I have the perfect spot for this book.

Re: SawStop inventor Steve Gass defends the latest tablesaw verdicts

Does this mean I will never dare to sell my 15 yr. old Delta Cabinet Saw for fear that I could be included in a lawsuit involving my old saw, or now that a precedant is set will it be buyer beware?

I'm gonna end up with book either way...

Re: UPDATE: A Lesson Plan for Wood Turning by James Rodgers

Always room for another book on the shelf. The only thing I have more off than woodworking tools is books about woodworking (not certain thats a good thing).

Re: A Hobbyist Northwoods Shop and Hideout.

Feel very fortunate to have a space like this, and yes sometimes the tool collecting gets in the way of the woodworking. Thanks for looking.

Re: A Shop to Inspire

Into the autumn of my life, I am so envious of these young people that have this opportunity to creat there future, whether it be a hobby or career in woodworking or any craft. Stay with it!!

I'm so jealous, why is it so much fun to tour a fellow craftsmans workshop? Of course Mr. Lowe would be ten times the craftsman I am so using the word "fellow" is hardly fair. l enjoyed this article, looking forward to the video and workbench project.

I've used this technique several times when only building a door or two,you must maintain your patience and never hurry the process. If I were building 20 doors for for say a set of kitchen cabinets I would still set up my dado set, the time wasted changing blades kind of gets evened out by the length of the project. Safe for Fine Woodworking? Considering the recent rediculous settlement in the SawStop case, you have to wonder.

Re: Fine Woodworking On the Road: Come out and see us

Wow, I didn't realize I live in such a vacuum here in northern Wisconsin or are we just a little disconnected from the more populated areas in the USA (thats actually the way I like it.) Actually we have some great resources in the upper midwest, check out the North House Folk School website@ www.northhouse.org . The school is located on the North Shore of Lake Superior in Grand Marias, MN. It's a beautiful area to mix a vacation and a class, they have such diverse set of offerings that both you and your spouse could take a course in the same or different venue.
