Re: UPDATE: Mortise and Tenon Joinery by Hendrik Varju

I have Varju's video course on surface preparation. It is extremely thorough and I am sure he has given equally detailed coverage to the subject of M & T joinery. Well, 10 plus hours of edited video is a lot more than any other video available. So, really looking forward to seeing this course.

Re: Announcing Fine Woodworking's Google SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers--The Basics

For a year I have wanted to start using SketchUp but couldn't run the free version on my 3 year old Mac. But now I have a Mac running Lion and have downloaded the latest version and am ready to start designing! Now I notice there are quite a few sketch up drawings for download and it would be great to be able to take measurements off of the drawings to start building from them. There are even drawings of classic furniture. I recently downloaded a drawing of a Ben Franklin Library Chair -- the one that folds out into a step stool. So if I knew just a little more about using Sketchup I could start building one!
