Re: SketchUp 2015 Released Today

Give it a try people Dave knows what he's talking about.
I have a long way to go but what I have learned is awesome.
Also check out the DVD Dave has out to help introduce you to getting started. "SketchUp Guide for WoodWorkers" by Dave Richards its a very good guide.

Happy WoodWorking

Re: UPDATE: The Creative Woodturner by Terry Martin

I would greatly enjoy some additional reading and education on turning. Looks like a good book!

Re: UPDATE: Fine Woodworking's Tables and Chairs

this sure looks like a good book and guessing that every woodworker could use.

If I'm not blessed with winning it I wish the best to whom ever receives it.

Happy WoodWorking.


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

I personally own at least 7 of this Tauton series and these books are great.

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

This truly does sound like an interesting book and I think would help anyone who is fortunate enough to win it to better understand that we as wood workers were all created to create.
We get the gratification from those we either sell or just give our pieces too.

I am fortunate to live and breath wood working as an everyday venture and truly enjoy it.
So if opportunity is given teach another young person to love and understand why we create.
Happy Wood Working

Re: Freeze your beetles

My question to you is how about the eggs that have been layed in the wood. I am not sure the freeze method will distroy the eggs. I am open to others comments and tests in this area too.
I recently did a restoration job of a dining Room table that had a pretty sever case of powder post beetles as well.
I had it loaded in a kiln for 3 weeks at over 150 degrees.
This insures that even the eggs are killed.
I believe the kiln method is truely the only way to eliminate the complete problem.

I also totally fumigated my shop when we realized this wood was filled with active powder post beetles. I then kept the shop shut tight for over over night before opening back up in the morning for business.
Hope this helps
