Re: UPDATE: Renaissance Intarsia, edited by Luca Trevisan

Awesome mass of information for the budding intarsia hobbyist, Me !!!!

Re: UPDATE: Carving in the Round by Andrew Thomas and How to Carve Wood by Richard Butz

Oh My Gosh !!! This book is a must have for me ! If by some fluke I won it that would be awesome, but if not I'll have to purchase it anyways. Just started carving caricatures several years ago and am told I am very good. Surprised me the most as had not attempted it in the past. Any books on carving are a welcome addition to my library.

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

That would be great to have the whole year easily available to peruse at the clicks of the mouse !

Re: Dual Featherboards

The fence I use along with this feather board is not mounted on my band saw in this picture. The temporary, clamp-on fence I use is just ell shaped, about 6 inches tall, and supports the work very well against the dual feather board.
I would like to note also that the 5 pieces of 3/4 inch plywood in between are removable individually to raise or lower the top feather board as I like.

Re: UPDATE: Building Small Cabinets by Doug Stowe

This is the best way to use the odd lengths, and larger scraps that I can never seem to part with !
If I don't win it I will surely have to buy this book anyways !

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Hand Planes in the Modern Shop by Kerry Pierce

Having a background of 35 years working with steel, and only immersing myself in woodworking about 6 years ago, I have a lifetime of learning to accomplish without a lifetime left in which to do so. I have found that woodworking should have been my first love, as nothing fascinates me as much as all things wood, therefore, every bit of information and knowledge is a huge help in my learning curve. I've accumulated a small collection of hand tools so far and need all the help I can to learn how to use them to their fullest potential.


Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Beginning Picture Marquetry by Lawrence Threadgold

Yes, Yes, seems an interesting book. Although I do some minor inlay, I have intentions of taking it further. The basics are naturally a great place to start and this book would be great reading I have no doubt of that.

Re: Rough Cut PBS Station Locator

Not playing in Erie, PA. We have The Woodsmith Shop, thanks to me suggesting it last year, and reruns of the New Yankee Workshop, but no Tommy who ?

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Civil War Woodworking by A.J. Hamler

Awesome !
I've never heard much discussion related to this particular subject so it is of great interest to me.
I used to live in Cold Harbor Virginia, just outside of Richmond Virginia, and the area is all battlefields. I had to walk through the old trench's and fox holes while hunting behind my house there. If I don't win this book, I will still be looking to purchase it for my collection.

Re: UPDATED: Giveaway and Poll: The Most Requested Woodworking Gifts of 2009

60 1/2 "Low Angle" block plane is on the top of my list as I inherited an ole Stanley 60 1/2 that is damaged. I have been watching eBay for parts for it with little luck so far.
General, makes a nifty "dovetail jig" that would come in handy occasionally, and for around $55 is very affordable.
Nothing can match hand-cut, but like I say, occasional use wise, it would be a nice gift.
Other than that, anything woodworking related is always welcome, and never look a gift horse in the mouth !

Re: Variation of a Ray Allen classic

This is a very beautiful piece, and has earned my vote in the Turners Challenge. This was a tough vote because ALL the entries are so beautiful, and all deserve to win. Great Piece !!!

Re: Take a peek inside my shop

Hello Greg,
Looking at your pics, and reading about using the OSB on the walls reminded me of my Fathers new 2-1/2 car garage.
He did the same thing, and it was much cheaper than drywall, and like you said holds up to the occasional abuse.
One problem he ran into was painting it !
Let us know how you make out with that ??? Three(3) coats of primer were sucked up like nothing on his OSB test section, and he decided to leave it all natural due to the probable cost in finally making it white. So I will be interested in seeing what you finally decide to do with yours.

Re: Book Giveaway: Furniture Restoration - Step-by-Step Tips and Techniques for Professional Results

We recently were given a very, very old dresser, that needs restoring. This book would be a real boon to our efforts, as there is some damaged veneering that we are not sure how to repair. Thanks for the chance to win this book !!!
