Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: The Frugal Woodturner by Ernie Conover

Great timing, I am just now starting to expand my woodturning skills, projects etc.

Will continue with pen turning and other small turnings, but feel the call of bowls, boxes and maybe even platters.

This book would be a great help to me and a nice addition to my woodworking library.

Thank you

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Esherick, Maloof, Nakashima: Homes of the Master Wood Artisans by Tina Skinner

Beautiful looking cabinets. I love the pull out slides. I keep saying I need to add those pull outs to my breakfast bar.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Traditional Finishing Techniques from the New Best of Fine Woodworking

I would love to win this book. I really struggle with finishing, so I buy/search/read as much info as I can on the subject. Somehow I always end up with a very basic poly finish for fear of ruining my project.
By the way I believe the cover of this book is definitely an attention grabber.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: How to Choose and Use Bench Planes and Scrapers by John English

I could really use a book like this. I am slowly starting to read and learn about the different handplanes that I need opposed to all the different ones that are out there.

Thank You

Thanks for the opportunity.

This should be some good reading. Thanks for the chance.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Wood Finishing Fixes by Michael Dresdner

Just what I need. I find finishing very confusing and so my plan is to keep reading about the subject. Michael Dresdner is one of the authors on my buy list.
Thanks for the chance.

Re: UPDATE: DVD Giveaway: Wood Science & Design by Hendrik Varju

I would love to win this DVD set. I believe it has the type of info, including structure and movement, that I seem to have a problem grasping and need another explanation.
Thank you

I am into woodworking and my husband is into history, so this book would be great for us to share. Thanks for the chance.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Windsor Chairmaking by James Mursell

Making a Windsor chair is definitely on my to do list. Of course that list is getting really big and I will also have to add a book or 2 to my to the list. Everything I know about woodworking (admittedly, not much) has been learned from sites like Fine Woodworking and their magazines. I also purchase books on the topic/projects I would like to learn/make.
Winning this book would defray some of those costs.
Thank You

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Made By Hand by Tom Fidgen

I have been reading more and more about working with hand tools. This book looks like it would be a good read for someone interested in going the unplugged route someday.
I have slowly been adding hand tools to my collection, most of my small collection came from my father-in-law (who was actually a tool and die maker, but he loved to work with his hands on any project).

Re: Poll: Any Machinery on your Holiday Wish List?

I did not ask for/vote for any machinery this year. The economy is too tough for something that big right now, but I would love to be able to upgrade my bandsaw in the near future. Though I will probably go for a dovetail jig(after loads of research it would definitely be the Leigh)first since I already have a (crapola)BS.

Re: Poll: What hand tools are on your holiday wish list?

I am saving my money for a LN low angle block plane.

Re: Cello Box Wins Tablesaw Prize

OMG... I don't know what is more impressive the craftsmanship or the imagination. Great work. Thanks for sharing.
