Re: UPDATE: Weekend Woodturning Projects: 25 Simple projects for the home by Mark Baker

Looks like a great group of fun projects. My wife would probably like me to get started on 1/2 of them right now!

Re: UPDATE: 3 Book Giveaway! Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to...

I have the Turning book by Richard Raffan and it is really a superb tutorial for various techniques.

I'd be proud to add another copy to my collection (or give it to an aspiring woodturner). The other two books would be excellent resources as well.

Please pick me!

Thank you.

Re: UPDATE: Mortise and Tenon Joinery by Hendrik Varju

Looks like a great DVD. I'd be proud to have it in my meager collection. Now, if you could add all of Ron's greatest moments from Parks and Recreation I'd truly be in Woodworking Heaven.

Re: Der Zinkenknecht, a Dovetail Jigäne-plans/der-zinkenknecht/

This link will give you a short video (with English subtitles) and a place to purchase plans for 18 Euros. (Not sure what that comes to in dollars.)

Anyone figure out what "Zinkenknecht" means? One on-line translator says, "Zinc Servant" which I sort of like.

Re: UPDATE: Renaissance Intarsia, edited by Luca Trevisan

I wonder how intarsia techniques may have been informed by working with stained glass (and vice versa). Does anyone have any comments on that?

Re: Hall Table Project: A Lesson in Curves

Thanks for the plans, Don. I made my version of this table and replaced a hulking gate-leg table that my wife detested. This light, airy version of a table is a good fit for my dining room. I'm contemplating a coffee table-sized version of this and experimenting with adding a lower shelf to hold magazines. My mortise-and-tenon work could use some help so that's my challenge for the next version.
