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

And just who wouldn't like to have a book by Jeff Miller to add to their woodworking collection? And one that covers the basis of woodworking, creating and even better foundation. Yes, I would love to have this.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: The Chairmaker's Workshop by Drew Langsner

I would love to make a chair, but when I look at all of the angles, and think of all the various things that are involved in a chair I always shy away from trying it. Maybe, maybe some day...

Re: iPad and Woodworking?

I have a Kindle, and have some woodworking books, already loaded onto it. I have found that I do not access these books, on the Kindle, but rarely although, now that I am able to access my Kindle books on my PC, I am reading the woodworking books, a lot more, via the pc, when in my shop. I would expect to find the same type of rare usage of woodworking material on any other kind of electronic devise, other the a pc, as the shop environment just does not, really, lend itself to electronic media, due to the sawdust and other environmental conditions. At least, this is my opijnion.

Re: UPDATED: Giveaway and Poll: The Most Requested Woodworking Gifts of 2009

Ah, if I were to sit on Santa's knee, I would probably ask for a Grizzly G1014Z Combination Sander. I'm not sure where I would put it, in my garage work-shop, but oh, how nice!

Re: How to build a table, in 60 seconds

I was intrigued from the moment that I saw the article in the E-magazine, and it is the first "article" that I went to. Maybe I am kind of weird, but before I clicked on the video, knowing that making a table in a minute is, or should be impossible, I read the short article below the video. Besides, I almost always read the article, prior to watching the video's, as they often point out something important that I may not see, on my own. In the article, is states, and I quote; "In a little under a minute, we get milling, resawing, layout, mortising, shaping, decoration, finishing and a look at the completed piece." Reading this, I immediately understood what I was going to see, and it made it just, that much more special. This was/is a great video, in my opinion, and the title just made it a little bit more exciting. THANKS FWW, if you can find more of these, I would love to see them. Wonderful short pieces that show the skill and beauty of woodworking. . . a real inspiration! To those that were disappointed, I might suggest that you, at least, skim the review of the video you are about to see. I can save you disappointment, and you may just pick up a little something extra in watching it.

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

The book sounds wonderful. Being retired, and starting "back" into woodworking as a retirement hobby, I am already on a limited budget. One of the things that I have as a project is the restoration of several pieces of furniture that I have acquired over the years, some from family, and others from travel. This sounds just like the information that I need, but will be hard pressed to acquire. But, I do hope to get more information on what in in the book, as FW has done a wonderful job of reviewing books, in the past, and I will be very interested in a "in depth" review of this particular volume, prior to adding it to my "must have" list.
