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

There never seem to be enough good books for making small items, especially intricate boxes. I'm looking forward to reading this new instructional guide from Taunton!

Re: Tommy MacDonald and WGBH pursue a new woodworking show

It certainly is important to see the continuation of a woodworking show on television. These type of shows need to be promoted, not because we need to buy more tools, but because of the necessity of not loosing the skills developed throughout the centuries from the master woodworkers. Hands on skills such as woodworking give all of us, whether company executives or bus drivers, a needed relief from the day's long hours. Being involved in watching a 60 minute woodworking show and getting our minds involved in skill developing ideas, can definitely work for us all. Best of luck with getting a sponsor.
