Woodworkers! There is So Much to Share!
Issue: Issue 278
Posted Date: 6/28/2011
Have you ever had one of those moments
when you paused in reflection, and then were a bit amazed at what you
had accomplished? Recently I had just such an experience.
As a result, there are three things
that I would like to point out to you - because all of them could
easily enhance your woodworking experience.
First is our blog: In addition to the
effervescent and charming group of regular bloggers (which includes
yours truly), we have added woodworking expert Sandor Nagyszalanczy
(a really big name in woodworking!), finishing expert Michael
Dresdner and wood species expert Tim Knight into our regular
rotation. With those additions, I think our blog has become the most
expert on the web. (And if you click here, you can read about it all
and get a chance to win something cool!)
Second are our downloadable woodworking plan offerings: Starting for as little as one buck (I am not making
that up!), there are hundreds of plans to search through - and you
can download them in a snap. In my opinion, if you can't find what
you want in our big pile of plans, you probably don't want to build
Third are our CD collections: My staff
has been putting tons of great woodworking plans and articles onto
CDs that you can search through, print out pages or just save for
future use. They are collections of some of our best stuff from more
than 30 years of magazines.
As I said, when I paused and looked at
what my staff had developed, I was truly impressed and thought that I
should share it with you. I hope that you find something interesting
in these efforts.
