Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: Beautiful Boxes: Design and Technique by Doug Stowe

Doug Stowe can be tryusted to produce outstanding boxes and easy to follow instruction on how to make them. THis should be a great addition to his one man library of useful books.

Re: UPDATE: Finishing Wood from Fine Woodworking

Most definitely! While joinery and assembly are my most favorite aspects of executing a project, the final finishing can be intimidating. That's why I'd like to own a copy of Wood Finishing. I would produce more furniture projects if it weren't for the inevitable moment that arrives near its conclusion where it's- you guessed it! Finish Time and the challenges really begin.

Re: UPDATE: Fine Woodworking's Tables and Chairs

When it comes to woodworking, especially making tables, I'm never board. Love to have THE BOOK!

Re: UPDATE: 3 Book Giveaway! Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to...

This trio of Taunton Publications books is sure to enhance the knowledge of any woodworker worth his sawdust. I'm going to set aside a space on the boofshelf reserved just for them!

Re: UPDATE: Wooden Boxes, by Doug Stowe and Strother Purdy

Have enjoyed many of Doug Stowe's articles and previous books. OK with me if these are ready to stow in my woodworking library.

Re: UPDATE: Why We Make Things and Why It Matters: The Education of a Craftsman by Peter Korn

Seems that humans have always made things-- for the vast portion of human existence, it was because we HAD to in order to survive all the challenges that mother nature posed to our ancestors. Now, we are mostly able to make things that we WANT to for the pleasure or.... true, the need for more decoration of our homes, adornment of the walls or another piece of furniture to store our belongings. The joy of making sawdust while creating an object reflecting one's skill and creativity is surely among the most human of experiences that in part, at least, explains why WE MAKE THINGS! And, if anything that we make is suitable or subsantial enough to last longer than our own lifetime, then IT MATTERS and hopefully anyone in a future generation will understand why we made it. It must transcend our own hand, mind and life.

Re: UPDATE: Best Workshops from the editors of Fine Woodworking

It wood be nice to lay out a more effecient floor plan-- tired of hopping over all the stuff stored in my garage. Maybe the Best Workshops can help!

Re: What hand tools can't you live without?

Nice tool chest! Thansk for sharing your expertise with us Mike. Almost too handsome to use 'cuz it's gonna get some dings and things.

Must have tools-- low angle block plane, Stanley no. 5 jointer plane, half round file/rasp; LS Starrett combination square; lotsa pencils (they are always going astray). Sharpened gent's saw; vise grip (comes in handy more often than I can recall.
After it's all loaded, it's gonna be your daily work-out to carry it but, hey, you can't ever have enaough tools!!

Happy New Year to the staff at Fine Woodworking magazine. May this be the best year ever-- looking forwad to many great and informative articles in the magazine.

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

As a loyal FW fan and reader since 1979, I've seen a remarkable evolution of the teaching materials that FW has produced for the benefit of woodworkers such as myself. Always look forward to the next issue of FW.
The DVD would be a welcome addition to these materials!
