Re: Plane Irons and Chisels Need a Flat, Polished Back

Wonderful article, well written,clear,concise. For those who can't find the various grits go to Klingspor Woodworking Shop. Sandpaper is their specialty. If you don't live in NC try this link woodworkingshop.com I was there today and they have a nice sale going on.

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

I've read the medical field is trying carving as a form of therapy to deal with the chronic pain and hopefully reduce medication and combat depression associated with back injuries.

You Tube has some fantastic carvers. I'm partial to Gene Messer (whittler 0507) and Arleen (carverswoodshop) along with several spoon carvers.

I would always appreciate a book or two.

Re: Hate sanding? Try this super-block

Klingspor Woodworking Shop carries both the "Preppin Weapon" and the Sand Devil. I've used both for years and it really helps reduce hand fatigue. Along with good sandpaper which makes the difference from a good aide to a great tool.

Re: iPad and Woodworking?

I have a blackberry and rarely use it for anymore than the phone. For me, it's complicated, slow and hard to read. I would not read magazines on this gizmo. I've owned both windows products and Apple. I personally prefer Apple. I don't get excited with reading material on line, I like the old fashioned paper. However, I love the ability to research on line. I'll wait until I can get more answers - can I run a thumb drive? and see if I can stay on it for 20 minutes or so. I am fascinated with the ability to have the printed word and the video side by side in my shop...

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

With my folks just moving nearby and their old, not yet antique furniture needing a facelift or repair this may just be the book needed! How about a "search inside" feature? I wonder if the book could be used to refinish kitchen cabinets that are 70-80 years old....Thanks!
