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 it.
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.
