "SINS" have found them out.
Amen !

Re: UPDATED: What Tools Are on Your Holiday Wish List?

Merry Christmas to al my fellow wood-smiths.!
What I would love most for Christmas is someone who is a seasoned and wisen woodworker who would spend a couple of days with me in my shop and help me set it up. My Dad died before this could happen:{

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: The Encyclopedia of Wood

This book looks interesting enough to show my 11 year old son; an up and coming young master-craftsman.
This book won't remain on our bookshelf, but close at hand near our workbench!
Eagerly waiting your reply:)
