Re: UPDATE: Rough Cut - Woodworking with Tommy Mac by Tommy MacDonald and Laurie Donnelly

When they announced 'New Yankee Workshop' was going off the air, I thought that was the end of good woodworking shows. Tommy's style isn't Norm's, but his dedication and love of woodworking makes his show great. This book would make things easy-peasy!

Re: The Mysterious Case of the Exploding Shellac Can

I had a light bulb go off when I read your article. I had a can of shellac that I used earlier this year and forgot behind the door in my office. I came home a couple weeks ago to a very strong alcohol smell in my house. The shellac can had a 1/4" puddle of shellac pooled under it. I couldn't imagine what had caused the leak. So glad to read abut why it happened and will go the flake route from now on.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Step-By-Step Guitar Making by Alex Willis

Fine Woodworking always comes through with top quality articles and information! I am very interested in guitar construction and would be very happy to give this book a new home (or shop, as it were).

Re: "a bowsaw from pallet wood"

Thanks for sharing this - I've been thinking about making a bow saw for a while and also think that pallets are a great source for hardwood. Reusing things that will end up in a landfill or rotting at the side of the road is great.
