Re: UPDATE: Furniture Design & Construction by Graham Blackburn

Keep up the great work FWW. Best woodworking resource on the web!

Re: UPDATE: Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Sharpening by Thomas Lie-Nielsen

I wish someone had taught me the importance of learning how to sharpen when I first started trying to work with wood.

Re: UPDATE: In the Greene & Greene Style: Projects and Details for the Woodworker by Darrell Peart

I already have the book, so this is more of an FYI. The book is great, but if you don't have Darrell's first book, I highly recommend getting it. The only overlap between the books are in areas where he presents updated methods for fabricating some of the details. The first book also include more of the G&G and Hall history. The two really are a set. And for a non-professional writer, Peart is fabulously readable.

Re: New Woodworking Machinery Maker Hits the Ground Running

My concern, after a quick look at some of their product pages, is that they seem to lack some basic understanding of woodworker's needs, at least in their marketing department. For instance, how can you not list resaw capacity and a bandsaw product page?

Re: UPDATE: Renaissance Intarsia, edited by Luca Trevisan

Good intarsia has always seemed like magic to me. Would love to win this one.

Re: UPDATE: The Foundations of Better Woodworking by Jeff Miller

I'm pretty selective on the woodworking books I purchase. This one has been on my "to buy" list since I first heard about it.

Any help with sketchup is welcome. Count me in.

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

Still the best woodworking magazine, and community, anywhere. Congratulations on another stellar year. Keep up the good work.

Re: UPDATE: 2011 Fine Woodworking Archive DVD-ROM (1975 - 2011)

Once again, I'm reminded why Fine Woodworking is, far and away, the best woodworking resource and magazine available. Another great job, guys!

Re: Get Ready to Cut Some D'uhvetails

As a beginning woodworker, I experience a lot of what I call "Oblivevents" - the point in any project where a critical error is made in blissful unawareness, to be discovered only later when you think you are nearly done.

Re: Caption Contest Winner!

Effeminate! All right, let's arm wrestle. Come on, I'm ready for you...

Re: We're Giving Away Grooving Planes!

Matthew Kenney demonstrates Zen woodworking: "You don't need to SEE the wood, if you can BE the wood."

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

I just finished reading Ambroses "Americans at War" containing chapters on Grant at Vicksburg and Custer's war years. I wonder how much furniture was moved along with the troop movements.
