Even at this advanced age, there's a new love interest in my life! A small handmade wooden box will be a perfect first birthday present for her. I need this book!

Re: The Ghostly Woodworker

I'm sure the Claymation folks will be especially impressed with this fine effort. The educational value is exceeded only by the entertainment factor. Truly enjoyable. If I were to nitpick, (and I'm not, you understand!), but if I were, wouldn't the chair arms be a bit more comfortable rounded over where the hands rest? (Also, I'll trade shops & power tools with you in a New York Minute!)

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

Just spent Christmas Eve afternoon frantically finishing up a set of kids' craft tables & chairs for a neighbor's twin granddaughters. I realized about halfway through that project that I was in serious need of a refresher course in the basics in order to introduce the concept of efficiency into the process. I have all Krenov's books & a priceless autographed copy of 'Sam Maloof - Woodworker', so the inspirational stuff is in place. This looks to be a perfect balance on my bookshelf, (but undoubtedly would spend more time in the actual shop.)
