Re: Book Giveaway: Furniture Restoration - Step-by-Step Tips and Techniques for Professional Results

We have inherited, as well as purchased, several pieces of family heirloom furniture. We would like to totally restore one or two of these pieces, but have no clue how to go about the process. This book sounds like the perfect solution!

Great magazine; CD would be a lot more flexible.

Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

Although I am normally against this sort of lawsuit, I am happy to hear that this one was successful. What many readers do not understand is that the inventor of the new safety technology in the SawStop table saw tried for several years to get the cooperation of the leading manufacturers to incorporate the technology. They have been refused, not because they didn't want to buy it, but basically because they could not buy the technology on an EXCLUSIVE basis.

So the truth is that unless one manufacturer could buy the technology and exclude all others from acquiring it, they refused to implement the new safety approach. The implication of the major brands' response seemed to be, "If we can't monopolize the profit potential, and exclude all others, then we can't be bothered with saving consumers from thousands of serious injuries every year."

I am hoping that this lawsuit may break through the greedy nature of the leading companies so that new, finger-saving technology can be implemented where it makes sense.

I DON'T want to see a requirement for this technology on all saws. I DO want each manufacturer to make this option available on their saws.

We inherited an old cabinet/desk with a curved glass front. This book looks like an excellent guide to dealing with the darkened, thick finish. We've been avoiding the restoration task for lack of knowledge on how to proceed.
