Re: Cure for the Common Cabinet: Official Rules

I am again disappointed by the exclusion of al furniture makers outside the USA.
This means to me that you do not value our work.
I know it is difficult to organize but your sponsors gain the change of branding there product all over the word.
Please think about it, even once every two years give us ( outsiders) a change to show how good we are.

Re: Top 7 Woodworking Pet Peeves

Had a very good friend over who wanted to use my best chisel do undo a screw ( i asked him what it was that he had in his hand and then what do you use for screws, his answer i use it quickly) from then on nobody uses my tools, i am using them to make a living.
And the next why are chisels always really really sharp when you drop them on your foot, is that to show your wife that you have red blood?

Re: What's your favorite hand or power tool?

My favourite tool is my 1" Japanese chisel, i have lost of fun sharpening it accessionaly it just stays so long sharp.
I bought it when i was i Japan, only one so that i could see if it is better, with some saws and a hammer.
i had only 1/4 of a hour to go and get them.
Next time i buy lots more.

Re: Is it OK to sell furniture based on FWW articles?

Copying for personal use is no problem but for profit no way!
And to call somebody who copies a idiot is not right.
I do not have to copy but there are enough other persons who are starting out an learn from making these pieces of furniture.
