Mechanicsburg, IL, US

Spent my life working in the IT industry. Built and refurbed several homes as a hobby and sweat equity. I enjoy woodworking as a hobby and escape from the crazy computer world that I have worked in all my life. I have a lot to re-learn in woodworking since I have been away from it for a while, but I enjoy the satisfaction from doing it myself. I enjoy the forums and hearing how the experts do things.

Re: UPDATE: The Foundations of Better Woodworking by Jeff Miller

It would be a great book, i might actually learn how to do what I am doing.

Re: Time to end the hand vs. power battle

As an aging baby boomer I find hand tools harder and harder to use. Some of us suffer from arthritis, in fact over 40 Million Americans do. I enjoy hearing both points of view, but in a magazine I look for them to explain how one can accomplish the task by hand, or with a machine. The important part is to show us how each task can be done and the advantages or disadvantages of each. While I might like to finish something with a hand plane, I don't enjoy the pain in my knees and back for the next two days. Each of us have different needs, I enjoy the magazine and thoughts shared.
