Re: Book Giveaway: A Lesson Plan for Wood Turning by James Rodgers

Great timing! I just picked up a nearly new Jet lathe. This would be perfect to get me going.

Re: UPDATE: Mortise and Tenon Joinery by Hendrik Varju

This would certainly help me make better joints. Thanks for the opportunity.

Re: UPDATE: Wood Bender's Handbook by Zachary Taylor

This week I had the opportunity to visit the shop of a woodworker in Painesville, Ohio. He had sitting in his showroom several of these oval boxes. They were so beautiful it inspired me to attempt to build some. This book would be very helpful in my first attempt!

Re: Lael Gordon: Prismatic Patterns

Truly amazing work. I wouldn't have thought of using end grain veneer. Thanks for sharing this.

Re: UPDATE: Turning Wood with Richard Raffan, 3rd edition

In my little bit of experience turning, I learned a Shopsmith is NOT a lathe!

Re: UPDATE:French Polishing: Finishing and restoring using traditional techniques by Derek Jones

When I look at this finish, I think, "Wow, I don't have all the necessary power buffers and such to get this result." But really it appears to be relatively simple to produce. When my new shop is done, and when I have the book in hand, I'll have to give it a go! Thanks for the inspiration

Re: UPDATE: Carving in the Round by Andrew Thomas and How to Carve Wood by Richard Butz

Since I'm currently without a shop, carving keeps me busy! I could use these two books for new techniques and ideas! Thanks!

Re: UPDATE: Google SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers - The Basics with Dave Richards

I've used Autocad in my profession (Electrical Engineering) for a long time. There is nothing like Sketchup for working with Wood Project drawings. It's much easier to learn than Autocad and the best's FREE!
