Are the legs splayed and curved?

This is a cute video, and it makes a worthwhile point: fine woodworking is all about the journey, the process. I'll spend two weekends on a jig or two months on a piece of shop furniture. This used to embarrass me, but I no longer make apologies.

Re: A Nutty Alternative to SawStop Technology

That causes chills down my spine.

Re: Walnut and Maple Hall Table

You have an artistic flare and sense of proportion. Amazingly, you also have the skills to execute cleanly on your first "full piece." This is a beautiful table.

Re: Reserve your spot at FWW Live 2013

Great! I can't wait for the 2013 edition of FWW Live!

Re: The first-ever FWW Live, as it happened

I have savored every minute of my three days in New Paltz. The morning plenary presentations, the small group sessions, and the in-between times of chewing the fat with like-minded folk: it was all worth my six months of anticipation. Thank you to Asa and the whole crew at Fine Woodworking!

Re: Win an all-access pass to Fine Woodworking Live!

I receive this news with disappointment. After purchasing a 3 HP cabinet saw and a 3 HP double drum sander two years ago, I have been very happy with General. I am hopeful that their products will be available in the future, even if they're made in Southeast Asia.

The Woodpeckers Rule Stop 1" version. Use this with a steel rule. It's very handy for joinery and other precise layouts.

Re: The Wood Shed

I agree with the above: it is good to see a realistic shop setting. I do love working on my shop and I have to fight the urge to spend even more time on the setting itself.

Re: Beautiful furniture from reclaimed materials

Oak shorts discarded by flooring contractors are a useful source of material. I could afford to use virgin lumber all the time, but I get an added level of satisfaction making something beautiful and useful out of wood that would otherwise have gone to the landfill.
