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.
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.
I think I need this book. I'll know for sure if I win it :)
Sound advise Mr Turner.
Chairs? An expert writing on chairs - ‘Woh-who-ey! who-ey! who-ey! Woh-who-ey! who-ey!’ I have an addiction to chairs. I could feed four addictions with this book...Sign me up!
I really need this book - hope it has ideas on a lumber drying shed :)
come on mama, baby needs a new table :)
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...
I must be missing something...The numerous comments on the book and what I see is a must have DVD. Any day of learning is a great day!
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!
