I do all the "right" things but still don't have a shave ready blade.
My daughter in-law was supposed to inherit a blanket chest. Sadly it didn't happen. So I started thinking about building one for her in the style of the missed desire. More ideas are almost always better just short of the point of confusion. Blanket chests must be the new let's build it thing. I sure have seen quite a few different options in the magazines as of late.
Was learning to drive my #6 (Woodriver) yesterday. It certainly was nice to be able to think and hear while dabbling in the hobby.
I think the idea of these techniques developing from primitive to advanced is overstated. Indeed there is development but a lot of what we see is the "style" of the era. The Roman Statuary show wonderful perspective whereas the period illustrations are flat; one might say stylized. Perhaps this is the desired style of the community. Fashion in art causes us to go OOOH over ridiculous things (e.g - paint splashed on a canvas that people "admire" for its aesthetic -gag). Unless people are fundamentally different now (please be real) the art community strives to create novelty and the consumer pays for what they want. In the renaissance era this comes out as intarsia.
This was my Christmas present to my eldest, and my namesake, who has the woodworking bug too. He said it looked to be a great resource. Sigh. It's on my short list of ww books...
You been spammed (see the first comment). Nice cabinet, feel like I'm in Hobbitown.
My guilty pleasure. Watching others do the work.
GOOD job Bob Taylor. As for all those nitpicking about replanting, no one is stopping you from starting an organization/charity to replant the ebony forests. Being a critic is easy. Walking the walk is admirable. Kudos to Taylor for effecting and affecting what they can.
The challenge is the my eyes are bigger than my wallet. Sigh, what can I afford.
